Welcome to our little piece of paradise!

Our ideal helper(s) likes helping in the veggie garden and has DIY skills. Also help around the house is appreciated.

Pick up or drop off available from Kawakawa / Opua / Paihia on most days.

We are located at Ruapekapeka (Towai), 35 minutes drive north of Whangarei, 20 Mins South of Kawakawa, 30 mins Opua, 35 mins Paihia, 40 mins Kerikeri. Our property is private and peaceful. We are surrounded by native bush and birdsong. There are no nearby neighbours.

There is an historical site nearby (Ruapekapeka Pa), and some nice bush walks.

Our property is 22ha (55acres) of grazing (beef cattle) and native bush. There is a small stream with deep pools for a hot day. We have an abundance of specimen native trees here including Kauri, Puriri, Rimu, Totara, Rewarewa and many more... We even have glow worms!! Kawakawa is our closest small town.

Pick up or drop off available from Opua / Paihia on most days.

We are a family of four, Mark (UK), Maggie (China), Tristan (6), Rosina (3 1/2)

We don't have fixed hours though approx. 4hrs per day is usual. The more effort you put in, the more you will get out of your stay with us.

We offer a comfortable room with home cooked meals and wifi.

Our leisure time involves trips to town, the beach, sailing and fishing.

How to Get Here

If you have your own transport, we are easy to find 5km from the main SH1 between Whangarei and Kawakawa. Mana Bus or Intercity will drop you at the end of the road (SH1 Towai petrol station or Towai Hotel), we'll pick you up from there.

Please note we are 100% SMOKE FREE! This means we do not host smokers.

Look foward to meeting you. Kia Ora Mark & Maggie
