Jan - Your Host Jan is your main host at Breakers and is originally from Invercargill - the deep south of New Zealand. Invercargill is where she was born and raised before moving to Queenstown for 17 years. Jan worked intermittently in the tourism industry as well as legal and building industries. Before moving to the West Coast, Jan worked for a guiding company in the accounts department and doing some occasional guiding around the South Island. She can provide you with a wealth of information, advice and suggestions on how best to maximise your experience of the West Coast as well as the South Island in general. Jan loves the outdoors and enjoys mountain biking and hiking. Stephen Stephen was born and bred on the West Coast. He has lived here all his life with the exception of a two year break where he lived in the UK, France and Portugal. He also spent six months in Australia. Stephen is very passionate about the West Coast and the wonderful experiences it has to offer visitors. He enjoys mountain biking and hiking as well as kayaking and surfing. Stephen is also an avid amateur photographer and doesn't go far without his camera. The photos on the website are all taken by Stephen. Stephen is often on site, but as he is a self-employed electrician, he is generally at work during the day. If not, he can be found in the garage tinkering with his mountain bikes or helping out in the gardens.
