Arrived early evening to a lovely greeting from Barbara that matched the fantastic scenery of the Bay of Islands. Loved the motel. Great to sit on the veranda and watch the evening sun setting over the mountains - while sipping a glass of NZ wine. Barbara could not have been more helpful and arranged a trip for us as well as providing us with information about the area and its history. Could not have had a better start to our tour and we would love to come back and spend more time in this wonderful area. Bali Hai is well named and it was a great introduction to NZ and laid the foundation for a fabulous few weeks.
