We have 2 accommodation options at our 10 acre certified organic property – The Bach sleeps 4 (6 max)  from $100/night and The Pod sleeps 2 (3 max) from $70/night.  Mount Taranaki is the backdrop the the property and the New Plymouth coast is to the front in the far distance . On clear days we also look straight across to Ruapehu, Ngharahoe and Tongariro.

The property is powered by renewable energy and we would therefore encourage you to live an eco lifestyle for your stay, and not bring additional electrical appliances.  Spend an evening relaxing in a firebath under the stars listening to frogs and moreporks. There is easy access to the mountain from the property – the Maude track is 7 km down the road,   and Egmont Village is 12 km away. New Plymouth is a 20 min drive.

We have extensive vegetable gardens as well as chooks, ducks and various animals, and eggs and seasonable vegetables are available to purchase, as well as productive plants, seeds and shelter trees.
