We live on a cattle farm on Banks Peninsula, 16 minutes away from Akaroa -80kms from Christchurch. We do NOT get cell phone coverage. We are 10 minutes from beautiful Okains Bays beach and 5 minutes to the Okains Bay Maori and Colonial Museum.

We have two working dogs and Monty the cat. I am a Bach Foundation Practitioner and retired nurse.
My eldest daughter, son-in-law and 10 year old grandson,8 year old grand daughter,and 5 year old grand daughter live close by in Lavericks Bay too and we often share our workers. Another daughter lives in Darwin, Australia and the third is living and working in Christchurch.

We provide good accommodation and food in exchange for 4 hours work per day. Many helpers have stayed with us over the last twenty five years.

In February 2011 we moved here after 35 years in Lavericks Bay. We have moved into a house which is 142 years old and are working at doing it up, we now have a stunning new kitchen and dining room and five little sheds have been revamped while rejuvenating the gardens is an ongoing project.

We are both Bridge players.

Paul has been busy writing up the history of Lavericks Bay which his family settled in 1858 our grand children are 7th generation on this property.

There is ongoing outdoor work and also plenty of rainy day jobs.
We have both traveled extensively and welcome travelers to our home. This year we have visited Spain and Portugal and loved it!
