  • Description


    Kia Ora travellers!! Welcome to NZ! My 3year old daughter, Lilah and I would love to have you come stay, play & share travel stories. We live with Snitz the cat & Snoop the dog in the beautiful Tinui countryside. We have a huge established garden with a pond, Tennis court and about 3000acres out the back for you to explore. You will need your own vehicle as Rahui is about 45 minutes drive east of Masterton. There are logging trucks on the road in business hours, best be careful all of the time tho. It may feel remote as we are 4ks up a gravel road. Stunning Castlepoint beach is only about 20mins away, a must for travellers.
    I run an ebiking business- and have a sweet online rental also. I love to ride horses and surf, so you will be welcome to join me if I am going out. There is a really cool hut in the bush with amazing views if you wanted to have a night up there. I play tennis every Thursday in the village and you would be welcome to join in the fun. Heaps to do!

    Rahui is a large working sheep and beef farm. We can take a trip out and have a look to see some on the workers and dogs in action. There may be sheep work in the yards, or shearing time thats worth a look. I have travelled through UK and Europe and Asia so always keen to share travel stories. Take the ebikes for a spin!
