About the Homestay
Edit due to Covid: I am offering short term accommodation in two double rooms with shared shower/toilet for those rooms only. You can have one or both, and use a seperate entrance if you wish. Shared kitchen is cleaned between every use to a high standard and separation from the other side of the house is possible.
I am a health practitioner and work a couple of days from home by appointment, but mostly you'll have the place to yourself.
I'm environmentally aware and attempt to live as waste free as possible, with minimal use of chemicals. There is an extensive fruit and herb garden, and I am happy to cook an evening meal for you by arrangement.
I have a parrot named Rosie who will sing to you maybe, but she is mostly either at work with me, or outside in the garden. I also have 3 chickens who wander freely in the back garden.
No smoking allowed on the property.

I am pretty easy-going but understand that sometimes the things we take for granted in our own homes and cultures can sometimes not be the same for all. All I ask is that you respect that you are staying in my home, not a hostel/hotel.
Smoking is not allowed.
Thank you so much lovely Marijke for this awesome stay at your paradise
Lovely greetings from Felix and Raphaela <3
Marijke has a lovely and rustic homestay on a beautiful location. She is a very welcoming person who is really busy in this season (December). The toilet and bathroom are outside, the bed is very comfy.
We are so glad we had the chance to stay here.
Loved staying with Marijke, she made us feel so at home. We woke every morning to a lovely breakfast and at the end of the day we relaxed in front of the fire enjoying great conversations with our host. Thanks Marijke for being such a fantastic host.
Marijke looked after us very well. Her home was very warm and she and house mates very friendly. Pru (the cat) very friendly and will enjoy all the time you have to stroke and cuddle her. All in all a very good 2 nights. Well recommended.
I had a lovely stay with Marijke, who's a very friendly host and cares that people she welcomes feel comfortable and have everything needed. Marijke's housemates are also very cordial. The house is beautiful, the bedroom is spacious with excellent bedding. Breakfast was yummy, including tasty home-made bread. For cat lovers, Prudence stays at your disposal to receive your affection :)
If you're to stay around Invercargill, I'd certainly recommend getting in touch with Marijke!
wonderful house,very good bed good breakfast,and a great cat
