Jon and Angela moved from Wellington into Parkside Motel in February 2012 to take up the management of the motel. They moved with their 2 children who are now attending local schools and becoming engaged in local sports teams.
Angela had previously been employed in health related, hospital, academic and quality assurance roles. Jon had had a long career in the Public Service in the property sector that involved on-going contact with tenants, other property owners and property service providers. The skills learned in both Angela and Jon’s past careers are highly valuable in the motel business. Although both new to the motel business Jon and Angela are enjoying the changes of career enormously.
By experiencing many of the attractions available in the Nelson Tasman region since moving to Richmond Jon and Angela can recommend a range of activities to their guests with confidence. This includes adventure and family-oriented activities.
Both are passionate about the region, the variety, quality and accessibility of the numerous attractions available and ensuring that they provide a quality, safe and value for money service to their guests.
