Viv and Ed Eliot are a Coromandel couple living a true Coromandel Goodness love story. This is the story of their passion and commitment to two coastal locations: Tairua, on the Coromandel Peninsula, and a small island southwest of Timor, Indonesia. This is the story of their simultaneous connection and contribution to both places. Together they have created a unique lifestyle that brings the best of both worlds to themselves and those around them.

Now I’m tapping into a whole new level. I am more in tune with the ocean, the bush and the mountains. It feels like I’m stepping into who I really am.”
