4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Feb 2017
As we did not experience farm stay style accommodation before, it was a bit uncomfortable and less pleasant. However, we definitely 100% enjoyed night star watching, fire work on the second night and kayaking and quad bike activity on the last day. Dave is so welcoming, enthusiastic and warm heart. Hopefully, we gonna organize another trip with my extended family in another season soon. Looking forward to having thrilling & breath taking activities with Dave. Thank you.

    Reviewed 21 November 2014 via mobile

    We stayed at Aoraki Cottage as we had received a voucher in a travel auction (kindly donated by Dave and Nicky). We had an extra person travelling with us over our road trip - we found Aoraki to be the most expensive place for her to accompany us (she was charged double at Aoraki compared to what she paid elsewhere).

    Dave was welcoming and eager to please - we weren't able to complete any of the activities on offer due to time constraints, but if a true farm stay experience is what you're after, I suspect this would tick the boxes.

    The accommodation was very modest, but clean and located in a picturesque setting.

    I would recommend Aoraki if you were interested in a farm-stay experience.

    It's always good to arrive at a farm stay early then you can partake in all the activities many of which are free. We include use of the playground, trampoline, rope swings, badminton, eco- fire-bath, Brasier Fire and Spa Pool and a complementary Big Red Quad bike ride to the top of the farm hill for free. As can be expected Big Red Quad Bike Safari's Tours around the farm, Target shooting, small game hunting, fishing trips and Adventure treks cost a lot by way of time and money so we have to charge for these, but still half what it would cost elsewhere.
    Glad you all had a wonderful time and buoyed our picturesque setting.

    Dave and the rest of the Stanton family are one of a kind. Throughout my stay they were consistent with their warm, welcoming hospitality. They knew how to make you feel like you were apart of the family. Dave managed to give you the idea that you weren't just staying at a farm. Other than just enjoying the picturesque views of the farm land, Dave knows about numerous trails and scenic hikes only a short drive away from his house. Dave makes for one hell of a tour guide wherever you go and it was a great way for me to get acclimated to New Zealand. Highly suggest a visit here.
