Your hosts are Bob and Robin Jones. We are Americans who retired early from our professions (physiotherapy and industrial hygiene) and ran off to sea. We sailed from Maine through the Caribbean and across the Pacific to New Zealand, visiting many island cultures and returning 3 times to the islands north of NZ.
Since arriving in New Zealand in Nov 2000 we have also spent countless weeks exploring our new country by car, 4wd and sailboat. We are continually amazed by the variety in the landscape and the hospitality of the people we meet.
We look forward to sharing our interest in widely diverse places and people, music, photography, and the awesome beauty of the South Island. Join us in the house we designed; let us help you plan your kiwi adventure while sharing our own version of that famous Kiwi hospitality.
