Born in the Netherlands, I have been living in New Zealand since 1999. I love my new country, spending time on the beach with my family and spending time at home doing creative stuff. Cats are my favourite pets, but I also like chickens and the eggs they provide. When I go on holiday, I like to go on road trips, to visit friends and family, and beautiful places. There's plenty of those in New Zealand. I also love visiting my old country and the islands of the Pacific. I like to treat others the way I would like to be treated and am a firm believer in the Dutch saying: Wie goed doet goed ontmoet. I enjoy hosting people at the XSPOT and try to make sure that they have a great break, both in our apartment and on Great Barrier Island. I have been interested in astronomy for a while now, as Great Barrier's sky is just so good, and in 2017 I've set up the business Good Heavens, with my friend Deborah. We provide Dark Sky Experiences to visitors to Great Barrier Island. So much fun! Ask me about it if you are interested.

During your stay

We greet our guests on arrival, introducing them to the delights and responsibilities that come with staying in a place run 100% on alternative power. We also give our guests a few ideas on things to do on Great Barrier Island and provide them with really good tourist maps. When our guests return from exploring the island, we often ask how their day has been, if they caught any waves or fish, and on their last day, we do like to say farewell and see ya again soon. We live on site. We do not rent out the apartment when we are not here, as we need to monitor our alternative power and water systems.
