Okato. A lot going on since we moved 2013 to this little and unknown village on the coast of Taranaki. We are an Austrian hospo couple, living, breathing hospitality with passion. Where the mountain meets the sea is not only true, its also something you will not find very often. We hear often the peoples concerns about tourists and it should be heard! It is time to act now, to start with the right infrastructure e.g public toilets, rubbish bins, tourist information, networking . It’s in the interest of all of of us to bring more business to the area, knowing to support the community with more safe jobs and at the same time to protect the environment as it is what we use to bring guests to the Beauty of Taranaki.
