About Your Lighthouse Lodge Hosts
Your hosts at Lighthouse are Paul and Penny Carney. Their passion for people and their enjoyment of sharing has led to the development of Lighthouse Lodge boutique accommodation. Paul and Penny are fifth and fourth generation New Zealanders respectively.
Paul has farmed in Hawkes Bay all his life, combining this, for the last 15 years, with a partnership in a Hawkes Bay livestock business. He loves to relay a story and has a keen interest in people, places and sport – for some years he represented Hawkes Bay in our national game, rugby. His knowledge of Hawkes Bay is vast.
Penny has taught English as a second language (ESL) for many years to all ages and nationalities and loves this work. Home, their family and friends have been uppermost in her life and she takes great pleasure in creating an environment that others can enjoy. She is also passionate about singing, especially women’s barbershop, and overseas travel.
