Our enterprising owners at Aotea Macadamias run a ‘PET FRIENDLY’ Bed & Breakfast experience where guests can luxuriate by the pool, cook their meal on the outdoor BBQ facility then sit back and watch the sun slip down below the hills to the west. On waking, guests can participate in a continental breakfast consisting of:
home-made breads, muesli, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juice, home-made marmalade from a Barachel grapefruit tree, jam, orchard honey, free-range eggs and ham as well as freshly brewed tea/coffee.
It would be preferable for new owners to continue with these traditions to preserve and further enhance the reputation of this important adjunct to the macadamia business.
Guest accommodation comprises two bedrooms with a complete bathroom – shower over bath. The main bedroom contains a King bed and there are doors opening out onto the deck, BBQ, pool and garden area. The second bedroom has a single trundle bed which can be easily pulled out to provide two single beds.
The current operation only takes one couple at any time to ensure their absolute privacy and while youngsters are encouraged guests need to be aware that it is a working orchard. There is ample parking – even for RV’s and small horse floats and there is plenty of room for your horses to make themselves at home in the extensive grazing area.
