About us, Russell & Sandy

Russell and Sandy would like to welcome you to Ti Kouka House, and West Coast hospitality!
Ti Kouka has been an adventure in itself, a building in which to indulge our love of old timbers and treasures collected and stored, waiting for just such a project. Russell is a born and bred Coaster, who knows and loves the Coast and its history. Sandy is a transplant from Bermuda still trying to earn her "Coaster's Stripes!"
In the past Sandy enjoyed a sporting background as a distance runner. Now that energy is directed into art and an insatiable Border Collie, as well as the pleasure of entertaining our guests at Ti Kouka.
Russell has a background in horticulture and surveying. Now his challenge is turning a gorse paddock, which was once where Ti Kouka now stands, into a haven of native bush and bird life.
The Coast is a wonderland of rain forest and wild beaches for you to explore, so stay a while and enjoy. We look forward to making you feel at home in our home.
