Tokarahi Homestead (1878) is midway between Christchurch and Queenstown, and 35 minutes drive from Oamaru. An authentic, restored, limestone homestead. Sympathetically restored in classic Victorian style, using quality imported period wallpapers and fabrics (William Morris designs), a combination of antiques and collectibles with original New Zealand art.
3 rooms: 1 Superking or Twin and 2 Queen, all with ensuites. Central heating, and open fires ensure comfort year round. Candlelit dinners. Country breakfasts are served in the morning room, or al fresco in the garden.
Landmarked by its giant redwood tree, in gentle rolling limestone country, Tokarahi Homestead was built in 1878 by wool baron Alexander McMaster. When his son married Annie Reid from the neighbouring estate, the impressive front entrance hall and reception rooms were added as a wedding present.
