We had a cottage for 2 adults and 3 kids. It was immaculately clean and well kept. Loved the kitchen with a view to the alpacas on the farm. Very spacious and loved the toy box which kept my kid entertained for hours. Free wifi with great connectivity. Lovely hosts Gaye and Peter. Made us feel so welcome and we... More

Their property is spacious, comfortable, bright and not to mention spotless. The 5 of us did made it our home -... More

Forget the Ritz Carlton or the likes. This is the place to be in. The place is very, very clean and comfortable. Really a serene place for you to sit back and enjoy nature.

We were unable to find this place straight away due to 2 reasons: it was already 6plus and there are no street lights. And the unit number does not tally with GPS, and the sign board is so small. Anyway, other than that, the quality of the accommodation is great, better than most 4 star motels. The breakfast selection was... More

We were booked in to stay here on our last day of the otago central rail trail through shebikeshebikes. We picked the free car up from Hyde and drove out to Petes farm ( great hand drawn map Pete). The 100+ year old homestead has seen better days but this was outweighed with crisp clean linen and comfy beds. The... More

My wife and 3yr old daughter stayed 2 nights in the 2 bed cottage. This stay was the highlight of our holiday in NZ. Our little girl loved the animals at the farm stay, there are wineries a short drive away which pleased the wife and Pete & Gaye were the perfect hosts.

Stayed here for 2 nights during week on South Island, and I will forever think of Pete as personifying the NZ farmer--knowledgeable about lots of things, handy at even more, and willing to share his smile and home to foreigners and make them feel welcome. This is farmstay at its best, and not just for families. Stayed in the newest... More
