What an amazing place! We spent the last night of our holiday here and it was the perfect way to end our NZ adventure! Being completely off grid, it was a great place to wind down and enjoy some tranquillity. The outside bath is a must! The location is also great for exploring Ak…

Oakston hut is a sweet place to stay. There was a very plentiful supply of dry wood and we lit the stove and heated water for the 'bath'. The décor is very shabby chic, if that is not your style you may not love this.

Hi Cath, your points have been noted, the gas unit was a temporary one as our main one was being serviced. It has been replaced now so shower pressure is back to normal, sorry the temporary one was not very strong. All bedding is washed and clean with new sheets fitted with each guest. Yes the chairs are older, I will look into the cleanliness of them, but hadn't noticed this before.

Hi Sophia, thanks for you wonderful review, we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your time. Thanks for the heads up about the missing cleaning products and the smell of dogs, we did have guests with dogs recently and we are swapping the rug out.

Yasmeen and I love living on our small farm in Little River , spending our time running this and our rather busy Well Being business and Cafe in Christchurch. It is always a pleasure to give people a moment of the true pleasure of country life......without the hard work.
