About Villa Della Rosa Bed and Breakfast
Nori and Detlef Hasenbein are the third owners of Villa della Rosa Bed and Breakfast. Having been born in Germany, the mountain, and especially the Mediterranean style of Villa della Rosa, appealed to them and in 2007 they purchased the Villa as a way to ‘retire’ early and get out of the rat race of retail shops. The first year was predominantly spent in bringing the Villa up to a 4.5 star AAA tourism standard. All rooms were completely stripped and redecorated with new beds, furniture and fittings, new floors and of course new paint. Detlef still enjoys tinkering around the house and garden and making everything look perfect. Currently the courtyard is getting a complete overhaul, with new tiles, balustrades and Tuscan paint. Nori (with the occasional help of a backpacker) is keeping the interior spotless and the edible garden lush and green. Depending on season, guests can indulge in exotic fruits for breakfast and the eggs in the cooked breakfast option are from happy chooks running around in the backyard. Villa della Rosa is a hosted accommodation, which suits Nori and Detlef well, as they are both very welcoming and easy going and are happy to either mingle with their guests or give them all the privacy they need. Detlef’s other passion is tourism marketing, so if you have any questions about any of the tourism operators or attractions on the mountain, just ask him or check out his Discover Tamborine map booklet, now in its 6th edition. Nori just developed a brand new workshop, helping new and existing accommodation providers to make their business more profitable and enjoyable. A lifetime of business experience plus specific B&B experience in a neat little package.
