Your Host - Brian Tester

Brian is retired and has had many interests in his time. He is well travelled, having visited and toured the British Isles, Europe, Australia, Canada, and various Pacific Islands, staying at many B&B's of varying standards. He is still a keen golfer and is a member of the internationally rated Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club.

Brian is from the Hutt Valley near Wellington, and was a fully qualified motor mechanic with his own garage for the first half of his career. He went on to become a motor assessor and fire & general loss adjuster for New Zealand Insurance for 20 years. He carried on in this very interesting occupation which included travelling to disaster areas in the Pacific and in New Zealand, to assist with assessing hurricane and flood damage, until retirement.

Now living on his own, Brian has two sons and a daughter who are all doing well in their own careers and families.

His interests over the years have included rugby, boat building, boating and water skiing (great for the family), barbershop singing, playing the piano (very average), martial arts, and of course, golf.

Incidentally for golfers wanting to play the international Paraparaumu Beach Golf Course (listed in the world top 100) which is just across the road from the B&B, Brian is happy to arrange times and dates, or you can simply go directly to the club website and book your own tee times in advance.

Having a Bed & Breakfast has been a great interest and a way to meet people from other walks of life, as well as giving people from other countries an enjoyable New Zealand experience.
