The Kauri Lodge Apartment has two bedrooms, one furnished with a queen and a single bed and the other with a king and a single, plus there is a single bed in the lounge. It includes your own private guest lounge and dining area, plus kitchen facilities. While enjoying the view and relaxing, you can have a private BBQ, quiet conversation and drinks on the deck. A short walk can take you to our plantation of native Kauri trees or around the farm if organised with the owners.
The Studio Unit has a queen and a single bed, with plenty of room for another bed, plus a kitchen. This unit is about 100 metres from the main house but it also has amazing views from all the windows and deck.
Nearby, our beautiful “town of trees” Cambridge, has many attractions including cafes and restaurants. It is now the home of cycling in New Zealand, after the completion of our new Avanti Velodrome. Cambridge is also the equine capital of New Zealand, where many famous horses have been bred and trained.
