About Us

We are a German / Kiwi couple.

Bruce is a real 5th generation Kiwi and a very skilled all rounder.
He was born and raised in Little River, but he has been away for many years.
He is well traveled and worked in a lot of different countries like Italy, Iran, Norway, Greece and Turkey. For many years he was working as a skipper in the Mediterranean and has experienced a lot of different cultures.

Trixi comes from the Moselle valley in Germany, a famous wine area. She worked for more than fifteen years in the hotel and gastronomy business where she developed her love for cooking and wine and she likes making people feel at home.

After spending six years together in Germany, they decided, eight years ago, to settle down in Bruce’s home country. After having a good look around where to settle down, they both fell in love with the beautiful nature, the leisureliness and the island atmosphere you can find here. And they would like to show you a part of their much loved Banks Peninsula, so you can take some unforgettable memories home with you.
