We stayed in the Cob Cottage; it was wonderful. Everything about the cottage is just right; the furniture, materials used, the views, the beds and bedding, the outdoor kitchen and seating area, the bathroom and all the finishing touches. The highlight is having a hot outdoor shower looking down at the river and the far away mountains. The cottage is... More

Warm people, stunning view. This is one of those places you must visit to complete your new zealand experience if only for the sights, the people and the peace. The shower and bath facilities are inspired and I really suggest bringing a swimming costume. Next time I *will* be bringing a bottle of lagavulin and a good book. This is... More

We had a wonderful stay (March 2015) in the cob quarters cottage in a beautiful and peaceful environment. Off the Mapp is also a sheep farm. We visited this remote accommodation during the period of sheep shearing and we were invited to take a look at the sheep shearing. Roland explained the process about the sheep shearing and the hard... More

We stayed at the Farmhouse which was very comfortable for the 5 people in our group, there was plenty of space and also a collection of toys for the kids to have fun with - we were also lent Billy the goat as a temporary pet which our kids absolutely loved. The scenery is magnificent and constantly changing as the... More

Once in a while you are lucky enough to visit somewhere that truly captures you. This is one such place. A stunning location, really cool accommodation (several options depending on what kind of experience you're looking for), lovely hosts, and that feeling of truly getting away from it all. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something... More

We searched for something quiet and really off the beaten track - certainly found it at Off the Mapp - Jenny received us as we arrived and took us to and from the Boundary Creek Hut. This is about 10km on off-road / cattle roads up into the valleys where you only come across beehives, sheep and wild goats. Lovely... More

We stayed in the Farmhouse for 3 nights, and really enjoyed it. Our six year old son adored meeting Jenny's kids, and they brought him right into the mix of feeding pigs, chickens, hanging at their "swimming hole", etc. Jenny was such an amazing hostess, and Roland helped us out in a jam. We hiked, fished, and drove into town... More

We found Roland and Jenny to be excellent hosts and much enjoyed our too short stay at Spray Point Station. It was a great opportunity to see conservation and hill farming in action and the surroundings were breathtaking

I stayed in the remote Boundary Creek Hut with 4 young boys and we had an absolute blast. We swum in the local rivers, day tramped to see stunning high country vistas and even shot a goat, which the hosts kindly butchered for us. Completely amazing.
