Comfort away from Home

Whether you are going away for a few days, are invited to one of the venues in the area or just looking for a lovely spot to stay, we can provide you comfort away from home.

We are a boutique Bed & Breakfast on a little hobby farm offering breathtaking rural views and stunning sunsets all year round, located in Waimauku – the gateway to Muriwai & the Kaipara Harbour – 30min northwest of Auckland.

Beautiful Landscape

Welcome to the Norwest – Home of Kumeu Wine Country, Muriwai Beach, Woodhill Forest and the Kaipara Harbour.

Whether you would like to explore nature, watch stunning sunsets, relax or be thrillseeking – the area offers something for everyone.

Our Animals

Guests at the farmstay can enjoy lots of cute and friendly farm animals around – Alpacas, cows, chickens, horses, ducks and the cats.

All of them have a story and many of them are rescues.

You are invited to join in at feeding times or to have a pat. You can also enjoy some of the free range eggs for breakfast on the weekend.

What's new?

Every now and then we write stories of some of the events that were happing on the farm or just post some lovely pictures. Please see our news&blog section for more stories.
