We stayed for a week here and found it extremely comfortable. We were met by the friendly owner and given details of all the local attractions. The units were superbly equipped with much more and much better appliances, crockery and equipment than the normal units. The four 2 bedroom units are all separate so no issues with noisy neighbours. Apparently...

Booked here due to good reviews and wasn't disappointed. It was just as described by previous reviewers, clean and comfortable and really great value for money. Our family of 3 was very comfortable in the warm two bedroom cottage. Lovely views over rural Haruru and only a few minutes drive from Paihia

We booked 3 of the 4 cottages over the Easter period for a family holiday and they were perfect. The children were able to go between cottages and the adjacent play ground area in a safe enviroment. The family discussed the accommodation and none of us could find fault. We found the cottages clean and containing everything we needed to...

We stayed for a week at Sunseeker Cottages. We were glad to be in the quiet location of Haruru Falls just 5 minutes from Paihia. If you have a car it's easy travelling distance to Russell (on the ferry), Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Kerikeri. There are plenty of places to eat in Paihia. We tried the RSA and had a...

My husband and I stayed at Sunseekers Cottages for a long stay at the end of last year (6 weeks). We are in the hospitality industry and just needed some time to relax, bbq and enjoy the clean, comfortable surrondings found at Sunseekers. We were able to easily keep in touch with friends & family via the internet, watch movies,...

We needed two bedroom accommodation (2 couples holidaying together) , which was a little difficult to find in Paihia. We found and booked this place online as all the photos looked fine, but we were a little worried as the price seemed too good and we've been caught before with websites not showing the true picture. However, I was tempted...

We found this lovely place through the owners of the Ash Grove Motel which is next door. We had been very disappointed by our original booking in Paihia and decided not to stay. The two bedroom cottage was a godsend and as different from the first place as could be and all at the same price. Jill was so welcoming...

Great value immaculate cozy cottages. The only down side (plus for us) is it is 5 mins out of town, quiet and peaceful. Great warm friendly service our hosts could not do enough for us. the cottages are superb and great value. Lovely hot and strong showers, something we haven't had often on our trip to date. Well stocked kitchen...
