Visited this beautiful location with my wife and two young adult children for four nights as our first stop on a two-week 'dream trip' from the US to NZ...What an experience!!! Our home was a beautiful and well-appointed 2BR cottage located across from the main homestead...Richard and Antoinette, owners of this 5500 acre working sheep and cattle station, were the perfect hosts. From the warm welcome, to the fantastic home-cooked dinners, to the fun-filled tour of this beautiful property, to the guidance on places to visit in the Culverdan/Canterbury area, they made sure our visit was a memorable one! I cannot recommend this 'real New Zealand' location more highly, whether traveling solo, as a couple or as a family. Although we traveled to other locations throughout the south island during our visit to NZ, we all agreed that our time at Pahau Downs was the highlight of our vacation!!

We were treated to terrific accommodation in a modern cottage with ample room a lovely warm fire , as well as a generous breakfast.Richard was more than happy to keep the fire burning whilst we were away exploring the local area.Then we were treated to an extensive on farm tour with Richard guiding us around his farm .All was a very enjoyable experience. Highly recommended we will be back when visiting NZ again
