KJ Jennings

We are a privately owned company who listens to you, offers idea’s, and then creates an experience tailored to meet and exceed your ultimate holiday dream.

The founder and director of the company, KJ Jennings, is an American expatriate with New Zealand residency. He has called Queenstown home for the last sixteen years.

Sixteen years of working, living, and exploring the Queenstown and Southern Lakes Region has enabled him to build relationships with premium suppliers. His in-depth knowledge of the people and places, and extensive experience in the service industry, allow him to deliver the ultimate experience to guests who expect personal premier service.

KJ comes from Sonoma County in Northern California, and gained experience in the service industry early in life. He was involved in the co-ordination of service at the Bohemian Grove; he then designed, built, and operated a cafe in this prestigious wine region.

In Queenstown he was part of the original set-up team of the now, world famous, AJ Hackett Bungy company. He has twice been event manager for the New Zealand Mountain Biking Championships. He also indulged his love of food and wine by opening a restaurant in Queenstown. During this time he acted as a consultant for the Discovery channel, working with the cast and crew to identify local areas and activities which would be suitable for inclusion in their series Adventure Central.

KJ and his team of associates have long term involvement in delivering quality tourism product to Queenstown and the Southern Lakes visitors.
