Famous neighbors and special service

Leisha, whose neighbors once belonged to Michael J. Fox, is a small, polite old lady who can tell a lot of stories. Their house is neat and friendly, flowers on the table, floral country tapestries in the English country style, silk pillows and blankets in the bed, tea and biscuits in the room and everything very orderly.

And Leisha also likes to come and pick up her guests at the nearby airport: "I like to make extras for people," says Leisha. Guests should feel at home in their house on Evans Bay - and the lovingly designed guest books on the tables in the room tell them that they do. "Just write in what you want, I can leave it later," she says to me with a lot of humor and a wink.

1956 with the ship emigrated

Even if Leisha makes the impression of a perfect hostess, she came to her profession rather by chance: for her life was more like a traditional one. With 18 she came with her parents from the Netherlands to New Zealand, which was 1956. At that time the whole route was still going on by boat.

She did not have much desire to emigrate, but her father, a merchant, determined that. Even today, Leisha keeps contact with school friends on the other side of the world.

Her sons went to school with Peter Jackson

Her name Leisha is the English abbreviation of the Dutch name Lisje, the short version of Elizabeth. The Newfoundlanders could not pronounce Lisje properly, she says, they were always called Lisha - that's the reason she had anglicised her first name.

Instead of going to college, she worked for a long time as a model married and got two sons who went to school, among others, with Mr. Peter Rings director Peter Jackson.

Marks his own abilities

After a few blows of fate, she almost had to sell her house to 2004. Since she traveled a lot, speaks several languages ​​and enjoys taking care of others, she came up with the idea of ​​making it a BedundBreakfast instead.

She also found the name by chance: she phoned the bank to allow her customers credit card payments and was asked for the name of her BundB:

The founding spirit and modern communication media

She looked out of the window, looked over the Evans Bay and spontaneously said: Homestay at Evans Bay BundB. From her son she got some money for it, his friends sent the first guests over.

Although Elizabeth has a more traditional worldview, she appreciates modern communication media. The Internet offers you the opportunity to communicate with friends and acquaintances all over the world. And their guests can even book with them by SMS from the road.
