My husband and I recently spent a weekend at Tarata with our son and his partner. The whole experience was great right from the get go. Trudy and Steve were amazing hosts and the treehouse accommodation was perfect. The fridge was stocked with breakfast supplies from juice through to yoghurt, cereals and fresh fruit, all at no extra cost. If you are wanting to see some of NZ's most scenic country then I recommend doing a scenic raft ride with Steve. He is a real character and had us laughing for 3 hours relaying stories about life on the river. His knowledge of the area is amazing and it is clear that he loves what he does. The men had a great afternoon trout fishing and Steve knew exactly where the trout hung out. The place is incredible and there is nothing that this couple wont do to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Its a real winner!
