Well behaved guests - not too noisy especially in the evenings as a respect to others in the house and neighbourhood. Respectful of our home - we have worked very hard to bring our historic home up to modern standards but respecting its heritage so we would welcome guests who would look after our home as we do and we will look after you. :-)

Friendly, cheery person who is always ready to help. I am a proud Nanna to a boy and a girl and mother to 2 lovely girls. I am originally from Kent & Derbyshire, UK having moved to NZ in 2003 with my husband and daughters. We lived for 2 years in Taupo which we loved but missed our family in Wellington. We like to go to the many museums, shows and plays that are on in the locality and enjoy good food, music and travel. I like to read, swim and go dancing. I also enjoy cooking and make my own bread and preserves etc for our guests.
After working in Adult Education for many years, I decided to use the spare rooms we had after our girls left home to run a B&B and studio apartment letting which we did for some 5 years in Lower Hutt. We have both enjoyed meeting the lovely people we have met along the way and have had many repeat visitors who have become friends who we now look forward to welcoming to our beautiful old Mansion in Upper Hutt. It took over a year and a lot of hard work to renovate the house to include 2 suites which, we have learned from our previous venture and our own experiences, seem to provide different options to suit varied guests' needs and are most suitable for singles, couples and small families. We are now aiming to make the most of the beautiful park, track and river walks in Upper Hutt. My life motto is to "never die wishing I had..." So do anything you want to at least once.
Our favourite guests are those who respect our home and look after it and love it as we do.
