Hurunui Hills - Eco Cabin
Our Cabin was created after guests to the farm on a tour said "It would be amazing to stay here", The rest as they say is history.
Hurunui Hills is in North Canterbury - a 1-hour drive from Christchurch, 30 minutes from Amberley, and 35 Minutes from Hanmer Springs.
The little off-grid cabin sits in a remote spot on the steep hill country farm - with incredible views of the Southern Alps, Hurunui and Waitohi Rivers. Sheep and cattle graze between the native shrubland that covers the hills.
The huge glass windows connect you to the natural world outside. Lie in bed and watch the sun's rays light up the mountains in the morning. In the evening, enjoy spectacular skies as the sun sets beyond the horizon.
Small, but perfectly formed, the cabin contains everything you need for a cosy and atmospheric stay. A comfortable queen-size bed, table for dining, sofa (fold-out for either two children or one extra adult) and wood burner are all contained within the cabin. A simple outdoor kitchen and shower are tucked into a covered area on one outer end.
Hurunui Hills is home to a family of the native falcon. Their calls can be heard before they can be seen. Harrier hawks also glide in the northwest warm winds above the cabin.
A short walk down to the creek will reveal the tranquil sounds of water - and piwakawaka and bellbirds dancing between the cabbage trees and Kanuka.
