Jan and Paul Blackford, your hosts
a lifetime of living in and travelling through
many other parts of the world, including
sixteen years in Papua New Guinea where
Paul was a pilot and Jan an Art and ESOL
teacher, we decided to make the Bay of Plenty,
New Zealand our home. We love living in
this private, peaceful and beautiful place
where there is so much to see and do yet
close to airports and cities as well.
our black and white cat is the only member
of our family still living at home
designed and built Katiki Lodge to share
with others who we hope will go away refreshed
because they have spent time here. ."
