Discover The Kiwi Farming Lifestyle!

Stay on a real New Zealand farm and share in our love of the land, its plants and animals.


Our home is situated 1.5km up the Takamatua valley, only 5km from Akaroa. We farm sheep and cattle and usually have a menagerie of cats, dogs, horses, and orphaned farm animals around. Hanne is a keen horse woman and Danish in origin, speaking the language fluently.


We invite you to enjoy some good old-fashioned country hospitality in our spacious, yet cosy, farmhouse.
