Welcome to our Eco home nestled in native bush and designed for easy living in every season. Enjoy our home in our absence, or at other times by arrangement - minimum stay 7 nights.
This home has heaps of features - straw bale and rock walls, extensive use of recycled and native timber, passive heating, solar hot water heating and electricity, a wood fire, extensive decks, grass roofed walkway, landscaped gardens and heaps of personality!!

The space
Extensive living area's flow from inside to out making this a perfect place to bring the family to enjoy peaceful rural surroundings and take a break from your busy life.
The downstairs is completely accessible. The library/bedroom 3 can be either single or pulls out to a double bed as needed. Take a break from technology - instead try books, cards, games, the great outdoors and a Wairarapa 'dark sky' (perfect for star gazing) which you can enjoy from the comfort of a solar heated outdoor bath. Alternately you can toast your marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit and make memories you and your family will remember forever. You are welcome to select seasonal vegetables from our extensive gardens and feed the resident (but sometimes elusive) eel, 'Mr Slithery'!
Make our place your 'base camp' to explore the regions restaurants, wineries, beaches, cycling, walking/tramping at Mt Holdsworth, shopping, parks or simply kick back and relax.

A farmer (certified organic) for 35 years in the South Wairarapa. After a 'Gap' year when I went travelling with my husband Ian, WWOOFing, house/farm sitting and traveling overseas (UK and Europe - using airbnb extensively) we decided that a permanent change was needed. Having known the previous owners, shared their values and watched them develop this property we were excited to purchase it in December 2016. We have hosted WWOOFers since we started farming and I enjoy having travelers share their insights with me,. I am passionate about my family, the environment and have a love of people. A livestock farm owner, independent contractor and now owner of this unique property and home, Heather enjoys sharing her slice of heaven with others and exploring new places to understand how others live.
