    Description

    ****We would love some help with out Lavender Plantation*****
    We live on a beautiful lifestyle block 5 minutes from Waikanae (1 hour North of Wellington). We are a family of 4 (2 boys aged 10 & 12 and a dog) who love NZ, the outdoors and travelling. We've had lots of cultural exchange persons and they have always enjoyed staying with us. We like to host properly so you are essentially part of the family when you stay with us and we will show you the local sites. We have a large house, extensive grounds, including a lavender plantation and a hot tub outside.
