Peter and Karen MacDonald are born and bred South Islanders who choose to call the AAA Marlin Motel, Picton home.
They have run the motel since 1998, and enjoyed a love affair with the Marlborough Sounds region for many years previously.
"It's so diverse here and the area has become a magnet for people from all over the world who love and appreciate life," they say.
"We want people to feel they've had a warm, friendly stay in their home away from home, and leave feeling they've had a real holiday."
They are both actively involved in the Picton Sounds area, providing a good up to date awareness of activities, changes and people to see.
Pete and Karen, look forward to meeting you.
