  • Description

    Description

    We have a large kiwi woolshed we have turned into an amazing funky home and apartment. It is set on a beautiful farm property with forests and a creek and many animals.
    We are close to the Waitaki river and the lakes for swims and fishing over summer.
    We enjoy wholesome food and enjoy cooking with organic produce from the garden.
    We enjoy making cider, meade and snapps. We run accomodation too at the Woolshed.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We collect a number of musical instruments to play. Baby grand piano, guitars, drums and so many more.
    We enjoy hearing where people are from and share a cultural exchange around the dinner table.
    We make yummy food.
    You could learn basic drumming, ukulele, bass guitar playing, longboard skateboarding. We live at the bottom of a club ski field and locals often go up on the weekend over winter.
    I'm interested in herbal medicine from the plants on the land and enjoy harvesting and making tintures amd balms. We have an interest in the wine industry and like to try wines on occassion.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are some great trips around the area. Hikes and mountain climbs for the adventurous. The river and lakes are so beautiful and well worth exploring as are the elephant rocks. It would be good if you had your own car or we travel to Oamaru so could pick you up on certain days.
