Hello. I have been hosting for 10 + years and have over 50 positive references - on various hosting sites.
I live in McLeod's Bay on the side of Mt Manaia, overlooking the beautiful bay.
Many great walking tracks from my house, and walking distance to two bays.
I have a 16 Yr old cat (and very fat) named Babigurl. She used to be a stray cat before she moved herself in and made friends with me so she had a very difficult former life. Cat lovers only plz.
I am a professional singer and a former professional bass player. I love to sing & dance. I love to sing more than anything in the world!! I'm a rock jazz, country, blues singer that's not to uptight and quite open minded about different lifestyles cultures and outlooks with a GLBT friendly home.
I AM A LCHF / KETOGENIC eater which is the opposite of vegetarianism and veganism so you wont find carbs here. For this reason unfortunately I cannot accommodate vegetarians and vegans.
(I love cooking and food. I may have to bake for you as I miss baking ..but i wont be eating any of it.)
I love fishing and in the summer I love camping, hiking and snorkeling (i want to learn to scuba dive and will do so when I get the $$$ together), gathering seafood, fishing, boating & being at the beach. It's a great thing live near the beach!! I love portrait photography and I'm a newly developed artist, enjoy painting landscapes.
I love board games I am also a bookworm with an insatiable appetite for books
I love to travel, and have been around the world (East all the way around to be exact) l will never get sick of traveling. Even small day trips are great fun! I enjoy being witty and I DO break out into song at a moments notice!!
My personal philosophy is atheist. (no-religion.) However I do believe in the universal truth, which to my mind is living a good life based on listening to your conscience. Respecting others right to believe what they want and I'm open to learning about all cultures and lifestyles.
I enjoy Interesting people with a GREAT sense of humor and intelligence. Musical and artistic people and people that can tell a great yarn (a story about their experiences) I like liberal open-minded critical thinkers.

I WORK VERY LONG HOURS SO MY BIGGEST REQUIREMENT IS HAVING SOMEBODY TO HELP ME KEEP THE HOUSEWORK AND GROUNDS MAINTAINED
- Water & weed gardens.
