Your hosts – Introducing Paul and Susanne

Kia Ora. Welcome to this beautiful corner of the world.

In a previous life, Paul and Susanne spent 11 years working in the private yacht industry. They travelled the world and catered to all the requirements of the yacht owners and guests. These travels took them to many far-flung corners of the globe, but the lifestyle and beauty of NZ eventually had them heading for land.  First of all came the next phase of making a home and raising a family. Although Paul is a New Zealander, Susanne is from Denmark in addition adding a touch of Scandinavian influence.

The providing of stylish accommodation was a natural progression from working in the super yacht industry, hence, Ara Roa began with Te Huia and grew from there. For 17 years now they have shared this amazing piece of NZ with visitors from all over the world, many who return again and again.

Paul and Susanne invite you to come and see for yourself.

If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, please feel free to call for a chat, send a message or email. We look forward to hearing from you.
