Unique kiwi experiences for you


We have a horse stud on the property, owned by our son and daughter-in-law, so at certain times of the year there are foals to be visited.
We are 10 minutes from Awastone Rafting Centre and café, where you can have rafting or kayaking excursions, and enjoy a delicious bar meal at the Café.
We are on the Manawatu Scenic Route, which is also part of the Manawatu Cycle Way, between Mangaweka and Palmerston North.

About your host, Sue

Sue's Photo


We, Sue & David, have been hosting people for 35 years. We are fortunate to have our son Matt and daughter-in-law Leonie, who have a Sport Horse Stud, now living on the farm, so it is really a family business. They help us with the hosting, taking total control during the winter months when David and I guide people in Europe. That is our "winter" business, but of course it will not be possible to travel there this year so we will be looking forward to hosting fellow New Zealanders here at home!
