You’ll love our place because of the totally unique setting in a rural environment, in the heart of an historic land mark farm and grounds of Beacon Hill Estate. est 1862.
For a special country experience without the inconvenience of isolation or distance, You will find our place is close to all the local amenities, shopping, cafe's and restaurants that are a short 3 - 5 minute drive away. Situated just 2.5 km from the edge of Richmond shopping centre and 15 minutes from the airport.

The space

The recently built shabby chic apartment with a vintage and french theme, is set in the shell of the old milking shed. Built in the early 1900's and now converted in to accommodation for family and travellers wanting a special country experience without the inconvenience of isolation or distance. The apartment is both rustic and comfortable and an additional trundler bed is available if required for an additional guest. The rear of the apartment is undergoing planting and landscaping and is in yet to be completed

Guest access

The apartment is self contained and guests will be able to enjoy the immediate grounds, interact with the pet deer, pig, yaks, ducks and other farmyard critters from time to time.
You may like to hike on the farm and this can be discussed with us.

Interaction with guests

We live on the same property in the homestead 250m away and will be available to help if required. Of course we would love to meet you. You can find out more about our property and activities by searching beaconhillestate in Richmond New Zealand.

Other things to note

There will be occasions where farm activities may be occurring and you could be asked to give consideration to the movement of animals or other vehicles.
There is a country shop on the same property and this is open 2 or 3 days per week for limited hours. There is also an Equine Veterinary clinic that is used once or twice some weeks for out patient examinations. These activities can be observed or ignored but be aware that other vehicles may be in the area. The toilet facilities that you use have separate access from the apartment and from time to time these may be used by other visitors to the property. We will ensure they remain clean and serviced.

Absolutely delightful farm stay - loved the peacefulness of the area and Roger and Rebekah are delightful hosts. So lovely to stay somewhere with personal touches and quirkiness, unlike the mass produced motel rooms. Would stay there again without any hesitation - Christine and Steve Hart

Response from Roger:
No, we didn't cancel. The apartment wasn't available at that time and it was immediately communicated to the enquirer.

Best Airbnb we stayed in yet on our NZ trip. An oasis outside Nealson. You get what it says on the site. We were first guest to stay there and Roger and Rebekah went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Real coffee beans and grinder Wonderful. Setting magical. Needs a tiny few things to make it perfect have left private message for Roger and have no doubt they next guests will be even luckier than writing were. Could stay here for quite sometime. Enjoy next guests.
