Taupo, New Zealand · Member since August 2013

I am the department head at a Taupo secondary school - I teach English. I have four grown up children, we have 3 cats. My husband Michael and I like to spend time at the beach and on the lake fishing.
We enjoy having guests to stay but at the same time like to give you privacy.
