  • Description

    Description

    We are located in the Far North of the North Island, between Doubtless Bay and Kaitaia.

    We have 3 acres of land, with 2 streams running though, a few established fruit trees and a small vegetable garden.
    We have a goat, chickens, cats, kittens and guineapigs.
    There is always something in the garden to be chopped, weeded or tidied up. It's never ending!


    We are a friendly, sociable family of 5, and we would love you to come and be a part of it.
    Our children are 14, 9 and 6.
    All the children are involved in scouting, as well as myself.
    They love exploring beaches, camping, and swimming/snorkelling.
    Our eldest plays the ukulele and has a go at surfing.
    They all love playing Lego, board/card games and on the Xbox too!

    Plenty of great beaches around here. The closest being Cable Bay, in Doubtless Bay, just a 10 minute drive away.
    Matai Bay, our favourite camping spot is just 30 minutes away, and a couple of lovely lakes are all within a 15 minute drive from here.
    90 mile Beach is also about 20 minutes away.
    Our nearest town Kaitaia is a 15 minute drive.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It's important to us that you get on well with children, and are non smokers.
    Kaitaia has a cinema, library, outdoor pools and shops.
    You can do a bus tour to Cape Reinga which is fun and informative.
    There is a bus to Kaitaia which caters for people getting to and from work so it leaves early and returns dinner time which anyone can use, but I am often out and have room in the car for extras.
