  • Description


    I live in these beautiful steep hills in the solar-powered house I built about 30 years ago. The land is shared with nearby neighbours and my lover/friend and her 3 children. My teenage son is here most weekends and school holidays. There is always a garden with some veggies and a semi-wild and semi-productive fruit orchard. I run a bamboo flute making business (see windelfflutes.com ) from my home here so musicians are always welcome. Excellent internet access available. This place is definitely rustic and rural with outdoor compost toilet and showers. A subtropical climate .. beautiful winter days and nights, can get a bit warm in summer. If you love your comforts, you had best look elsewhere. If you like to explore the path less travelled and love nature and steep hills, this could be a place for you.

    Visitors can share in the simple lifestyle up here . May learn some building and renovation skills. You can make yourself a bamboo flute if you are interested. We are big on honest, open communication and from many years as a host on the wwoofing network, I have come to really enjoy the cultural exchange that comes from spending time with overseas visitors.
