We live on a working farm surrounded by native forest with the beautiful Wakamarina river running through it.

About your host, Pete




My background has been in landscape for many, many years so I really look forward to looking after this great place. Over the last 60 years some very talented plants' people have added their touches so there is a great range of native and exotic trees on the property and the surrounding valley.

I spent a lot of time wandering around South Island rivers as a kid so I guess its no surprise that I ended up here.

My partner is a chef so we get spoiled and some of our guests do too. With so many mussel farms nearby you can't help but get to try them in everyone's favorite recipe.

Being super quiet here in winter means devouring lots of books and enjoy outdoor fires and that beats working!

Still look forward to finding an old sound's launch and tinkering on her and putting around the sounds.
