Here at Marni's we want every visitor to have an awesome time. 

We love when our visitors have lovely words to say...

The Riding School


“Isobel has been riding with Marni for more than 4 years. In that time she has gone from a timid rider, who would be scared of walking near a horse to a very confident rider on any horse. This has happened due to Marni’s patience and ability to connect with the rider and horse. I would highly recommend Whangarei City Riding Centre”.


My daughter, Liza, started horse riding lessons in Marni’s school when she was 7 Years old. Now she is 12 years old and still enjoys coming to this magical place. She loves everything here – lovely, very smart collections of horses, cats, dogs, goat and ducks. In this, a very safe, beautiful and clean environment she has learnt how to be not only a good horse rider, but to be a careful, patient, brave and happy girl. And I love to come here as well and be around this farm, feeling like there is always sunshine!

Home Sweet Home Stay

Our beloved dog Jack

“Jack has been attending Home Sweet Home cat and dog homestay five days a week for the last three years for doggie daycare.  He often has overnight stays and spent three weeks there last year when we went overseas.  Jack is a rescue dog and sadly was ill treated when he was a puppy so he has his issues!!  I can’t express enough how much he loves going to Marni’s. 

Although he is very attached to us, as soon as I turn in her drive, he is yawning with excitement and wagging his tail wildly.  He jumps out of the car without hesitation and he enjoys his runs out on the farm!  I know I can drive away knowing that he is safe, happy and exercised. 

Marni provides an environment that is truly a home away from home.  Jack has become more socialized since being with Marni and less aggressive when we take him on walks and he meets other dogs.  I would not hesitate recommending Marni’s dog stay as she provides a safe, loving home and treats every dog as if they were her own!”

Our Dog Cooper

“Cooper has been going to home sweet home since he was 12 weeks old. We love the five star dog and cat home stay.

The attention cuddles and walks that Cooper gets from Marni and Wendy shows when we pull up the driveway… he can’t wait to get out of the car.
The fully fenced property and house is ideal for the dogs. We never hesitate going away now as  he loves staying here. Highly recommend this home stay!!”
