Your hosts are Janie, Jim and Sol. Our ‘mission’ is to create lovely spaces for creating and playing, and to provide clean, comfortable, affordable accommodation. We are eco-friendly, child friendly and vegetarian friendly. Just friendly, actually! You can stay in a yurt, house truck, earth brick studio or farmhouse, all set out around ponds and streams, fruit and nut trees, meadows, woods and organic vege gardens on the sunny side of the lovely Okuti Valley. If you want to offer a workshop or organize a gathering or retreat then the studio or one of the yurts can be set up for you to use.

At Okuti Garden you can stay in a yurt or a tipi or a house truck. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, and the accommodation is clean, comfortable, affordable and beautifully presented. There's also lots of space for kids and adults to play. We provide an art box and games, but there's no TV! There's a shared Garden Kitchen for everyone to use, and you're welcome to help yourself to fresh herbs from the garden. We are 4km from the head of the Little River Rail Trail and well situated for exploring the rest of the amazing Banks Peninsula. There are bicycles for hire in the village.
