My wife, Kate and I are looking to rent/lease a small piece of land (pref. sheltered area with trees or bush) to build a small (unobtrusive) timber cottage. We would want to rent for at least 20+ years (with or without option to purchase at a later date) but are flexible. There does not need to be any road access, power or building permit. We are both working professionals (tertiary lecturer and social worker) who are looking for a place to live in the countryside and grow our own food in the Auckland region. If you have a corner somewhere on your farm or land that you could give over to someone guaranteed to care and nurture it for the future (and some cash every month) then please consider us.
