  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of five with 20 acres situated in the beautiful Maraetotara Valley. Our 3 children are aged 15 years, 14 years and our 6 year old. We have a dog Teddy. We also have chickens, a Rooster, Scottish Highland steers, cattle and ducks. We have a small functioning vege garden. We live 30 minutes to the closest city, Hastings, 20 minutes to our closest village, Havelock North, 10 minutes to our closest beach and shop, Waimarama Beach and Ocean Beach and 2 minutes to our 9 hole golf course and bush walks.
    We live on an elevated site overlooking the valley out to the ocean. We have lived here for 9 years.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunites

    I am Māori and my husband is Cornish. Together we make a great team. We are both generous hosts and very hospitable. I am eager to incorporate my culture to those who are interested and also introduce our cultural cuisine, which, depending on the season, could include a traditional Māori hangi, if you are keen to help. Oh and my husband cooks the yummiest Yorkshire puddings.
