Wendy and Craig Kennedy have been married for 15 years now and have a spirited 15year old daughter Lucia. We love meeting new people and one of the compelling reasons we have decided to open our home to travellers is to make new friends and share our New Zealand culture with people.
Wendy is a business consultant specialising in business and personal transformation, Craig is a consulting engineer, who is currently
managing people's house rebuilds, repairs and reparations for an insurance company
He loves his job because he gets to make a difference to people's quality of life.
In winter, when the weather is good, we spend as much time as possible skiing. Lucia is a ski demon, Craig tries to keep up, but fails and Wendy has mastered the art of après skiing choosing to read a book, drinking hot chocolate or the odd wine instead while enjoying the majestic mountain environment. So if you are here in winter, skiing whether it's to sit and enjoy the atmosphere, or ski you are most welcome to join us. Craig's other passion is motorbiking. He has a big boys bike - sits mainly idle, but every now and again he puts the leathers on and he goes touring for a day. Always comes home happy! Summer is for fun. Craig is a white water kayaker and has navigated most grade 5 rivers around the globe. Wendy enjoys summer activities at the beach, walking on the hills, in bush and of course shopping.
We have travelled extensively. Wendy loves Turkey and Sir Lanka; Craig loves Nepal and parts of China, whilst Lucia dreams of England!
We love entertaining. In summer our house is always full of family, neighbours and friends enjoying barbeques and fine wines.
We are relaxed hosts. Because we are used to travelling we have tried to set our place up to give you privacy, when you want it or freedom to socialise. We have ensured you have a comfortable bed so you have a relaxing time. One word of warning, our daughter Lucia has developed a passion for "clean cuisine" i.e gluten free, sugar free, etc and you be compelled to try out her experiments. Our motto - Life is Good!
