About your host, Sarah

Sarah's Photo


Hi. We moved to NZ from UK in 1997. David, my husband, is from New Zealand, and we met in Denmark where we lived for several years in the 80's. We have two grown up children and three grandchildren who we see often. We are family focused, we love our home and the West Coast, but also enjoy exploring the country in our caravan and the occasional overseas holiday. We like to grow vegetables and some fruit - although sometimes we are not that successful. We keep chickens, who provide all our fresh eggs, and we usually have some sheep who do a great job of mowing the lawns in our back paddocks. We are keen DIY-ers who love to up-cycle, mend and re-purpose. We look forward to welcoming you to our place.
