Ian & Frances
In 1999 we decided to sell the dairy farm and have a life style change. As fly fishing was Ian's passion from a very young age, we shifted to Turangi. Ian (as well as our son Andrew) set up a trout fishing guide business and Frances worked in 2 different restaurants which she thoroughly enjoyed. In mid 2004 our Tui Lodge was purpose built to a high standard as a B&B, designed by Ian himself. We moved into our lodge in January 2005, we had a major task ahead of us with gardens to be established and lawns to be sown.
Having had many people stay with us from all parts of the world, life has been interesting! The lodge has been designed to offer guests their own privacy as well as the opportunity to be part of the family.
We welcome you to Tui Lodge and Turangi - the adventure centre of the North Island!
