Waiarjipa was a great stay. Very welcoming, homely, our hosts, Robert and Kathy went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Our granddaughter loved the interaction with the super quiet dogs Hunter and Lucy, and so enjoyed being able to go and help feed the horses, the donkey, pig, goat, and sheep. A great breakfast was enjoyed by us all with each of us having very different things. A very interesting stay.

Thanks Robert for a most welcoming and relaxing stay. The room is superb, The chocolates and biscuits a delight, your dogs are fun and you are both very pleasant people to spend time with. The Korean dining experience was novel and a great suggestion, thanks again. And the breakfast porridge, in fact the entire breakfast and time we spent with Cathy and yourself set us up for a great day

We enjoyed our stay at Robert's very much! The size of the bedroom is as big as a hotel suite, in this room it has a comfortable double bed, and a separate single bed. Modern furniture with tea and coffee making utilities. Great table and chair for working on laptop. Outside the room by the slide door is a mini kitchen, with refrigerator, microwave, pots and pans etc. Huge wooden deck outside the room, sculptures, flowers and cozy chairs with umbrella stands. We have our own spacious bathroom and toilet. The wifi of the house is fast and stable, great feature to have to plan the holiday. Robert is an open-minded and well traveled host, also a great business mentor. Cathay is probably one of best sports horses breeder in the region. Their property has a few acres of land around, with sport horses, pet animals like donkey, pigs, and chicken. Tall trees are around, and it's very quite, we did not hear any noise in the room. Robert's is around 10 minutes drive to Papakura station, where you can catch a train north to Auckland Britomart (train STH), and south to Waitomo Glowworms Cave, National Park, and Wellington via North Explorer Train (run by Kiwi Rail Scenic). The Kiwi Rail Scenic train only operate around 3 times a week, check the schedule on their website. It's also convenient to travel by coach on Intercity Coachlines, to destinations like Hamilton, Matamata (Hobbiton), Rotorua, Tauranga etc. The bus station is at Drury (opposite Countdown) I would recommend Robert's to anyone who want to have a true farmstay experience.

We had a great stay for a short amount of time. Robert and his wife were friendly and helpful when showing us around the property. They provided toiletries, towels, snacks, coffee, and tea. The room was clean and very spacious for 3 and the large detached bathroom was clean with a lot of counter space. They are not too far from the airport, about 20-25 mins without traffic. Outside of the initial meeting, we did not see them but they were approachable if we needed anything else or had any questions. Nice backyard area with access through the bedroom. Bonus, we were able to meet and feed some of the animals on the property! Would recommend! Large and clean space with a bonus petting farm!

There was so little communication i had no idea if i even had a place to stay when i arrived.. my daughter and i continued to message asking questions and letting Robert know about our arrival time etc. Being the very last day of our trip i was completely disappointed. We had a very grumpy introduction, the room was very large but VERY hot, their was no air con or fan and if you opened the door their was still very little breeze and a scary cat would come inside.

Odpověď od Robert:
After over 12 years of nothing but good reviews, we get a shock. Point 1. We made it clear that we may not be here (In fact we would be out of communication) and actually gave early notice of that. Point 2. The house sitter was advised that Rebecca with 2 others would arrive in the morning, Rebecca had our French house sitter wait until later in the afternoon before only 2 people arrived. Point 3. The early agreed deal was that as a early morning departure was to happen, self service for breakfast was agreed upon and the room charge would only be for the two - not 3. Point 4. As we were (As communicated early on) not home to give the daughter a professional riding lesson on a champion pony, the French house sitter was prepared to take the guests around (at no charge) and give them a tour of all of the 18 pony's. Point 5. A fan was not requested at any time, (plenty around) large sliding door can be opened onto veranda. Point 6. As many guests come to our farm stay to enjoy the animals, each and every one of our animals, including sheep, donkey, dogs, pig, horses and especially the cat are super friendly. Perhaps the over friendliness of the cat in question created a fear factor. In conclusion: We are sorry to have heard (Your information to the house sitter) that your holiday was sadly ruined by a major disagreement between your partner and yourself (Hence only 2 arrived). Had we been there and done everything possible we may still not have to have been able to put you into a better state of mind. We are sorry that your holiday did not work out and of-course are only to happy to have you back to give you the same positive experience others having so happily received.

Robert's farm was the perfect place for our last night in NZ before catching an early flight out from Auckland airport. It's a beautiful property - with sheep, donkeys, pigs, dogs, and cats all available and ready for friendly petting and scratching. The easy drive in to AKL took about 25-30 minutes. Robert was instantly welcoming and made us feel right at home - providing milk, tea, and coffee so we could quickly make a cup before we snuck out the next morning. The room was large and comfortable and had everything we could have wanted.

We can pick up to 5 guests from the Int. Airport (Not far away) in day light hours and drop you of at any station at a minimal cost – easy trip to Auckland Central - travel free worry. Experience true quiet peaceful rural surroundings, BBQ’s and our "animal petting farm" Two well trained lovable house dogs will greet you with wagging tails, before you relax in one of our two special guests rooms.
