We are a semi retired couple with 7 children between us & 10 grandchildren . Our children are spread out between Canada, Australia, Scotland, Waiheke Island & Auckland.
We are originally from Auckland.
The 5 things we couldn't live without are: travel, food, wine, our dog Jonty & our Grandchildren. Oh and of course, we couldn't live anywhere else but Athenree.
We have travelled more than some but not as much as many, enjoying the Pacific Islands over the past few years. Our most memorable trip was to London & Scotland to visit family a few year ago.
Our motto is to Enjoy every day. Be happy, don't let the small stuff get you down.
We love to have people to stay & have enjoyed friends and hosted visitors many times. Most memorable. A teacher from France who stayed with us for almost a year. We became her "parents" & helped her through a pregnancy & birth of her first child ..that was 16 years ago & we are still in touch with her , her husband & 3 lovey children..
