I'm a young pensioner living on 4 acres of land, next to 25 acres of covenanted native bush, that I am re-wilding and creating some diodiversity for animals, insects and birds to find a safe home. There is a lot of gardening work but also small building projects too. I grow my own veg, make my own sourdough bread and live quite simply. Mangawhai is a vibrant community with a wonderful coastline of surf beaches, great Farmers Markets, Community Garden and walks in the Brynderwyns. I am vegetarian but don't mind a bit of meat being cooked if you provide it yourself. The accommodation is separate from the house (no bathroom, that's in the house) with a small cooking area for breakfast and snacks that you can prepare yourself but I envisage us eating our main meal together which I'm happy to cook but love learning new recipes too

I'm a typical kiwi but have traveled extensively, I am always delighted to meet people from different cultures. I work once a week at the local Community Gardens where you can meet some colourful characters and see how awesome the garden is and the community support they provide. I also sing once a week with a small group of people
Ecological garden help, establishing diodiversity, small building projects (build an outside composting toilet), mow lawns, always house work to do on a rainy day etc

I speak fluent English and German, a few words of French and 2 sentences in Japanese but I am always open to learning more and have often had to speak slowly in English so people can understand me. I know how difficult it is to understand when native speakers talk so fast
Separate Hobbit Hut with kitchenette and small table, large outside private deck area, very cosy.

I have unlimited broadband but unfortunately the speeds aren't super fast but good enough to watch You Tube clips and movies etc. The WiFi doesn't reach your room, only phone data but you're welcome to use the broadband in the house.
