House Rules

-Our wifi is limited to two hours a day - we will figure out together the most suitable time for you. It's rural wifi too so every so often, when you need to do something really important really urgently, it slows down. Gah!
- We try to be as earth-loving as possible so ask that guests use the eco dishwash and eco shampoo that we provide.
- We have goats, cows, ducks and chickens and are totally happy for guests to help us feed them, but do ask that guests don't scare or chases our animals.
- We have 10 hectares of land, farm and bush, we provide a map of available places but do ask that guests respect the zones marked as private.
- We are a family farm so ask that guests keep the noise down after 10pm and save the parties for another spot.
- If smokers could just keep it on the deck that'd be awesome.
- We do a pro clean inbetween guests but do ask that people tidy up after themselves, dishes etc.
- Pets are welcome, we have a little bearded lab that would love to meet them, owner must make sure they don't hang out on the furniture or and must keep them on a leash so they don't chase our free range chickens and ducks.

Beautiful weekend at Lucy and Tim's place. It was so relaxing and picturesque. They were kind enough to greet us at the gate upon arrival as we arrived really late. We loved the warm and toasty yurt and it was great waking up the next day to the beautiful views. The shower pressure was surprisingly strong and refreshing. We had a lovely walk to the Karangahake Gorge and absolutely loved the mining tunnel and glow worms. We would have loved to have gone swimming at the amazing swimming hole if it weren't so cold. The weekend ended with toasting marshmallows on the fire place and watching the beautiful sky full of stars on the deck. Overall a great weekend! Lucy and Tim are so lovely. Lucy always provided thorough instructions and we appreciated them letting us bring our dogs with us (dogs that are now exhausted and sleeping like logs!). We love their dedication to the eco life and certainly came out feeling inspired. Highly recommend this experience to all. Thank you Lucy and Tim!

We had a great stay in the Yurt, it was clean, comfortable and with picturesque surroundings. Lucy and family were very welcoming and helpful! Their land is lovely, with the river running along the bottom of the fields. Would definitely book again and recommended to anyone looking for an idyllic get away!

We had such a great time for our stay in the Yurt. It was warm and cosy with the fire going and plenty of space for a family of 4 with comfy beds and plenty of warm bedding. Lucy and Tim's property is just beautiful with spectacular views of Mt Karangehake and the DOC walking trails are accessible right from the property so you can do some amazing hikes without having to drive anywhere. Lucy and Tim are wonderful hosts who love sharing their slice of paradise and Lucy even provided from fresh milk and a few basic necessities which was very much appreciated. There is also a fantastic bistro 5 mins up the road with wood fired pizzas and a range of tasty dishes. The yurt has very basic kitchen facilities with a gas burner and esky which Lucy will give you ice bricks for so for breakfasts and simple camping style meals it's all you need. We feel privileged to have shared their space for a short time.

This place is an antidote to a mad world. Don't just go for a holiday - go and live there and recall what life used to be about before you became a slave to technology! Lucy and Tim are wonderful people and great hosts too. Colin and Margaret Barlow
