We stayed in the private sea view apartment. (Yes it has steps but only a few.) Lovely location which is handy to Paihia and all the activities that your budget can stretch too. The apartment was clean and versatile. Utensils, Cooking and cleaning appliances were all of high quality making it easy to prep a plater and tidy up after....

We came here for the last two weeks of our 8 week New Zealand vacation. The weather crashed for our first 5 days then improved. Garth and Anne were very welcoming and helpful. When we checked in Garth took us through his visitor guide collection and had many helpful suggestions. We stayed in the downstairs of their home in a...

We really enjoyed our brief stay in the tree house. Lovely views over the bay from the deck. My suggestion would be to leave some of your luggage in your car and just take up what you need for your stay as it is a bit of a struggle with big cases. Garth however who is obviously very fit was...

We had 4 glorious nights in the Tree House. Very comfortable and well equipped. We would recomend this accomodation so long as you can climb steps. You can't get to a 'Tree House' without going up. The Bay of islands is a great spot to rest up in NZ.

Great position just 10 min from the beach in a secluded part of town. We were in the Tree House and as the name suggests was surrounded by a wonderful garden of trees, must point out this is not for the faint hearted or anyone with walking problems as it is quite a climb up to the entrance from the...

Couldn't have asked for a better place to end my trip to NZ. Solo traveller but enough room for at least two. I had the chance to stay in the garden apartment, where fresh flowers were in bloom in a well-kept area. Full kitchen, washer, and queen bed to enjoy. Really lovely apartment owners, local Kiwis, they have made this...

Fantastic 10 days in the Treehouse. Solo traveller but would suit a couple. Plenty of space and a view to die for. A few minutes out of town and up a hill so not for the feint hearted this accommodation somehow combines seclusion with being fairly central to Paihia. Garth a brilliant and knowledgeable host always ready to advise on...

Our first 'proper' stop (after one night in Auckland) of our 3-week self-drive tour of NZ. Inside the apartment itself is very light, spacious and comfortable with everything we could possibly need. Outside the apartment had its own private patio within a beautiful rain-forest garden and views across to the pacific. Breakfast was included by means of a plentiful variety...

My husband and I are +65 year old Canadians touring New Zealand using the public trains and buses so we need to be mindful of the location of our accommodation. Garth offered to pick us up at the bus stop so that made our decision quite easy. He also helped us out by dropping us of at the I-site. Paihia...

A unique peaceful and private self contained unit with a stunning view (treehouse). A short walk to Paihia centre, shops, restaurants and beach. Very welcoming and friendly hosts. We will be back ! From Shane and Sharleen in Taranaki 😄🏍☀️
