We are a small self sufficient farm with friendly goats, donkeys, alpacas and cattle. We have free range chickens in the orchard and ducks on the pond. We grow much of our own fruit and vegetables. We have 87 acres of hillside you are welcome to explore. Right on the main road, but peaceful and private, we are only 30 minutes' drive from Dunedin city centre, and 10 minutes from delightful beaches, friendly villages, and a bird sanctuary.
“Great accommodation with Christine, in the middle of a beautiful mountainous area with lots of animals. Christine is a very nice host who cares and gives us a delicious breakfast with homemade bread, tomatoes from our own garden, even gem. Jam and freshly laid eggs. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the property.”
*****Treat yourself to a unique luxury winter getaway ***** Located close to town with stunning views over the basilica to the sea. Styled in a futuristic genre set in an 1800’s world, our Steampunk loft apartment features a mix of recycled materials remodeled for today’s purpose. This is an exceptional space to indulge your inner steampunk fantasy while enjoying a warm modern industrial space with all the luxuries you deserve for your stay in Oamaru.
“Jan’s steampunk place is a wonderful place for a fun romantic getaway. Very clean and everything you could ever need. It’s all here, all you have to do is relax and enjoy. Amazing views and very close to old part of town, which is where you want to be. If you appreciate steampunk era, then Jan’s place is a must to stay. We hope to stay again soon.”

“We very much enjoyed our stay at Thyme Lodge. We felt welcomed and comfortable. The appetizer tray, fresh flowers, herbs and special bath soap were all very nice touches. The highlight of our stay was when Lyn took us to meet and feed her beautiful llamas and alpacas! Beautiful view from the deck, nice place in the country to get away from it all. Highly recommend Thyme Lodge.”
