My husband (NIc) and I live in the heart of one of Hamiltons oldest suburb. it is only minutes from the heart of the city, river walks, intertainment and Hamilton night life. Our beautiful home is filled with Kiwiana art, which complements the large open style living. The area for overseas vistors is a lovely one room cottage and bathroom looking out to our beautiful English Garden -although away from the main house, it is close enough not to feel isolated. Enjoy the alfresco dinning during Summer or the cosy winter warmth inside the large ktchen/dinnig area in front of the gas fire with us. My cooking is to die for so I have been told. Relax and enjoy your special holiday in heart of the North Island, just down from where The Hobbits was flimed in New Zealand. What are you waiting for - Hope to see you soon!!

The SpaceWooden full height north facing windows throughout the living area give an amazing sense of being on the farm in this beautiful setting .. With 15 acres to yourself you can enjoy the luxury of privacy and a quiet rural location.. it's hard to believe the city is so close. An Ideal base to explore auckland and come home to enjoy rural NZ and relax by the pool. The house is in good condition with a majority of its original design features still intact it will excite lovers of 1960's modern architecture and furniture. Guest AccessExclusive use of the house and farm to yourself Large pool 18 m long 15 acres to explore Cows Chickens and free range fresh eggs Football pitch On a nice summer night we reccommend sitting round the pool and enjoying the stars Interaction with GuestsCall us anytime The NeighborhoodThis is a very upmarket and safe rural area. Karaka is some of the best and highest value farm country in New Zealand with high growth pasture and flat to rolling countryside . The area is well known for race horse breeding and dairy farms. lifestyle farms with large mansion houses are common .. Our house is situated down a no exit private country lane where everyone knows eachother and Neighbours wave as they pass by. WATER - We have our own deep bore for water .. this is natural untreated mineral water and it is great for drinking ( our water is also bottled and sold in supermarkets) Our water runs through every tap on the farm and it is great for washing hair and skin because it is very soft and does not contain any chemicals like chlorine which are normally found in town water. This water will not make your skin feel slimy .. It is the opposite - you will actually need less soap for washing ! Guests that are used to chemically treated town water supply will notice a big difference. The mineral water is a really great feature of this house Getting AroundA car is highly recommended Our house makes an Ideal base to explore the upper north island .. Auckland or the Waikato / coromandel area - 4 mins drive to the motorway interchange. - 20 mins to auckland airport - 25 mins to Auckland city centre. - 1.5 hours to the beautiful coromandel beaches - 1.5 hours to Hamilton / caimbridge / waitomo - 1 hour to the north shore Auckland is a very spread out city and public transport is not easy (complicated slow and expensive) so you really do need a car to get around efficiently and economically .. if you are visiting from overseas - I recommend a rental car.. They are good value at the airport and It will end up being a relatively cheap and good option during your stay. (One small Taxi or uber ride will cost the same as a full day car rental) - this is a rural area there really is no public transport anyway - come home and relax on the farm with a swim in the pool or a nice rural walk along a quiet country road. Other Things to NoteCLEANING FEE = laundry only Our cleaning fee only covers washing the sheets and towels after you leave (we take it all to the launderette - wash - bring it back - then remake the beds ). We expect that our guests do their own cleaning and tidy up before they leave . To be clear. It is the guest responsibility to : Clean dishes, clean the kitchen, mop / vacuum the floor, clean the bathroom. Please leave our home as you found it - clean / tidy and ready for the next guests. If you prefer not to do house cleaning, we can arrange for a commercial cleaner after you leave - she charges $80 per hour plus travel costs.. Please understand .. this is different to a hotel .. we do not include house cleaning in our fees (except for sheets and towels) . the guest is responsible for cleaning
