About Me


Enjoying Kiwi life!


I'm from Ireland and have been living in New Zealand for four years, love the lifestyle down here! Lots to see and do, plenty of space for everyone and sometimes some good weather.Try to do some travelling a few times a year either around NZ or Austrailia/Asia and sometimes the pacific islands. So much to see! I'm laid back and into music, good conversation, hiking, watersports, socialising and current affairs. Big news junkie. Play keyboards with cover bands at the weekend and listen to all kinds of classic/prog rock, blues, soul and traditional. We don't have a great couch as such but a big rug in our living room with a blowup mattress so bring a sleeping bag. Its got a gorgeous view of Shelly bay and is nice and peacefull. Quite old fashioned as is the rest of the place. Most flatmates are up and about by 9 so we'd expect you to be the same and always respectfull of our stuff. Fine to use the Kitchen, Shower and some internet if you wish. We can share a meal or two together. If someone isnt busy they might show you around some of the citys gorgeous attractions...


Life is short, take it one day at a time and enjoy it as much as possible! Don't have time for boring people
