I have a wide variety of interests. I enjoy sharing our big garden and Chalet with my guests. Welcome, it will be lovely to meet you, come on in and just relax.
I love to cycle, Mt Bike, ski, snow bike. I have ridden horses all my life, I represented NZ in cycling and have 28 years of being a Registered Nurse. I am currently helping vaccinate our population.

I take great pleasure in entertaining people who appreciate and respect our peaceful and tranquil surroundings. I take tours beyond “Cabbage Tree Retreat”. We explore our local areas, country, mountains and beaches, look for wildlife, baby seals, and penguins. My tours are relaxed and I stop here and there at your leisure.
If you are keen to go to Tekapo-Mt Cook; if a hike sounds like you, then take a peek at “Arahi Tours NZ”.
SKI with us at Mt Hutt. On my days off we load up and leave early.
