Love travelling for work and pleasure; solo, with family and friends. Explored many countries and finally settled in this stunning part of New Zealand to raise our family and share our beautiful 150 acre organic farm bordered by the beautiful and unspoilt Takou River leading to Takou Bay. We love to help people switch off from the outside world and reconnect with each other and the stunning natural environment around us.
