Fue nuestra primer experiencia en Worldpackers, y no pudo haber sido mejor :) Simonetta y Gary son excelentes anfitriones, muy amables, nos sentimos muy bien recibidos, y muy cómodos con el alojamiento recibido. Las tareas a desempeñar fueron muy variadas, como toda granja siempre hay tareas a realizar, en nuestro caso nos tocaron todas al aire libre porque el clima ayudó, y tuvimos mucha autonomía para realizarlas. Súper agradecidos por la experiencia.

Gary and Simonetta are great. They are both very busy with their the lodge, so there is plenty to get involved in and learn about. And, the surrounding countryside is beautiful. This is a great place to disconnect from the city. There is plenty of potential if you are willing and ready to learn and work together. I am grateful for this time here- my first Worldpackers experience- it was wonderful. Would absolutely recommend.

Simonetta and Gary are the loveliest host ever! I really enjoyed my stay and can only recommend them. They are super friendly and always helpful with great local recommendations. The place is super peaceful and surrounded by a breathtaking view of the mountains. The chickens are a lot of fun and super sneaky :D saying goodbye to the dogs and the cats almost broke my heart! They are just as funny and lovely as the hosts! I would gladly go back there!

Staying with Simonetta and Gary was a lovely experience for us. They have a stunning property and made us feel very welcome throughout our two-week stay. We helped by gardening, turning over the houses after guests left, and clearing a vegetable garden of weeds. They provided food for breakfast and lunch, and we had a home-cooked meal every night we were there! The food was great, and Simonetta and Gary were lovely. The area was stunning, but I recommend having a car. I recommend staying with them if you get the chance!

Felt like being welcomed by a family. From the dogs greeting you to the chickens you feed every morning. As well as of course the hosts themselves Gary and simonetta I am forever grateful

We had such a wonderful time staying with Simonetta, Gary, and all the dogs and chickens on the farm:) The work was so reasonable and varied, we had a cozy room with a great view of the sunrise, and yummy meals everyday. This was the perfect spot to slow down and reset while we were traveling around New Zealand and we would 100% recommend the experience to anyone.

I had a very good expirience at the lodge. I got to da lot of different tasks; taking care of the chickens every morning and afternoon, looking out for the dogs, doing carpentry and helping out with kleaning out the houses after guests had left. Simonetta and Gary made me feel very welcome. Simonetta made a lot of good food, and we ate together most afternoons. I stayed there for four weeks without a car, so I had a lot of time to relax and disconect. It is a beautiful property, and I was lucky to be able to go on a few outings. I will definetly go back next time i go to New Zealand.

I had a blast during my stay, Simonetta and Gary were very welcoming and happy to have us! The work we did made a difference and was appreciated. Having a car during our stay made a huge difference to explore on off days. The property was beautiful, lots of great sunrises and sunsets here too 😁

My fiancé & I had a wonderful time at Simonetta & Gary's! I loved learning about the chickens, how the property has grown, and their life. We helped with building what will soon be a place for volunteers to stay and it was great to see our progress. During our 2 weeks we used our car to explore on off days, enjoyed sunsets, and lived a slow life on the property as many things are 30+ minutes away. It was a great way to unwind. Simonetta was a wonderful cook and Gary often accompanied her dishes with dessert 😁 thanks for a lovely stay, we hope to meet again!
