Accès des voyageurs
Guests are free to explore the 30 acre property - there are dense fern glades, stands of Kahikatea (White Pines), mossy tracks along the streams, to the tops of the hills where (apparently) you can get a view of the sea and kapiti island. Alternatively, just stroll up and back along the track, down to the river, or lie around in the pasture areas in the long grass and listen to the birds. Our property is bordered by 2 streams and its clear where the neighbours properties are (don't go there)
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are available on call in case you need any help whatsoever at the property. There are instructions on everything you need to know at the house, it's very straight forward, however, being off-grid, there may be things people are unfamiliar with and want more information on or help with.
Being solar powered, guests do need to keep an eye on the power meter, particularly with shorter sunlight hours in winter. There is a back up generator (easy, remote controlled) for overcast days, when the power is used up, or when you want to use the washing machine, dryer or vacuum cleaner.
Hot water is produced via wetback fireplace, or by gas - guests can switch easily between the 2 depending on whether they've had a fire going or not.
- smoking outside only.
- no cats, but there is a dog area for dogs - which must be kept under control, off furniture and poos from around house picked up
- Strictly 4wd access only - however, you can walk in if you're fit, it's around 1.5km
- Absolutely no hunting, trapping etc. No firearms.
- Very Limited internet access only - more can be provided upon request
