    Description

    I live on a 5 acre block on the road to Bethells Beach., 45 minutes from the auckland CBD. I am 5 mins from the beach. The nearest railway station is Swanson. I have chickens , sheep and bees .I would be able to introduce you to the world of beekeeping if you are interested. I could teach you english too. The river runs next to my property. I have a 2 seater kayak which you can use to paddly 4 kms up river. Surfing is good at our local beach. You would have separate accommodation , 1 or 2 people in a self contained sleepout. Being by the river there is an abundance of birds.
