1. Free range eggs, organic vegetables and herb garden
Sustainability starts early in the morning at Jugglers Rest.
Begin the day with a free-range eggs and support a chicken’s happiness!
You can also add some free organic fresh fruits into your muesli, plus the tasty herb garden is at your disposal.
While you enjoy your relaxed start to the day the team is already busy with an Eco-friendly-clean of this beautiful villa.
The washing loves to hang outside in the sun or under cover lines.
They also stocks eco-friendly hand-made soap for guests to use.
And of course, everything gets recycled!
No worries if recycling in New Zealand is new and mysterious to you, the team is happy to get you on board with all their sustainability efforts on your arrival.
Maintenance work on the charming villa also has recycling in mind with many of the beautiful timbers and fittings being rescued from demolition yards and then stripped, sanded and rebuilt back to their former glory for a second life.
2. Fairytale meets circus
The special feeling that you get from Jugglers Rest begins as soon as you walk through its handmade, stained glass embedded, front gate.
Upon entering, you will find yourself underneath a ‘big top’ of green leaves and sun-kissed grapes with the beautiful Heritage-Listed villa peeking from a surround of lovely flowers, relaxed guests in hammocks, laughter and lots of juggling toys!
But not just the outside is full of lovely handmade decoration – also the inside welcomes you with cosy rooms and a warmly designed living and kitchen space.
Everything is made with great attention to detail so it won’t be hard to feel at home.
