Breakfast is something to look forward to when staying at The Twisted Ngaio, a delicious selection of in-season berries with yogurt and fruit on cereal. An optional extra of either full cooked bacon and eggs breakfast or if you prefer berry pancakes.
Evening meals slow cooked on the charcoal BBQ can be served by prior arrangement. The views are a panoramic 180° of the picturesque valley, drenched in all day sunshine!
Your hosts Shaun and Vanessa, with their three children live in an eco-style home, that generates all its own electricity and hot water from the sun, centrally heated in the winter by the Rayburn wood cooker, with earth block internal wall construction in the main living areas, this house is warm all year round. With cows, donkeys, chickens and ducks, you can enjoy the rural farm experience while staying at this luxury spot.
You are booking one queen size ensuite room, which can sleep two adults, including your delicious breakfast served in your own dinning/tv lounge. We can easily cater for a family of 4 or two couples by booking the second bedroom. Perfect place to enjoy your private getaway.
Late check outs are a must, as you will sleep so well in this peaceful location.

Where you’ll be

Little River, Canterbury, New Zealand

In Little River there is a great cafe, with fine coffee and food. An art gallery and craft station to visit and do a little shopping. Wonderful walks in the area, or just sit back and enjoy a bottle of wine on the patio.
The Hill Top is a must to visit for its fine food and stunning 360 views over the peninsula, then drop down into Barry’s Bay to watch cheese making daily and sample the cheese, before heading to French Farm to sample the wine and fine dining.

Only 20 minutes over to stunning Tumbledown bay for a swim on this lovely sandy beach. 30 minutes to Akaroa, and only 40 minutes from Christchurch.
