  • Description


    Kia Ora Guys. My husband and I are based in the lovely Waimauku just outside of Auckland. We have three dogs, two cats and usually a table full of people working with us on our property. We have a vineyard, fruit trees, a small vegetable patch which needs a some love and lots of projects around the property.
    I run my businesses from home which include a food and beer tour company so our helpers always get to come and explore the city with me too. My husband is in the IT industry.
    We love music, cook great food and we're only 15 mins away from the black sands of Muriwai beach.
    Our upcoming projects include building a pizza oven, planting some new fruit trees, expanding our vegetable garden and creating a secret garden.
    We've had lots of helpers and volunteers with us over the years and love to share our world with them. Perfect for couples, friends or if you're travelling by yourself.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is so much going on here and we love to share it. If you want to learn in the kitchen, I love to teach people. Our gardens are perfect for people who want to learn about flowers, native plants and vegetables. Lots of our helpers, wwoofers and team members have enjoyed the variation in what we do and of course the food tours!
