Emma and Brad first arrived in New Zealand 10 years ago, they visited what was then called Goose Farm a small holding bursting with potential. They had a vision and a dream and slowly they moulded and shaped their home and business into what you experience today - The Falls Retreat.

The vision is to create a place that offers a great all round experience - charming accommodation, a beautiful setting, warm hospitality and rustic, delicious food. Brad is passionate about the food he creates while Emma is committed to creating a sustainable and welcoming environment.

Together they make a great team and with their two children, Jacob and Molly you will be sure to be greeted with a smile and an experience that you will never forget.
