Britten Norman Islander, they also come in turbine versions. It's a twin(you wont get eaten if a donk quits), its high wing(good views all round and good prop/ground clearance), and its stol, fixed gear and easy to maintain.

I would go for a Maule. Single engine, half the cost and noise of an Islander. Lands on a few hundred feet of grass or dirt.
