Waikonini Homestead
Ranked #115 of 383 Canterbury Region B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Peel forest is approx. 20 minute from the Geraldine township, but is filled with wonderful native bush walks and the Rangitata River. Waikonini is a homestead that is worth visiting... Plenty of rooms to choose from and a lovely dinner cooked (for a little extra of course, but totally worth it). Check out the website for more information - we booked through Air b'n'b.Offers all that a bed and breakfast would, plus more. Relax in the large garden, or keep warm by the fire. Fantastic stay. Highly recommend.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

Waikonini is a lovely place for a relaxing retreat, away from the hustle & bustle of city life, yet only 20 minutes from the village of Geraldine which offers basic shops, cafes and attractions. The host, Mary, will go out of her way to make you feel at home, and the size of the house allows you to stay with privacy and really relax. The house is surrounded with a beautiful established garden, lush farmland, and native bush. It was lovely to wake to the sound of the birds signing from the native bush less than 100m from the house. The homestead is a Victorian masterpiece and has a brilliant new kitchen and conservatory. We enjoyed taking a walk down the paper road from the house, seeing and hearing stags in the roar, as well as sitting on the veranda with a book taking in the peace and quiet on an autumn afternoon. We left after a weekend of wonderful relaxation and food, and will be sure to return when next in South Canterbury, and plan to do some bush walks in the area at the same time.
