    Get a and Tim make a great team. The food was Delicious, the bed comfy and the company more than enjoyable and knowledgeable of the area. Loved how they introduce everyone in the room and make us all feel like old friends. Will return when coming back to New Zealand!

    For us oldies (70+) it was good and certainly better than expected. The location is fantastic and lovely at the same time. The wagon is very well equipped with everything there to make the stay comfortable. The toilets are camping type, but the bath is amazing. Geva and Tim are very nice, made us very welcome and looked after us during our 4 day stay. This spot is very much recommended for a tranquil stay and close tomthe river with a fishing rod provided and gas bbq to grill the fish you caught. We are thankful to Geva and Tim!

    Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in New Zealand. If you want to go sightseeing, then it's best to have a car. But you'll have a wonderful time just to be in the house looking out the window or talking to Tim and Geva. Animals are all adorable, too.

    Mon séjour chez Geva et Tim restera une extraordinaire expérience. Un sens réel d'accueillir comme un membre de la famille, l'environnement réellement éloigné de la civilisation, une merveilleuse maison chalet, un agneau qui se prend pour un chien, des chiens aux coeurs énormes. Merci à vous !

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
