A one bedroom 'mini house' in a bush setting. the space is small but perfect for 2 to share. there is a living/kitchen downstairs and a mezzanine upstairs. there is a small shower room and composting toilet. this offer is accommodation only so you provide for your own food.
we live just outside the little settlement of 'snells beach' and a short drive to the 'matakana wine country' area. there are plenty of things to do in your free time. the local beaches are lovely and there are lots of walks in the area. we offer our bikes for you to use to explore.

we have market gardens using a no till method called 'bio intensive'. this is not just organic gardening but creating nutrient dense greens for the local farmers market in Matakana. we enjoy meeting and socializing with people from different countries. we have traveled extensively ourselves and love exchanging travels stories!
