Welcome to Hazel House and Dunedin.
Sandy was born in Australia and moved to New Zealand as an early teenager. Brent was born and bred in Dunedin. We have both travelled widely, enjoy meeting people from different cultures, but it is Dunedin that holds our interest and hearts. We have three daughters and two grandsons.
Sandy loves sewing and works alongside our daughter designing and dressmaking for the Gemma Ltd label. She is an experienced hairstylist with a love of meeting people. Sandy has a great artistic flare and is a much loved grandma.
Brent has extensive experience in education, as a teacher and principal. Interests include coaching athletics and gardening. Coaching positions have included New Zealand Team and Personal Coach to World Championships, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games.
Hazel House attracted us because of its grand features. It caught our attention and we continue to enjoy sharing her with our guests.
We have a strong belief that Dunedin with its history, its art and culture, its sport, New Zealand's first University, the amazing wildlife on our doorstep, and the warm southern hospitality of the people is a must stopover for travellers. We look forward to welcoming guests with tea, coffee or a wine.
