Interaction with guests
I enjoy sharing my organic breakfast as a contact point in the morning at a mutually agreed time. You may also have breakfast on your own, if you prefer.
When at home, I like to be supportive and helpful while respecting your privacy. You are welcome to make use of our additional professional services.

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.
