New Zealand destinations
My home is less than 2 kms from Havelock, the historical town at the centre of 1500 kms of winding coastline, secluded bays and island sanctuaries. We are 25 minutes from Blenheim, 1 hour from Nelson and 1/2 an hour from Picton along Queen Charlotte Drive. Havelock is set in one of New Zealand's sunniest spots and in New Zealand's largest wine producing region. My home is on 1/2 an acre carved out of a working sheep farm and accross the street from a working dairy farm. The views are breathtaking, and the sheep, cows and native birdsong will put you at peace with nature.
What makes the property unique is that although we are nestled between hills and surrounded by farm animals, yet you can glimse the water at high tide, less than 1 km away. You can enjoy boat rides thru the Sounds, my favorite is the Pelorus Mail Run; visit local wineries, or walk the coastal walking tracks.
My two cats and my chihuahua are very friendly. My two canaries are happy and chirpy, the male bursting into song occasionally. I have two lambs on loan to keep the grass down in my paddock, and have 3 young chooks that will soon be providing me with free range eggs.
