(Updated July 2021) Appletree Haven is a homely house at 11 Massey Road, Gisborne, owned by Peter and Raewyn Harris, grandparents and romantics from the North, drawn down to Gisborne for the grandson in the header picture, and another who came along two years later. Our daughter Anna, a GP in Gisborne when not giving birth to and nurturing our grandsons, had been nagging at us for years to come and live in Giz. Now we are here, and after flatting in the house for a few years we managed to buy it.
The cabin in the back is what we rent out now, and our son and we live in the house. Our grandsons, now eight and six, sometimes come for a sleepover on the weekend, but usually it is very quiet around here!
