Nathan is a dyed-in-wool South Islander with a penchant for the outdoors and old-fashioned hospitality. There’s no better person to have in your corner when visiting Te Anau – especially if you plan on arranging outdoor activities like fishing, climbing and tramping. 

Nathan is a carpenter by trade. In fact, he even designed and built the very house that his guests stay in. With a background in the architectural and residential building sector, he has a strong grasp of what it is that makes a property attractive to holidaymakers, and he has put that knowledge to excellent use in choosing the location for and building his house.

This combined with his love of outdoor sports and his experience in hosting travellers through other tourism operations makes him a natural host. After many years working close to the tourism sector – leading hunting expeditions in Scotland and serving as a fly-fishing guide – he decided was ready to launch his own hospitality operation. This is how the Fiordland Bed and Breakfast was born, and it has proven to be an enormous success with visitors to the region.
