Time To Communicate

We would love to hear from you

We do our best to make your booking spot available to you on the dates you choose but may need to offer alternatives.

There is a wide range of options depending on your desired requirements and the number of nights and people.
We do not have a standard commercial type price list or charging system. We have a very different approach by offering a donation type opportunity.

Many care givers, parents or families cannot afford a commercial charge type holiday or time out but, they can experience CAIRNHILL FARM. Ideal for any private and quite getaway in an awesome Marlborough Sounds location. A donation can be $$  and/or by getting involved with a little help with some of the daily projects or operations.

A minimum preferred booking time is for two nights for 1 or 2 persons. A minimum of 3 nights is best. A week or so is awesome.

We are blessed with a unique piece of paradise we would like to share with others in a non-commercial and environmentally sustainable way with all who come. No Pre-fixed fees to make this facility affordable and as widely available as we are able to via your donations.

Various options for…
Holiday Accommodation. Camping Spots. Freedom. Parking. Glamping. Back Packing. Breakaway. FarmStay.
