We were looking for a room with a view within easy driving distance of Paihia. Norman and Shelagh were both there to meet / greet and check us in. What a lovely character Norman is with a fascinating background as a musical entertainer originally from the city that produced the Beatles.
We were offered a choice of apartments and on different levels and opted for one where we could enjoy the sunrise over the Bay of Islands with our heads still on our pillows.
Very kindly Norm dropped us into Paihia so that we could drink and dine before a taxi back.
All in all a wonderful experience with great tips on what to see and explore in the area. The boat trip and exploration of the Bay of Islands are a must. A visit to romantic Russell is rewarding. His restaurant recommendations were all A1.
