Site Foundation

2 options. 1 is on the edge of the bush, there is already a toilet, water, power, internet and a wee cabin you could add to but no driveway to the cabin. The other is a bit more private with a driveway and flat gravel pad. There is a shed up there we might need for storage, but can be discussed. It had power and internet. The roof would be fine for water collection if you have a tank and room for composting or long drop toilet.

Driveway Foundation

Gravel driveway. No drive way to the bush cabin area (just over paddock)


Easy parking to top space as gravel. Bush cabin may need to walk over from the car park in winter over the paddock (only 10-20m). Should be fine to drive up to in summer.

Hello lovely people! We are the kaitiaki of 15 acre's of native bush, paddock and (evolving) forest garden. We have been slowly (emphasis on slowly) creating a wee paradise to live sustainably on with our 2 kids aged 6 and 8. We love the idea of shared living. Caring for this amount of land can be time consuming for just us busy parents and we would love to be able to share a food garden, share the load and share our space with someone on the same wavelength. The form made me put a price for rent, but we would be happy to discuss "free" rent (just pay for amenities) in exchange for some of your precious time. The vision is to have some help with daily life, the odd bit of childcare, gardening and projects to imrove the space if you are keen on that. Basically we are wanting to create a wee village to help each other out and live in generosity the way I believe we were meant to live! (Sorry we need to take some more photos as they are all out dated, but you can see the very top of the cabin in the distance of the main house photo. More photos coming!)
