We loan because...
We, together, want to lend a hand

About us
The Kiva RedRoos

If and when I perhaps have the time to promote our Group – I would like to see it emerging as a group of people who:

• Have a love for travel especially to experience authenticity , appreciating cultures discovered, and accepting and learning from the wealth of diversity within our global village.

• Know that we need to protect our natural environment by walking the talk and spreading the word on the need and benefits of living Life sustainably

• Enjoy lending a hand to a neighbor – next door or further afield

• Know how to have fun along Life’s Journey whilst respecting each other.


Tassie-Roo is the ‘Face’ behind the Group and provided the inspiration for the development of the Kiva RedRoos.She is a 2year old pedigree Golden Retriever who was born in a chicken coop. With a $600 check we rescued her and now she is an integral part of our family and business - and won the hearts of all who have got to know her including my mother-in-law.

Tassie is the nickname she prefers to be called by as her pedigree name is rather a long one – It started out as Aotearoa Tassie. (Aotearoa is the Maori name for New Zealand and Tassie is short for Tasmania – the island state of Australia - a hidden gem and a destination my wife and I regard as somewhat special.).

However, it wasn’t long before we found that when Tassie is in a demanding mood to go out for a quick pee she jumps from a sitting position like a Kangaroo and talks to me about the urgency of the matter – eye to eye – fair dinkum! Whoops almost forgot to mention that I’m 6ft 2+. After discovery of this little quirk there was no question, Tassie had to have an even longer name: Aotearoa Tassie-Roo !
