    The Great Barrier island is only run on reticulated power so everyone needs to have there own source of power and water and fireplaces for heat. It is a more difficult and involved way of living with such a rewarding feeling. Come and enjoy with us.

    We have recently finished a tiny home project which you will see in our pictures. Our next mission is to slowly work on our property, building bush tracks, creating an organic vegetable garden, composting and building small structures like fish filleting benches and working on creative little projects around the property. We love to get you to teach us what you know and if you love cooking we would this to be a part of your day.

    We are keen to get a yoga enthusiast to get onboard. We will often go fishing in a boat in the evenings so a group clean up effort and sorting out the fish is a fun part we all do.
