We are on the sunny side of the Tukituki river, overlooking the most picture perfect part of the valley with views downstream to Horse shoe bend and upstream to Mt Erin.
It's a peaceful and private location with mature trees and places to explore on the 24 ha (60 acres) property. We have fruit trees including figs, olives, apricots, plums, oranges, lemons, grapefruit, mandarins, passion fruit etc that guests are welcome to pick from when in season.
This is a family farm house ideally suited for outdoor living and entertainment in the summer under the ancient olive on the patio or the expansive deck alongside.
In winter, the house comes into its own with the half-metre thick lime washed walls providing unbelievable insulation. At this time of the year the inside of the house comes alive with atmosphere. There's no better place than in front of the huge open fire place to curl up with a book, break open a pack of cards or watch a movie on Netflix or Lightbox.
All the house is available for use.
This is a well-loved, lived in, rustic family home. It's designed for country 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.
It's a house to enjoy not be prissy about. There's no better place for a group of friends or families to get-away or for a special romantic hideaway for couples.
Our house overlooks a 500 metre stretch of the Tuki tuki river that we own. Guests are welcome to use this for picnicking, swimming, fishing, walking, camping or just to pitch up for an evening drink beneath the willows on the riverbank. It's not just a stunning place for adults, it's paradise for children.
