About your host, Andrea

Andrea's Photo

Rupert and I moved out of Auckland in 2016 to Katikati after our 4 children had grown up and left home. We have 2 dogs and a few free range chickens that keep us busy when we are not looking after our orchard and the lodge. We have travelled all over the world in the past and understand what travellers need. Our goal is to give back to our guests the friendly welcome that we received ourselves when travelling.
