    Description

    We are a family with three children aged 4,8,13. We live in an old kauri villa (built in 1925-thats old for New Zealand) in a stunning remote area with Kiwis on our land. You can usually hear them every night. If you are lucky you may see one.
    We love healthy food,good company and fun!
    Our property needs some TLC to bring it up to what we want it to be like...So it’s work in progress...
