Your hosts, 
Greg and Suzi

“Moving back to Northland and the Bay of Islands from Auckland with our two daughters in 2001 to join my parents in the motel was a great lifestyle decision for Greg and I. Our whole focus has been to provide a first-class accommodation experience with the warmth and strength of family involvement. We are well supported by our great little team who do a great job in greeting our guests and welcoming you to our home” -- Suzi
