Our 1920's revival home is a 10min drive from Bason Botanic Garden, Bushy Park Sanctuary, Kai Iwi beach, and city dining and nightlife. Awake refreshed in the comfy beds. Enjoy breakfast prepared for you with home made preserves, and take your coffee in the library or the country garden filled with birds, fresh vegetables and flowers. Come if you are a couple, solo traveler, or a group of 3-4. A queen bed room and a King Single room with a bed which can accommodate 1 or 2.
The 1920's weatherboard house has been faithfully restored and sits in a sheltered securely fenced yard filled with gardens of native, sub-tropical and exotic plants and trees. Surrounded by pastoral land home to poultry, sheep, horses and cattle you will enjoy the surroundings without the labour. Native Tui, Bell Bird and Wood Pigeon, feed in the giant tree lupins year round, while you watch from the dining room, enjoying your hot or cold breakfast.

I am a semi-retired Scientific Instrument specialist. I live with my wife Vickie, a Chemistry Teacher, on a 2ha lifestyle property 10 minutes drive from downtown with chickens, sheep, a dressage horse (Delphi) and an old tortoise-shell cat (Pieface). I keep busy volunteering for the City Mission and working as an Aviary Caretaker for the District Council. We have a large garden with semi-tropical fruits, herbs, vegetables and flowers and try to grow what we eat.
