The SpaceWe offer two private rooms, both are beautiful and spacious including en-suite, complementary tea and coffee facilities, mini fridge, heating and all amenities. The rooms can be set as twin or super king and have large glass bi-fold doors to enjoy the mountain views.
A third room is also available if you are traveling as group or family of three or more, containing bunk beds. This room has a separate entrance adjacent to the others with it's own T.V. and DVD player. Please let us know if you would like to book this room as well and if you are bringing children, give their age so we can accommodate more specifically for them.
The guest rooms are attached to our hunting lodge style home which facilitates our life in all things deer.
Please note that we do not currently offer cooking facilities, however there are plenty of restaurants and cafes a short drive away. Guest AccessWe welcome you to explore the gardens, you can watch and feed the deer around the house. Take a stroll through the farm, have a picnic in the native forest and enjoy the sounds and sights of NZ native birds, such as; wood pigeons, fantails, tui and falcons. Interaction with GuestsWe will be on the farm throughout your stay and would love to chat with you about the farm, it's history, the deer and what we do. The NeighborhoodA mostly dairy farming community, the grass is green all year round. Whataroa is home to the NZ white heron and is the only place in NZ where this bird nests, tours to their nest site can be booked in the township. The township contains a shop / cafe, a pub and a fuel station. Getting AroundA vehicle is a must in this area and gives you absolute freedom to explore. There is plenty of parking here at the farm. Other Things to NoteWe have a friendly Labrador named Sir Digsalot aka Digby, who loves to visit our guests for pats.
