We have a unique family home, New Zealand's first straw bale house, overlooking the beautiful Tukituki river, famous for its trout fishing and minutes from Havelock North.
The views of the river valley and surrounding hills including Te Mata Peak are breathtaking.
Rates vary by season. Winter couples rates negotiable.
For most of the year, in Spring, Summer and Autumn, our home is ideally suited to outdoor living on the expansive covered verandah or dining on the patio beneath the ancient olive tree.
In winter the living areas of the house come alive with atmosphere and the rustic character accentuated by thick, rough-plastered lime-washed walls and a huge open fire. There's no better place to curl up with a glass of wine and a book or to open a pack of cards for a game or three.
A whole day can be spent watching the ever-changing light on the river valley's rolling hills that rise to dramatic limestone escarpments.
Private and secluded, this is a wonderful house for entertaining or a romantic getaway.
All of the house except one wardrobe is available. There are four double bedrooms available for use, with one King, one Queen, one double and one single bed.
This is a well-loved, lived in, rustic family home. Its designed for country life and living so while we expect guests to treat it with respect, we don't expect guests to tip-toe around frightened they might leave scuff mark on the timber floors or lime washed walls.
Our home was designed to be enjoyed. It was not designed to be prissy about.
