Location

Marsden, West Coast, New Zealand

Shantytown is 2 minutes drive from our place. Paroa is about 5 minutes drive from our place where there is a local pub serving evening meals and a dairy for essentials or perhaps an ice cream or milk shake. Paroa is also where you can pick up the Wilderness cycle trail. A little further along the road heading North there is a combined dairy and fish and chip shop, (Four J's) - a great option for a west coast sunny evening to watch the sunset at the beach, eating fish and chips out of the newspaper :) More places to dine can be found in Greymouth which is about a 12 to 15 minutes drive from our place

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 visit 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, and re purpose. We look forward to welcoming you to our place.

During your stay
The beauty of Te Pahika is that it is self contained, secluded and private, therefore we will not be disturbing you during your stay.
If you do need anything or if you would like some advice or to ask a question please message or call us initially as David is a shift worker and is sometimes asleep during the day
On occasions you may see us attending the sheep from the parking area which adjoins the field where they live next to Te Pahika
