Hekerua Lodge Backpacker is becoming Hekerua Co-Living!!!

As you know, the impact of Covid has decimated what was known as the ‘New Zealand tourism industry’.

But we believe that breakdowns are good because they lead to CHANGE.

The various lockdowns we’ve endured have benefited many parts of New Zealand’s natural environment.

So we thoughts let’s learn from the impact of Covid & use it as an opportunity to think differently, think sustainability and create meaningful change in our community –

To look beyond sustainability is to look towards regeneration and restoration, and emphasise our responsibilities as kaitiaki to create positive CHANGE.

Coliving is the trend of living with other people in one space, that encourages its residents to interact and learn together. It’s a new concept on Waiheke in response to the shortage of housing. A place where residents with shared interests value things like sustainability, Nature, social networking, and the sharing economy.

 

A modern communal living in a central bush setting environment 

 that offers many benefits.
