This charming semi detached farmhouse with European flair, is located in a peaceful, quiet, rural setting with mature gardens + plenty of lawn space for games like Pole Tennis, Petanque and Frisbee, just to name a few. A swinging tyre from a tree will entertain the kids for hours.

There are horses, alpaca, doves, aviary birds, geese + chooks to enjoy as well as a friendly dog, cat and goat.

The open plan living area opens up to a private verandah with comfortable outdoor furniture to enjoy a BBQ.

The place is self contained with a fully equipped kitchen + dining area and an exquisite lounge with Rimu floors and handmade rugs.

This was home for us for 3 nights for me, my wife and our 3 boys (7, 5 and 2 years old). The boys loved all the animals: dog, the chickens, the goats, the alpacas and the horse. The home was wonderful with everything we needed. An absolutely fantastic experience

Plenty of room for our family of four, clean and comfy with everything you could need. Lovely peaceful spot, the garden is amazing and the children loved the animals (especially Ben the dog!). Close to Whakatane and surrounds. Would stay again.

This property is amazing, even better than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing, even better than we expected. Fantastic country experience in a cottage with so much character. A huge lawn to play cricket with the kids, animals to feed, incredible gardens, etc. We enjoyed staying out of town but being so accessible to everything the area has to offer. Easily the best holiday house we've stayed. Noticed it's won awards too - no wonder!

We loved our time at Awakeri Woolcraft and wished we had been able to stay there longer.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Awakeri Woolcraft and wished we had been able to stay there longer. The house is well located, ten minutes from Whakatane, but close enough to everything we wanted to do (beaches, hiking, shopping, hot springs, seals). The property is beautiful with spectacular gardens, friendly animals, and Ben, the perfect dog. Our kids (12, 14, 16) enjoyed the farm so much that they want us to move. The house was very clean and comfortable, just right for our family of five. Stay there!
