Boardwalks meander through wetlands and lush coastal forests of kahikatea, tawa, nikau, karaka and rewarewa with an abundance of birdlife. It is suitable for all ages and abilities.

Why not wander in the nursery after your coffee or purchase some of the best cage free eggs in the Horowhenua from Bennik’s Eggs situated in the same complex?

I am an energetic retiree who loves people! My husband and I love to travel and share experiences with people from all over the world but we also love our little Paradise at Haven @ the oaks. I enjoy music, sewing and gardening and we both like to volunteer to help others less fortunate than ourselves. My recently retired husband is a great handyman and loves working around our lovely property.
