The space is perfect for one or two guests; peaceful, light and warm, self-contained and clean. The kitchen space is suitable for basic food, ample choices for cafes and restaurants nearby.
Perfect for couples , intrepid travellers, adventurous souls.
Great local pub for evening dinner at the Hurunui pub just north of us or the newly opened Hogget Inn in Hawarden, with mountain views. An easy one hour drive to Christchurch or 40 minutes to Hanmer Springs. Plenty to explore in the area including, Lake Taylor, Hurunui River, Frog Rock, Waipara wineries. For info on the wines in the area read this:
  • Georgi’s place is a beautiful escape from the city - exactly what we wanted. We got to hang out with her dogs& horses and walk by the farm which was a nice change. Although there’s no WiFi, it’s a good place to wind down and the space was designed efficiently. We stayed with her just before trying to catch our ferry back to Wellington from the South Island (just before the lockdown) and she made us feel comfortable, checked up on us, and extended help wherever needed which gave us peace of mind in this difficult period. I’d go back again. Thanks a lot georgi!

  • My partner a I had a great time at Georgi's place. A very stylish, well presented and clean property. We would definitely come back

  • Had a fantastic stay at Georgi's place. We loved it and got some great local info. We enjoyed the visits from labs Paddy and Milo. Would definitely recommend this place. Thanks Georgi so lovely to meet you.

  • Our second stay in the woolshed and we just love this place. Georgi and Willi are such gracious hosts and have great advice on fun things to explore around area. Loved the daily greeting from the Labs - Paddy and Milo and the polo ponies. The woolshed is the perfect escape from a bustling world!! Cannt wait for our next stay

  • Great place to stay

  • Such a wonderful place to stay. Perfect for a quiet weekend away

  • Lovely private spot out in the elements with beautiful scenery of horses and paddocks. But still a warm and cosy set up that is the best of both worlds. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend making the trip to the wineries nearby (we went to Black estate). Only downside was the kitchen element of the listing is a toaster and Esky, so we couldn’t chill any wine properly or cook ect, but luckily we had food planned, but just something to note on planning your stay :)

  • The woolshed was very cute and still kept its rustic charm. It was very well appointed and the perfect space for a couple. The shower and bathroom were not what you would expect to find in a woolshed, but rather what you would expect of upscale accommodation. Georgi was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed and more throughout our short stay. Would definitely recommend a stay if you're visiting the area.

    Waikari, Canterbury, New Zealand

    Formerly The Dutch Station. A home away from home in beautiful North Canterbury area. This modern, private unit has two bedrooms, lounge and fully self contained kitchen. Sky television and free Wifi are available.
    We are just off State Highway 7, down a short gravel road and once you arrive, you will be in awe of the surroundings. Very peaceful and relaxing. Or soak in the spa pool while soaking up the views. The apartment is spacious with modern furnishings plus there is a portacot and childrens' toys.
    Because we are situated in Rural Canterbury, which makes Bentleys Country Stay an ideal spot, there is a Four Square shop in the village of Hawarden to stock up on supplies. There is also a Countdown Supermarket in Amberley for supplies. Hawarden Tavern and Cafe is a friendly place to visit with meals available. There is a 24 hour fuel stop in the village for refuelling your vehicle.
