Our Farmstay was listed with Bookabach, when we paid an annual subscription fee for the web service they provided. This meant you could have direct contact with us, to inquiry about our Farmstay, and you paid us directly into our bank account.
However, it has been taken over as HomeAway, who now charge commission fees on each booking. They charge about 15% on all bookings, and we list the Farmstay at $125/night (2 people) most of the time — $150 during high seasons. To protect their commission they prevent us from communicating directly with you, and all communications and payments have to go through their website.
However, you can book directly through this website by contacting us — CONTACT US: below.
You will be charged our rates of: $125/night + $25/extra adult (or $15 for children under 16, but free for under 3 if in their own bed). There are beds for 4 people (one queen and 2 single), and two people can sleep on the sofa in the main room. For the sofa, bring your own bedding/sleeping bag, and the extra person cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children.
From Christmas to the end of January and at Easter the rate is $150/night for two people, with the extra costs remaining the same.
We include a breakfast basket of our own organic or local food.
Please inquiry for discounted rates during the week, or for longer stays.
You can also go to our Hanawera site on Bookabach or on HomeAway
