I have lived in Kakahi for 5 years. After meeting the lovely Mike, I left my corporate Auckland job, sold my house in the hills and embraced a life of peace and quiet in the beautiful countryside. I love it! I spend my time in my large gardens, making improvements to Mike's once bachelor pad, sewing, and looking after my lovely grandchildren, Konna and Evie The house we have just listed is the one time homestead of Mike's grandparents, and the house he grew up in, so it has very special meaning to us. We have worked hard to breathe new life into the house and maintain it's unique feel. The house seems to come alive when there are people in it! Mike and I are both well traveled and enjoy meeting travelers. We have a simple life philosophy and are very much into sustainable living. We try to maintain a small footprint on the earth and your assistance in this is hugely appreciated. Be aware that once you have visited Kakahi, you will want to come back! The tranquility and sleepiness gets into your being! We look forward to seeing you soon.
