Where you’ll be

Auckland, New Zealand

Though close to the city, this area is is rural and surrounded by the sea, native forest, hills and escarpments reminiscent of the Marlborough Sounds and Coromandal. We access magnificent hiking trails that will take one up the wild west coast where there is no road access. Go for a short walk around the bay or walk all day through New Zealand Native forests, cross mountain streams and swim under waterfalls.
Or just chill in this very cool space.

Self employed creative designer. Health and well being has been pre-requisite through lifestyle choices which has kept me fit and enthusiastic about life. Outdoors enviromentalist with keen love hiking, sailing, mountain biking and wilderness living. Music yoga and meditation a constant. I've designed and built my own homes using raw logs we horse logged from sustainable forests. A well travelled Kiwi who for 25 years lived and worked in several countries including, California USA, London UK, Goa India, Singapore, Sydney and Queensland Australia. We live close enough to downtown Auckland City to enjoy a great concert, cosy club or fine dining yet live in a rural coastal wilderness location where we can fish and gather seafood. Technology is important to me so we are fully connected to the world wide web and keep up with current developments. We enjoy hosting people with a wide range of interests and can discuss such or leave guests to enjoy complete solititude. Do good and do what makes your heart sing.
