Meet your Hosts
Jeroen arrived from Holland in the late ’80s, travelled NZ, and settled here in Ngunguru as the coastline touched his soul. He was taught to dive by legendary Wade Doak and started running dive boats out to the Poor Knights Islands.
Kate arrived twenty years ago, ostensibly for the weekend, but the coastline tugged at her soul too and she arrived in Tutukaka on a Friday and decided to stay longer than planned!
We have both worked together for almost 20 years, and have a passion and a love for the sea, this coastline, and our community.
Jeroen has a son in the superyacht industry, and his daughter-in-law and granddaughter live in our valley whilst Kate has a daughter just finished at University who works in the business and lives in our Whare Aroha. (House of Love)
We have popped some of our original artworks in the building, and pretty much everything is made and placed with love.The number nine has a meaning of wisdom, peace, and tranquillity – in Maori we say iwa – and we hope you feel the special sense in the valley that we do.Book Now
