  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 9 living on a 5 acre cozy lifestyle block in Northland, 15 minutes from Kerikeri. We have 2 cows, 2 goats, 2 sheep, chickens, ducks, 2 dogs and a cat. Our children living at home range in age from 25 to 11.
    I (Sue) run a home-based childcare group for children under 5 on Fridays; the rest of the week I am studying hard as I have just started a 3-year degree via distance learning. This means the house is generally quiet during the day from Monday to Thursday, and it helps if you don’t need to be entertained too much during that time!
    We are a friendly bunch and love meeting and hosting people from other parts of the world.

    Over the past year some of the family have gone through rather a revolution with eating habits. We currently have 3-4 people gluten free, 2 people vegan/whole food plant based and 1 semi-vegetarian. We are working towards providing fewer meat based meals, and increasing use of fruit, vegetables and other whole foods.

    Accommodation

    We have partitioned off an area in what used to be the rumpus room to use as a bedroom. There is access either from inside the house, or direct from the driveway.

    What else ...

    We're a 20 minute drive from the beautiful Bay of Islands, 10 minutes from Ngawha hot springs and 10 minutes from a cycle/walking trail. There are also waterfalls and swimming holes not far away. It's handy if you have your own transport, but if not, we can help you get out and about to check out the local sights.
