Peaceful country farm house retreat
- Smoking Allowed
- Pets Allowed

The house is a large 3 bedroom house which has been our family home for 50 years. We have rented our beach home for many years and some guests sugeested we rent our farm house so people can experience a rural stay near the tourist locations. (Go to holidayhouses website 1754 to see reviews for the beach house). This farm house listing starts in Sept. 2015Guest Access
You have access to all of the house though one room is locked where we store some of our personal belongings. There is a garage for your vehicle linked to the house by an internal staircase.Interaction with Guests
You will be met by the owner (please don't arrive too late) or someone else to make sure your stay gets off to a great start. Guests will be given organic (fresh or frozen depending on the season) blueberries which have been grown on the farm. Any questions at other times can be answered by phone or email.The Neighborhood
For overseas visitors (and New Zealand ones) the location is central to Rotorua, Hamilton, and Taupo (all less than 1 hour away by car). Waitomo Caves are a bit further (1.5 hours). We find that when we go away we like to rent a house and "set up home" so that we can be the tourist and know we have a "home" to return to. You could do the same here.Getting Around
You will need to have your own transport as public transport is infrequent.Other Things to Note
This is a rural property so be prepared for peace and quiet, with clean New Zealand air, sunshine (and sometimes rain); and beautiful clear starlit nights. There are many trees near the house filled with bird song and around the house extensive native plantings have been done in 2014.
