    Hello, we are a small farming family suituated on the coast of the wairarapa, our house is less than 400 meters from our private beach. We have one child who is not far of turning one. He is such a beautiful boy who sleeps all night and plays all day. my partner works on the station everyday. And I am at home with our son. We live in a small coastal settlement however not far from us approx 15 minutes is one of New Zealand’s top 10 beaches, with amazing views, walks and a incredible light house you can walk right up too. It also have 2 country pubs near, one general store and the local camp ground. Our community are very loving and welcoming.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live on a sheep and beef working station, with amazing views with horses we could ride on the farm, we are big deer and pig hunters would be a good thing to do for someone who has never seen it before. The sea right on our back yard- fishing, surfing, diving we can also take out JetSki for a ride out sea. Coming here would be so much fun and a really good cultural exchange where we live is very unique we often get a lot of people say to us they wished they got to live here or have your own private beach!
