  • Description

    Description

    Our place is 13 acres on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges surrounded by bush, a permaculture project in progress! We have animals, gardens and a local plant medicine based business that supports community organizations bringing good change for the planet. I am a herbalist, love sailing, and the water, do massage therapy and do Plant medicine courses for people in the bush.
    The area we live is beautiful, very remote feeling for being so close to Auckland ) 45 min drive) and is walking distance to the beach and the forest.

    Tipi or little hut in the bush or you are also welcome to camp down the back. The little hut is cozy, has a double bed in it and plenty of light.
    The tipi is beautiful, close to the bush and you can light a fire in it. It has a bed base and a camping mattress in it already. Super beautiful.
