Beautiful Mediterranean looking motel with a well equipped kitchen and close to the bay. The managers were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We even got free wifi (500mb) although it didn't work on our last night.

... Hole in the Rock'. The cruise was a few hours long and we saw loads of wild dolphins swimming along with the boat. We cruised past about 11 of the 150 islands in the Bay of Islands collective and got to have an hour break on the beautiful Otehei bay. We finished off the day with a proper beach dinner of fish and chips for dinner at Vinnie's ...
... walk round the long way we both climbed a small rock face to reach the top where the monument stood. We arrived back at the cottage exhausted but happy and after a quick lunch headed into KeriKeri. We paid a visit to an old store before getting more wine and heading off to Paihia for Daryl's Dinner Cruise. We arrived a bit early and met another couple called Steve and Nicole who had recently moved to New Zealand from South ...
