Travelled to Waimauku from Auckland (approx. 40 mins away) to escape the City for a couple of days & enjoyed every minute of our Stay. Special Thanks to our wonderful hosts. My Daughter loved spending time with the farmstay family & her friend, with many animals to visit & feed while enjoying the fresh air, knowing there is a warm cosy room to return to. Even a Rainbow over the picturesque valley below. Close to town so easy to go get a snack. Lots to do. Will definitely visit again
