Welcome To Sharika Farmstay

Sharika Farm is a coastal property with superb sea views, 200 acres situated 6 kilometers from the village of  Porangahau, 4 kilometers from the beach 45 kilometers on the east coast of Waipukurau, Central Hawkes Bay.


Your hosts Andrew and Sheryl will guarantee you an enjoyable and memorable holiday you will never forget, we offer you a unique opportunity to relate with nature, rest and relax, participate or observe the activities of the daily running of the farm. Imagine waking up to the sound of the sea, the chirping of the native birds and the smell of fresh clean country air and see the lambs and sheep, enjoying the lush green pastures and the cows watching over their calves.

We are a working farm with cattle, sheep finishing lambs and a Suffolk stud, three friendly Beardy Huntaway dogs, 2 horses, pet lambs/sheep, 2 fluffy cats, ducks, chooks and 2 special goats. Holiday with nature, the natural unspoilt land, immersing yourself with the Kiwi way and culture.

Share our lifestyle, whether it be shearing the sheep, mustering the cattle/sheep, feeding a pet lamb or a stroll up the hills, take a picnic hamper to the beach. Experience a true New Zealand farm stay holiday of a life time.
