Our home

Paul and i have lived with our 4 children now all grown in this property for 26 years. It has raised a family and welcomes others to share in it, as it is the most serene rural setting with glorious views and only a 10 minute drive to one of NZ's top beach resorts and a shopping mall. Our home is well lived in and faces direct north to maximize the sun from the early morning to sunsets in the evening. We have developed the gardens over the years which have been photographed for top magazines, e.g. NZ House and Garden and The NZ Gardener and many paper articles. There are interesting places to stop in the garden like the little stable now turned into a reading room and the potting shed with a couch enclosed simply to rest in. For 4 days every 2 years it is open for the Garden and Art Festival and celebrating beautiful family weddings are memories forever. Evenings are spent relaxing in the spa pool with winter outdoor fires and summer spent in the pool.
This is an extremely peaceful, relaxing property that people tell us they never want to leave from.

Who we are

  1. Paul and I have four fabulous children, two boxer dogs and a cat. We have over the past 30 years run an extremely successful beekeeping business. We export raw manuka honey around the world and are really proud of what we have achieved over the years. The UK is one of our leading markets. The best way to get to know us a little better is to check out our web site and Facebook page. We are very down to earth, love family and friends sharing great food and wine. The arts are a passion of mine and Paul is a cigar aficionado!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our 2 acre rural property up in the Papamoa Hills is surrounded by farmland with mountain and horse riding tracks on our boundary. 2kms up the road is a lovely rural golf course with undoubtedly the best views in the world. A 10 minute drive takes you to one of NZ best beaches and a shopping centre for all your requirements, including dining and bars. As this area is a tourist spot there are many outdoor adventures to be had and we are only a 45 minute drive from the famous thermal pools in Rotorua. A 25 minute dive takes you into Tauranga which is one of NZ leading cities with plenty of great dining and bars.
Mt Maunganui is 20 minutes away which is one of NZ major beach resorts.
One of our sons and his wife live in a flat on the property happily keeping up any maintenance when we are away.
