  • Description


    This is an experience of dipping your toes into a new world.

    I personally feel that each individual should be ready and up for the challenge, as this is a different and wild place.

    We are located 25 minutes *Out* of Raglan on a scenic reserve.

    For getting to the farm, we can pick you up from Hamilton or Raglan.

    Our focus is creating a high ecosystem that benefits nature, animals and humans, also to be self sustainable along side with outdoors, art, surfing, music and much more.

    We have two different positions available.

    Please when writing to us give us a description of which position you would like to be involved in and how you would suit this position.

    We are detailed people and always go for our best, we have passion for what we do and we are loving people.

    One vibe, One tribe

    Welcome to Our plave (Overveiw)

    We are a really creative community, many people has contributed its growth and still does, lots of love has gone into this place.

    We have different building with multipurposes like chill zone, warm room or casa. We do a lot of art and we love music. We all love to surf and go surfing as much as we can. We also host a festival here.

    We have two gardens and heaps of great projects as we are working towards being self sustainable. Our facilities based on spring water, solar power and waste managament.

    We are open to any new ideas and keen to try anything that will help our community.


    Main house - Casa - has a big kitchen, really nice lounge area with a fire place, a piano, different instruments and board games. It has a dining area which looks down a beautiful bush view. We do not have fridge, tv or wifi. We use solar power for our lights and to charge our phones. We have reception around the house and also in the rooms.

    We do not offer food and the closest shop are in Raglan so you need to provide your own food.


    We have 1 long drop near the Casa and 3 long drops up on the hill. We are currently working a proper composting toilet near the Casa but this project is still under going so might not be ready when you are at our place.

    We have an gas califont shower in the spa area which is outside of the Casa. It has always hot water, good pressure and beautiful view if you let the door open.

    We have another shower inside the casa that works with fire so only avaliable if we have a fire going in the house.

    You will have a private room but other spaces kitchen, shower, dining area etc are shared! Please be aware of it and respect everyone's space. Clean as you go and please leave every place as you find.

    Raglan is 25 minutes drive from our place, it is not really walkable. We live out in a scenic reserve, have our own space all around us.

    You do not have to bring your own towel, sheets or shampoo etc. As we provide them. If you'd like to bring your own shampo, body wash or hand wash please pay attention it to be ecofriendly as we recycle the water from showers and kitchen to the garden and orchards.
