  • Description


    My names Liz and I'm turning my 5.4 hectare block into my own piece of paradise.
    I enjoy having younger people around as I used to teach organics and permaculture at Polytechnic.
    Its on a mangrove estuary about 30 minutes from Kerikeri town and an easy walk to historic Marsden Cross.
    I go into town once or twice a week so you're welcome to come too.
    Swimming, tramping, kayaking, fishing and pick your own oysters.
    Friendly cows, hens and a wee Shih Tzu dog.
    Ive two kayaks so friends can go out together
