  • Description


    I live in the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula with my lovely dog Flojo. I have traveled a lot, living many years around the world so I enjoy meeting people from other cultures. I'm pretty cruisy and work can be flexible around weather and waves! My house has a big garden and is not far from a beautiful beach with good surfing. If you'd like to learn to surf, I could help. There are also some hidden gem beaches and bush walks in the area.
