Meet the team

Judy & DeanAt Motel Villa del Rio enjoy true Whangarei hospitality with your New Zealand born hosts. Villa del Rio operates as a motel by Dean and Judy Weatherall with the help of Paige their youngest daughter,  occasionally their eldest daughter Renee and their two cats Candy and Louie. Dean and Judy took over the lease of Motel Villa del Rio on the 29 January 2014.

Dean has come from a dairy farming background and Judy has come from a sales and administration background. Both from a small country town - Wellsford. Paige started university in February 2016 and is studying Psychology. Renee is at Northtec and where she is studying visual arts and both help out when needed.

For us personally it is our guests that make owning the business such a pleasure. We meet such a diverse mix of interesting people from all over New Zealand and the world. We enjoy providing our guests with friendly personal service and are happy to assist you with any information you may need.
