Your Hosts ... Bernie & Gerard
The rimu timbers of this colonial homestead seem to whisper history. Built in 1926 for the Paganini family Holly Homestead is an excellent example of "Arts & Crafts" architecture mixed with casual country chic. You can feel that the people who lived here over the years lived well. Choose from one of the king, queen or twin rooms; or the deluxe super-king suite for that extra bit of decadence. Start your adventure in Glacier Country with breakfast at the wooden farmhouse table and enjoy the charm of a country kitchen. On a clear day you’ll be entranced by the view of the Southern Alps and the Franz Josef Glacier Nevé. Go exploring at your own pace and return home to an alpine sunset before retiring with a glass of port to the guest lounge and your welcoming bed.
Your hosts Gerard and Bernadine (Bernie) Oudemans have tenderly refurbished the house and created a boutique B&B only three minutes drive from Franz Josef Glacier village. Gerard and Bernie are NZ born and enjoy meeting and hosting people from all over the world. They can suggest just the right activities to suit you and your holiday style.
Holly Homestead is conveniently located approx 1.5km from the township of Franz Josef Glacier in a semi-rural setting. Easy walk to town or a short drive.
