Palliser Bay, New Zealand
Located in remote Palliser Bay, the Foley Villa offers a luxurious, yet relaxed and authentic New Zealand farming experience.
The Foley Villa sits on Wharekauhau Country Estate, a five thousand acre working farm and luxury lodge on the southeast coast of the North Island. Framed by the Rimutaka Ranges to the west and Palliser Bay to the east, the property is surrounded by ancient, native forest, spectacular rugged beaches, bountiful rivers and tranquil lakes.
The three bedroom villa is split between two levels and joined by an Oamaru sandstone staircase. The villa has a light and bright Hamptons style feel that has been designed to incorporate as much natural light as possible with high ceilings, large windows, and full sliding patio doors. All three guest suites have stunning views across Palliser Bay, and the downstairs master guest suite also opens out onto a private paved courtyard. Each room has a private ensuite bathroom, complete with claw-foot baths and separate showers. The sweeping front patio extends out to a heated infinity pool for summer barbeques. There is an outdoor gas fireplace with seating and exterior music for those still summer nights.
With 5,000 acres of rolling farmland and native bush, choices abound for walking, biking, horse riding and ATV adventures. Explore the historic property to see sheep dogs and the shearing shed at work.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
