  • Description

    Description

    We are an older couple, Ian & Louise, who have travelled extensively and live in a large home in the very attractive Hawkes Bay village of Havelock North. All six adult children have left home and spread around NZ and Australia.
    We are NON smokers, keen readers (with a reasonable library), chess player, kayaker, bush trampers and enjoy the company of young travellers.
    This is the heart of the wine and food district, sunny and warm climate for most of the year with a very long and interesting coastline.
    We have a large 2 storey house with spare bedrooms and a larger urban garden plus two holiday rental lodges we built in 2010 which are located in a stunning coastal site an hour or so south of our home.
    There is always some maintenance work to do at both properties of a more or less light nature so could suit a young guy, singles or a couple of young ladies travelling around NZ from overseas, looking for a short stay to discover our region and improve their language skills.
