The view. It’s all about the view. OK it was up a few steps to get to our cabin, but with a glass of wine on the decking overlooking the Bay of Islands it was nothing for a priceless view. The accommodation itself was spacious, modern and super clean with all you want for a comfortable stay. The location is...

Stayed 3 nights here. I selected it for the view over Paihia and the bay. Villa 4 had a view from the balcony and kitchen and also was more private than some of the villas. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils and clean. Full service not provided eg making beds, towels changed each day and rubbish removed only. The...

The cabins are centrally located in Pahia, some have views of the sea ours you had to be tall & stretch your neck. The cabins get very hot in summer, the large ceiling fan helps but a/c would be better. If you leave the windows & sliding door open to get a breeze blowing through also helps but your then...

Had pre booked two cabins with sea views as part of a road trip around North Island so unsure what to expect. " no worries" it was brilliant - modern yet quirky beautifully clean and really well appointed with microwave, toaster, kettle , fridge and loads of crockery etc. Not "serviced" but bins emptied, beverages replenished and towels changed daily....

This is an unusal motel set into a steep hillside so that there is a walk up to most of the cabins. However the sea view and charming cabins are worth it. The main part is a studio with a separate bedroom. As a couple staying here we found this useful to stow our suitcases. It is a short walk...

Belinda and Pete have not overlooked anything to make a stay in their roomy chalets a memorable occasion. Situated amongst a sloping tumble of lush plantings, the setting is picture perfect ...with all widows offering a different exciting vista. Our accomodation had that fresh well looked after feel with a fully appointed kitchen having all the tools of trade. Tea,...

We have been placed in the highest cottage, which is nice. The room is not big but has everything - a queen bed and a small room with single bed. The motel is on the hill so that it is quiet. But it is just adjacent to the Paihia School which is next to the central of Paihia. Staying here...

Have stayed here a few times over the years. Always return as the service is good and the cabins are alway kept in excellent condition as is the whole property. Great place to stay to be able to walk to the shops for groceries or eating out or walking distance to the wharf if you want to get a ferry....
