Meet your Hosts

We are Gayle & Norm Eade, previous owners of Hotels and Taverns over the years, we are now retired and enjoying life by the sea.

We have owned the house since 1992 and we have run it as a guest house over the last ten years.

I am a keen golfer and we like to walk our dog Bruce (springer spaniel) on the beach. Norman is an ex oilfield worker and engineer, and enjoys cooking and riding around the hill tracks. We both have e-bikes which is great for the hills and bike tracks around us here in Sumner.

We love meeting people and welcoming guests from all round the world.

We will always respect your privacy but are always available for any information and assistance you may require.
