We are very handy to Hamilton Airport, just 4km away, the city centre is 8km, and the Hillcrest shops are 2km. Access to State Highway 1 is 1.2km along Newell Road or via the Tamahere interchange 2kms via Airport Road.

Guests comment on the lovely peace & quiet !

The Strawbale House

The House is constructed from 4000 bales of barley straw. These were then plastered with Adobe plaster on the outside and natural lime plaster on the internal walls. Over 150 tonnes of plaster were used in the construction. The internal walls were hand finished to a lovely glass smooth finish with a beautiful patina.

The 500mm thick walls not only give exceptional sound insulation, but coupled with double glazed windows they help maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year, cool in summer and warm in winter.

The lovely dry atmosphere is instantly recognised as the lime walls naturally "breathe" and absorb moisture whish is ideal for those suffering from Asthma.
