History

Marlene and Anthony McAnulty are the owners and operators of the world famous Eden Park Bed and Breakfast. Marlene is a Christchurch girl and Anthony is an Aucklander. The couple married in 1987 and have owned the property for 19 years. Although the idea of developing a Bed and Breakfast was not in the original plan. Marlene is a mother and an incredible cook.

Anthony is an adventurer. He has been a sailor with his own yacht, a commercial gardener with 3000 tomatoes under glasshouse conditions and created a passenger transportation service in 1984.

Marlene and Anthony are the original founders of the Supershuttle franchise within New Zealand. When this company was successfully sold in 1998, Anthony and Marlene went travelling and ended up in the USA driving Big Rigs coast to coast for 5 years.

Returning to New Zealand, they reopened the Bed and Breakfast and then New Zealand won the hosting rights to the Rugby World Cup 2011. The Eden Park Rugby Stadium is within eyesight of this property and is well situated to be of assistance to the many travellers that wish to see this amazing sporting spectacle. We advise rugby followers to make reservations now or you will miss out.

The couple have since opened another two businesses that compliment their accommodation property. Supercare4u.com is a Total Mobility Passenger Transportation Service that offers transportation to the disabled in vehicles that carry wheelchair hoists. Anthony uses this service to provide a Meet and Greet Airport Transfer service for guests arriving at Auckland Airport. The Auckland Ghost Tours are operated by Anthony and offer the authentic stories of the Macabre and Bizarre as you are led by the Ghost Walker on a Lantern-Lit walking Tour around the most Historic Streets in Auckland City.
