We are both New Zealanders who enjoy the simple things in life and like to enjoy and understand different cultures.
We are both Kiwis. That is, born and bred in New Zealand.
Our home is the family home where we brought up our three children who have since grown up and moved on.
We love the outdoors therefore we have bread for you to feed the fantails and quail, Food to feed the eels, and a Gazebo for you to watch the pukeko playing.
We have stayed in many Airbnbs around Europe and have enjoyed being able to understand different family living.
We offer a room which is detached from the main house which gives you privacy and room to relax. In this room is a microwave, toaster, and kettle for you to use. The toilet and bathroom is within the house and yours to use.
We also have 2 other rooms within the home. A Creme Room with double bed tea and coffee facilitates. and additional room with Twin/single beds. Our home is open plan and can be cool so be aware to wrap up if you need.
If you would like to go caving please let us know and we can offer you some torches and directions.
Our garden is a typical kiwi garden with big trees so you can sit and relax in our small courtyard listening to the birds, the cooing of the quail,
or watch the tui or wood pidgeons filling their tummies with nectar from the trees.
We have a stream running alongside which you can feed the eels if you wish.
Enjoy our home. It is a great place to be. :)
