    Nestled amongst the foothills and farmlands of South Canterbury on New Zealand's South Island, with stunning views of the country's well known Southern Alps, Limestone Valley Estate offers a serenely beautiful escape. Limestone Valley Estate's lavender fields and olive grove add to the uniqueness of this little slice of Provence in the Southern Hemisphere.

Comfortable country accommodation with sumptuous food, all within a region offering so much to see and experience. Sit back and take in the views with a glass of local wine, olives and treats created using lavender oil and flowers, or go on an adventure to the high country to see soaring mountains piercing the sky, aqua blue lakes, ski runs that seemingly go for an eternity and beaches where you will often catch a glimpse of passing dolphins and whales. All this within 45 mins of Limestone Valley Estate!

Rob has this eco thing going on with the water, which obviously limits your water usage, but we found it to be in line with how nature’s resources should be used and we loved it. Can highly recommend!

  • The perfect stay at the most beautiful cottage. Gay & Frank are the most wonderful hosts - They were quick to respond to any messages and made us feel very comfortable. Simple touches such as the fresh flowers made our stay very special. They also provided breakfast which we appreciated dearly. Would definitely stay again if I ever travel through the South Island in the future.

  • I really love Gay and Frank’s house. Every details are so considerate. The house is located in a farm, and it’s very clean and comfortable. You can enjoy starry night and wake up in the morning with birds singing. A beautiful garden and many trees around the house and you can also see many cows in the day time. The mostly important, Frank and Gay are so friendly, they prepared very delicious breakfast with many options. And they also decorated the house with beautiful flowers and good smelling candles. It’s one hour drive-away from Tekapo lake. So recommend to those who always living in cities can spend at least one night here.

    Cherieytm2020-02-08T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you Gay and Frank for hosting us…It's been the nicest stay in NZ so far for us…Gay was so nice welcoming us with the breakfast prepared in the kitchen…finding us from the city of China,she was hospitably showing us to their farm…was so much fun…the cottage is set in the small hill surrounded by a garden with all kinds of beautiful flowers and the bird singing wakes you us in the morning…As for tourists,it's an hour away from The Lake Tekapo but also a great place to enjoy the starry night no less than the astro observatory by Tekapo…just sitting outside on the bench at the garden!Overall,it is an extraordinary experience staying at Gay and Frank’s…Thank you so much !Best, Karen and Philip

    Jonas2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A peaceful and quiet stay at this comfortable and nicely appointed house. A very sweet dog and friendly horse will greet you as you arrive. Beware, the sweet dog is a charming beggar!! She returned as we were eating dinner on the deck and I will admit, it was impossible to ignore those sweet puppy-dog eyes. (Apologies to Jo for spoiling Sweet Dog’s diet/appetite.) This place reminded me of the farm I grew up on near Newton, Kansas, USA. Loved hearing the cows lowing as they settled down for the night. Between the BBQ grill, hot plate, toaster oven, kettle, and toaster...you really have everything you need to create a meal. The fresh milk and cereal options were very much appreciated. Nice to have a washer and drying line too. Quiet and dark at night — great for sleeping! This stay was a much needed break during our two week road trip through the South Island.

    Dennis2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had a comfortable stay at Joanne’s place. The place was really clean and we got a good feel for a farm house. Was an excellent place to relax. Would highly recommend if you are looking to get a good farm house experience.

It has solar, lantern, fairy lights & firelight. It offers uninterrupted peace, privacy, romantically decorated open space living with a fireplace & dry wood. It has breath-taking mountain views and star-filled skies (on clear nights).

The cottage currently has a solar shower however full bathroom facilities and wifi are available to use at the main house (between 7.30am to 9 pm).

So many guests have enjoyed the unique experience of staying at Fiery Peak Cottage. Here's a sample of what is being said in our reviews: “Let’s just say I’ve stayed at a lot of Airbnb’s...and this was my favourite. If you book here you’ll find yourself amongst the trees in a cute cottage lit by fairy lights. The fire will keep you warm at night and you’ll have the most relaxing evening of your life! 110% recommend staying here, the hosts could not have been easier to work with! Nathaniel from Australia: Aug 2018 "This was probably our favourite night in New Zealand! Kay is great, so accomodating and even had home made breakfast ready for us. The property was extremely comfortable and warm and the stars at night were amazing and filled the sky. Thanks so much Kay!" John from Australia: July 2018 We stayed for a night during our break journey from Christchurch to Queenstown. When we were checking out, we regretted having not stayed a day or two more. Sayantan from England: Dec 2017 We had a WONDERFUL night in this brilliant cottage. We were up for hours playing board games and watching the stars. We couldn’t have asked for more from a night away. We were provided with a lovely breakfast and the cottage is on a fantastic property - we were both very impressed. Sheryl Sept 2018 Cook your own dinner: Simple stovetop cooking (plus all cooking utensils, cutlery crockery, pots/ pans), gas fridge, and a phone charger for guests use in the cottage. Dine outside in the in evening sun or visit one of the superb cafes & restaurants in nearby Geraldine. So many of our guests have enjoyed a break from their devices ( and slept so well!) and engaged with their partners, friends/ family in conversation, board games, puzzles or just taking the time to read a book. It's a great place for just sitting and gazing at the mountains with a drink, contemplating the meaning of life. However, you are welcome to access wifi at the main home to check your messages, arrange booking etc Squaint village of Geraldine - just 8mins drive away. The cottage sits on its own terrace, a short 200m stroll, over a footbridge from the guest car park. As part of the service we ferry our guests' gear (and you as well if you would like) up to the cottage - however because of the creek, the access is not suitable for 2WD rental vehicles. You are welcome to drive up if you have a 4WD vehicle. I am happy to take up whatever gear you would like for the evening and arrange a time with you that you would like me to come and collect your gear in the morning of your departure. Your car can be parked down our driveway, off road and secure. You can come and go with your vehicle, as you please without disturbing us via the path connecting the cottage and car park. If you are heading to visit the stars at Tekapo by night, it is best to come check in first. 10mins into the quaint town of Geraldine - if you want to check out the local gorgeous cafes, restaurants, and supermarket. You are welcome to have a wander around the forest. Just make sure to keep gates shut as sheep are grazing, or take a peaceful walk down the quiet country road.
    Take a leisurely walk down the quiet country roads. Drive 10mins into the quaint town of Geraldine for cafes, restaurants, and gift/ souvenir shops. Just 5 mins off the Highway 79 to Lake Tekapo ( 70mins) and Mt Cook. Two hours from Christchurch. 1 hour from Mt Hutt ski field and 1 hour from Mt Dobson ski field.
  • Good clear instructions for self check in. Kay’s place was a different experience with a beautiful outlook with the sun on the mountains in the morning. Unfortunately there were clouds at night and no stars to see.

  • Lovely spot to relax and enjoy the area!

    Joe2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was relaxing. The bed was one of the most comfortable on our month-long trip to New Zealand. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sheep. The stars were also spectacular

    Mary2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a gem of a spot. Me and my dad stayed here during the rainiest day of summer I reckon! We arrived being wet and cold and it was so great stepping inside a warm en cosy home. The fire was lit, music as playing and there was a basket filled with food for breakie, it was great. We ended up playing heaps of games and enjoying time off-grid. Kay is a great host and was easy to contact. During the night the night sky cleared up and we had an epic view. Would def recommend staying here, it's an awesome experience.

    Marieke2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • The starry skies from the cabin is unbelievable! We loved getting “simple” and spending time off of our devices for a bit. Kay was super helpful and accommodating. The included breakfast was a treat! We could tell that she really cares about her guests.

    Quayle2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

The room was very clean with thoughtful touches such as milk in the fridge, Netflix etc. The alpacas and dogs were a great attraction and were lovely to have around. We did find it a little hard to find coming from Tekapo (Google maps tried to take us over 2 dirt road 4WD only roads) however we found it in the end! Overall a great stay and would recommend :)

Everything you need from a hair dryer to an ironing board. This place is not luxury resort but it is clean, spacious and comfortable.
    Warm quiet private and professionally cleaned. The bed is relatively new and fairly firm so no roll-together!

The cupboard contains common hot drink options, muesli and porridge for your breakfast plus there will be milk and eggs in the fridge when you arrive and a recipe for making your own pancakes.

When you book you can access the lock box details from airbnb to get the key and check yourself in anytime after 3pm.
    Watlington is an ordinary residential neighbourhood of Timaru. We live on a quiet street with barely any traffic. We live on a back section so the only noise you might hear over night time is if a neighbour hosts a backyard party which is seldom.

The place is finished to a very high standard and you will find all you need to spend a relaxing time. We loved strolling around the garden, looking at the cows and the vegetable garden and of course playing with Megs, the lovely Labrador, who is a real star. We would highly recommend Gerry's place.

She and her husband were delightful to talk to and helpful. And, getting to see the amazing garden was a plus. Highly recommended. Would stay again if we're in the area.

  • Margaret’s “The Studio” was a great find for us. From a warm welcome to a fond farewell every aspect of our stay was outstanding. The Studio is spacious, impeccably clean and meticulously provided for. We appreciated the excellent quality furniture and the very comfortable bed with beautiful, crisp sheets, the well equipped kitchen and bathroom, great breakfast, great lighting, a library of books, most beautiful garden, etc. We wish we could have stayed longer. And the town of Geraldine is cute too!

    Richard2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

  • Located in a wide hill; lovely family; various animals and fruit trees; ten minutes drive from Timaru's supermarket. The bedroom bed is a little bit 网 ️, the others are good; I also tasted the plum of her house; the owner runs the homeware; it would be better to go down the road from Christchurch. If you want to experience quiet suburban life, it is a good experience. recommend

    Lian2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Aaron and Lynne's house is definitely the best decision we made in our trip in NZ. This beautiful family is so nice and friendly.

    Cosy tiny space featuring all natural local timbers. Great views within a garden setting. Very quiet with no through traffic, some guests have commented that it is so quiet after the city that sleeping is a different experience. Great location for viewing the Milky Way on a clear dark night. Sorry but we can’t guarantee the weather.
    Quiet private space and only 10 km to lake Opua and only 3.5 km to Fairlie where you will find plenty to look at. Try one of our famous pies at the Falirlie Bakehouse. On a clear and dark night view the Milky Way just sitting on the porch. Only 30 minutes to Lake Tekapo for hot pools and star gazing on a clear and dark night
    We are close to lakes, skiing in winter. Walking and bike tracks, and Fairlie bake house for one of their famous pies. Developing boutique shopping areas .
  • Don't be quick to dismiss this bunk bed set-up, it is one of the most amazing 'tiny space' concept accommodation that I've stayed at, and the attached bathroom is simply awesome. Don't just stay a night like us, stay for a couple to fully appreciate the thought and care Jim and Fran have put into Arvaz to make it a comfortable place for weary travellers to rest their heads, then wake up to amazing views. And if you're lucky, you might even get to see the Milky Way at night without having to make the trip over to Tekapo.

    Philip2020-03-18T00:00:00Z

    William2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Alexander2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • So cute and pretty house. The small interiors are wonderful. Nice and delicate interior. Small but has everything you need. Small terrace where you can enjoy coffee. All the things inside the room are considerate to make the guest stay comfortable. Overall so lovely host and home that fits. I was looking forward to seeing the beautiful stars, but it's a pity that I didn't see it because the weather was cloudy for two days. Where you want to come again!

    혜린2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Mia2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Margaux2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We really couldn’t fault this place, it was just perfect in every single way. The whole cabin layout and design is amazing, there were stunning views of the mountains in the day time, and the starry sky at night was magical. We thoroughly enjoyed eating our meals from the BBQ (including the most delicious eggs supplied for breakfast) and watching the sunset in the evening, followed by stargazing from the porch. The hosts were really friendly and ensured we had everything we needed for a great stay. We were really sad to leave and can’t wait to return again in the future! Thanks for everything Jim and Fran!

  • We loved our stay at Rosemary Cottage. The cottage is set in an amazing garden setting and is decorated beautifully. We also enjoyed the breakfast, Janey’s home baking and the native birds. We went into town for dinner, which only takes a few minutes. Janey and David are excellent hosts. A great Airbnb. Thanks Liz and Warwick

  • Don’t miss staying at Tony and Julie’s farm cottage. Julie has thought of everything to make your stay wonderful. Chocolates and cookies on arrival. Homemade pancake batter, fresh eggs, etc. The cottage has outstanding farm views and it is so quiet. We loved the peaceful escape. Julie gave us a very informative farm tour where we got to meet many of the farm animals. We would have loved to have stayed longer. I highly recommend this cottage!

  • We had a lovely stay on the farm. Julie left us carrots from her garden so we were able to feed their pig ourselves. We loved feeding the alpacas and watching their dog herd up the sheep. The stay was excellent and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.

  • Fantastic stop on our way to Mt Cook. If you’re considering a farmstay, this is the one!

  • Our family had the most wonderful time! They will always remember feeding the animals and waking up to watch the sunrise from the amazing hot tub. The cottage is very well kept and clean and tidy. Julie and her family are so kind and wonderful hosts. Can’t recommend enough.

  • This was one of the highlights of our trip. After days of hiking, it was a respite to arrive at the farm and have a cottage to ourselves with a hot tub and a lovely view. The hosts had plenty for us to have a nice breakfast including eggs from their hens and fresh pancake batter. The farm tour was a treat - fun and informative. Julie and her husband treated us as if we were their only guests ever. They took their time showing us around and answering questions. Feeding the animals was also a fun. It was just a wonderful experience and I cant recommend this place highly enough! Hope to go back one day!!

  • We absolutely loved Julies place, and Julie, it had everything we needed, plus a super friendly host, peace, animals and a generous breakfast! One of the best of all our 8 stays in NZ.
