We have one large room with a double bed and a fold out couch (suitable for children) and one single bed room, both upstairs. The bathroom is downstairs. We charge $60 for the double bed room, and $20 for each additional person. I can cook a vegetarian dinner using the fresh vegetables from my organic garden ($20 per person extra, $5 per child under 10), considering all dietary requirements. Breakfast is of course included.

The space
We live in Paekakariki, a small, unique little character town, very close to the beach and Queen Elizabeth Park.

Guest access
Note: Use of kitchen facilities is not included. The large room has facilities to make hot drinks. Guests can use our fridge and potentially warm up something but normally not use our kitchen to cook a full meal.

Other things to note
We grow a lot of our own organic food which I use for cooking the dinner for our guests. We can also offer eggs from our chickens and honey from our own beehives for breakfast, with the home made bread. Our little dog 'Honey' is super friendly but stays downstairs.

I was born in Switzerland and moved to New Zealand when I was 22. My husband Bob and I have lived in Paekakariki for the last 20 years and love this little village. Our three daughters are grown up and the big house has now space for visitors. We both work from home, Bob for the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and I have retired from being principal of Te Ra Waldorf School ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) four year ago. I have since embarked on various new evolving ventures. Our interests lie in sustainable living on all levels (socially and environmentally). I run courses in permaculture, gardening and bread baking/cooking as part of Toru Education (see (Website hidden by Airbnb) and enjoy hosting and small scale catering with my catering business 'Home Cooking Plus'.
