“One of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We've had a wonderful time at Maungakawa Views. Shirley and Alan are the best hosts. We can't say enough about Shirley's incredible cooking and we love that some produce are freshly picked from the farm. Also we had so much fun and learned a lot about farm activities: Alan shearing a lamb for us, showing us around on the tractor, and we enjoyed interacting with all the animals (cows, sheep and chickens). This is definitely one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand!

“Great introduction to a human-size farm”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a great stay (3 nights). Very quiet, very nice hosts, interesting introduction to farm operations, really good food (our favorite: pear chocolate cake, scones & cookies, pumpkin soup), a nice hike just a few minutes away, a rocking chair in front of the fire, and even a cute cat. Highly recommend!
