True new Zealand rural experience.
Amazing and cute place with a beautiful view over the valley and a garden. With a lot of kitchen amenities and spark cleanness, this is the perfect retreat for when you're traveling or hiking around the area. Jan took care of all our needs and was a perfect host. Can totally recommend.
This cottage is situated on one of the most beautiful farms you'll ever see...gorgeous scenery, peaceful, and some amazing old trees, including the largest gum tree in the southern hemisphere. Jan welcomed us with a few treats from the farm, even though her family was on holiday that week as well. Perfectly restful retreat!

About your host, Jan
I am lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of New Zealand where my husband and I, farm our 1100 acre block. It is a sheep and beef farm and I choose to move the stock out the back of the farm by running there with my dogs, as I really enjoy seeing the amazing countryside and wildlife, hearing the birds, frogs and watching the seasons change, but the highlight for me is seeing some deer.
Of course it is not always easy and life is very busy on the farm especially in the hot summer moving lambs in the early morning or evening to avoid the heat. We have 2 mobs of bulls that need shifting daily and there are plenty of jobs to do.
The Lodge is a great part of my life, I love meeting the guests and being able to show them our piece of paradise, listening to their experiences, sharing their delight at the secluded location of the Lodge and offering them advice about the Waikaremoana area and walks.
We have 4 children, Hannah is 22 a compliance officer, Alex, 20, a diesel mechanic apprentice in Wairoa, William, 19, at Canterbury Uni and Claire 17, year 12 at Napier Girls. The house swells on the holidays and the children help on the farm when required. They are a great help at the Lodge and very capable of doing it on their own and enjoy chatting with the guests.
