  • Description

    Description

    Our home is on a half acre with an orchard of fruit trees: apples, feijoas, peaches, pears, citrus, guavas and a large kitchen garden. As IT professionals and musicians, we need help gardening, landscaping, housekeeping, minor building or maintenance (i.e. painting).

    Guest accommodation is a cozy caravan suitable for one or two with kitchenette and outhouse.

    Our property is FULLY NON-SMOKING. This is non-negotiable.

    We are omnivores, but are happy to accommodate vegetarian/vegan diets.

    We aren't a farm, this is more a homestay. Our lives are crazy busy, and we appreciate guests who are looking for a more self-contained, independent stay. Having your own vehicle is a big plus as we are in a remote area. If you don't have your own transport, be prepared to enjoy a lot of quiet, restful time in the peace and quiet of Ti Point. Meals are an informal affair at best, with folks helping themselves to whatever is at hand. We appreciate any help offered on dinner preparation and cooking, as often this falls by the wayside.

    We provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea and coffee in return for five hours a day of your time, 5 days a week.

    Free-time activities in our area include swimming, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking and biking. We live in a remote area and having your own form of transport is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. However, we can help with transport to/from Warkworth, but your free-time options will be limited.
