Black Rose Limousine Hire Guides

Ken Withington - Owner/Operator, Driver, Guide
Born in Invercargill, I decided to spread my wings and move to sunny Hawke’s Bay in 1982. I have been here ever since and developed my entrepreneurial skills through various successful projects including creating Black Rose Limousine hire. Thus, my experience from these ventures gives me a unique insight into the mechanics of how Hawke’s Bay has become one of the most popular areas to visit. I have great knowledge of Hawke’s Bay’s interesting agricultural and horticultural history and have my own livestock portfolio including calves, lambs, pigs, chickens and ducks. A new shearing shed is to be completed for farmyard tours and sheep shearing.
I also own and run Kaiapo Rd Auto Repairs.

Born in Gisborne, I decided to spread my wings and move to sunny Hawke’s Bay when I was 10 …..days old! I thought, "why waste time in the second best place in the world when you can live in the BEST!"
Wanting to see the world, I ventured from Hawke’s Bay in 1994 and spent 2 years travelling around Western Europe, then 14 years in the capital, Wellington. I moved back to Hawke’s Bay in 2008 and immediately started helping get Black Rose Limousine hire off the ground. I have comprehensive knowledge of not only Hawkes Bay’s amazing history, but in-depth knowledge of the 1931 Napier Earthquake, Hastings and Napier Art Deco history, Maori mythology and the many interesting statues that are situated throughout the area. I thrive on sharing my knowledge and thoughts with those that choose the Black Rose and almost without exception, the experience becomes the highlight of their visit. I enjoy providing an educational and insightful Hawke’s Bay tour that is often scattered wth a touch of humour.
