One of the most amazing places I have been in NZ. Super welcoming and friendly family and wwoofers who invite everyone to hang out with them and not just let you stay by yourself. Definitely feels like a home away from home! motorcross on great tracks through the bush's, horseriding, fishing, kayaking (free if u stay 2 nights) are just...

Mike, Ellen and the workers were all very welcoming and friendly to the whole year level. I went with my school for our year 8 camp and was not disappointed in the least! Everyone was so organised as well. I did kayaking (my favourite,) bush crash, horse riding and so much more. Everyone was comfortable and some even conquered several...

The owners Mike and Ellen are really lovely and want to make sure you're having a good time. I didn't do all of the activities but there's motorbiking and...

Heard about this place through the lonely planet and decided to stay! It's off the track but you get to experience a crazy household with a fun atmosphere. Also went kayaking, horse riding and went on a few walks/tramps. Relatively good price! I decided to camp which was 12 dollars and night. Definitely recommend this place - I will be...
