Interaction with guests
We live in a cottage across the court yard from your apartment. We provide detailed written information about the operation of appliances and technology. You have your own keys and a separate entrance - so you can come and go and be completely independent, if that is your wish. if you want to 'meet the locals' we are equally happy to share coffee and to talk about what there is to see and do nearby.

Ally & Chris - thank you for your warm review. We would recommend this cheerful young couple to other hosts. They were considerate, left our apartment sparkling, showed a genuine interest in our organic growing and are good company. We welcome them back anytime.

Thank you so much for your kind feedback - we have enjoyed hosting you, and the opportunity to meet someone from the french/Swiss border and to learn a little of a way of life far from our own

About the neighbourhood
This is rural New Zealand at its best - a place to catch your breath and relax into country life. Kiwitea is just 15 minutes to a pretty market town, 30 minutes to a provincial city. The vistas are of rolling pastures grazed by sheep and cattle. The skies are big and deciduous trees provide seasonal colour contrast to lush grasses. You can chill on a big sofa, stream something on wifi and let the world go by OR - bring walking shoes, water bottle and a day pack for hiking; your bike for both tarmac and gravel road circuits. It's a popular area to explore on a harley, or in either vintage or sports cars.
Getting around
You are best to self drive in this area.
