I am now living in Melbourne, so references are all NZ - don't worry ... I have an inside shower again :)

I am a health practitioner and work a couple of days from home by appointment, as well as out of town. There are times you'd have the house either to yourself.

I'm environmentally aware and attempt to live as waste free as possible, with minimal use of chemicals. There is an extensive (neglected) fruit and herb garden, and I am happy to cook an evening meal for you by arrangement if I am home.
I have a parrot named Rosie who will sing to you, but she is mostly either at work with me, or outside in the garden and will not get in your way unless you encourage her - she does love people.

No smoking allowed on the property.

    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!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
