We own a traditional New Zealand villa on 5 acres a few miles from the town of Geraldine which is in South Canterbury in the South Island. Andrew works in the agricultural business and I am now retired but busy with my horse Bramble who I ride regularly. Andrew enjoys playing golf & more than happy to take anyone who plays to the local golf course. We also have a Highland cattle called Gimli and an Alpaca called Bilbo plus elderly dog Shadow. Our self contained unit which is rented for holiday makers is available for Workaway couples who would prefer to 'do their own thing'. We have been welcoming guests from all over the world for over 16 years.
