  • Description

    Description

    Enjoy the romance of helping tend our over-sized hobby vineyard, help restore our lovely stream, maintain a rambling house and swing in the hammock. Detox from the internet in our off-the-grid location (ie NO internet in this rural location). We're located between the boutique wineries of Martinborough and the dramatic coastline of Castlepoint. There's always something to do - tending, pruning, some machine work if you're comfortable and experienced with this, relaxing.

    For Oct 2020 the task is removal of some old fences in preparation for stream restoration. Heavy but satisfying work...

    We are both 6th generation New Zealanders, love Aotearoa/New Zealand and are keen to share our experience and history of this wonderful country. We're a middle aged couple, one of us is a superb cook, the other a doctor, both are musicians. Our place is a gathering point for friends, family, retreats and neighbours. We have traveled to many parts of the world, and enjoy welcoming people in return

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 20 km from the boutique wineries of Martinborough, on the way to the dramatic east coast coastline, and on a popular 60 km cycling route. The climate is warmer and stiller than in the towns of Wairarapa and dramatically better than Wellington!
