Coastal rural property adjacent to stunning Cable Bay estuary overlooking Pepin Island, 23 km north of Nelson city.

Welcoming, hand-made earth home where Rachel lives. Separate self contained studio for guests and helpers with phone and wifi with Own bathroom, composting toiled and kitchen. Limited cell phone reception in the area but plenty of Wifi.

Large organic, sunny vegetable garden and orchard. Native bush covering most of the land which is a mixture of spectacular mature native trees and vigorous regenerating bush. Planting of young trees and some weed control is leading to successful regeneration of endemic vegetation. Walking tracks are being constructed to access more remote parts of this beautiful property. Kayaking in the estuary and scenic walks and biking on the doorstep.
18 minutes drive from Nelson city itself.

Projects/ work includes maintenance and development of vegetable garden, composting, weed-eating/brush cutting, chain sawing of winter firewood, winter tree planting, weed control in native bush and development of further walking tracks. Possibility of involvement in local trapping programme to enhance local conservation projects.

Look forward to welcoming you to Delaware Bay!
