A multi-millionaire iced-coffee mogul is inviting New Zealanders to apply to live with him on his remote North Island coastal “paradise”. 

German national Karl Reipen is looking for 10 people, aged up to 70, who are interested in joining a communal living situation at his Awakino Estate on the west coast in southern Waikato.  

The advertisement, published twice in the NZ Herald’s Holiday accommodation section this past week, outlines the benefits successful candidates will enjoy.

“They could live in houses by two persons and share a beautiful winery for social meetings and dining. If you are interested to live a life with a group of interesting people it can be a new life for you,” the advertisement says. 

“You can enjoy walking, fishing, shopping, kayaking, bird watching, swimming or looking at the nice animals.”
