We were traveling with an extended family of 11 and absolutely loved the farm stay! Amazingly beautiful, rustic location easily accommodated our group (using the cottage, shed and sleep out). Sam and Christine were very welcoming and friendly and we enjoyed chatting with them. The most amazing part was the short walk to a pristine beach. We saw penguins and...

It was great to have you all stay at Allans Beach Farmstay. It is not often that we get a group of your size to stay. So glad that you all enjoyed your visit to the Otago Peninsula and our place. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Emailed the Farmstay to make a reservation and also supplied to them my phone number in the email. All I received in return was a very cold email stating quote, "can't help you" no more no less in this email... No apologies of possibly being booked or a thank you for visiting their website, NOTHING... Not a very good business...

Must have caught me as I was about to go out the door. Sorry. We obviously were not able to help you at the time of your inquiry. Glad you found some where else.

I loved this place so much that I went back on my 3rd visit to NZ. Sam and Christine were wonderful. I loved the cabin - set up with everything you need - but the short walk to the secluded beach is spectacular... heaven on earth for me.

The cottage was rally beautiful as you can see in the photo in tripadvisor. Is for 4 people, great, lots of space, great shower, good cooking area. The place is not brand new or luxurius but is well maintained, clean, cute and romantic. From the kitchen and dinning area you have views throught big windows to the landscape. Enough heathers...

We were recommended to stay at this Farm Stay by a contributor on Trip-adviser,and we were not disappointed.We loved the remoteness of the farm and the whole area has stunning scenery. We were lucky enough to go for an evening drive with Sam and the views over the beaches were stunning and so was the terrain which we drove over.We...

Our two nights with Sam and Christine Neill at Allans Beach Farmstay was one of the highlights of our recent NZ holiday. We stayed in the cottage which was ideal for our family of 4 and the self-catering nature of the property made a refreshing change from having to find a restaurant every night. You really feel you are an...

Unbelievable location - it really is 5 minutes to the unspoiled beach where we saw sealions and a penguin. And we briefly heard the sound of the waves before suffering 14 hours of heavy rain. The accommodation is remote (4 kms along a gravel road, when the tarmac runs out) but we saw that as a real advantage as the...

We stayed in the Shed, which was equipped with everything we need - right down to the much-needed salt for our cookong! A cosy and homely place, with a warm host we found in Christine. The tubby cat Bronco was quite cute, though he shocked us by meowing outside our front door during one rainy night :) The bed warmers...

Firstly I must say the location is as good as it gets, you have the farm all around you and the beach within 5 minutes walk so this is 10 out of 10 but compared with the rest of New Zealand I found the welcome and accommodation very different here and very disappointing. Both my wife and I had the...

Yes, our accommodation is not 5 star but we do not market it as such. The pictures on our web site show our accommodation as it is. I...
