Where you’ll be

Waikanae, Wellington, New Zealand

We have lived in this quiet neighbourhood for 10 years and have really good neighbours on each side and across the road, but because of our high hedging we only see them when exiting the property, nice to know they are there though.

Hi, Our daughter emigrated to New Zealand from the U.K. in 2001. She has since married a great kiwi bloke and we decided in 2005 to join them in this beautiful country. We are now proud Grandparents to a lovely 9 and a half year old girl and spend our time now that we are retired, helping out with the family, gardening, lawn bowls and lots of d.i.y. We love good food (Chris is a great cook) and the produce from our large veggie plot is put to good use. Eddie is a Freemason and a member of the lodge in Waikanae. Chris is a member of the Waikanae Spinners and Crafts Society and is a great knitter. Our kids have just bought a holiday home in Martinborough, one of the great wine regions of New Zealand and guess where our D.I.Y. skills will be put to use next. Perhaps the Matinborough home will be on airbnb soon.
