Northland Homestay Accommodation

at Whananaki North

Nebeska Vala ticked all the right boxes when I went searching for a coastal hideaway retirement block in 1990 - a great climate, 10 acres of native bush clad land,direct beach access, mesmerising water views and absolute privacy. The house was duly built and I share it with my long time partner Cathy.

The name Nebeska Vala loosely means "Heavenly Bay" in Croatian. As a second generation Kiwi of Dalmation heritage, I felt that by giving the property this name, it parallels the raw natural beauty of the Croatian coastline.

Cathy's career in banking specialised in foreign exchange, while my Ph D in ecology has enhanced my understanding and respect for nature, especially in this beautiful part of the world. My interests include investing in stocks and understanding ramifications of the current global economic crisis. Cathy's primary interests include health and nutrition.

We are both keen golfers and enjoy fishing from our tinny.
