“Fantastic Farm Stay - fun for whole family!”
Reviewed 29 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed one night at Karetu Downs and my kids did not want to leave. Bruce and Karen were very welcoming and kind. We loved the tour of the farm in Bruce's truck and my children loved feeding the animals and seeing Bruce sheer a sheep. Accommodation was simple, clean, and comfortable with comfy beds. Highly recommend!

Thank you Megan and Eric for your lovely review we are delighted you all enjoyed staying here at our farm. Bruce loved taking you around the farm in the 4 wheel drive as you get to see some real NZ hill country. I particularly love to see the kids having fun feeding the pet sheep and getting close so they can feel their woolly coats. Thank you for staying at Karetu we enjoyed meeting your beautiful family. Best wishes Karen & Bruce

“Very warm and welcoming hosts in the most beautiful location”
Reviewed 9 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Karen and Bruce were so kind and friendly - we really enjoyed chatting to them over breakfast. The accommodation and location were beautiful and we had a really relaxing stay. The hot tub on the veranda was an added bonus. Our only regret is that we only booked to stay 2 nights.
