We are both from the UK and love life in NZ. This area is perfect for us being in the hills as well as near the sea. We enjoy meeting new people but also appreciate people like their own space. Feel free to pop down and say hello if you want to. Thanks for staying in our space:)

During your stay
We live next door so any questions we are happy to help. Also very happy to let people do a load of washing if they are staying a few days. If they are here for a month then a couple of times a week washing is fine.
