We have just come back from a great family holiday here. The pool was great for Mr 11, Mr 9 and Miss 7 - they lived in it! Plus as a parent - I could easily watch them from a sun lounger so I was also getting a break. Lots of great activities - we went fishing off Opua Wharf...

A real find! Perfectly located, quiet yet within 5 mins walk of the centre and literally across the road from the beach. Really well appointed apartment, spotlessly clean, cosy and comfortable - really couldn't fault any of it. The bikes, kayaks, pool and hot tub were a real bonus and we made full use of them! Both Sasha and Lara...

Busby Manor is a gem located across the road from the water and close to the heart of Paihia. The accommodation is well maintained and the manager Sharon is very helpful in pointing you the right way with tourist activities, restaurants or whatever. Can do lost within a short walk.

The pool and spa were popular and the BBQs were well maintained. We had a one bedroom apartment with fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Not huge in size...

Given lots of information about things to do and places to go and when we opened the door of our Unit it was spotless despite the fact that the facility is not new. Chocolates in a dish beside...

Sharon and her team provide a wonderful overall holiday experience - from prior to checkin right through to the checkout - nothing is too much bother. The rooms are beautifully kept, so clean and we just love the flowers and chocolates left in the room for us on arrival, Busby Manor is right on the seafront and the village and...
