I am a fun loving lady who works with the elderly. I love the beach life and that's why I live where I live.
During your stay
I am home in the evenings and weekends. I am a lady in her 50s and am the custodian of this fine old house for 11 months per year.
Today Exnells remains a summer house to the whanua as it always has been. Large Christmas gatherings are a regular event with many visitors sleeping over in tents on the lawn. The house is remarkably original by modern standards with most items mentioned in Mrs McDonalds rental advertisement in 1898 still remaining, including the bathing house, garage, detached wash house and the piano. The convenience of an inside bathroom was only added in 1995.

Exnells has been in the same family since 1915 dating back to Alice Coombs. There are now many family shareholders all of whom hold a stake in its heritage, history and also its future.
