What our guests think…


We were very excited about our upcoming stay at cowshed488, It exceeded our expectations on all levels! Georgina was so helpful from first contact with clear instructions and lots of helpful tips on what to do in the area and was quick to reply to any questions. The house was Simply Gorgeous !! warm and very comfortable .There was an array of lovely farm fresh items left for breakfast. We really loved our stay and would highly recommend it to others. Congratulations Georgina on your achievement! we would love to come back one day .


From the blue neon sign on the veranda welcoming us, to the freshly baked bread, fresh farm eggs and other extras waiting for us in the kitchen, everything about our stay at Cowshed 488 was perfect. Beautiful art, gorgeous linen, beanbags on the veranda, super relaxing couches. It was an oasis of calm and a great spot to come back to after days spent exploring the West Coast. Can’t recommend it enough.


Cowshed 488 is one of the best airbnb on my list. Georgina is fantastic host. She provided us with some breakfast meal including eggs, milk, and freshly baked bread. She even suggested some local tips on what to do around Westcoast. She is very accomodating from the start till the end of our stay. Cowshed 488 is a home away from home. My one year old son enjoyed cow spotting around the backyard. The weather was not that great during our stay but we had a great time just staying in the house. I love how Georgina decorate the place. Everything is perfect and it really exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to stay again at Cowshed488. Thank you so much Georgina! All the best!


We had a lovely stay at the cowshed. Georgina's home is absolutely beautiful, the styling was gorgeous. We enjoyed all the special touches. One of the nicest Air BnB we have stayed Thank you would highly recommend


Words can’t describe how gorgeous Cowshed 488 is !!! I highly recommend staying here - everything you need for a relaxing stay - was a great stop for us when travelling from Central Otago to Marlborough.


Wow - what an incredible home! It is clear that Georgina and Stephen have put an enormous amount of thought and work into Cowshed 488. Each room in the house is of a premium standard. It is a beautifully renovated farm house, with an amazing verandah all the way around, stunning views, peaceful surroundings and Netflix if you need those box set fixes! Breakfast was provided - bacon, fresh eggs, freshly baked bread (yum!) and all other essentials. A lovely large and fully functioning kitchen meant we could prepare proper meals, and the views from the dining table were hard to tear our eyes away from. There is so much space in and around the home but it still felt cosy and homely. Beautiful big bathroom with roll top bath and walk-in shower. High quality toiletries and soft fluffy towels. Extremely comfortable bed in the lovely master bedroom, and robes provided for each guest. Cowshed is in a great location for exploring the West Coast and the Tasman area. We saw loads and didn’t feel like we were stuck in the car too much. A highlight was definitely Nelson Lakes, which was only just over an hour & half away. Communication with Georgina was really easy, she was quick to respond to messages and provided detailed directions and check in/out instructions. We had a very special week at Cowshed 488, it really exceeded our expectations and we hope we can return one day. Thanks Georgina & Stephen!


This is one of our best stays in New Zealand. The place was immaculate and super stylish. It was perfect for our family for the holidays or anytime. Plus the host was super communicative. We highly recommend this place and host. We already want to come back for another stay! It was a gem that we didn’t expect.


Our Cowshed 488 experience was simply perfect. The house itself is stunning, with every last detail considered. The moment you enter the house it feels like you've arrived home - from the warm & beautifully styled living room, bedrooms & bathroom, to the stylish, state of the art kitchen. The surrounding area is classic, lush West Coast dairy country - gorgeous. Georgie & Steve should be very proud of what they've created.


We felt like it was such a privilege to stay at cowshed488. Our family had such a brilliant time and have made memories to last a lifetime. The villa is perfectly appointed with everything you could possibly need.


This place is absolutely stunning! You feel warm and welcome when you enter this house for the first time. We enjoyed every minute of it! What an inspiration.....!


The Cowshed was a highlight of our trip - luxurious and welcoming. We loved our farm walk to meet Hank the pig! Thanks Georgina and hope to visit again.
