About Us

Our names are Phil Desmond and Maureen Rabone.  We have owned our lovely Motel for 8 years now and we enjoy living in Paihia in the Bay of Islands after moving North from Auckland. 

We have both had backgrounds in the services industry, Phil with rental vehicles and the motor vehicle industry, Maureen with 20 years in the banking industry.  We are members of the local Swordfish Club as well as the Ex-servicemens Club and the local Business Association.  We have found that we both love looking after our guests and hopefully they enjoy staying with us in this beautiful area.

  • Our quiet central location
