Such a sweet host. Seeing all the cows and watching the sunrise over the country was beautiful. Clean, and a nice hot shower.

I would recommend it!

Excellent place. Amazing views, good value, and very friendly and sociable owners. Brilliant elevated campsite facing West allowing you to watch the sun rise over the Waikato.

Great place, perfect view and very friendly hosts. space for 2 campers, little difficult at the end but we made it easily with a 6berth camper. Great hats with view also for backpackers.
Friendly dogs and calves, perfect also for our 4 year old son.
perfect place for last days in New Zealand for us, thanks.

Can’t understand the review from Aylin. No idea what she expected... that’s a little farm with a kind of backpacker side business.

I really enjoyed the time here. The hosts (two older lady’s are really lovely and helpful)
I hitchhiked the last 3km to this place and at the morning I left, one of them brought me to a bigger street with more traffic and better chances for hitchhiking.
15$ to pitch a tent and 30$ for a bed in the shared room.
Beds, toilet, bath and kitchen was very clean and nearly new.

Would like to stay here again ☺️

It's very hard to come in with a motor home, NO LONG VEHICLE ACCESS

When we arrived there there was no one there, backdoor was open with lights on, called inside and no answer. Had big troubles coming in and had bigger ones getting out again after not even staying there. View was nice but the place just looked dodgy

We absolutely loved our 1 night stay here on the farm. We stayed in one of the cabins which had a stunning view over the countryside. The place has character - not just a soulless motor camp! The owners are super friendly, and we ended up enjoying our dinner whilst watching the rugby with them! Highly recommended.

Beautiful spot, found it in the dark and rain about 14km off State Highway 1. Very friendly, had no reservation but welcomed us immediately. Bathroom, shower, kitchen, beds as well as tent or vehicle spots. The view is tremendous.
