Farm is in an idyllic rural setting. Well positioned for access to tourist attractions: beaches, city and mountain. From the moment you turn onto the driveway you can feel yourself de-stressing. A self-contained modern sanctuary with a luxury feel. We will provide breakfast ingredients for your
first morning on the farm either continental or fresh farm eggs when available. Milk is local from Dolly's on Manutahi Rd organic and unpasteurised. Please use herb garden outside Te Awa.
Only 2 years old so fresh and new with all the mod cons. A self contained sanctuary with a luxury feel that offers an indoor/outdoor flow from living area to an inviting alfresco entertainment area. The apartment is heated in the winter with underfloor solar heating completely adjustable to your individual preferences! We try to use cleaning products that are good for you and the environment. Please ask if there is anything missing from your cottage that you need to make you stay more comfortable eg. a bigger pot or even a crock- pot. We have spare juicers if you would like to use while here-sandwich press, pie maker, popcorn maker, pasta machine and a waffle making machine also! I am a bit embarrassed now Too many machines. Fun to use though and you are welcome to borrow!
Te Maunga Cottage has its own grounds and a lovely big deck where guests like to sit and enjoy the scenery with a cuppa or even breakfast. Ask if you would like to use the barbecue. Greg will set you up! The farm is great for walking especially down to the Waiongana River for a picnic or even a swim in the warmer months. Out the gate and we can direct you to some other walking or biking options. We even have a couple of bikes available. We have a very friendly dog Ricky who likes to retrieve sticks and balls, 3 cats(Buddy-champagne, Zeb-tortoiseshell and Pepper -black and white and the only girl) chickens, beef cattle, cows plus horses- two of which have given birth recently to Diago and Coral. The neighbours have miniature horses Very very cute!
