  • Description


    We are an Irish couple who arrived in New Zealand with a back pack and tourist visa.Now 9 years later we have our dream home close to the beach with three gorgeous kids (our pictures are a bit dated will update soon). We are both well traveled back-packers when we were in our twenties. We are quite sociable and love to live kiwi style beach and BBQ's etc.... Our interests are surfing,kayaking,cycling, travelling,photography,listening to music and spending plenty of time out doors.

    We live on the Northshore of Auckland, a great location to be based to either hang out or go galavanting to all the amazing places Auckland has to offer! All amenities are within 5 minutes walk from our house- beach, boardwalk,shops, cafes, restaurants,bus stop to Auckland. Activities-coastal walking trails,reserves ,water activities-kayaking,stand-up paddle boarding etc
