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.

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.

In my early years I started and operated a Wellington business for ten years with proven financial stewardship skills that allowed me to retire early to Taupo.

Since then I have served as a Taupo District Councillor for 2 terms and became a certified Resource Management Act Commissioner adjudicating on hearings within the Taupo District with a priority for positive environmental outcomes.

My grandchildren attend Waipahihi School where I also serve on the Board of Trustees.
I’m a dedicated volunteer and a fully qualified Cycle Skills instructor. I teach young school children throughout the district, including Turangi, Kuratau and Mangakino on how to ride bicycles and then when they are older on how to be safe while riding on our roads.
My main priorities are: Tackling climate change

Safeguarding and future proofing our fresh water supply, rivers, lakes, and catchments as well as supporting land owners in their efforts to improve water quality.

Supporting the predator free 2050 initiative and the protection of regional native fauna and biodiversity.

Building a resilient regional eco-friendly economy by operating fiscally sound and socially responsible budgets.

Minimising non-recyclable plastics with improved waste management along with increased awareness of commercial responsibility.

Encouraging new technology for recycling used-tyres into new roading infrastructure.

Upgrading infrastructure for increased usage of electric and hydrogen powered vehicles, and safe cycling amenities for recreation and commuting.

Lastly, I’m seeking your endorsement to allow me to serve as your Regional Councillor and become part of the solutions by contributing and influencing the future in a positive and sustainable way.
