Mahaanui cottage farmstay is a private, stand alone cottage located in the beautiful Tiniroto area half way between Gisborne and Wairoa on the inland road. [aprox 50 minutes driving either way].

You are welcome to go walking over the farmland and fish some special spots in the nearby river. There are two marked walking trails that leave from the cottage.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hidden little gem!

The cottage is neatly situated and very peaceful with the delight of listening to the local wildlife (birds) throughout the day.

Inside the cottage has all the adequate appliances to make our stay more easy going.

It's a real delight to sit out on the deck and to take in the sheer beauty that surrounds it! We hope to be back one day as this cottage offers complete peace, relaxation, and much more.

Beautiful farm stay at a remote location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful farm stay at a remote location. We came in spring so we were lucky to see the cherry blossoms at the backyard, the spring lambs and the cute piglets. Simon is very kind to take us for a farm tour. The house is spacious, cozy and beautiful, a nice rural retreat indeed. We played family board games by the fire at rainy night, and put on gumboots to walk around the farm. We also drove around and explored the area. What a wonderful place!
