So who are we? We are born and bred locals and actually both from Brightwater (just past Richmond), but we have also lived in Auckland, Zambia, Italy and Hong Kong, have been married for 26 years and have 3 children. Jess is 20 and going to Massey in Wellington, studying Journalism and is about to go to the USA on an exchange program for 6 months. Luca is 18 and in his last year of school and trying to make the big decisions of what to do when he leaves school. Georgia is 13 and our mini manager in training, loves the motels and being in charge if she can, and she has just started college.
Chris is a rugby coach, all the places we have been, Chris has been coaching, basically Chris has coached professionally off and on for maybe 20 of the last 30 years. Rugby has been very good to us, given us an amazing life and has been a great way to see the world and live in and experience some different cultures.
Sharon has an accounting background, had a retail craft shop in Richmond for 8 years, and has now retrained as a life coach, also being a wife, mother and travelling the world with Chris and family.
Deciding to go into the motel industry was a planned move, it was time to do something together and could see that together our strengths really compliment each other and we are living it, all though its busy and always something that needs doing, we are loving this new life, and it really doesn't feel like work at all, even all the cleaning and washing!
