    The stunningly beautiful area of Tapanui is wonderful, where travellers may experience the true small town NZ farming and rural lifestyle. Tapanui was used by Disney as the setting for the film "Pete's Dragon" starring Robert Redford. I offer a comfortable and warm home, I am environmentally conscious, and fascinated by the stories of my visitors. Excellent walking tracks surround this small town.
