Who we are

  1. We are an English couple who grew up in Devon and Dorset. I'm Jon 47 working in tertiary education. A keen environmental activist, I enjoy outdoor life here - surf beaches are 30 mins away and ski slopes and mountains 3 hours. Tanya, my partner, is an ICU nurse working at the local hospital. Our lifestyle ensures we get to spend lots of time with our three childen Hattie 12, George 7 and Ella 3. We spent 1 year in Cyprus, 4 years living in Australia and now the past 6 years here in NZ. Our first exchange to two houses in France last year proved alot of fun!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is situated 300 metres up in the Kaimais which are a small mountain range (up to 700 metres) running some 180 kms up the east side of North Island. It's located in old growth park-like forest. We are completely private but do have a few friendly 'lifestyler' neighbours. Grounds and house are very child friendly with numerous outdoor play facilities. We've a collection of watersports equipment that can be used. Impressive bush walks are all around, and it's an easy 15 - 20 minute drive to Tauranga (pop 120,000) with its fantastic beaches and 2,300 hours of sunshine a year! Rotorua and visitor attractions abound is 50 minutes and the North Island ski resorts 3 hours.
