Rets & Ro

Who Are We?

whanauWe are a young, local family with two children, Jett and Monroe. We have both grown up in the area and have been visiting the National Park since childhood days.

We love to live and work in such an incredible place and it really is our privilege to show you one of New Zealand's gems.

Lauretta (Rets) grew up in the Golden Bay area, the northern end of the National Park. She has been primary school teaching for over 14 years and still works as a teacher during the winter months.

Rohan (Ro) grew up in the Motueka area, the southern end of the National Park. He has a real passion for the outdoors and has been working in the sea kayak industry in the Abel Tasman from 2002, ever since he left Motueka High School. Rohan is also a member of the SKOANZ (Sea Kayak Operators Association of New Zealand) and is a sea kayak assessor for NZOIA (New Zealand Outdoors Instructors Association). He has been a big part of the introduction and development of regulations/qualifications in the sea kayak industry and is on the Technical Committees for NZOIA and Skills Active for writing and evaluating sea kayak qualifications.

Between the two of us we know this place literally like the back of our hands. So let us take the stress out of life and take you on a relaxing break in the Abel Tasman National Park.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
