  • Description


    Experience the rural lifestyle.. we have a keen desire to produce most of our family's food, and create a space that works with nature - we are committed to create a workable lifestyle farmlet in Waitoki, Auckland, NZ (which is about a 25min drive from Auckland City - in no traffic!)

    We are a social family of five looking to welcome people into our home to help with all the commitments that come with owning 10 acres, a dog, 3 cats, sheep, cows, chickens, an orchard, a horse arena, a couple of barns, two ponds, lots of fences, even more weeds and a never ending procession of 'good ideas'

    Please let us know what dates you are available and how long a stay you are looking for so we can see if we have availability.

    Please note we only take couples (in a relationship - not friends).
