Make Yourself at Home
Our home was designed by its original owners and perfected by a local architect. They wanted a welcoming home with extensive use of local timber and lots of space!
You are most welcome to share our lounge. Enjoy the expansive river and rural views from the huge bay window. If you enjoy strumming a guitar or you like to tinkle the ivories, please feel free to sit and play.
On winter nights we like to toast yummy marshmallows around the open fire. But you'll have to share the fire with our gentle cat, Panpoot. Unfortunately for him, he's never allowed in the guest rooms.
The Riverview & Waitangi rooms have private decks which can be opened up for couples travelling together. The Puketona and Paihia rooms have a shared deck which is accessed through the lounge. All decks have lovely views and are covered to provide shade and shelter.
We collect rain water from our roof and store it in our large water tank (80,000L) so we have plenty for guests even in dry spells. The water is Filtered and then UV Sterilised before being pumped throughout the house.
