Welcome

We are a boutique Bed & Breakfast on a little hobby farm offering breathtaking rural views and stunning sunsets all year round.

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.

Stay with us and enjoy the peace and quiet, take in the semi-rural view and be stunned by the amazing sunsets not too far away from Auckland CBD.

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.

Ziggy having a bad day

Sunday night Ziggy did not come home. Normally all cats come home for their dinner and then have to stay in over night. This prevents them from hunting all the native New Zealand birds and also keep themselves safe. The next Monday morning there was...

Beautiful weather and no rain in sight

The last bit of rain has been some time ago and the weather forecast shows no rain for the next two weeks. Knowing the weather in and around Auckland, this may change but does not really look like it. The water tank level is getting...

Cuteness overkill

Silver with her bunch of cuties. She had 4 kittens, so extremely cute. But we will be selling the 4 as Silver, Naughty Ziggy and Moonshine are occupying us enough.

We had a few hours of exploring our little bush strip in the gully.

Kitten pile

Silver gave birth to 3 beautiful kittens very early on Saturday morning, so yesterday was a very slow day here on our little farm after a very short night with Ms Silver’s new arrivals. When my daughter and I got home yesterday afternoon from our...

Spring day out

Spring is in the air. The weather is getting warmer, so I did my walk down into the valley to check the water supply to the troughs, checked all fences and gates.
