About our home

We have a lovely home with great views across the hills and neighborhood. Based in a quiet area within easy walking distance to the town center. Or walk in the opposite direction, a mere two blocks, to the lovely Virginia Lake and feed the ducks.

We have a BBQ area and enjoy great summers, including trips to any one of the local beaches. If you are want to tour the North Island, we're a good base as we're just two and a half hours away from Wellington. (International airport is in Wellington.) Fancy a trip on a jet boat or kayaking, no worries... just up our river, fancy a walk or hike in the bush... any number can be done depending on duration, fancy good coffee and a gentle walk around art galleries and the museum... just a walk / bus ride into town, fancy a walk around a Saturday Farmer's Market... - well we have everything you want in a relaxed and laid back environment.

  3. We love exploring different parts of the world and love our food!
