Grant and I have been happily hosting overseas visitors since 1991. Gayle has recently set up her own company and although Grant is semi retired, he is very busy completing the renovations and helping out with the grandchildren. We have been married for coming up 40 years and have 3 grown up children and 6 beautiful grandchildren aged 1 to 8 years old. We love sailing, skiing and catching up with family. We have sailed in New Zealand, Greece, Italy, Croatia and Whitsunsundays. Grant loves cooking and makes great coffee plus creates a tasty continental breakfast to satisfy the most ardent foodie. Ongoing renovations and creating gardens to relax in, are still taking up our time. Although you will find us relaxing on the deck enjoying the expansive sea and estuary views or chilling out by the solar heated pool with a good book and a tasty NZ wine. We have travelled extensively enjoying time in London, Paris, New York, Washington, Italy, Croatia, Greece and explored most Australian cities. We are relatively new to Airbnb starting in November 2016 and are gradually learning the ropes. We have met some lovely people and have enjoyed hosting people from around New Zealand and overseas. We continue with renovations in between Airbnb bookings. Our favourite walk currently is along Tamaki Drive from St Heliers to Mission Bay and back again.
