  • Description


    Hi! We have a 5ha lifestyle block where the living is pretty easy. Things grow well, and we're close to mountains, rivers, walks, and the coast when it's time to take a break.
    We are always keen to have people come to stay in return for whatever needs doing on our farmlet. It might be harvesting hazelnuts, weeding, planting, or pruning olive trees depending on the time of the year.
    There are three of us here, with one cat, and some pet alpacas.
    We promise to feed you well, give you a good night's sleep, and supply wifi.
    We have a spa pool, kayaks, and also bikes you can use. We enjoy nature, good food, and one of us, in particular, loves board games. :)
    Get in touch if you want to come and stay in one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand.
