KAPITI COAST – HOROWHENUA near OTAKI
Hanawera Farmstay is a self-contained Eco-Cabin situated on our 50 hectares of organic farmland and native forests.
OUR FARMSTAY IS NOW NOT AVAILABLE FOR SHORT TERM RENT.
Given the difficulties of the lockdowns and mandated restrictions of 2020 to 2022 we have decided to no longer provide short-term rental stays.
The Farmstay is now being used by family and friends on a long-term basis.
We say a big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who came.
The information below should be disregarded, but is being left in case we do re-open the Farmstay some time in the future.
We would like to thank all the people who have come and stayed at our place.
We trust you enjoyed your stay, and appreciated something of what we are trying to do with our Eco-Cabin and on our farm in general.
