Our property is very quiet on the end of a gravel road near an estuary with great birdlife. We take guests on a guided tour with the chance of seeing Matata (fernbird)
Our guest accommodation is downstairs in our house. 3 rooms are together with a bathroom opposite. The largest room has an entrance door. We sleep upstairs but share the kitchen.
Our kitchen is basic but functional. We leave space for guests to keep some food in our refrigerator. We have a cold press juicer and high speed blender. We have a large vegetable garden that provides fresh veges in season. We keep some dairy products in the refrigerator for guest's breakfasts.
Access to our forest wetland walk. TV in the lounge. Free wifi internet.
We love the peace and quiet here and prefer to keep it that way.
Otatara is a suburb of Invercargill only 7 kilometres from the c.b.d. Much of the original forest has been cleared but we have one of the best remaining pieces. We are on the edge of the New River Estuary which gives our forest a gradient from ancient trees to salt marsh. We are the last house on a gravel road with no passing traffic.
We are 5 minutes from the airport. We can pick guests up from there or Invercargill free of charge. There is no bus service to Otatara.

About Your Host
We have been living here for over 20 years. We began restoring the wetland forest immediately. We have found that this place has changed us more than we could change it. This has led to us giving up meat and dairy mostly because of concern for our immediate environment and our planet. We are keen cyclists and prefer to use cycles most of the time for transport.
