About Duan and Elizabeth
We are a family who loves our planet. Both originally from New Zealand (Papakura and Bluff) we met in London where our three kids were born. After living overseas for 20 years, and seeing many amazing places and cultures we decided to return to New Zealand to create an experience for people who love to travel yet reduce their impact on the world in which we live. Or even reverse some of it. We have become far more interested and concerned in the state of our planet and have recently been studying Permaculture, Solar Power, Organic gardening and Bee-keeping - and want to implement our little knowledge and gain a lot more. This is the beginning of a new journey for us and we welcome you to come and spend time with us in this special corner of the Earth.
Duan and Elizabeth purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Duan and Elizabeth chose Collingwood
Between us we have been very lucky to travel to many amazing countries including Lebanon, Libya, Viet-Nam, Nepal, Cuba, Ethiopia, Japan and Namibia and have always been inspired by the cultures but equally the places that we have stayed at and the people we have stayed with. We have long dreamt of creating an experience that we shape based on all of these different places we have seen - and started looking for a suitable property in the last few years. From old farms in Morocco to in-need-of-love Lodges in Spain and Boutique Vineyards the search eventually brought us all the way back home and Ao Marama more than fulfilled our criteria as a starting point and we now want to build upon the amazing effort by former owners and occupants. From the stunning regenerating bush setting, the absolutely stunning view across the Bay and the indescribable vibe of the place - it was very quickly apparent that this place had something different from anything else we had seen. We want everyone to arrive excited and leave rested and inspired and hopefully ever so slightly enriched. And now the journey begins...
