This boutique hotel offers a new owner the opportunity to combine a healthy and diverse lifestyle with an interesting and profitable business which naturally scales down during winter, allowing for a holiday.

Each of the five beautifully appointed suites has been subtly themed, providing individual charm as well as comfort. In the heart of the lodge is a spacious, recently renovated farmhouse kitchen enjoying garden and orchard views. A large woodburner with wetback heats the water for a series of radiators around the house, ensuring year-round warmth.

Organically managed, the four-hectare property provides the ability to live from the land with honey, fruit trees, berry patches, vegetable gardens, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle and horses. The small Chardonnay vineyard with a careful selection of clones produces a succulent house wine thoroughly enjoyed by guests from all around the world.

A range of useful ancillary sheds and buildings offers space for projects, hobbies, storage and accommodation for staff. Other facilities on the property include a petanque court, croquet lawn and small gymnasium overlooking the swimming pool.

This extraordinarily diverse and unique lifestyle is ideally located on State Highway One, less than a five-minute drive from central Blenheim and 15 minutes from numerous winery cellar doors, restaurants and the airport.

Offers from $2,500,000 plus GST (if any)

Hi neighbours - repairs to Tauranga's iconic Mauao walking track is predicted to cost $5.2 million, but locals say $60,000 and some shovels is all they need to fix it.

The public have expressed community-led ideas to repair the Mauao track, and the need for the council to just "keep it simple".

Volunteers could simply dig into the slope of the track to allow access around the damaged area, using local builders to remove "less than a truck full of dirt" to allow the track to reopen.

Is repairing Mauao a community job? Would you get involved?

Hi neighbours - at 9am the day election nominations closed, 19-year-old barber Stacey Rose threw his hat into the ring and by 2pm, he was a councillor.

He said he is ready to seize the opportunity and be an example that youth can make great councillors. He believes in representing young people in the region who feel like they haven't been represented before.

Do you think he's got what it takes to respond to issues we are facing as communities? Are younger councillors the way of the future?
