Guest Review:
If we could give this place a 10 star review, we would. The place is very spacious and set out with lovely decor - it's very comfortable and extremely easy to settle in. The view is incredible and it is very serene. It was the perfect distance to town and amenities but far enough removed that it was like a little getaway. On top of all of that, Jessie is an incredibly generous and kind host and it was an absolute pleasure to meet her.

It's a sweet and clean place with beautiful scenery. The room was well-equipped with all kitchen ware and heating. Outside the lovely stay, the grass is green and lush even during winter. We really enjoyed the farm tour Jessie brought us and we even got a chance to carry a baby lamb!

We stayed at "Moonlight Acres" for 3 nights. The apartment was neat and comfortable. A balcony overlooks pastures and hills beyond. Waking up and having a morning tea or coffee sitting in the balcony watching farm animals graze by was a delight. Craig took us around his farm, and we loved feeding his pet alpacas, sheep and goat. They have dog who is very friendly. Highly recommend this place for guests who want a quiet, scenic and comfortable stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Jessie's place. The area is very quiet and the apt is well equipped with a modern kitchen which has every thing you need to cook your own meals. Jessie was very welcoming and we enjoyed the presence of the farm animals below our balcony! We wish we could stay longer and would recommend this place to people wanting to relax in a quiet environment!

Location is ideal for a couple or family who are looking to relax. It's only a 10 minute drive to Hamilton which is convenient for Food or popping by the Hamilton Botanic Gardens. The animals at the farm were lovely too. Had a great stay there and wished I was there longer. Highly recommended!

We had a great stay, the view is fantastic and calm environment. Feel great to wake up in the morning, looking at green and animals. Jessie gave us some eggs from her farm, organic fruits and herbs from her garden and flowers all over in the cottage which are beautiful. Love the animals around the house, they are just lovely and cute. Thank you Jessie and her family for such a unforgettable stay in New Zwealand.
