  • Description

    Description

    I live in a small village (pop 600) in the North Island of New Zealand/Aotearoa. I am from the local iwi/tribe Ngati Rangitihi. I am a creator of stone sculptures, jewellery and many other things. I have chickens, 2 cats and a dog. I have been renovating my little house and the gardens. I am an organic gardener and eco activist. My extended family live close by and the Pacific Ocean is a 5 minute walk away and the bush is as well. I can offer unique local knowledge and experiences.

    What else ...

    There are many local tourist attractions within an hours drive of my house. The public transport is not that great but the beach is a short walk away and Whakatane is a 15 minute drive away, I'm happy to drop you off there to take in the sights and shops.
