Our home

We have loved living in our Barn-style home for 14 years, 5 acres of land. Has all the modern conveniences, but a homely relaxed feel. If you want to be fairly close to the city, but out enough to escape - you will have the best of both world's here.

Who we are

  1. Hi - Gary and Tina Boulton - Gary is ex-Real Estate Agent for many years, selling farms and Lifestyle blocks here on North Shore of Auckland our biggest city in New Zealand. He is enjoying retirement now, making the most of golfing and getting away as much as possible around our beautiful country in our campervan. Tina is still nursing a little bit, when she finds time after running around trying to catch up with Gary. We are enjoying our very first little baby Grand daughter who has melted our hearts. We love to travel overseas as well, having been to Africa last year which was high on our bucket list and now looking forward to planning our first trip to New York city, hoping also to cruise the Carribean and a stop over in Toronto to new friends we met travelling NZ last year. We owe them a dinner.

  2. We can be very flexible with our dates as when required we can be away in our campervan which we love to do anyway.
    Would love to assist you in anyway, to enable you to have the best holiday in little old New Zealand, whether you are holiday makers, have family to visit in Auckland, or whatever. We can help with an itinerary to showcase all what NZ has to offer.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a lovely country setting with lots of land around us. Our little neighbourhood village Waitoki has only a school, church, petrol station and lastly a lovely home cooking café called DD's. It must be good it is VERY popular with locals, passing travellers and truck drivers. The Auckland City CBD is however just 30 mins away, over the Harbour Bridge from the North Shore. The Motorway on-ramp to connect to the city is just six minutes from home. We also have within a 10-15 minute radius, the SnowPlanet - a ski slope with plenty of activities: https://snowplanet.co.nz/ We have hot thermal indoor and outdoor springs, great family fun and private pools also: http://www.parakaisprings.co.nz/
Also in that radius we are so close to pristine beaches, too numerous to mention. Hibiscus Coast and Orewa are my local stomping ground to walk my dogs every day.
