Fodor's Review

For a taste of the real New Zealand, relax on the 5,000-acre sheep-and-cattle station of Leslie and Ray Thompson. Ray's family have farmed this land for over 100 years. Among the trees is a fully restored 90-year-old cottage with original rimu flooring, kauri doors, and open fireplace; or, you may prefer the modern, spacious, comfortably furnished four-bedroom farmhouse. From here views over the Mahia peninsula to the ocean are spectacular. Both houses have great self-catering facilities, ideal for longer stays (bring your own supplies).
