Situated in a quiet paradise on the edge of Waihi bush looking straight out to Waihi peak and built within a stroll to the Waihi river, the barn is a true escape from city life, less than 2 easy hours drive from Christchurch.
Purpose built for accommodation, the barn is very spacious with a high vaulted ceiling. It comprises an open plan living/kitchen and numerous options for open plan sleeping (6+ and well suited for a couple/ family or group.
Take a holiday from your cell phone and screens - we are proudly back to basics (no internet or cellphone but a landline and TV available for emergencies!).
You may choose to just enjoy the tranquility of the ponies and other farm animals and we have a well loved country garden. We enjoy carriage driving; our ponies are driven most days during summer. Chickens and sheep provide a full "farm stay" experience but with the privacy of some distance between the barn and main house.
The barn is just a short drive from Geraldine, where we enjoy all the facilities of NZs favorite small town. Great coffee and cuisine and the opportunity to sample a unique movie theatre, bush walks, locally produced gourmet cheese, chocolate and fruit products await.
Cleaning will be provided for $50 per stay. Linen hire for $5.00 per person and for breakfast and other meals, please call to discuss.
Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$5.00 per person);
Fabulous BBQ area
Such a wonderful few days. Caring, generous hosts who provide over and above. So many little touches that made the stay fabulous. Such a beautiful setting - the kids can't wait to return!
great location, very peaceful and picturesque
A barn converted into a loft. A very original set up with a living room up on what seems like a stage (lots of great books on the shelves I wish I had had more time to read). Chicken and horses can be seen from the windows. A lovely fireplace which Belinda and Steve had ready for us to use when we arrived.
Stunning space, tastefully furnished, kitchen garden fabulous for fresh vegetables. Stunning flower garden. Only negative - uncomfortable pull out couch bed. Proper double bed which could be stored against wall would help. Peaceful beautiful spot.
Beautifully well equipped and even earl grey tea in the cupboard! Peaceful sanctuary.
This has been the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. We didn't want to leave.
The barn has a lovely warm atmosphere which wraps itself around you. The log burner and open plan living with incredible views will leave you wanting to come back. Go visit !!
