A fun name is a great way to start - and the Pickled Parrot lives up to its name and reputation.
Here's a tourism business on the market for the first time in 12 years, and it offers so much.
For starters, there's the obvious and enviable lifestyle in the gorgeous Paihia, in the Bay of Islands.
And there's the established business with great feedback from happy, satisfied guests.
It's a 45 bed backpackers - a self-contained 2 bedroom flat (ideal for the owners if necessary)
3 cabins; 2 X 6 bed dorms and 1 X 4 bed dorm; 1 budget double and 2 budget twins; 1 budget 3 share; 3 standard doubles.
There are 5 shower / toilet facilities plus an extra toilet, all easily accessed from everywhere on the property.
The communal kitchen, lounge and barbecue area are also centrally located and easily accessible - a great spot for guests to enjoy each other's company.
Campers are allowed to sleep in their cars or in a tent on the adjacent lawn for a small charge.
It's easily run by a single energetic person or couple. Choose to operate all year round or close for a while over winter.
On a separate title, and also available for sale, is the owner's near new Lockwood style two bedroom cottage, right next door where that tent-pitching lawn is. It all adds up to an attractive package just a short stroll from the Kings Road bar scene and the popular Paihia beach.
