'We find ourselves mesmerized by the birds and unique peace and serenity that the property has to offer.'

 

We married in 1986, then lived in Western Australia for 10 years. Mark worked in open cut gold mines, I worked in administration and sold real estate. During this time we had our two children, Hannah & Ben. When we returned to New Zealand we entered the dairy industry and successfully worked to farm ownership. After 20 years of dairy farming we decided we needed to take a different direction in life. It was Akaroa that stole our hearts and we have been happily developing this secluded piece of paradise since. It boasts large areas of native bush and fresh water streams which attract many native birds. We find ourselves mesmerized by the birds and the unique peace and serenity that the property has to offer. Here amongst it all we are building a new future...
