Bernice and Dougal were both born in South Canterbury and spent a considerable amount of time during their childhoods holidaying with their families around the South Island.
Now all grown up, they each settled in this magical holiday town a number of years ago, before marrying and buying Clearbrook.
Dougal, a helicopter pilot and farmer, grew up on a high country station near Tekapo and now divides his time between running Clearbrook and farming at Dublin Bay.
Bernice also grew up in a farming family and, after travelling extensively overseas, she returned to Timaru where she owned and ran a day spa.
Both are experienced skiers and take every opportunity to enjoy Wanaka’s numerous attractions, including mountain biking, hunting, fishing, water skiing and hiking. And they are always happy to share their local knowledge with guests.
Bernice and Dougal have owned and operated Clearbrook since May 2009 and are ready and willing to help you feel at home in Wanaka.
