My husband Manaia was born and bred in Rapaki. Rapaki is a unique Maori settlement and one of four Mares on the Banks Peninsula. We have 6 adult children between us, who are all living independently.
We live in this Beautiful Piece of Paradise with Mannie, a gorgeous full of mischief Sydney Siklie along with our 3 Alpacas, Zarah, Mila and Millie, chickens, sheep and native birds. From our home, we like to relax on one of our decks overlooking the Stunning Views of the Surrounding Hills and Harbour or take a walk on many of the nearby Tracks, or exploring our beautiful country, New Zealand, in our camper.
You may find that once you arrive here it will be hard to leave and 2 days will not be enough.
We are looking forward to sharing our home and Surroundings with our guests. For us, the Essentials of Life is: Someone to Love, Something to do and Something to look forward to
