We stayed the last two nights of our holiday at Baystay. It's a great place! Very quiet, lovely views, comfortable beds and delicious breakfasts. Niek and Rob were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The free wireless internet was a bonus!

Nick & Rob were very helpful and accommodating. Due to weather/ flooding/landslips we had an extra unscheduled stay but that was no great hardship. The breakfasts were excellent and the views from the deck were stunning.

This was such a find. We were anxious because we travel by bus but were immediately reassured by Nick that either he or Rob would pick us up. Every day we stayed they dropped us off in town-being out of town was a small price to pay for all we received. Great food, special evening scones with lemoncello, and spirited...

After arriving in Auckland this was the first B&B we stayed at (3 nights). Rob and Nick are really caring hosts, give lots of good advice and prepare a delicious breakfast. The room we stayed in is very modern and comfortable and - facing the same side as the living room/kitchen - offers a nice view down to a river....

We stayed for 2 nights in January and enjoyed wonderful home cooked breakfasts, lovely fluffy towels, comfortable bed and immaculate room. Rob and Nick very good hosts and gave very good advice as to things to do, particularly enjoyed the walk from Haruru Falls to Paihia. Excellent, thank you.

Thank you for staying with us! The (easy) walk along the river, trough mangrove and bush is an absolute must in our opinion, great to hear you liked it to!

This is the second time we have stayed with Nick and Rob at Baystay. They are the finest hosts,paying great care and attention to every detail. Nothing is too much trouble. Their home is modern, clean, bright and comfortable. Near enough to Paihia, but far enough away for peacefulness.

This was the best B&B of the whole holiday. We were made to feel very welcome and all the local knowledge was great. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Just the right balance - friendly and helpful but still had your own space. Would recommend at least a 3 night break, we stayed 4 nights and would have liked longer....
