UPDATE: HOUSESITTERS WANTED FEB 19TH TO 29TH!!! Though you are welcome to stay on longer 😁
Hi we are a busy wee family of 3! Living on 3 acres of land tucked into the bush on the Tutukaka coast.
Our family consists of a Naturopath / medical herbalist and trained yoga teacher , 2 beautiful children 8 and 15, 2 snuggly cats & a goofy Japanese spitz, Zari, a cav king charles spaniel Saphie, 3 chooks and 4 miniature horses :-D
We have a 3 bedroom home, still to have some painting, an interior compost loo, 2 story cabin and old caravan
And in summer a 7mtr above ground swimming pool, which gets alot of use.
An 8 metre diameter Tipi is yet to be erected on the land, from which Yoga and workshops will eventually be taught!
We are pretty relaxed, like to laugh so workawayers with sense of humors is a must!!!
We eat some vegetarian meals but eat meat and dairy, happy for vegetarians and vegans to create their own meals.
Also internet is limited and hugely expensive as it is rural wireless. We would prefer you use your own phone data if possible please. 😁🙏

There is much to be done here, at the moment mainly clearing gorse, some painting and building projects, but there is always house work, to be done and we would love to create a food forest and vegetable garden, so any landscaping or permaculture guidance also very welcome!!!
