Louise and Dean are committed to sustainability - protecting and caring for our environment we live in is important to us. Everything we do has an impact and our commitment is long term.
Kaitikaitanga is the Maori concept of guardianship of sky, sea and land - by following these processes and practices below we strive to minimise our impact on the environment. This is a selection of initiatives of what we do and what we mean by being green - if you want any more information about what we do please let us know.
Ten years ago we started protecting our stream. We planted over 4,600 trees to encourage birds and bees. Our stream planting contributes to the native bird corridor up from the Waikanae River.
We strive to reduce our carbon emissions and are measuring our footprint. In November 2023 we installed 20 solar panels and a battery so our energy use has been drastically reduced.We use the Climate Action toolbox to measure our electricity use, fuel, and waste output.
We think before we buy, think before we use and think before we discard. We have over 50 measures we have taken towards sustainable tourism. We like to give back to our community with donations to local food banks and actively support local suppliers.
