  • Description


    Kia Ora,
    I am very blessed to live at Taipa in the beautiful far north of the North Island on a 1.72 hectare lifestyle block within easy driving distance to the beautiful beaches of Taipa, Cable bay and iconic Pohutukawa lined Coopers beach.
    Cape Reinga, Spirits Bay and the giant sand dunes at Te Paki are a 2 hour drive.
    An easy commute [20 minutes] to Kaitaia and plenty of gorgeous beaches to explore along the way.
    Character filled Kaitaia Saturday market recommended for amazing locally grown coffee, fresh garden produce, and freshly baked bread & happy vibe.
    Mangonui village short drive with lovely cafes/restaurants, art gallery promoting local artists to explore.

    I share my home with a wide variety of animal friends including:
    Dogs Ella, Willow & Mr Snuggles
    Cats Spider, Fliss & Moose
    Kune kune pigs Oscar & Boris [friends not food!]
    Geese Jethro, Ellie Mae & Lulu [have their own lily pond]
    Ponies Pokie, Nikau & Twinkle Donkey
    4 Bantams & a collection of wild Mallard ducks who are very comical & have decided it's a pretty cool place to chill out at !

    Would love to meet people willing to help out for a few hours each day in exchange for accommodation/meals.
    Perhaps you could share your cooking skills ,conversations, laughter along the way at Te Papa Rangimarie -translation "My peaceful place"

    Look forward to hearing from you ,
    Kind regards,
