Paua Bay Farmstay offers a unique experience.

Awesome Farm Stay!

Our family of 2 adults and twin girls had a great farm stay Murray & Sue's farm. The farm was on a high ground going through winding sandy roads but was easy to find. When we reached the farm, we were wowed by the beautiful scenery. Murray & Sue were very friendly and we really appreciate their hospitality. We had a great experience watching Murray & his son working in the farm during the morning. We also walked along a trail on the grassland and watched the sheep grazing while enjoying the scenery. We would recommend anyone visiting South Island to visit this farm!

We welcome guests to stay with us on our working farm. Breakfast is served in the inviting kitchen amid the sounds of a new farm day. After breakfast guests can choose to gather shellfish and observe seals on the private beach, explore the local environs or simply relax on the verandah surrounded by native bush and birdsong. 


If your stay happens to coincide with a scheduled Farm Tour you are welcome to join at a special guest rate. 

There are various walking tracks in the area, including Hinewai Reserve. Akaroa, a 20 minute drive away, is an extremely interesting historical village with many activities. Enjoy Dolphin cruises, Penguin tours, the Giant's House mosaic garden and many cafes and restaurants. Visit for a current list of events and further suggestions.
