Property has mature Puriri, Pohutukawa, Olive and pepper tree (a member of the cashew family that produces pink peppercorns. Although graphic shows no children, they are fine provided there is water very close to the house (not fenced) and the lush tropical grounds contain many volcanic rocks and plants with prickles/thorns. Therefore children are fine provided they are under continuous supervision outside. Also the Lanai has a 700mm (two foot) drop to the adjacent garden beds. An exit clean is included in the rental price but there is no daily cleaning.
Property is OK for children aged 5+. Younger children must be supervised at all times outside as half the property is close to water with numerous access points andamp; is not fenced. Also the landscaping which is tropical has numerous spikes/thorney species/roses. The property is suitable for small weddings/anniversaries but as we are a quiet rural setting with neighbours 100 metres away on either side, outdoor noise must abate by 10pm.
