We fell in love with the beautiful Bay of Islands while on holiday with our children. We love the sea and bush, and are enjoying life in the small, friendly community of Opua. We have travelled extensively, usually visiting friends and family in Europe and Australia, but other trips have included campervanning in Northern Territory and Western Australia. Ladis's passions are his garden, cooking, fishing and feeding the flock of quails which visit us from the bush. Sue cannot live without a good book, and good social life. She is treasurer of the Bay of Islands Travel Club, does aquarobics, belongs to a book club and is a regular at the local quiz night at the Cruising Club. She runs a Spanish evening class.
Running the house as a B&B is fun. We have made some good friends, and enjoyed learning from our guests, while making them as comfortable as possible. People sometimes come for a night, then ask if they can stay for week.
The Bay of Islands does not have a local bus service, so if you arrive without your own transport we can pick you up and drop you off at your arrival destination, and at your tour pickup points for a nominal fee, which will be calculated on the mileage incurred.
