It was an amazing and memorable stay. You must take a dip in the stream or outdoor shower. Beautiful energy and beautiful people.

We cannot recommend Mirjam and Rudolf's home enough. In many ways, staying at their home has been the highlight of our trip. We had our own private and spacious house right on the river. You fall asleep to the sound of the forest and the rushing river and the stars are spectacular. From here we had a great base to explore the Coromandel. Mirjam and Rudolf's hospitality extended far beyond simply providing a neat and tidy place to spend the night. They seem committed to making sure their guests leave refreshed and peaceful! Every morning we had such a delicious breakfast and wonderful conversation that spanned gardening, philosophy and health. If you're looking for a place to recharge and reconnect to the world around you look no further than Mirjam's and Rudolf's :)

Mirjam and Rudolph's place is special, not only for the location (secluded, a perfect retreat to find peace and relaxation, yet only minutes from the most popular beaches), but even more for the atmosphere and energy that pervades the place. Mirjam and Rudolph have been superb hosts, very approachable, helpful, accommodating, interesting... I will always remember breakfast time :) such fulfilling conversation! Cherry on the cake: there is a stream just behind the property with a meditation rock The kitchen and shower outside are a precious addition as you are self sufficient. The property is totally eco-friendly. I would highly recommend!

Mirjam and Rudolf have an idyllic spot in the hills that feels totally away from it all. We were treated like old friends - they went out of their way to make us comfortable, providing delicious breakfasts, great advice on the area, as well as getting out their tools to help the children polish up the paua shells they'd found on the beach. The room was spacious with huge windows looking out over the NZ bush and the outdoor kitchen and bathroom were fabulous. Thank you so much for a wonderful few days.

Our first place to stay in New Zealand and we could not have chose better! After a long and tricky drive in the dark and rain we were welcomed with open arms. Rudolf and Mirjam are very genuine and charming hosts, interesting and interested. We felt like we are coming to visit longtime friends. The place is very charming and somewhat eclectic. We loved every minute!

Kia Ora & Welcome!
I, Rudolf and my wife Mirjam enjoyed taking care of our pristine environment and our body, mind and soul. We experimented with growing an organic edible landscape and have built a home with energy efficiency, beauty and simplicity in mind.
We have been working in private practice as counsellors, supervisors and trainers, mainly in Christchurch, where we lived for 30 years until 2011.
We took delight in sharing the tranquility of our natural setting as a retreat for individuals and couples. Next to accommodation, we offered professional holistic counselling support and energy work from home.
We love travelling, have lived in different cultures, and deeply enjoy supporting people's well-being.
Unfortunately, my beloved wife, Mirjam Busch, just passed away in August 2017 after a fast developing illness. She still is very present here in all the designs and landscaping, even though no more in physical form.
I have decided to continue with our AirBnB hosting with the help of neighbourly friends, and would like to extend a similar warm welcome to you as the one that Mirjam was renowned for.
