  • Description


    Hi. We're Diane, Jim and Grant, and at the beginning of 2020 we were lucky enough to purchase just over five hectares (12 acres) of land on the Pahi Peninsula, at the northern end of Northland's enormous Kaipara Harbour. It's a beautiful property, with nearly half the land in native bush, right on the harbour's edge.

    Diane and Jim have lived in Northland for many years; Grant has just arrived back in NZ after way too long living in Sydney. We're making this a home for two families (and a lot of friends!) Pahi is a great place to visit while exploring Northland, just two hours from Auckland.

    As mentioned earlier, we've only been on this property for a few months, so this is a great chance to see what harbour lifestyle living is like right at the beginning. We have already started a native tree propagation programme, which would be of particular interest if you are keen on ecology; our native bush has an invasive weed problem which we are tackling in a big way and it's very rewarding to see the results after even a day's work.

    We're all laid back and happy to share the kiwi lifestyle if you are visiting NZ, or even if you're local and checking out Northland.

  • Aide


    We have big visions for this beautiful place, which include sharing it with family and friends, from around New Zealand and the world. (That includes friends we haven't yet met!)

    If you are interested in helping us with tasks like plant propagation, bush planting, weed removal, fence repairs and general tidying, we'd love to have you stay.

    Although no specific work experience is required, most of the chores we are doing is physical, and outdoor, so it would help if you were fit, and had work clothes (boots are handy.)

  • Hébergement


    We have two spare bedrooms - one with a queen sized bed, and one with two singles which can be combined to a double. The house is quirky, 1970s architect designed, and has a swimming pool - and a sunken conversation pit with a fireplace!

    Mostly there will be just Grant at the house - Jim and Diane might be here if you are staying during a weekend.

    We'll have food available for you to help yourself to breakfast and lunch, and we'll cook dinner to share in the evening.

    Autres infos...

    Pahi is not close to public transport, so you'll definitely need your own vehicle. We're only five minutes from Paparoa, which has a general store, pub, petrol station and a couple of cafes - and there's a small farmers' market on Saturday.

    Swimming is excellent - specialy now it's getting warm.
