    Robert Jenkins and his family lived in the tiny cottage and cooked in their stone lean-to kitchen. Jenkins worked as a blacksmith across the yard next to the stables. This cottage and its outbuildings, dating probably from the 1870s or early 1880s gives a real sense of the life in nineteenth century Ophir in its years as a gold mining town and rural service centre. Nowadays, Ophir has a population of only 50 and New Zealand's second-lowest official temperature of -21.6 °C was recorded at Ophir on 3 July 1995, even though it is not located at a high elevation. As a general attractions, Ophir it's right in the middle of the Otago Central Rail trail which makes a perfect spot for cyclist but also, it has an important historical relevance and many beautiful landscapes.

The place is full of character, with many many different entertaining areas. It would be great to stay in all seasons. A must is the Blacks Hotel, full of character and very welcoming. Definitely a must stay if you are passing through real Central Otago.

    Hollyhock Cottage is surrounded by roses and stone-walls and is one of the gems on the historic main street of Ophir. Come and smell the thyme-infused air, explore the wee lanes and relax in the large garden.
    Hollyhock Cottage has been a much-loved home for generations of families. The roughcast and stone building has been built on to lovingly over the years to create a haven of nooks and crannies. There are 3 cosy bedrooms, a snug living area, a central kitchen and dining area, and a gorgeous sun-room. Outside there are six garden areas, including a courtyard, flower beds, a cricket lawn and horse-paddock. Bring your horse, bring your bikes and bring your fishing gear. Use the cottage as a writing retreat or use it as a base for family adventures.
    Hollyhock Cottage is nestled in Ophir village. This old gold-mining village has a historic post-office to explore with the friendliest post-mistress in New Zealand, a stunning cafe, a cosy pub and, on seasonal weekends, tantalising vintage shops. Roses, poppies, hollyhocks and lavender abound. Kids will love the well-maintained village pool in the summer and the snowballs and frost in winter. There are swimming holes, picnic areas and walking tracks close by. Ophir is walking distance to the beautiful Manuherikia River and the famous Daniel O'Connell bridge. Just a short 2 km bike ride over the river is Omakau and the Central Otago Rail Trail. The village is in the heart of Central Otago - 15 minutes car ride from Alexander and Clyde, just over one hour from Queenstown, and two hours from Dunedin.

  • Ophir is a quiet town that looks like only a few people, and the cottage is in the town centre, very quiet. The cabin is full of things, the owner also has a lot of blue and white porcelain plates, the backyard is a big pasture, and there is a sunny flower house. We stay in the hut and don't want to go, it is too comfortable, like Snow White's hut, hut The restaurant opposite is very good, the service aunt is very cute. I really hope that I can spend a little more time and stay for a few more nights.

    Ophir, Otago, New Zealand

    A cabin on a hillside made of gold in historic Bendigo, the best-kept secret in Central Otago. Surrounded by vineyards on a rustic landscape steeped in gold mining history. We're 30 minutes from Wanaka, 50 from Queenstown airport, at the heart of everything that makes Central Otago so beautiful and unique. There's much to explore from walks to wineries. Pour yourself a glass of vino, soak in the outdoor tub and be awed by the panoramic views and the starry night sky, you'll never want to leave.
    The cabin sleeps two guests comfortably in a Queen bed, with a full en-suite, kitchenette, wood burner and modern furnishings. The cabin has sliding doors that open out onto your decks that look over the panoramic surrounding views. On the bottom deck there is a sunken outdoor bath for you to soak all your worries away in. The night sky is something wonderful to behold here away from light pollution and if you're lucky you may even glimpse the magical Southern Lights in all their glory. The cabin is architecturally designed to have a small environmental footprint and sit in harmony with the natural landscape. It is perched high on a rocky outcrop at the foothills of the Dunstan Ranges, overlooking the expansive Clutha Basin with its pastoral scenes and enclosed on all sides by dramatic alpine mountain ranges. Your only neighbours are the surrounding vineyards in their ever-changing colours and the resident birdlife. Step inside and you will have all the comforts to help you forget your worries and slip into relaxation mode. The cabin is furnished to a high quality and all essentials are provided for. We are just a phone call away should you have any special requirements. A small kitchenette is provided for basic cold food preparation. It is not permitted to cook in the cabin for the comfort of all guests. You will find a toaster and kettle and a light breakfast, tea, and coffee are provided on arrival. We encourage guests to try one of the local restaurants for lunch or dinner - you will find a curated selection of our favourite spots in the cabins guidebook to help you to choose! There is a general store and cafe in Tarras 10mins away and a supermarket 15mins away in Cromwell for supplies also.
    Bendigo is located at the top of Lake Dunstan, in the heart of Central Otago... We are in the middle of nowhere and at the centre of everything! The area has a rich history of pioneer gold mining and merino farming and is best known today as one of the finest Pinot Noir producing regions in the Central Otago. The site is scattered with windswept Kanuka and ancient rock formations that lend the landscape a unique raw beauty. You will probably not want to leave the cabin, but if you do, Bendigo has a variety of activities for everyone. From scenic walks through the vineyards and hills straight from your cabin doorstep to the fascinating mining ruins of Bendigo a short 5 min drive down the road as well as beautiful swimming and fishing spots of the Clutha River and Lake Dunstan a stone's throw. The Tarras Golf Club is a must for anyone keen to try their hand at golf at its most chilled out-think sheep on the fairways! Bendigo also serves as a great base to explore everything else Central Otago has to offer. Want to get out for an hour or two? 15 minutes away in Cromwell, the Cromwell Old Town Area is a lovely spot to grab a coffee and check out the local art scene at small galleries there. It also plays host to an artisan food and craft market most weekends where you can try all the amazing local produce. Cromwell is the stone fruit mecca of New Zealand and if you are lucky enough to be here during the right season you may end up with a Cherry addiction! 5 minutes further down the road is Bannockburn, a striking wine region where you can indulge in an afternoon of wine tasting at a number of great wineries. For a half-day trip we suggest driving through the shear sided Dunstan Gorge to reach the small historic town of Clyde that has an impressive dam, a boutique cinema, and a selection of shops and restaurants. You can hire a bike and cycle part of the world-famous Central Otago Rail Trail as it follows the Clutha river toward Alexandra. If you carry on past Clyde toward the Manuherikia Valley you will be greeted with wide open landscapes, made famous by the New Zealand Landscape painter Graham Sydney. The area is has a number of traditional small-town pubs where you can stop for a meal and a handle and get a chance to meet some proper southern folk. For the adventurous (and 4WD capable) the Thompson's Gorge Track will bring you back over the Dunstan Range directly to Bendigo (via a bumpy high country track!) Further afield - a full day outing can get you anywhere from a hot spring in Tekapo, a bush walk at Mt Cook National Park or skiing in Wanaka or Queenstown. The options are endless!
  • Beautiful cosy cabin in a stunning spot. Highly recommend for a relaxing getaway 👍🏼

    Hannah2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

  • A dream - this was our favorite stay on our trip. Very relaxing and an amazing view.

    susan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful place to stay and we wish we had more time there. The views are breathtaking; we could have spent days sitting on the patio and gazing out at the valley below. Soaking in the outdoor tub as the sun set and the stars lit up made it feel like all was right with the world. I am certain that this will be one of my happy places that I can recall when I want to find peace. I may sound like I’m exaggerating, but I promise you I’m not; this cabin was remarkable and provided such a deep sense of rest and peace for us.

    Jacob2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a perfect mix of off-the-grid relaxation and scenic daytrips, the Dunstan cabin is the perfect spot. It's tiny and has the basics of everything you need — plus THAT bath. After a warm welcome by Harry the huntaway, we were blown away by the stunning view at the top of the stairs. The cosy cabin can get quite warm on a summer day but airs out rapidly in the evening breeze. Super comfortable bed, almost too comfortable because we ended up sleeping in most mornings! There's also plenty of storage for luggage. Wanaka is within easy distance, and we daytripped to Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park via the Clay Cliffs of Omarama (super cool) as well. The Cromwell Sunday market and Cloudy Bay Shed are also a must! Thanks Richie and Cynarra for making our honeymoon a memorable one (:

    Eliza2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. Can’t say enough great things about this cabin! Super cute, cozy, and private. The hot tub was amazing, and was able to gaze up and look at the stars in complete silence. Would recommend 100%

    A cabin on a hillside made of gold in historic Bendigo, the best-kept secret in Central Otago. Surrounded by vineyards on a rustic landscape steeped in gold mining history. We're 30 minutes from Wanaka, 50 from Queenstown airport, at the heart of everything that makes Central Otago so beautiful and unique. There's much to explore from walks to wineries to a day on the lake and skiing in Wanaka. Pour yourself a glass of Vino on the deck, soak in the panoramic view and you'll never want to leave.
    The cabin sleeps two guests comfortably in a Queen bed, with a full sized en-suite, kitchenette, wood burner and modern furnishings. The cabin has sliding doors that open out onto your deck that looks over the panoramic surrounding views. The cabin is architecturally designed to have a small environmental footprint and sit in harmony with the natural landscape. It is perched high on a rocky outcrop at the foothills of the Dunstan Ranges, overlooking the expansive Clutha Basin with its pastoral scenes and enclosed on all sides by dramatic alpine mountain ranges. Your only neighbours are the surrounding vineyards in their ever-changing colours and the resident birdlife. Step inside and you will have all the comforts to help you forget your worries and slip into relaxation mode. The cabin is furnished to a high quality and all essentials are provided for. We are just a phone call away should you have any special requirements. A small kitchenette is provided for basic cold food preparation. It is not permitted to cook in the cabin for the comfort of all guests. You will find a toaster and kettle and a light breakfast, tea, and coffee are provided on arrival. We encourage guests to try one of the local restaurants for lunch or dinner - you will find a curated selection of our favourite spots in the cabins guidebook to help you to choose! There is a general store and cafe in Tarras 10mins away and a supermarket 15mins away in Cromwell for supplies also.
    Bendigo is located at the top of Lake Dunstan, in the heart of Central Otago... We are in the middle of nowhere and at the centre of everything! The area has a rich history of pioneer gold mining and merino farming and is best known today as one of the finest Pinot Noir producing regions in the Central Otago. The site is scattered with windswept Kanuka and ancient rock formations that lend the landscape a unique raw beauty. You will probably not want to leave the cabin, but if you do, Bendigo has a variety of activities for everyone. From scenic walks through the vineyards and hills straight from your cabin doorstep to the fascinating mining ruins of Bendigo a short 5 min drive down the road as well as beautiful swimming and fishing spots of the Clutha River and Lake Dunstan a stone's throw. The Tarras Golf Club is a must for anyone keen to try their hand at golf at its most chilled out-think sheep on the fairways! Bendigo also serves as a great base to explore everything else Central Otago has to offer. Want to get out for an hour or two? 15 minutes away in Cromwell, the Cromwell Old Town Area is a lovely spot to grab a coffee and check out the local art scene at small galleries there. It also plays host to an artisan food and craft market most weekends where you can try all the amazing local produce. Cromwell is the stone fruit mecca of New Zealand and if you are lucky enough to be here during the right season you may end up with a Cherry addiction! 5 minutes further down the road is Bannockburn, a striking wine region where you can indulge in an afternoon of wine tasting at a number of great wineries. For a half-day trip we suggest driving through the shear sided Dunstan Gorge to reach the small historic town of Clyde that has an impressive dam, a boutique cinema, and a selection of shops and restaurants. You can hire a bike and cycle part of the world-famous Central Otago Rail Trail as it follows the Clutha river toward Alexandra. If you carry on past Clyde toward the Manuherikia Valley you will be greeted with wide open landscapes, made famous by the New Zealand Landscape painter Graham Sydney. The area is has a number of traditional small-town pubs where you can stop for a meal and a handle and get a chance to meet some proper southern folk. For the adventurous (and 4WD capable) the Thompson's Gorge Track will bring you back over the Dunstan Range directly to Bendigo (via a bumpy high country track!) Further afield - a full day outing can get you anywhere from a hot spring in Tekapo, a bush walk at Mt Cook National Park or skiing in Wanaka or Queenstown. The options are endless!
  • This air bnb is a must if you are on the South Island! The cabin is gorgeous! And the views and serenity are the best you will find. Bannockburn Hotel for lunch is a must and Maori Point Vineyard has produced some of the best wine we have ever tasted. All within driving distance of this air bnb!

    Our guest accommodation is a good sized double bedroom with a new Queen sized bed. The large windows in the room provide a wonderful view out to the surrounding countryside and the star filled night sky. Breakfast items provided include bread for toast, jams / conserves, muesli / cereal, yogurt and our farm fresh eggs. All amenities in our home are shared
    Located on over 15ha, we finished building our home at the end of 2016. As a panelised building, it's fairly unique for this area. Architecturally designed, it blends into the surrounding environment. The interior is lined with a beautiful ply which is light and modern. We enjoy welcoming guests to share our home with us. We have a herd of around 40 adult goats - some of which have been hand raised and enjoy welcoming our guests if it means that they will get a scratch and potentially a treat :-). Seasonally we also have the goat kids that we breed.
    Our nearest neighbour is approximately 400 metres away and as there is very little light pollution in our area, it is an ideal spot for star gazing (or spotting satellites as they fly over). Alexandra township is approximately a 10-15 minute drive from our property as is the beautiful historical Clyde.
  • Angela and her daughter Maria were great hosts and her home is so lovely, I’d highly recommend! The place is absolutely beautiful and there was a feast for breakfast each morning. Her dogs coco and kyro are such sweethearts too! Definitely not to be missed :)

Unlike long drops and chemical toilets it does not smell and there are no pesky flies buzzing about. It was warm and cost in the garlic tent. Wanda booked us in to the local pub for dinner where we had a good / huge meal with local wine.

The cottage has its own private access and driveway with plenty of parking space and is 50 metres from the main house. Walk along the skyline above the cottage to see fantastic views of Alexandra and towards Clyde. Take in the beauty of the Alexandra township lights at night. There is plenty of room for boats, trailers etc.
    A great place to spend time as a couples getaway or time spent with family or friends. Enjoy what Central Otago has to offer, walking tracks, boating and fishing on the nearby Clutha River and Lake Dunstan. Walk or cycle the Rail Trail from Clyde, which is only a 10 minute drive from Brae Cottage. Sample some of the fabulous wines from our local vineyards. Enjoy the cafes and eateries nearby in the Alexandra & Clyde townships.
  • Above and beyond what we expected being new to Airbnb. Fantastic location, super clean, comfortable and private cottage. A home away from home created with great personal touches. Highly recommend to anyone needed a little retreat! Jackie is a very good communicator and makes you feel very welcome. Thanks again!

    Nadia2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • I can’t recommend this place enough. It has everything you need, a fantastic location on a gorgeous property which our one year old loved! The house was immaculate and had everything we needed including a high chair and portacot which was very accommodating. The hosts are lovely!! I’m hoping something brings us to Alex so we can stay here again.

    Courtney2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

It is small but well suited for a single traveller or couple. The property is right in the town of Alexandra in Central Otago an easy walking distance to the central business area. Angie is very sociable and happy to help her guests with any issues and suggestions of things to do or places to go for a meal. The Ferris Street Brewery is just around the corner and it's a great place for puzza and beer or wine! We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Angie's place and would recommend her place for any future travellers.

    Located on the plains of the Maniototo and with access to the Otago Rail Trail, our house is an historic farmstead, built in the 1880s. We have lovingly refurbished the house, retaining the character of its past while incorporating the needs of the modern age. This listing is for our spacious 'Whero Room' with private ensuite. Please check out our other listing 'Taradale Homestead - Kākāriki Room' if you need the additional room. It, too, has two beds and access nearby to a private bathroom.
    The Whero Room is furbished with two very comfortable king single beds and has a large private ensuite. You'll also enjoy cozy electric blankets, TV (freeview and Netflix channels) and expansive views of the beautiful Ida Valley from every window. Northwest facing, the room gets maximum sun. The bedroom leads on to a sun porch and outdoor area with table, chairs and sun umbrella.
    Big skies (perfect for stargazing), beautiful mountain ranges, and 360-degree views. Not another house in sight. Oturehua village is a 10-minute drive away. 15 minutes to Ophir and Omakau 30mins to Alexandra 1.5 hours to Queenstown 2 hours to Dunedin
  • We loved Tarradale Homestead. The scenery getting to and around it is spectacular. It’s calm and peaceful there, yet there’s still things to see and do in the area. Paula and Steve were superb hosts. Every little detail was taken care of - tea, coffee, bikkies, cold water by the entrance to the bedroom. Our own space to sit out on the terrace in the sunshine. An extraordinary big bathroom with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, huge huggy bath towels. And very comfy beds. Their knowledge of the area was extensive and their love of living there evident. They shared their knowledge willingly. Each day they provided an appetising breakfast which we loved. And we paid to have an evening meal prepared by them on the first night. It was homemade, delicious and amazing value. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tarradale to others. And if we return to the area, we would stay there again. Paula and Steve made a big contribution to our wonderful stay in Central Otago.

    Michael2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a rare and precious thing when Life conspires to provide exactly the circumstances required to move ahead with a project or a plan, and especially so when it delivers unexpected connections. Our stay at Taradale Homestead was designed around a personal pilgrimage to ancestral ground in the Ida Valley. Not only was the accommodation perfectly located and comfortable, Paula and Steve offered more than exceptional hospitality; they cheerfully went out of their way to help us locate places we wished to visit and introduce us to local contacts keen to share information. It was a wonderful visit, and it was fun. Thank you Paula and Steve.

    Miriam Louisa2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Paula and Steve are lovely hosts and we had a wonderful stay. The room has windows on three sides and gives awesome views of the Ida Valley. You can even have a view of the beautiful nightsky from the bed. The breakfast was great. Four cute cats roam the house. We definitely recommend staying here!

    Daniela2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • An outstanding example of old-fashioned country hospitality in a rather old-fashioned part of New Zealand. You stay in a 1950s-style guest bedroom with ensuite, glazed all around with windows that give a 270-degree view of the countryside. The homestead is lined with books. Friendly host Paula comes from a literary background, knows everything about the locality and gave us a few tips about places to visit, along with service over and above the usual Airbnb. NB the place can be a little hard to find at dusk (lettering on the gateposts is in red and the house is set back from the road, though visible.)

    Chris2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice room with everything you need and a little bit more. Lovely hosts and amazing hospitality. We wish we could've stayed longer.

    Jule2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Meaghan2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • When travelling abroad, one can sometimes feel alone or like a total outsider tourist just scraping the surface of a culture and country. Noeline and Richard broke that sentiment by being the most friendly people that I have ever encountered in my travels. They gave tips to local vineyards and hiking opportunities, chatted about the local history, and were accommodating to every request. Staying with Noeline and Richard was a truly special experience and I highly recommend it.

    Ustun2019-02-12T00:00:00Z

    Mike2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Quite simply Noeline’s place is just incredible. Absolutely stunning home with amazing hosts. We had the best time here and our three year old still talks about feeding the chooks. Thank you again for having us, we can’t wait to come back some day! If you are going anywhere near this area you must stay here.

    This unit is the Nave of a modified 120 yrs old Church. It is a self contained place ready for you to use as a base or home as you explore Central Otago, from curling in Naseby, to skiing in Queenstown, or just rest and enjoy the peacefulness of a rural Central Otago village. Nearby are hotels and cafes, service station and golf course or fish in the Manuherikia River. Try your luck for gold mining.
    This is a church built in 1897, converted in 2017 for accommodation. Enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of an old gold mining town of Ophir. If you don't want to cook, there is a first class restaurant, and a local hotel, both in close walking distance.
    Ophir is an Old gold mining town of the latter 1800's. Many of its buildings have survived and been restored. The oldest and still working Post Office is a great place to visit and read of the village's history. Pitches Store is a restaurant/cafe and of course St Andrew's Church, your accommodation. Join in when functions are on in the village hall or the petanque tournament in February.
  • beautiful place the area is full of historical buildings and bridges. we enjoyed the river cruise on the Clyde river . very comfy bed. owners avilable and helpful. I would stay again. I appreciate the seat in the shower and used it when i had a shower.

  • This place is full of character and has been very well converted. Many of the original features have been retained. The nave is a lovely big space with everything you need. The vestry is cosy and comfortable. Ophir is a cute little town and provides a great base to explore the area. We had a meal at Blacks hotel which was a good standard and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again.

    Carolyn2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay. Well equipped and with a lovely bath - something some may be missing if travelling. We enjoyed lovely meal ( not cheap) at the Pitcher and also beer outside there. There are other places to eat - a choice in a beautiful village is great bonus. However the kitchen is well equipped to cook - good NW supermarket in Alexàndra. Ophir is only 2km from rail trail and bike hire near by so perfect to cycle part of trail if you don't want to do all. Head east for best views. A 40 km ish round trip with bit of a climb takes you to great scenery and also cafe stop for lunch. Really recommend and Russell was great host. Perfect place to enjoy this special part of central Otago!

  • Thank you to Jo and her husband for a lovely stay and guidance for the rest of our tour in NZ. Good place to stay if you are in and around Cromwell.

  • The town of Cromwell is quiet and beautiful, and the houses of Jo and Bruce are clean and beautiful. The couple Jo is very friendly, but unfortunately their English is not good, otherwise they can communicate more.

  • A nice place to stay. Comfortable bed and pretty bathroom. A convenient stop off if you are going biking on the Otago Rail Trail.

    Country cottage set on 10 acres with direct access onto Otago Central Rail Trail. Perfect for a weekend getaway, family holiday, biking the rail trail or just chilling out. She's not historic or luxurious but she is clean and comfortable and the views from the deck across farmland to the Hawkdun Range are just great. Nearby Lauder village offers a great coffee stop at Stationside Cafe and the evening meals at the Lauder Hotel are legendary (but you must book ahead). Twin room can be super King
    Brookside Cottage is the perfect place to base yourself to explore the Manuherikia, St Bathans and Maniototo areas and with Queenstown and Wanaka within a 90 minute drive a day on the ski slopes is an option.
    The thing that makes Lauder so special is it's country feel. The locals are welcoming, approachable and ready to share their local knowledge with you.

    Since the 1920s the Poolburn Hotel has been the meeting place of the Ida Valley. Nestled in the remote highlands of Central Otago, between Dunedin and the Lakes District, the valley is an adventure mecca. No longer a pub, we now offer lodging and guided activities to adventurers from afar. You'll relax in a recently renovated room, with ensuite. Please send a message if you have any special requirements or are interested in some activities.
    What adventures are on offer? Some of our favourites include: Biking the Poolburn Gorge Tunnels & Viaduct, the highlight of the iconic Rail Trail. Fishing in the Poolburn Reservoir with a picnic lunch (possibly) including freshly caught Koura crayfish. Mountain bike shuttles on the downhill tracks above the historic township of Clyde. Cross country mountain biking in the rocky terrain of Alexandra or pine forests of Naseby. Horse riding in the valley, made famous by the Riders of Rohan from The Lord of The Rings movies. Standup paddleboarding on the beautiful Blue Lake at St Bathans. Winery tour of the vineyards around Alexandra, home to some classic Central Otago Pinot Noirs.
    The pub is surrounded by farmland. The dirt road to the Poolburn Reservoir is bumpy but accessible to 2WD vehicles except in winter.
  • Cool place for biking and trips to Queentown etc. Wifi works fine on the whole terrain and the lawn and the hammock are already now perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the sun. Sara the chef is a fab cook - make sure you eat there!

  • Had a great stay with Mark and Matt! They are very friendly, amazing hospitality. Check out Muddy Creek Cafe in Omakau, probably the best pies I've ever had

  • Mark and Matt were the best! Nothing but good things to say about the pub. Mark is a great cook and they made me feel right at home. Lots of things to do in the area and they gave me some good places to see on the rest of my trip. The place is going to look so nice when all the renovations are done! Highly recommend!

  • Mark and Matt are great hosts! The accomodation is really comfortable and quiet, the food is great and both of the hosts are good company. They took me out cray fishing and we enjoyed having them for dinner later on. This is a great spot where you can be comfortable kicking back and relaxing, or getting out and exploring the area. Highly recommended.

  • Mark is a great host, and the old Poolburn Pub is already a cool venue, but will be an amazing place to stay when its all finished

    Dave & Asuma2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Mark's place was so different than anywhere we've stayed, we had such a great time! Mark offers the option to get dinner/breakfast and has drinks available for purchase as well, and it was so worth it. Everything was so fresh and yummy, it just added to the overall experience at this unique space! Mark was super hospitable and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome!

  • This is easily the coolest spot I’ve stayed in New Zealand! It’s a restored/repurposed pub that serves as an authentic, outdoory Airbnb. Mark is an amazing host and goes out of his way to make sure people have a great time. I had the best sleep of my life here. The dogs are incredibly fun and friendly. The breakfast is amazing. You really feel like you’re part of the family. I 110% recommend staying here, it will be one of your favorite experiences in NZ. Thanks Mark!
