Stewart Island Place Names …… 

Christmas Village



Christmas Village  …… Apparently there was a small kaika of Maori and Pakeha here . When the Pakeha left they gave all their surplus clothing to the Maori who thought it “was just like Christmas”

It should be noted that the Christmas Village hut is NOT in Christmas Village Bay

Sails Ashore and Kowhai Lane are Solar Powered

Sails Ashore now produces 100 % of our electrical needs, and have cut our non renewable heating fuel usage to around 20% of pre solar.
Kowhai Lane is "Grid Tied" and exports excess electricity to the local grid.
Both have significantly reduced our carbon footprint
