  • Description


    We have an 18 acre lifestyle block just steps away from the Tuki Tuki river. We are a family of 5 people (2 away at Uni), 2 horses, 7 sheep, a couple of cows, 4 calves, chickens, 3 dogs and a goat.

    We run a working pottery and a holiday cottage on the property. We divide our time with the businesses, looking after the animals and lifestyle block and the demands of a family!

    The chance to see some great scenery, maybe on horse back if experienced rider. Chance to make pottery with a Master Potter. See the running of a life saving club and meet some lifeguards (3 lifeguards in family!!)

  • Help


    There is always a project/jobs on the go, so you might be painting one day or doing some handyman work another day. The work is so varied, from feeding the animals, maintaining the orchard and vegetable garden, collecting wood, general up keeping of the property. Occasional help with the homestay and main house is always appreciated. Also help with preparation of meals and clearing up after.
