    2-3 staying here and 1-2 in winter.
    This is a family business, run by Nick and Jenny .We have one adult child living at home and one overseas.
    We are very active and like, MTB, paddle boarding, golf, hiking, skiing and enjoying nature.
    We are social and enjoy interacting with workawayers but also like our down time.
    There are many areas in the house to enjoy.

    We include workawayers when ever suitable and have many contacts in Nelson .
