We live in the middle of nowhere If you like quiet you will love it here. Although we heard a car go past two days ago. We have 93 acres with Native forest, chickens / cattle / calves and the cutest little Kune Kune pigs you'll ever meet. We have the privilege of sharing our home with a succession of puppies mostly Labradors; all of whom are Blind Foundation guide dog in training. And we are all ruled over with the Iron Claw of our SPCA rescue cat Ebony
“Ross and Kim are wonderful hosts, and their place is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors. I stayed in winter and the weather was quite cold and stormy at times but there was still opportunity there get out on their farm for a walk, plus take in some of the local sites. And when staying in, they have a lovely fire and relaxing spa bath to take some chill time. A great place to slow down, and Kim and Ross are so welcoming.”
Our lovely 1920s Bach (NZ holiday home) is a one minute walk from the beach which is over 100kms long. Full of quirky character & few mod-cons this is a place to be away from the TV, rest up & enjoy stunning nature on the doorstep. We have kept as many original features as possible so you get to experience a traditional Kiwi holiday - with a few added comforts. We are dog friendly, please check the additional house rules if you'd like to bring yours. We do now have WIFI, no cleaning fee!
“Amazing place to stay . Warm and cozy with an stunning beach to visit just around the corner. The space itself is full of art, very interesting to look around. Beyond what I was expecting and loved every minute of my stay Also extra bonus of finding somewhere dog friendly for including my dog in a trip up north”

“I highly recommend Lin's place. It's very good value for money. The decor is modern and stylish. It felt like a home away from home. If you want quiet this is the pave for you. The location is a good distance from Dargaville Town centre. Check in was super easy and Lin responsed quickly to my messages. Overall, an excellent experience.”
