We have built a single story wooden house over the last couple of years with help from lots of lovely workaways.Still a few jobs to do on the house, We are now constructing a sauna, steam room and bar area,also want to make a bigger pond for the koi carp,and plant more palms,banana trees etc. We live 7 mins drive from several beaches,shops 10-15 mins walk. We grow lots of fruit and veg and are always taking cuttings to grow on.
