  • Flying Plate Saloon was a wonderful surprise, even though it is absolutely as advertised. Kerry is a lovely host and greeted me on arrival. Everything is spic and span around and in the spacious studio with great decor and a lot of really nice unexpected finishing touches. It is very peaceful and private with a lovely outlook. I would highly recommend staying here.

  • Nice place to stay for more than just one night. Very clean, much space and kind hosts!

    Nadja2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We found an immaculately presented unit on our arrival. Everything was spotlessly clean and really good quality. Christine and Kerry had thought of everything you could possibly need for a great stay. We had two nights wonderful relaxing sleep in a very comfy bed and in very peaceful surroundings. You can’t get any better accommodation than this on such a low budget. Worth far more than charged. There are lots of interesting places to see in and around Waimate. We especially enjoyed the Wallaby Park in Waimate and the little blue penguin colony at Oamaru. Also we can highly recommend Kerry and Christine as super hosts as their friendliness and hospitality was above and beyond what we had hoped for. Thank you for the lovely extra touches and the sausage sizzle on our first night.

    Christine2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, perfect hosts going above and beyond. Attention to detail and all the extras are a added bonus. If your needing a place near here this is the one.

    Kate2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Immaculate and well thoughtout little unit .wonderful hospitality with a welcome wine/beer in the fridge and breakfast provided. Kerry made sure we had everything we needed and had some great yarns.The Waimate restaurant gave us the best vegan burgers we've had - good food and service 👌 highly recommend both !

    Liz2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent place to stay. Well located and very peaceful

    Linda2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The Flying Plate Saloon. The Flying Plate Saloon, Kerry and Christine made us feel welcome it seemed as if we had known them for years, they are so proud of the TFPS and it showed, it was fabulously clean and very homely with everything you would need for your stay. We spent a month here and travelled around and exploring the area and they gave us so much relevant information with regards of where to visit (even Danseys Pass) and what to see, you could not meet a more accommodating couple, nothing was too much trouble, we even joined them for a sausage sizzle, we would definitely come and stay again. Thank you Kerry and Christine for the treats, information and hospitality Kevin & Louise Oxford England.

    Kevin2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kerry’s place is an independent and peaceful place to stay. It is perfectly decorated and has everything that a traveller would need. All the details of the place are well thought. The bed is super comfy and the place is cosy and makes you feel like at home. Kerry’s hospitality is also outstanding, providing quick responses and little gifts for our stay. We really enjoyed our time there. 100% recommended!

    The Chelmer Street Bungalow is conveniently located in the heart of Oamaru opposite the Botanic Gardens. We aren't the flashest place you can stay, but we think it's good value, which is what we appreciate when we travel ourselves. We are part of an eco-homestead growing most of our food in the backyard and living collectively. Guest accommodation is a spacious, private room with a queen-sized bed. Shared kitchen, lounge, toilet & shower. Wifi & bikes available.
    The room is complete with a queen-sized bed, bedside lamp & table, and basic storage. It is suitable for 1 or 2 people. Kids are welcome. There is a spacious, shared lounge with a log burner and a heat pump for cold winter nights. You are welcome to cook in the shared kitchen. We are a friendly couple that own houses side-by-side: Mark is a gardening chef and Sophia works at the community gardens nearby. We live in the cottage next door, so you will mostly have the house to yourselves. Alex is our full-time flatmate living in the bungalow; he works as an electrician and is home in the evenings. The bungalow is across the street from Oamaru Botanic Gardens and Community Gardens. It is a lovely 10 minute stroll or 5 minute bike ride through the public gardens into the heart of the historic precinct and town centre. Oamaru was voted Sharpest Town in NZ in 2015 and Lonely Planet has named it "the coolest town in New Zealand". Come and find out why for yourself!
    We love being right next to the Botanic and Community Gardens.
  • Awesome! I recommend it :)

    Melody2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and Clean house. Sophia is friendly and nice. Dogs and cat are cute. Highly recommend.

    Ka Ming2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Warm, cozy home on a property with a communal feel. Interesting mobile living structures on the property. Very comfortable bed and quiet. It’s a very short walk to the Oamaru Public Gardens, which are not to be missed!

    Christopher2018-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • The room is located in an extra house next to the house. There were also other guests accommodated, but were rarely home, so I often had the whole house alone. The contact with Sophia and Mark was very uncomplicated and extremely nice. The garden is beautifully laid out and you can tell, as well as the house, that much is done by hand and with creativity.

    Heike2018-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, tidy room. It made us feel like home.

    Jay2018-01-04T00:00:00Z

    A lovely lifestyle block where you can meet and interact with the animals.The room is compact but you can use the furniture & bbq on the verandah and the spa pool. We are located 1.8 km from State Highway 1, 8km from Waimate township. There is a great new restaurant in town called the Waimate. On SH1 towards Timaru there is the best cafe I know called NOSH. Towards Oamaru Is Riverstone Castle, restaurant, garden & gift shops, a must see! Many great walks in the area too!
    We are located in the Willowbridge Settlement. There are 14 5 acre lifestyle blocks. Along with the animals we are creating beautiful gardens. Our veggie garden is a work in progress with raised garden beds & a pergola surrounded in scented flowers as a centre piece. There is a table & chairs where you can relax with a coffee, beer, wine etc. When I’m season you can pick gooseberries, currants & fruit from the orchard.
    We love our little lifestyle block. We have lovely neighbours whom we share and swap produce with. It’s great having Chicken Wire Creations next door. For $10 you can get a tour with Michelle, on Fri, Sat, Sun.
  • Jenny and Eugene (and Elvis, the dog) were fantastic hosts! They welcomed us with great kiwi hospitality. The room was nice and warm and they included lovely little touches that really made it feel homey. The jacuzzi was the best thing after a long day of driving. Lastly, they showed us around their little farm in the morning. (The trained pigs were a really special treat.) Overall, this was one of my favorite AirBnBs I’ve booked. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Michelle2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lot of fun here. Once we arrived, we were greeted by all the farm animals, and took a tour around the place. Our room was off the main part of the house complete with an outdoor hot tub we could’ve used if we had wanted. We had a great time enjoying a beer with Jennifer and Eugene, and meeting their neighbors. We felt very at home and comfortable here. The town of Waimate (close by) has shops and a restaurant in an old hotel, which was a great place to eat.

    Amber2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing time at Jenny's place. I only wish we had booked a few more nights here! Jenny and Eugene were excellent hosts, making us feel incredibly welcome. The property is beautiful and the animals were a real highlight. One of the best airbnb's we have stayed in

    Gerard2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Compact and very clean self contained room. Jenny and Eugene were fabulous hosts, well traveled themselves and made us feel very much at home

    Penny 2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny and Eugene were perfect hosts. Really quick communication and smooth check in. The room is small but well thought out and private. The shower is amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed taking a spa in the peaceful countryside. Jenny is so accomodating and gave us a full tour of all the animals and garden (with lots of sampling of fresh fruit and vegetables) It is a bit out of the way, but that’s ideal for a relaxing get away in the middle of our trip. You get so much for your money at this place, highly recommended.

    Kate2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very good farm house. The house is very clean and tidy. It has its own separate bathroom. The landlord is very friendly and took us through their piglet and a very cute and cute dog.

    If you are looking for a comfortable, light, inviting suite opening out into a peaceful and mature garden, with delicious breakfast included, you've found your spot! Both the bedroom and dining area have doors opening out into the garden, which is in a quiet suburban location. The brand new bathroom and kitchenette are tiled with underfloor heating for those chillier mornings. You have a private driveway entrance leading to the back of the house and on site spacious safe garaging.
    Swallows Nest is a recently renovated private, luxurious extension to our home, offering a peaceful, comfortable space for you to relax in, opening out into the garden.

For accessibility to town, we are fortunate to be only a 3-minute drive to our famous historic Victorian Precinct, Steampunk and town centre and 5 minutes to the famous Little Blue Penguin Colony. We are easy to locate in a pleasant safe part of town. It's a minutes' drive to an after hours Superette and also a Takeaway for those late night/early morning needs and just over one minutes' drive to the nearest New World supermarket.
    We are in a sought after secluded residential part of town. It is quiet (apart from birdsong!) yet handy to the center of town and easily accessible for coming and going, being close to the main highway. A pleasant 15 minute walk will see you in the botanical gardens downtown. 5 minutes further will have you ambling down the main street and into the historic Victorian Precinct. You will pass the Opera House and Forester Gallery on your way. Both are worth a visit. In the precinct you will find Whitestone City ( interactive Victorian educational experience) and whiskey tasting as well as a plethora of boutique shops selling art, gifts, jewelry, pottery, oamaru stone carvings, paintings, leather belts, collectable books and vintage clothing/ furniture/ memorabilia - all are popular. Sundays offer a farmers market down by the harbour from 9 am till 1pm ish with a coffee cart, a french bakery, a butcher selling hot bacon butties and fresh meat, fresh fruit and veggies, soaps, candles, pottery and so on. See our Guidebook for more info. Blue Penguins can be seen crossing the road down by the harbour just after dark.
  • Vikkis place was nothing short of amazing. We booked in late & were checked in within 5 mins of booking. Vikki was super helpful recommending a place to dine and nothing was a problem for her. Highly recommended if you are looking for something nicer than your Main Street motel but don’t want to pay the world. Bed was super comfortable and bathroom super clean. Breakfast supplied was really nice also.

  • Separate little building in the garden gives you privacy. Huge bed, huge TV, good wifi, tiny bathroom and everything that you can see in the photos. For us was strange, that there was no outlet in the bathroom, and that really small basin. We didn't meet anybody than Shannon, and a black cat. The check in and out could not be easier.

    Róbert2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

  • Shannon B&B is perfect for one night. The bed is OK, the bathroom is quite small. The bar stools for the table are too high, it is very difficult to have breakfast with them. Otherwise everything is clean and okay for this price.

  • A nice wee apartment with an incredible view out over Oamaru. I had a great stay and found the bed super comfortable.

    Sandi2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a smart apartment that is well appointed with great sea views across Oamaru. All the charms of Oamaru (the Victorian district, Steam Punk etc) were easily accessible. The description is accurate and it is a great place to stop-off and rest up. Rick was easy and pleasant to deal with, and checked in on us whilst we were there to ensure all was well.

  • This is the perfect spot to relax. Looking out over the fields of sheep and cows seemed to cause an instant calming feeling for us, the view was so pretty. The space is actually much larger than we expected from the photos and we had lots of room. Plus the deck was huge - perfect for morning coffee. Having laundry right in the suite was awesome.

    Kate2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed our stay. The view is awesome and it was so peaceful. The unit itself, while narrow, doesn't really feel that way. The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking. We were glad to see a coffee press / plunger. We found the bed comfortable. It would be nice to have a small table but where to put it could be a problem, unless it folded up.

    Nancy2020-02-08T00:00:00Z

    Our eco-friendly cedar cabin is the perfect place to get away from it all. Watch the sun rise over the ocean and set over the mountains. Enjoy a coffee while watching the sea birds soaring below and keep an eye out for dolphins (or, if you're very lucky, a whale!). Only 10 minutes' drive from Oamaru with its Historic Precinct and the end of the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail, and with the beautiful Kakanui beaches just down the road.
    Our property is fully off the grid and powered by solar power (with battery bank/generator back up so you won't run out of power!). The cabin is small but fully equipped for a comfortable stay. There is a full kitchen with fridge, oven & grill, stove, toaster, kettle and coffee machine. Tea and coffee are provided and there is also a barbecue for guests to use. Or just pop across the road to Coast Cafe & Restaurant for their fantastic local blue cod and chips (open Thursday - Sunday). There is a dairy/convenience store 2 minutes drive away - a great place to stop for an ice cream on the way back from the beach! There is fully covered storage for bikes behind the cabin.
  • We absolutely adored staying in this lovely cabin. The design is compact but luxurious and styled really well. The cozy fireplace kept us very toasty. The location is great - close enough to Oamaru to see the penguins come in at night but out enough to be really quiet and peaceful. Perhaps best of all is the wonderful view of the ocean and sound of the waves lulling us to sleep in the very comfy bed. It was delightful to be able to enjoy a gorgeous sunrise from bed. Ross, their dog, is a very good boy and came over to say hello.

    Holly2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a private off the grid Lifestyle cabin, luxurious with all the modern amenities coupled with boundless ocean views experience, then this is the place for you. It was most certainly that for us. Our Host Laura gave us complete privacy except for a brief daily visit from Ross the Gentleman, their adorable hunt-away collie mix. Set on the coast , a short drive East off the main State Highway 1 and nestled on sea cliffs above Kakanui , I highly recommend Laura’s AirBNB not just for the ambiance but also for the amenities and the understated graciousness of our Host who made this a memorable stay for us. Though the local Dairy supplies basic needs, you will need to bring your own groceries to take full advantage of the well appointed kitchen.

    Karen2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

Enjoy our private garden. 5 mins by car or 10 minutes walk to the Historic Precinct, Blue Penguins and the sea.
    The Retreat is a self-contained space on the ground floor of our family home on Avon Street. Our home is not the Ritz as it is an older style property, but the location is! Nesting on the hill overlooking the Oamaru Harbour taking in stunning sea views, Avon View is conveniently located between the Yellow Eyed and Blue Penguin Colonies and only a short walk to the Historic Precinct, Steampunk HQ, I-Site, Cafés and Restaurants. The Retreat has its own private entrance off a secluded BBQ area and a beautiful fairy tale garden with big native trees, tucked away reading nooks and quiet places to collect yourself and be at peace. This listing is for our Sea View Room - a lovingly refurbished guest room with one supremely comfortable queen size bed.

King George Park, the Public Gardens with their bird aviaries, the Aquatic Centre and moreover the unique Steampunk playground – all at a very small distance - make our Retreat the perfect place for families. Only a 10min drive south is Kakanui, a lovely place to go for walks, swim or surf. Another 25min further and you’ll arrive at the famous Moeraki Boulders and the Moeraki Lighthouse - most significant breeding site for yellow-eyed penguins. Or drive an hour inland through the beautiful Waitaki Valley with its numerous lakes and walks...
  • This place has an extraordinary view from above the harbor. It’s a great location, very private and quiet. The amenities are also great with really everything you need. The host is extremely friendly and provided many little extras that made us feel especially welcome.

    Steven2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely home in a prime location. We were so close to the blue penguin colony, tunnel beach, and the city center for food, shopping and the cool steampunk museum. Host left us fresh tomatoes from her own garden attached to the property that is pure magic! We amassed a ton of post cards, and I finally found an inspirational place to sit and fill them out. We loved our stay.

    Lee2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • BEST STAY IN OAMARU! Absolutely incredible view, thoughtful touches and simple check in. Easy walk from town if you’re happy to talk up a steep hill. Super comfy bed. Cannot complain about one single thing!

    STAY AT THE GROVE. Stunning views of the North Otago downloads awaits in our warm self-contained apartment. Features open-plan kitchen & living, private bathroom and bedroom with a luxurious king-size bed overlooking the garden and views. Beautiful setting with private entrance and plenty of parking. Make yourself at home, explore the area and rest in our flat furnished for comfort. Located on the bottom level of our family home just 10 minutes drive inland from Oamaru.
    The flat is on the bottom level of our family home. Please note the garden is a shared space used regularly by our young children. Guests are welcome to use the trampoline and interact with our animals (rabbits, chickens, sheep).
    Beautiful North Otago farmland surrounds the property. The local supermarket is just a 2 minute drive or 10 minute bikeride. The town of Oamaru and all of it's attractions is a 10 minute drive.
  • We had a really good stay. The countryside is great in this area, and the views from the apartment are excellent. Hosts were good to deal with and made our stay really easy. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable.

    Paul2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • There is no light damage at night, which is quite suitable for watching stars. It's a pity that when we went there there were no sheep on the farm, only rabbits and chickens could be seen. The beautifully furnished gardens and spacious rooms make this the best accommodation experience on this New Zealand trip. (Unfortunately, the baby didn't appreciate it, and fell asleep uneasily, and had two nights of XD)

    Jen2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Carolyn and Greg's listing is awesome! A bit far from the city but totally worth it! When checking in, the interior of the house was very clean and tidy, and the house feels carefully designed and beautiful! I also enjoyed the large and well-pressured bathroom when taking a shower at night. After waking up in the morning, you can go to the courtyard to see the cute rabbits and sheep. In short, highly recommend their listing!

    This is a Gardner's paradise with Rhododendrons,Azaleas,Camellias and Magnolias with lots of old and new Roses.A very quiet setting with farm views with Sheep and Deer in paddocks nearby with the sound of native birds in the morning and during the day.Just a stones throw from the town of Waimate,with walking and cycling tracks nearby and a new Restaurant with views of the ocean close by. If you love a round of a golf,we have the perfect course for you.
    Your room is very large so the only things to trip over are the couches,you also have a nice soft double bed and an almost large TV. At time of writing we are coming into winter and its a wee bit cool but there is a heat pump to keep you warm.
    Very friendly neighbourhood where people wave and say "Hello" There are a couple of houses nearby but the main views are of the garden and nearby paddocks.
  • Great little country town BnB, great hosts, great hospitality, lovely location, huge room,great place to spend the night or a few days. Loved the cooked breakfast.

  • Just a few minutes out of Waimate and you are in the countryside. The spacious and light filled room at the end of a corridor opens onto the lush garden full of birds. This welcoming family made us very comfortable. It was nice to be able to make our own cup of tea and the small fridge stored our cold items. Nice walks out the front gate made this an all round pleasant stay. Would definitely go back. Thank you!

    Tony2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • From all our Airbnb-experiences, these were the most welcoming and lovely hosts we've met! Colin & Colleen are incredibly kind and fun to be around with. Still, our cozy room was quite private (other end of a big house) and we never felt disturbed. We right away felt like being part of a kiwi-family, which was an amazing experience for us (especially over Christmas time). The garden is gorgeous, a worthwhile park is around the corner (with Wallaby’s and an aviary), walking tracks are right next to the house, easy parking etc. Overall 10/10 would stay again :)

  • This is a wonderful place to stay. I echo all of the other positive reviews. Kathrin and her husband are amazing, supportive, caring hosts. The private space has a great feel to it and has been perfectly designed. I especially love the walkable beach just moments from the front door. The whole effect feels like stepping briefly into a different, better world.

    This is an entire apartment with views to the Ocean. It is cosy and quiet and only 5 minutes from Oamaru but set in a beautiful rural environment. A new kitchen, cosy loungeroom and private courtyard with barbeque and separate entrance. Tea, coffee, milk and basic supplies in the pantry, as well as complimentary eggs from our free range hens and a sample of our own honey . Breakfast cereals provided . You will love it. A pleasant garden and views top it all off....while being handy to town.
    Built in the 1890s ,it was the original homestead for a large farm ....we are still exploring its history... It's warm and solid and still has plenty of character.
    Great neighbours...quiet area...
  • Great spot, really enjoyed our stay. Very quiet peaceful location, we had everything we needed, lovely and comfortable. Thank you.

    Robyn2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Carolyn and Gerry are a nice couple that have added a modern touch to an old farm house. Great view and friendly dog. Just a couple minutes down the road is Bushy Beach to possibly see penguins and seals on the beach.

  • Carolyn’s place was exactly as described. It was the perfect home-base for us during our visit to Oamaru. You are close to town as well as a number of beautiful beaches. We would definitely recommend staying at Carolyn’s and plan to bring family to stay there in the future!

    Kara2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great! We were warmly and comfortably welcomed by not only Carolyn but her dog. She was in her garden when we arrived and she gave us some freshly picked chard and squash that we used to make a great breakfast with the fresh eggs that were already in the cottage. There are views of the ocean, you can visit the sheep, goat, cows and chickens. It’s very close to town although it is a peaceful and quiet farm setting. Highly recommended!

    An unconventional property in a rural setting; a magical place from which to explore North Otago. Perfect for two people seeking the simple side of life in comfort. The cabin is located on my lifestyle block where I live with my large and friendly dog. I keep chickens and grow too many vegetables. The cabin is detached from my living spaces and you have your own private compost loo just a few metres from the cabin door along a level gravel path. Horse-riding, cycling, walking, fishing locally.
    Ti kouka is Maori for the cabbage tree which grows outside the cabin. The property comprises six distinct buildings. The main space is the kitchen/dining/bathroom and in a former life it was a truck. My sleeping cabin and your sleeping cabin are both perfectly conventional bedrooms and there is the guest loo, located next to the workshop and garage, as well as my study / studio at the back of the property. The guest sleeping cabin is fully insulated and snug, with a queen-size bed, electric jug, tea and coffee (on request) as well as an outside deck with table and chairs. It also has a heater for chillier winter evenings. A short gravel path links the guest sleeping cabin with its own private compost toilet. In front of the guest cabin is the cabbage tree from which it takes its name and a lawn with a hexagonal picnic bench. Around and about are raised vegetable beds and the chicken run. On either side of the lawn are the larger buildings. The dining/bathroom area includes al fresco sunken baths. Reaching this area from the guest accommodation is a gently sloping gravel path and five steps. The shared bathroom, which is accessed from the dining room, has a conventional shower and another compost loo. On the other side of the dining room is the kitchen which is very small and where I make myself busy for much of the time. The entire property is set in an acre of sustainable organic food gardens within the beautiful rolling countryside of North Otago and with views to the mountains beyond. There is no mobile phone reception anywhere on site which is a fantastic way to switch off and relax. There is, however, unlimited internet access available in the dining room whenever you want to switch back on again. The silence caused by lack of phone jabber gives ample opportunity to listen to the song of the bellbirds and to watch the fantails.
    Cabbage Tree Cabin is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful and varied North Otago countryside. Horse-riding is available locally; ideal for complete novices or beginners. It is on an individual basis (one rider at a time) with a former riding school owner who will lead you around her farm on her quiet and well behaved horse. You will be on private tracks where access is not otherwise possible, so you will see amazing views of the landscape and have the opportunity learn about farming in North Otago. There is a separate charge for this activity. Oamaru is only 25 minutes away by car. There you will find cafes and restaurants as well as any amount of shops. It also contains the world famous Steampunk HQ and has its very own penguins and fur seals. The Moeraki Boulders and Fleur’s Place restaurant are 50 minutes’ drive. A choice of beaches and river mouths are a 30 minutes' drive. Swim-holes in local rivers are also close. More locally you will find Elephant Rocks; and the Waitaki River, its lakes and tributaries are great for trout and salmon fishing. The Alps2Ocean cycle trail passes just 6km from Ngapara. There are other cycling and walking tracks aplenty straight out of the gate, or within a short drive. I will be happy to provide more information about all these activities upon request.
  • We enjoyed our stay at Liz's place. Liz is a lovely host and most accommodating. Our room had a very comfortable bed. The composting toilet was no problem at all. Staying here was a very different experience but one we are truly glad we had. Carolyn

Great location, we loved the short walk in and out of town and was an opportunity to see the neighbourhood. Had coffee and cake in the morning at the little coffee shop in front of the school a few paces from the house; 5th generation bakers so worth a visit. Had a lovely meal in Cucinas close by, all in all delightful. Would recommend and will stay again if in the area.” M

  • It was such a treat staying in a historic cottage while visiting Oamaru. The comfy king bed was also a huge plus. The cottage is also an easy walk to the historic downtown and around the corner from a great coffee shop and bakery. Friendly hosts who have a bunch of great tips to boot. Absolutely wish we budgeted more than one night in such a great town and such a great air bnb.

    Lauren2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you desire and need is provided. Outstanding thoughtful hosts. Truely our best air bnb experience on our road trip. Would recommend with no hesitation.

    Diane2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about Clara's Cottage. It was beautifully decorated and the large king-sized bed was heaven to sleep in. Unfortunately, we only stayed one night but wanted to stay longer to enjoy the cottage and explore more of Oamaru. We would definitely stay here when next in Oamaru.

    Keely2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best house we have been. Beds, sheets, towels, blankets, It's all very comfortable and clean. No cons at all. We stayed for two nights with our two daughters, it was just perfect stay. I recommend his place !

    New Zealand's first Shed & Breakfast is the ultimate farm stay experience. The transformed shed is a quaint, self-contained accommodation with a rustic chic atmosphere. 210 hectare organic sheep, beef and crop farm. Enjoy organic home cooked meals! Cheers.
    My farm is at Hunter, just off Highway One 210 hectares of land, fed by wind, rain and sun Over 500 sheep and 90 plus cows Provide some of the work for a few of the hours Cooking and creating are also included And driving the quad bike it won’t be excluded Fresh eggs, milk and bread are always provided And vegetables as well, just digging required Rustic, eco and friendly is your stay in a shed The pictures below kitchen, living room and bed So add to these pictures your personality and time Washed down with music, conversation and wine Just call me and visit, I assure you of fun My home it’s at Hunter, just off Highway One About the Shed and Breakfast: From the outside, the unit looks like just that. A shed. But never judge a book by its cover...Inside, the space has been transformed into a self-contained unit with a split level, open floor plan. The private space includes a bedroom, lounge, reading nook, breakfast bar, and kitchen. The bedroom has a queen size bed that sleeps two, and the lounge can sleep three (the reading nook converts into a double bed and there is also a single futon). Mornings on the Farm: The sun rises just outside the large windows in the bedroom, flooding the room with early sun. Mornings, especially in the spring can be lively. The birds wake up with the dawn and start their frenzy of nest making and feeding outside the shed. Also, farming activities start early so do not be surprised to hear the quad bike running around the property at early hours! Guests, however, are welcome to sleep in as late as they want to.
    Hunter Hills Organics is a 210 hectare, farm only 30 minutes' drive south of Timaru. The closest neighbors are several kilometers away.
  • The shed and breakfast is such a unique and enjoyable stay. A quirky amazing little building with character and love built right into the walls. Comfortable with everything you need. Cold on the colder nights but plenty of ways to keep yourself rugged up and warm and plenty of hot water in the showers. It was great staying with my parents. Dave is such a great host! We had dinners cooked by him on both nights which were delicious! Barley the dog made it even better! I will definitely return on my next NZ visit.

  • An amazing place to stay away from the big cities. David is a great host that loves to tell about his organic farm and show you around. We got this Airbnb recommended by friends and we will continue doing so as well. It is an experience itself and when you are there you can see previous guests loved it too. The house can host up to 8 adults I believe, but in that case some people have to sleep in an open room together. We just had the house for the 2 of us which was great and also 2 couples or some kids would fit perfectly!

  • David was a phenomenal host. He spent lots of time sharing his farm life with our family. We also had plenty of time to relax and take in the pretty scenery. We will remember David and his dog, Barley for a the wonderful NZ experience they gave us for quite a long time!

  • Everyone needs to stay at the Shed and Breakfast, a truly unique New Zealand experience! David's hospitality is sincere and complete. We wish we could have stayed longer!

  • David and Barley (his dog) were so friendly and inviting. The farm was absolutely fabulous. There is a human touch about everything in the place and it is just fabulous.

  • You can expect Quirky. You can expect wonderful hospitality and great food. Go for the evening meal. He's a great cook and with wine! Breakfast was incredible with fresh baked bread, bacon and eggs. The Shed is built with love and is so thoughtful in what it has to offer. It is warm and comfortable. It is clever and it works in so many different ways. I am sure we didn't discover everything it had to offer. So many quirky details. And then there is the chat. What an amazing guy Dave is, quintessentially a great New Zealand bloke, full of initiative, good ideas and such a lovely welcoming person. He also has a great side kick in Barley the dog. . . and we were able to drive his quad bike and view the farm. That was fun! You have missed out on an amazing insight in what makes New Zealand great if you don't meet Dave and Barley and stay in the shed and breakfast. fb/shedandbreakfast 10stars

  • Favourite Air BNB ever! David goes way above and beyond with nice touches and hospitality, the place was very well set up, super comfortable, and a lovely place to rest and recharge. What a perfect little slice of Kiwi culture he's created, AND we got to ride the 4 wheeler in the morning! Highly recommend this spot - we loved everything about it.

  • Just book it! If you're wanting a true New Zealand experience, this is the place for you. As a solo female traveler, I was a little apprehensive about booking a stay like this, but it was a truly awesome part of my trip through New Zealand. David goes out of his way to make sure you're comfortable and enjoying your time at the Shed and Breakfast! He cooked a delicious chicken and chips dinner with an amazing salad on the side. In the morning, he baked warm fresh bread and brought it over with his lovely dog, Barley. There were farm fresh eggs, bacon and muesli to make inside the little kitchen as well. The exterior may surprise you, but I promise the minute you walk in the front door, you'll nod and smile and be glad you booked this one! It was luxurious glamping. I will be honest and say that if you're used to hotels and all that, this is different, but in a good way! David seems to have a pretty full booking schedule and I'm not surprised! With his kind hospitality and considerate amenities, this is certainly a special place to be.
