Hilltop mansion with panoramic views
Rent individual bedrooms.
Children are welcome. No pets, sorry.
There are 5 bedrooms, two with ensuite and the rest have shared bathrooms.
Built in 2000, the home sits atop a hill with 5 acres of grounds, mostly in paddocks for the animals. The house is spacious with large rooms, wide corridors and high ceilings and doors.
There is a colourful media room and a vast collection of DVD’s. There are TVs and DVD players in each bedroom and Netflix in the Rua suite.
You can enjoy 360 degree views across rolling green hills, especially Mt Pirongia to the front.
Take a wander over the 5 acres, where you will meet Chocolate and Licorice, the gentle alpacas, Bella and Joelle the Timor ponies and Simon and Danny Boy the Shetlands. We will prepare some sliced carrots or apples and they will all love you – albeit cupboard love!
You will also feel like the pied piper, once the free range hens and bantams spot you. Too numerous to name here, they will follow you in the hopes of you giving them something to eat other than worms and bugs. You can collect the eggs, if they are co-operating during your visit, and enjoy an organic healthy breakfast, which we rather pride ourselves in.
This heavenly country environment is just 10 minutes drive from the CBD.
Wedding parties love to stay the night before. Brides and their families or brides and their bridesmaids appreciate the big rooms, the ample wardrobes and the many large mirrors to get dressed by. Often, they like to use the property for wedding photos. The staircases and balconies and the outdoor views are superb backdrops.
