Good evening

My wife Kaia and I are a NZ Resident couple from Hungary and are looking for long term accommodation in Glenorchy. We are writing to you because we would like your help so that we soon can realise our dream!

We’ve been living in Queenstown for 14 months but now we really feel the time has come to establish stronger relationships with Nature and with our friends from our awesome community (Ayumi & Olly, Bobbie, Sarsha, Caro & Brahmananda and more).

I’m an Architectural Graduate, permaculturist, musician, and I work for Team Green Architects. Kaia is a certified permaculture designer and brilliant gardener, a fashion designer and manager, and runs her own all-natural beauty care business, KAIA’S Naturals.

We are ready to move immediately (one month notice with our current place) and we would appreciate any offer. We would like to maintain the privacy of our potential landlord and that of ours though, so a self-contained unit is certainly preferable. The owners will not only benefit directly from our (especially Kaia’s) gardening skills and knowledge but also from our fun, respectful and relaxed company!

Thank you in advance!
