Welcome to Pemako Farm's "The Kite"...your own private oasis of tranquility. Stay with us and experience a new kind of excellence.... laid-back, modern, boutique accommodation purpose built for those desiring quality, luxury and seclusion only a few minutes from the start of New Zealand's most popular National Park.
*One-night stays may be possible for a surcharge. Please make an inquiry and we will send a special offer*
Venture up the magical Marahau Valley to your own hidden sanctuary set amongst our 25 acre farm. The babbling waters of the Marahau River flow through the length of our farm and the shimmering hills of the Abel Tasman grace every vista. Wake to the singing of native birds, enjoy all the Abel Tasman National Park has to offer right on your doorstep, and unwind at the end of the day amidst the private, purpose-built surrounds of your own luxury villa.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with a welcome basket featuring a selection of local nibbles and beverages, including provisions for your morning breakfast.
Options at and nearby to The Kite and Pemako farm include: taking a dip in our refreshing River swimming hole; exploring the Abel Tasman by your choice of adventure: by boat (sail, water taxi, Eco Tour), on foot or kayak (solo or guided), by canyon adventure, or by horse back; washing away the day in your indoor-outdoor shower or soaking in your outdoor over-sized bath tub while gazing up at the Southern Hemisphere night sky; meeting our varied farm animals; lapping in the luxurious outdoor living spaces we have created for your enjoyment; tour the little village we call home by bicycles provided for your convenience; enjoy local cafe offerings from gourmet burgers to a-la-carte dining; and explore the greater Top of the South from your own luxurious piece of paradise.
It is our sincere pleasure to invite you to experience The Kite and we strive to do whatever it takes to offer you the best trip possible. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to accommodate special requests or needs you may have.
Our recommendation is to spend a minimum of three to four nights at the Kite, so you can truly take advantage of all the varied activities in the area, and feel refreshed for the rest of your NZ adventure.
After over a year of planning, building, landscaping and finessing, "The Kite" is ready to go and we look forward to welcoming our guests!
*The Kite is part of our STAY FOR GOOD programme. Five percent of all gross proceeds will be donated to charities in New Zealand and across the globe that focus on giving children a better life*
We are a "Texan-meets-Scotsman-in-Kiwiland" couple, and love to share our beautiful slice of paradise with new friends. Our family includes our two gorgeous young daughters, and at last count, 14 animal friends! This menagerie is comprised of donkeys, horses, chickens, cows a dog, and a cat. We love the outdoors: climbing, tramping, swimming, gardening, trail running, volleyball, horse riding, kayaking etc. We love reading, good music, and movies. We have really enjoyed being hosts on Airbnb and sharing our fun, relaxed, slighter-toddler-chaotic home in the middle of paradise with new friends. We are now thrilled to move the accommodation experience from inside our home to a purpose built luxury villa, which we hope our guests enjoy staying in as much as we have enjoyed creating. We have travelled extensively and hope to show you as much hospitality during your stay at our Pemako Farm as we have been fortunate enough to experience on our sojourns around the world. Look forward to meeting you!
*We have a STAY FOR GOOD programme where five percent of all gross proceeds will be donated to a worthy cause either here at home in New Zealand or further afield. The only criteria is that the cause supports a better life for the world's young people. Thanks for helping us help others!*
