There are those who call New Zealand the most beautiful country on the planet. With snow-capped peaks, dazzling fiords, deep glacial lakes and long sandy beaches, it is without exaggeration a natural-world stunner. And it’s where you can take your escape to the unique eco-property Tinui Station Homestead.

Tinui Station Homestead has been extensively renovated to the highest environmental and aesthetic standards. (PQ Property Intelligence)

Set on a former sheep ranch near the village of the same name, Tinui Station comprises two sections: One is 126 acres of pasture, paddocks and regenerating native bush. The other is a 16-acre parcel containing an extensively remodeled main residence  of 5,275 square feet surrounded by organic flower and vegetable gardens and an organic mixed fruit orchard. Natural springs flow in abundant supply to the gardens and surrounding paddocks.

The main house is well suited for both relaxed and sophisticated entertaining. The large, open-plan chef’s kitchen and fresh vegetables straight from the nearby garden make preparing meals easy. The kitchen and informal living and dining area open out onto a patio for small gatherings, while the drawing room and formal dining room are suited to more refined functions.

While there are plenty of outdoor activities like surfing and hiking and biking to enjoy, New Zealand is a modern nation with all the amenities westerner city dwellers appreciate: good restaurants, museums and shopping in urban areas, such as Auckland and Wellington.

Perched at the southwestern most part of Polynesia, 1,000 miles southeast of Australia, New Zealand is certainly among the most remote of developed nations. That’s about a 16-hour flight from Los Angeles and about 24 hours in the air if traveling direct from London.
