Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy everyday life. Everything here is slow (except the internet!!). You must be animal-friendly as my three cats enjoy the indoor/outdoor flow, and I sometimes have my son's dog here. You are welcome to participate in daily animal-feeding routine (chickens, donkeys, horse), you just have to let me know!
Please note that I do work full time, which means I may not be home when you get here. However, I will leave accurate instructions for your arrival.

The space
You can expect a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere at Kip n Kai. Guests I've had stay have only good comments to make about the location and environment.
I am renovating an old house as and when I have time/money. The sleepout is now complete and ready for you to stay in. This is a basic, private room separate from the main house where you'll need to go for the bathroom, toilet, kitchen etc.
Everything is clean and tidy for you, but please be mindful that I do have tools and materials stored neatly inside the house, so I can continue with renovations when I am able to.
I am very easy going and welcome you to enjoy your stay as if you were in your own home.

Guest access
Choice of completely separate 'sleepout' or private bedroom in the house, shared use of lounge, kitchen/dining, bathroom and toilet. Plenty of parking.

Other things to note
Guests are offered the choice of catering for themselves, or I'm happy to provide an evening meal for an added cost. Breakfast is included in the pricing. Please be aware that I don't eat meat, so evening meals provided by me will be meat-free.

Location

Exact location provided after booking.

Pukeatua, Waikato, New Zealand

The property sits off the road and we're surrounded by farmland/animals. There are plenty of walking and cycling tracks and we're not too far from main tourist spots:- Hobbiton, Te Waihou Walkway, Waitomo Caves, Lake Karapiro etc.

This is home for a variety of animals I have rescued, call it their 'forever home' if you like! I offer space in my home from anyone who wants to get away from the rat race of city life, to overseas tourists who would like a taste of real Kiwi life. I am currently renovating and sometimes things aren't as they should be and you may need to improvise - call it spontaneous adventure!! Originally from England I have lived in NZ for most of my life. I have travelled around Europe (my favourite country is Greece!), America (New York and Florida), New Caledonia, Fiji, Japan, Singapore - and love to learn about other cultures - particularly food and drink! My life motto is: Be kind. Always.

During your stay
I aim to meet guests as soon as practical as some arrive before I am home from work. If not here in person to greet, I leave some instructions out, or advise via Air BnB messaging. I am available when needed, and offer guests the choice of chilling out on their own, or joining me in the main house.
