Danny and Karen Tobeck are the hosts at Hawthorne House. Both Danny and Karen have spent their previous lives in Auckland, Danny running a successful construction business and Karen as a partner in a Chartered Accountancy firm in East Auckland. Their love of the Hawke's Bay and Havelock North in particular has been developed over the last few years with many trips to the area for cycling, winery visits and catching up with friends. Moving down to Hawke's Bay to share this love of the area was the reason they moved to Hawthorne House in November 2016.
Danny is the gardener and is in charge of the beautiful property as well as being the gourmet cook providing you with a delightful breakfast. For Danny and Karen it’s a new world but their great love of travel and meeting people makes them perfect hosts. If it’s a peaceful oasis in the middle of wine country that you are dreaming of then Hawthorne House is the ideal place and together Danny and Karen look forward to meeting you and sharing, with you, their beautiful home and grounds.
We look forward to welcoming you to Hawthorne House.
