I live by myself in the countryside and have a small organic orchard surrounded by native forest in a beautiful part of New Zealand. I enjoy having people to stay, especially when they can help me in my garden.
I am a very experienced English language teacher, and I'm happy to help visitors who don't have English as a first language. I live near a beautiful beach and enjoy swimming there. I also have a lot of friends to share with my guests.
I look after my orchard and vegetable garden organically. It is good to have help e.g. collecting seaweed, fertilising trees, pruning, weeding, cutting firewood, small repairs in the house.
I have a spare bedroom in my house, comfortable bed, wiFi available.
Visitors with a car have many opportunities to visit amazing places around the Coromandel Peninsula. Not much local public transport, but there are buses to and from Auckland city.
