Tim and myself have lived in the Kohatu area since 2016. Tim was brought up in the surrounding area of Tadmor/Tapawera which is only about 10 minutes away. We have a daughter who is now living in Nelson City. We also have a Digger Hire business which we operate from home 7 days a week. Tim works fulltime during the week and I work from home looking after the Digger Hire business and now the AirBnB also. We love spending time with our 2 dogs and taking them to the river in summer for swims. We enjoy the peace and quiet and the rural views the area has to offer.
