  • Description

    Description

    We have 121 hectares of land of which 100 hectares is native bush.

    We do not have tracks through the Bush but that is is in the plans. You can walk up our hill and have a view across the valleys and out to the distant coast.

    We are establishing gardens and orchards and have 1 dog (Beautiful Labrador,
    2 sheep,1 x 4 year old cow, 5 x 3 year old, 1 18 month old cow, and 9 ducks and 9 chickens with the aim of being as self sufficient as We can.

    We are off the grid so are investigating various ways of generating our own power .

    Our budget has not enabled us to invest in solar so We are unable to constantly charge devises. This is an opportunity to live without being attached to your device.

    We are located 30 minutes from the East coast beaches, Taipa, Cable Bay and Coopers Beach.

    We enjoy eating vegetables, We try to grow as much as We can. We eat meat two or three times a week. Fish once a week caught by my husband.

    We have two girls aged 14 years and 12 years.

    We are very isolated but there is some beauty in that. Peace, solitude and stunning views.

    You will hear kiwis at night and look at the night sky while you lie in our fire bath. The night sky may be revealed to you in all its beauty, with no light pollution.

    The intercity coach service drops off and picks up in Taipa (best during school holidays) and Kaitaia, We can pick you up from there.

    If driving, you are best to arrive on highway 10 into Taipa and travel to where We live in Peria from there.

    Our nearest town is Kaitaia 50 minutes drive from where We live. My husband travels into Kaitaia every day of the working week during the school term so this is a good arrival and departure option.

    You can visit the Bush Fairy Dairy which is 20 minutes drive from our property. They sell local crafts, organic food (organic ice cream that is good enough to write home about) and has internet access.

    We work six days a week making Saturday or Sunday our day of rest. If you would like an additional day off you have the option of making up the hours on other days.
