Bernie & Gerard welcome you to Holly Homestead B&B. Our character home was built in the 1920's from beautiful native timbers.

Holly Homestead is a fine example of "Arts & Crafts" architecture. Choose from a selection of four well-appointed king, queen and twin rooms, or choose our deluxe super king suite, all with private ensuite bathroom facilities.

Franz Josef offers a variety of attractions, and we are happy to help you arrange your activities. Farmhouse style kitchen/dining - spectacular alpine view from the breakfast table (clouds permitting!).

A selection of hot and cold drinks are available at any time.
