My place is close to Motupippi Hill walkways and cycle tracks., the beach, family-friendly activities.. You’ll love my place because of the comfy bed, the neighbourhood, the outdoors space, the ambiance, the light.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and big groups.
We are on a quiet rural road although close to town and the end of our short road are walking and cycle tracks. husband and I live upstairs and guests will have all of the downstairs .Our property has a variety of native trees which go right to the river.You will be woken up by birdsong and lately we have had Quail wandering around,one of the reasons ,including cyclists, walkers and lately children on bikes, for the 20k limit on our road. Please take extreme care.
Guest may have access to the backyard only,with off limit areas.This is for privacy and safety reasons.We are on a sloped section and some of our paths are quite narrow so we would prefer that people were not wandering around. These areas will be marked private.there is access to the river but we prefer that people ask before going down there as it is tidal and can sometimes get very slippery. We want no accidents.
Interaction with guests
There is usually someone around but will provide my Cellphone no. in case
Other things to note
Large or long vehicles will have a problem turning around as it is a very narrow road. I do not have a full kitchen e.g cook hob inside.I do however have a b.b.q that should meet all of your cooking requirements,microwave,electric frypan,jug and toaster. I provide breakfast which includes : a selection of cereals, tea, coffee, Milo and plunger coffee.In the fridge is: a large bowl of fruit, a bowl of yoghurt, a jug of juice,butter and milk.I also provide a loaf of bread from our home breadmaker and a selection of spreads.These are replenished every day. I also supply clean towels,tidy beds ,clean the bathroom and mop the floor every second day. I also take rubbish.We recycle and there is a bin outside, we also collect food scraps for a local pig farmer,no citrus ,spicy food or onion peels,this is the white bin outside.We have two (at this stage ) guests of whom you should be made aware of,our lovely native weka .Although they look and probably are to some cute ,the jolly things are thieves of the highest order.I strongly advise people not to leave anything unattended even for a minute outside,this includes food.They can get to bench height even though they are flightless.If something takes their fancy or even if it doesn't they will come inside and wreak havoc,so watch that the doors are shut if you are not in a room.
