Okains Bay, Canterbury, New Zealand

A highlight of your stay in Okains Bay would be a visit to the Okains Bay Museum (see Trip Adviser)where there is a spectacular collection of Maori and colonial artifacts - If you visit at Waitangi weekend (6th February) you can see a waka (Maori canoe) being rowed up the estuary and sample a real Maori hangi ( cooking in the ground with hot stones). Okains Bay beach (6.7 kms) is a popular destination for campers and day trippers offering safe swimming and picnicking and a wonderful playground. We have an abundance of local native bird life here and a short walk will take you to the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust block of native bush on our farm. Out the back of your unit is a deck which gives total privacy and overlooks a small waterfall.

We have moved here from a larger farm and now farm 200 head of cattle on 365 acres. Frances is a former nurse and Paul continues to farm this smaller block. This farm, Lyndhurst would have been one of New Zealand's early dairy farms. We are both very involved in community activities and love Banks Peninsula. We have both traveled extensively when we were young and now enjoy hosting other travelers and showcasing our area.
