Locals Kezna and Braden Cameron, who have a 26 hectare property by the beach, have been written about this month in NZ House & Garden. You may have spotted some of their Arabian horses on the beach sometimes.
Like others in the area they’re doing their bit to keep pests at bay and enhance the wetland environment.
the garden … has been planted in waves of native grasses that wind their way down to the lake. Braden and Kezna are working with the local council to ensure pests such as stoats are eradicated from the lake area.
Not surprisingly, the couple say this is their forever home. “Working in the property industry we see a lot of places we love, but this house works perfectly for us and our family and we love the location, so we have no plans to move.”
