Janine and Geoff are dedicated to provide excellence in hosting guests from all countries. Our attention to detail will ensure that your stay will be as pleasurable and relaxing as possible. Tourists or Business travellers visiting Aotearoa (New Zealand) will find us always available to help either for advice on your trip while in New Zealand or to assist you with contacts and everyday needs.
Janine comes from a medical background. After being a nurse for several years, she managed for two decades a large Health facility (Hospice) in Auckland. She now works as a consultant.
After having worked for several years as a professional pilot in France, Africa and around the world, Geoff worked in the hospitality industry in Tahiti where he published a Best-Seller Recipe book on French & Polynesian Cuisine. Passionate about nature and people, he has also worked with several UN environmental and development organisations for over 15 years. He also runs a language translation and P.R. business in New Zealand.
Both Janine and Geoffroy enjoy travelling to foreign countries and meeting the people. Some of our passions include family gathering, sailing, boating and diving, mountain biking, winter sports, kayaking as well as music festivals and playing or listening to music.
As hosts we are always happy to hear about your travels and stories. However, we respect our guest privacy and our B&B setting will allow you to be totally independent if you wish so.
We are looking forward to hosting you at the Harbour View Cottage.
