Visited here with friends as part of a walking group. Shopped around for pricing on booking.com and found a good rate discount at $380 for three nights. The motel is old however it is being maintained in very good condition, Immaculate as far as cleanliness. Staff friendly. The King size bed very comfortable. Cutlery and crockery was limited to two...

I'm on my last night at the casa Bella motel. We have stayed three days and found this motel completely adequate and very good value. Check in was a breeze and we were given a room towards the back of the lot with its own dedicated park out front. The room is clean and well appointed if quite dated and...

We enjoyed our stay, room spacious, bed very comfortable. Kitchenette very well equpped with more than enough to enable some self catering if you wish. Best of all, a very modern light and bright bathroom, great supply of hot water and powerful water pressure for shower. A fan supplied for cooling, maybe air con could be a useful addition, as...

Spent a few nights at Case Bella in Pahia. Quiet area, friendly hosts, comfy and spacious room. Free use of a kayak which was great fun around the Bay. Host even wheeled it to and from the beach for us. All you need in the unit for a self catering holiday. One block from the beach and only a short...

Spent three nights here. Motel is very clean and tidy. It is in a quiet street, but an easy walk to cafes etc. Our son loved the pool and going for a paddle in the kayak. Would return and stay again if we get the chance.

My husband and I together with four other friends were very pleased with this property and Gary was extremely generous and allowed us to leave one day earlier than we had booked for which was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he gave us some very good advice with regards tours etc. Thank you Gary for...

Our 1 bedroom unit had an unusual but important feature- a part of the wall between the small lounge and bedroom had been cut out enabling TV to be see either in the bedroom or lounge. This Motel has an appealing swimming pool and guests may also use the tennis court next door. Location is just off the main drag...

Totally stoked to have stayed here for two nights and wished it could have been forever. Gary and his wife were beyond accomodating and the friendliest people you will ever meet. Rooms really nice and clean. Pool and spa a nice and relaxing way to end your day. Kayak hire is free and a great way to explore to bays...

Stayed at this property while attending the Bay of Islands Food and Wine Festival - it was a little walk away from the main centre but very handy all the same. It was clean and tidy and very reasonably priced - proprietors very welcoming and friendly and I would return.
