Our property is reasonably small and is quiet and private with a large garden. It's not fancy but a comfortable, warm and welcoming haven where you can be whomever you want to be without criticism or control. It is definitely not a hostel-like environment. In fact my sons and I prefer that you become part of the family during your stay. We enjoy visitors especially those who are truly open to and keen to venture into unconventional lifestyles, the curious and interesting, those looking to open their minds, to challenge their thinking and those who enjoy a tension free environment
We are close to a great beach - Muriwai - and the Woodhill forest park, plus it is not far to Auckland city.We have always have work to do and welcome input from others. Mostly it is gardening (weather dependent!) and some general property maintenance but itís not difficult work especially if you like making things grow. We have travelled widely and always like to hear about what others are doing and thinking. I know NZ very well and can provide lots of tips and advice about traveling in New Zealand. We look forward to having you share what we have in return for some assistance with making our home and land somewhere special and preserving it for the future. Please note: We really like the morning. That means breakfast is around 7-7.30am so if you are someone who rises mid-day then please be prepared to adapt or you may miss out. In addition we prefer to host people prepared to fully engage with us so if you get your kicks from hours in front of a screen you may find us unresponsive. On the flip side I can guarantee to those who come here that we will contribute at least as much as you to the enjoyment of your time with us. We are a smoke Ėfree environment but eat and drink well.
We have also used the wwoofer system so for references log in to wwoofer host number 40174
PS: We have accommodation available for rent for anyone looking for somewhere more permanent
