The yurts were very comfortable but a long way to the outhouse. Primitive but beautiful. the outdoor kitchen provided all we needed to prepare our meals. A central lodge had free internet. Had to search for the owners to pay them in the morning.

Perfect Great value Always to be remembered We brought a group of 6 year 8 students for a final time together before going to high school. From this trip we will always have great memories I can only imagine the place to be perfect for weddings where the key people stay on in the acomodation after the proceedings

This is situated in a pretty spot in the Okuti Valley and this property definitely suits it surroundings. Amongst it are a few yurts and tipis which provided a unique experience. It's not luxurious so if you don't like going camping style then this may not be for you. There was enough room for two adults and two kids in...

Our family had an amazing time at Okuti Garden and can't wait to return for more peace, quiet and total relaxation. The garden was gorgeous - with little rooms under trees for relaxing in, fairy lights and lanterns when darkness set in. We slept in a spacious, beautiful yurt which had the most comfortable beds. We were woken by bird...

So sad that we only found this on or last night - though fortunate as we may never have left! If you want a truly magical NZ experience where you feel a hobbit might pop up at any minute searching for a ring, then this is it! Scenery is phenomenal, accommodation is such fun and the owners made us feel...

I came here with my best friend for my birthday this year and loved every second of it. Beautiful piece of land, cute and friendly pets and total relaxation. We stayed in the lower yurt and it was amazing. Super comfortable, it felt as if you were in a hotel room. Although it didn't have power, there are plenty of...
