We are an small orchard (apples, pears, feijoa, apricot, avocado and peach to name a few), many chickens and ducks, and a few sheep. The property has been rather neglected prior to us moving here and we are trying to make improvements so that trees and animals have a better future. We have two medium sized dogs who love to meet new people, and two cats.

We are very close to the Kopu-Paeroa Hauraki Cycle Trail. Nearby is the Matatoki Cheese Barn. On the fringe of the Coromandel Peninsula we are well situated as a base for people who want to do day trips both north around the Peninsula, East to Whangamata and South to Paeroa, Waihi, Katikati and Tauranga. It is just over an hour to Auckland, Hamilton or a bit further to Mount Maunganui.

If you have any experience with orchards, poultry or just happy to get your hands dirty we would love to hear from you. We prefer non-smoking. Social drinking ok.

In return we can offer you
* a place to park your camper or sleeper van with or without power, or alternatively ask us about sleeping in one of our VW (type 3) Campers.
* an evening meal everyday (Gluten free/Vegetarian diets not catered for currently sorry). Breakfast is also an option (cereals and/or toast) but lunch is your responsibility.
* friendly hosts who are happy to share what knowledge we have gathered and who hope to learn from others.
