Kairuru Farmstay Cottages

1014 State Hwy. 60, Motueka, Tasman, 7198, New Zealand

Halfway up the Takaka Hill from Motueka, with distant views to the Abel Tasman coast, these homey cottages with timber interiors and wooden verandas have all you need for a comfy stay in the country. Decor has a rustic appeal while the modern kitchens with dishwashers take the hard work out of your day. There's room here for the kids to run wild, with sheep, goats, and cattle to pet. Your stay can be either fully self-catered, or with breakfast or dinner provided (prearranged). It's within easy reach of Golden Bay, Motueka, and the Abel Tasman area, and there could be opportunity to go out on the farm with Dave, depending on what's happening at the time— ask when you arrive.


  • fantastic home base for area exploration
  • a real Kiwi sheep and cattle farm


  • a steep 15-minute drive up the Takaka Hill from Riwaka
  • long, narrow driveway onto the farm, though suitable for rental cars
