  • Description

    Description

    We live on a large farm at the bottom of the North Island. My husband runs the farm and I run a cafe on our farm which is very busy over the Summer months with tourists passing through to the beautiful Cape Palliser.
    We have 3 children 13, 11 and 9.

    We love having backpackers join us and have had many from all over the world over the years!

    We live in a beautiful part of New Zealand. We are just 5 minutes from the beach at Lake Ferry and 20 minutes to Cape Palliser where you can see many seals and climb the lighthouse. We are just 15 minutes south of the wine village Martinborough. We have a large, beautiful farm for you to look around.
    Guy and I have 3 children - 13, 11 and 9 and we are a busy couple with the farm and a cafe on our farm. We are used to having visitors around as we have had 9 au pairs and many other volunteers/ over the years.
