My name is Kim Baker and offering you this accommodation and being of service to my guests is a long held dream.
I have done many things in my life, having owned and operated four small businesses. This venture will be my fifth. Prior to buying this beautiful property I led the gypsy life, being a house and pet sitter in New Zealand and overseas. I also worked briefly in the political world and have taught high school students the thing I know most about; hospitality.
Initially I owned this property with my partner and we named it Motuaruhe, a traditional name for the bay. Now, on my own, it is my intention to share my Paradise with others; I want them to experience the peace and joy I find in this wonderful environment. It’s a long way from the shops and pleasures we find in cities and this isolation might be regarded as a disadvantage… but not by me.
Here, at Motuaruhe, I have time and space to appreciate the beauty of the natural world and to give thanks for my blessings. Knowing that we all need to do that more often, it is part of my dream to offer that opportunity, however briefly, to you too.
