About this listing
Our place is great for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and groups up to 4. You’ll love the friendly people, countryside views, clean and tidy guesthouse and of course the central location with many local attractions like the Hobbiton film set which is a must do for any fan of the movies.
This guesthouse is located in the countryside on a working farm. It has great views all the way to a nearby mountain range directly from your bed across the rolling hills of the South Waikato countryside. The guesthouse itself is detached and private so you can come and go as you please with its own bathroom. The room is clean, quiet, light and well aired. We are happy to help so feel free to ask if you need anything.
This is a detached guesthouse with its own shower and toilet and green areas around it. The main house has a separate clothes washing machine which you are welcome to use. The guesthouse is located on our working farm and you are welcome to explore the nearby farm areas and the native bush which is just a short walk away.
Interaction with guests
We live on the farm and have lived in the area for many years so are able to help with any questions you have about things to see and do in the area or even where next to go on your adventure.
This is a central North Island location only 10 min walk to Tirau (many cafes and stores to explore). Tirau is a hub for many central North Island attractions including the Hobbiton film set (15 mins drive), Mount Maunganui (popular beach and nightlife), Rotaruru (boiling mud and hot pools), Taupo (beautiful lake and town), various nearby waterfalls, Waikato river trails, golf courses, the Blue Springs (popular walk with crystal clear spring where most of NZ bottled water comes from) and many more attractions.
Tirau has public transport links with the main cities in NZ via bus as it is situated on New Zealand's main state highway but in general getting around is best achieved with a car. For those with a car we have plenty of car parking and for those without we are 10 mins walk from Tirau or we can arrange to pick you up in some circumstances.
Other things to note
This is a working farm so its not uncommon to see the cows in nearby paddocks and tractors and machines working. Occasionally the livestock may be in paddocks nearby and then gates should be left as you find them.
A strict "No Smoking" rule applies to all inside spaces including bathrooms. You are welcome to smoke outside in the open air near the guesthouse though.
