Overview

Photos and Description of this Waimakariri District holiday farmhouse

Farmstay, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This is a gorgeous timber Riverside Retreat, simply Known as "The Shack".

It's off the grid and fully self contained with most of the comforts of home.

*A log burner which heats your water

*Solar powered lights at the flick of a switch

*Chrystal clear running water for drinking and showering and yes we do have flush loo's

The setting is Private, Peaceful and Relaxing.

The Shack is rustic and cosy.

This is as close as you will get to the 'outback' but only minutes away from the city.

Two rivers to enjoy! Both the Ashley and the Okuku for walking, swimming and fishing plus heaps of fun to be had for those with their own mountain bikes,motorbikes or horses (BYO only).

Horse paddocks available @$15per horse pn

Just 10 mins to Rangiora Township for plenty of Cafes and Restaurants or head 20 mins north for a great selection of wineries.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

Fantastic secluded location.

Fantastic secluded location. The shack is an experience everyone should have if getting back to basics is needed...we loveed not being caught up in our technology and enjoying the 'countryside' with the dogs. Highly recommend!

We liked the rustic nature of the place, but it had everything you could need. We also really like the location, complete privacy, and such a lovely remote feel.
