Help us create a place based on organic permaculture yet modern principles! Greetings. We are a family of 2 - myself and my son (12 years old). We love hosting helpers and guests. For the past 15 years I have been creating my "place" on a high hill overlooking Tasman Bay, minutes from Nelson New Zealand. This includes a food forest, fruit trees, glasshouses and vegetable growing. Our modern-style eco house offers upscale tourist accommodation. New creation is constantly taking place and care of the existing, all grateful for your help.
*️*️*️ Note: During Jan-Feb we can only host if you have your own tent or camper van. Thank you.

Todd Valley is just north of Nelson. You will need a car if you want to travel around.
Several beaches and beautiful walks are within minutes drive, close to Abel Tasman National Park (1 hour), Nelson Lakes and many many other attractions.
There are several walking tracks, and the vibrant food and art scene of Nelson. At the south border of Abel Tasman National Park is Takaka Hill, known for its extensive caving system, and some secret spots we can tell you about. The Queen Charlotte track and the Sounds are about an hour away and of course we are perfectly situated to enjoy both the Nelson-Tasman and Marlborough wine regions, a pleasant half or full day day out. ... and plenty more.
