Finalist in the Airbnb Host of the year awards 2022 - Best Nature Stay
The Rocks is a stand-alone, new 3-bedroom property. In the middle of a working dairy farm, you will find yourself in a beautiful, private and restful setting.
The Rocks has been designed with your ultimate comfort in mind with spacious bedrooms, bathrooms & living areas, tastefully decorated, a relaxing outdoor bath and all the amenities you could need.
We also love to treat all our guests to home made & local produce.
Situated in the beautiful Hinuera Valley of the Waikato, “The Rocks” is given its name by the spectacular, Ignimbrite* rocks that carve the Valley.
Before the eruptions of Taupo about 300,000 years ago, The Waikato River, New Zealand’s longest River, flowed through the Hinuera Valley and eventually entered the Hauraki Gulf.
The eruptions caused the direction of the river to change, leaving us with the valley as we see today.
*If the volcano creates a stable plume/cloud, rocketing to great heights, the pumice and ash is blown sideways and collapses to the ground decorating it like snow. If the mass is too cool, it cannot rise as high and suddenly falls to the earth at pace, creating a flow that moves across the land at incredible speed. When the pumice and ash settles, it is hot enough to stick together to form the rock, Ignimbrite.
With these beautiful and historic rocks running through the back of our farm, it seemed unfair not to be able to share them with you all. Gaze over some of New Zealand’s most incredible natural features while relaxing in comfort and style.
