More information

Built in 1926 for the Paganini family, Holly Homestad is an excellent example of "Arts & Crafts" architecture mixed with casual country chic.

You can feel that the people who lived here over the years lived well. Your hosts, Gerard and Bernadine (Bernie) Oudemans have tenderly refurbished the house and created a boutique B&B only three minutes drive from Franz Josef Glacier village.

Facilities

Choose from one of the king, queen or twin rooms; or the new deluxe super-king suite for that extra bit of decadence.

All rooms have their own private ensuite, crisp linen and bathrobes provided. Start your adventure in Glacier Country with a generous breakfast at the wooden farmhouse table and enjoy the charm of a country kitchen.

Holly Homestead is a proud member of the Heritage & Characters Inns of New Zealand and has achieved a Qualmark 4 STAR PLUS rating in the 'Guest & Hosted' category.

Wireless Internet and laundry available. Children 12+ welcome. Full breakfast included in tariff. Seasonal rates apply.

Activities

On a clear day you'll be entranced by the view of the Southern Alps and the Franz Josef Glacier Neve.

Gerard and Bernie are NZ born and enjoy meeting and hosting people from all over the world. They can suggest just the right activities to suit you and your holiday style.

Go exploring at your own pace and return home to an alpine sunset before retiring with a glass of port to the guest lounge and your welcoming bed.
