Multi-Millionaire Is Looking for 10 People to Live With Him in New Zealand

Moving in with a roommate you don’t know can be a dicey proposition, but this particular opportunity is a bit more enticing than what you’d find on Craigslist. Karl Reipen, a German multi-millionaire and iced-coffee mogul, is looking for 10 “nice people” to share his remote New Zealand estate with him. The 540-acre Awakino estate is located on the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island, and has a winery, stables for horses, and sweeping views of the Tasman Sea.

According to the ad posted in the New Zealand Herald’s holiday accommodation section, successful applicants “could live in houses by two persons and share a beautiful winery for social meetings and dining […] You can enjoy walking, fishing, shopping, kayaking, bird watching, swimming, or looking at nice animals.”

Anyone is welcome to apply, as long as they’re under 70 years old, and not afraid to live in a remote area (the closest cities are 90 minutes away). Reipen also encourages you to BYOH (Bring Your Own Horses).

Reipen, who made his fortune selling canned iced coffee, bought the estate back in 2000 and spent 10 years renovating it.
