Luc and Catherine will host you for a quiet, restful life from a sustainable pleasant farm in a natural environment in the center of the Bay of Islands.
We offer one bedroom with 2 single beds in a separate building than the farm house.
We are located about 30 km from Paihia, 30 km from Matahauri bay, 20 Km from the Puketi forest with splendid Kauri trees and the walks, Kerikeri is only 2 km away .
The bathroom has just been renovated.
The main house is open (kitchen, dinning room) to enjoy the warmth of a wood-stove.
A communal room is available ( reading books , playing table tennis and board games, watch movies or just relax in a quiet place). The room is insulated but there is no heater so in winter take a jumper for the fresh Kerikeri nights.
The composting toilet is in another separate building (about 20 m away).
As we are running the farm you could experience work and life with animals like cows, sheep, chickens, ducks and cat or relaxing in the orchard and vegetable garden
You may even enjoy milking the house cow or/and doing some butter and cheese.
Breakfast can be taken at the farm house with the owner . This is a good time to share life and family experiences or /and stories. The food ( HOME MADE, ORGANIC AND FRESH) comes mainly from our farm .There are no cooking facilities in the bed room therefore we do not allow food in them but the owner kitchen is open. Meals (Lunch or dinner) can be taken with the owner and we ask NZ$20 per meal per person
Washing can be organised at extra cost.
