  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with three children aged 3,7 and 12. We bought the property a year ago...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...

    Staying with us you have the opportunity to live by the sea,go fishing,swimming,paddle boarding,walk in the native bush,hear kiwis at night and maybe even spot one. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the area or hop in the car and explore what the neighbourhood has to offer.

    We are wanting to start our own food forest, expand the vegetable garden and do some landscaping and painting.
    There are always odd jobs to do so depending on the weather and season-we can talk things through and decide what job suits you best.
