    Description

    Hi
    We are a young swedish/kiwi family of four living on the countryside of Upper moutere -15 min drive from Motueka. We moved in to our property of 2 Ha 1,5 years ago and are since working with development of the land. We are passionate with projects, everything from installing animal fencing, making veggie gardens, planting trees, hedges, building a guest house, kids zones, and general nurturing and maintaining of our beatuiful land.
    We have two lovely daughters (1,5 and 5,5). The oldest one is enrolled with the Steiner kindergarten in Motueka where she goes 4 days /week. We have a holistic approach to health and life and eat and live in symbiosis with what we consider being a balanced lifestyle for us. This is also a key element in our interests like music, meditation, yoga, business development, relationships and education.

    On our farm we have a handful of sheep, two Kune Kune (NZ pigs!), two dogs and soon chicken. We are also in the process of welcoming another young family who will soon move in with their housetruck on our land.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Me and my husband are travellers by heart and soul -more actual travel before we settled with family. So bringing the energies of travellers to our house is an alternative for us to still meet different cultures and people, and an opportunity for us to hold a space where younger travellers (or older) can find rest and rejuvenation in this beautiful setting and share and exchange experiences and stories.
    We are happy to share what we have learnt on our journey going from solo travellers to family life, from Stockholm city life to farm life and together with you exchange experiences and skills that can benefit our mother nature, development of our land and ourselves.

    We have a big property with lots of little magical places for privacy -enjoy reading, meditation, yoga or other gymnastics out in nature. We have 15 min drive in to Motueka, 30 to Kaiteriteri, Marahau and 45 ish min to Nelson. If you want to go over the hill to stunning Takaka and Golden Bay it takes about 1 hr 20 min.

    Nearby there is a sports center with lots of sporty activities going on. Check the Moutere Hills fitness center online. Yoga, table tennis, volleyball, boxing, gym etc etc. We are also close to a buddhist center with weekly meditation classes, workshops etc. The surroundings are great for beach and river swims, workshops, bush, bike rides, fish and chips on the waterfront.. Most things maximum 15 min drive away.

    Hence to the distance to other children and friends we are mainly looking for a “big sister” that is passionate about children and play, who will be an extra hand with the kids. But, saying so, depending on who you are and when you come, the help required could be anything involving helping outside, potentially inside the house. We will discuss this before you arrive.
