I love life and try and make the most of every day. I enjoy making new friends and hosting travellers has become an awesome way of seeing the world without leaving home.
I'm originally from the UK and have been living in New Zealand for 20 years. I love the outdoors, particularly water sports, motor bike riding, travelling and sightseeing and having a location on Lake Pupuke and close to Takapuna Beach is paradise. Guests are encouraged to treat our home as their own and I like to catch up and discuss travel plans when I'm around. When not out on the water I work locally and take occasional overseas trips.
I love New Zealand, so helping visitors get the most out of their stay in this awesome country makes my day. Also, when time permits, I enjoy teaching my guests water skills in the safe environment of the beautiful North Shore of Auckland. Trips across to Rangitoto are available for the more adventurous.
