Franz Josef Glacier is a beautiful place and it is a privilege for us to work in such a unique environment. Your accommodation hosts, Marie and Deane Goodall, look forward to hosting you and sharing this special place with you.
Marie began in the tourist industry in 1998 servicing Punga Grove suites and studios, and following time in other hospitality establishments has returned to where her career began to now manage Punga Grove with her husband Deane.
Deane started in tourism at the Helicopter Line in 1999 firstly as a helicopter loader and then as assistant base manager. After a short break from tourism in the transport industry, he has returned with his family to the place he loves.
We have Three Adult Children, 1 grandson and one cat. We know this area well, having lived in Franz Josef for over 18 years and we look forward to helping you enjoy the scenic attractions and activities of the beautiful region of South Westland which we call home.
