Nanekoti Farmstay

Stay With The Bauer Family For A Night Or Two

We know that while walking Te Araroa is very rewarding, it is also really tiring, so why not stay for a night or two at our place and rejuvenate?

Our farmstay includes a double bedroom, living room with extra bed, bathroom and kitchen facilities in our fully furnished and comfortable loft (separate from the main house). You are also free to borrow the mountain bikes, or take a swim in our pool if you wish to do so.

Furthermore we can provide you with three European meals a day and can help organise re-supply.

Friendly and helpful service is assured and you will probably like to meet our two cats, dog, chickens and goats (nanekoti).

Te Araroa: New Zealand's Trail

Te Araroa is a 3000-km trail stretching from Cape Reinga in the North of New Zealand to Bluff in the South.

Down the coastline, through the forest, across farmland, over volcanoes and mountain passes, along river valleys, and on green pathways through seven cities.

It's one of the longest walking routes in the world. Hundreds of volunteers worked over ten years to put the trail in.
