Once your booking has been made, Melissa or one of our team will be in touch to coordinate your stay. We'll confirm when you expect to arrive, what food options you'd like to enjoy during your stay, and discuss anything special we can do to make sure your stay is as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
We love to greet our guests personally when they arrive wherever possible. Therefore, we encourage you to text us as you pass through Katikati or Te Puna.
Riverside Farm has a sign outside the first driveway as you approach from State Highway 2. This is your entrance. There's plenty of parking where you can have a quick stretch and take in the scenery while your host makes their way to meet you. You'll notice a stunning view of the Kaimai Ranges and our secluded valley.
The trip down to the accommodation sites is on a well-maintained metal road which is accessible by most vehicles. You are welcome to leave your vehicle at the top if you have any concerns driving the farm track.
Passing our friendly farm animals and heading into the scenic natural bush is your cue to start shedding the worries of day-to-day life and relaxing into your off grid get away.
Upon reaching your accommodation, your host will show you the amenities available for you to enjoy during your stay before leaving you to relax in the peace and tranquillity of your slice of rural paradise.
If you have had enough of relaxing on the deck in the ambiance of the native bush, the birds, and the river, there is a library of books, and a selection of board games and outdoor games for you to enjoy with each other. A quite stroll down to sit by the river is a must, as is indulging in the outdoor shower and bath. We invite you to browse through our visitor book and leave some tips to help those that follow in your footsteps make the most of their stay.
