What a beautiful farm Jim and Libby have and what an amazing experience it was to stay there for a few days. They made us feel like family, cooked excellent food, took us on walks through the farm, it was perfect ! The accommodation is spacious, spotless and really comfortable perfect for a family. The location is a short drive from cambridge and hobbiton, so really convenient.
We really enjoyed meeting Jim and Libbys friends, family and all their animals, we were lucky to stay at the time the puppies were still there, all 9 of them ! :)
Libby and Jim - Thank you again for your incredible hospitality and warmth, would love to come and see you guys again !
dont hesitate to book this, if you want an unforgettable farm stay in NZ this is it ! :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kauri Lodge is situated 13 kms from Cambridge New Zealand in the lovely Karapiro farming district. Your hosts, Jim & Libby Telfer, have enjoyed visitors from all over the world and New Zealand, and will do their best to make sure your stay in the Waikato is a memorable and enjoyable experience. We are close to our lovely LAKE KARAPIRO, home of our Olympic Rowers, and also popular for water skiing, swimming, kayaking, jet-boating, river cruises and fishing. It is a short drive from Kauri Lodge to HOBBITON of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Cambridge is a beautiful "town of trees" and has many attractions including cafes and restaurants. An approximate one hour drive takes you to the famous WAITOMO CAVES, Raglan beach on the west coast, Mt Maunganui on the east coast, or to ROTORUA. We have a two bedroom apartment and also a studio unit at Kauri Lodge. Each bedroom in the apartment has a queen and a single bed, plus there is a single bed in the lounge. There is a very large private guest lounge and kitchen/dining area. The studio unit has a queen bed and kitchen/dining/lounge (it is a different part of the farm from the apartment). There are impressive views of our farm and the Waikato Countryside from our expansive decks where you can also enjoy a private BBQ. A short walk can take you to a beautiful native bush reserve. We offer Bed & Breakfast or you can just rent the apartment as a holiday home. We welcome children, and pets are also welcome by arrangement. ... more less
