Lovely, Friendly and Convenient.
We were returning our campervan to Auckland in the morning so brilliant location, near to a car wash but enough off the main trail to have an authentic kiwi feel. Great facilities shower and toilet, beaut view. The owners and fellow guests were so welcoming even allowing us to cook in their home kitchen.

Wonderful quiet and peaceful site... amazing views, spotless kitchen and showers and amazing hosts. Penny and Anita went out of their way to make sure I had a great time. They were approachable and friendly but happy to let me enjoy the place... even cooked pancakes for me!!

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!

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 ☺️
