Very nice cabins , clean , cosy and with a nice view . Good kitchen facility & barbecue . Only con was the washing room facility. The washing machine did not clean the wash at all, and even though I put in the wash twice in the dryer , it still was not dry. All the machine cost 2 dollars...

We were travelling with an eco friendly, bird loving relation and this was a perfect spot for her. We stayed for 3 nights. The cabins are so cosy and comfortable with everything you could want - a kitchenette with lots of pots, pans, plates and cutlery, comfy beds, great bathroom and views to die for. The owners, Belinda and Peter,...

We were very impressed with our stay at Bay Cabinz and had a relaxing and enjoyable stay there. Sitting on the verandah we could listen to the birdsong whilst looking at the sea view. On our arrival Belinda welcomed us and even carried one of our rucksacks up to the cabin. When we noticed a small problem with ants in...

Cozy rooms with lots of character, not your run of the mill motel. Set among trees, the upstairs unit has a balcony with a good view of the paihia bay. The motel is 2 blocks inland and very quiet. Friendly manager.

We have been in the Bay Cabinz Motel in Dezember 2013. It was really great!!! We had no reservation in Paihia and every hotel had no vacancy. So we were very happy to get that cabin. It is a nice place and we were lucky to get the last one upstairs with a beautiful view. We had three wonderful days...

We needed very last minute accomodation after a disaster booking, and were lucky to find Bay Cabinz Motel. They answered the phone late evening and were very helpful and welcoming hosts. The rooms are beautiful, much nicer than a 'cabin', lovely and spacious, the ideal place to sit on the balcony and say ahhh. They are delightfully set into the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 5 nights in the Bay Cabinz Motel in Paihia. The individual cabins are delightful, each one having a deck so it is possible to eat outside. They are fully equipped and comfortable with laundry facilities onsite and a barbecue area in the complex. The owners were very welcoming and a wealth of information, they...

From the time we were warmly welcomed at reception to our first steps into the cabin, we felt right at home! Slept like a log every night! The cabins are airy with an illusion of space from the high ceilings. They are practical and have everything you need in the kitchenette to help reduce your holiday expenses. Clean, fresh yet...

Stayed at Bay Cabinz for two nights as part of our tour of NZ North Island in January. Its a great base for exploring Paihai and the Bay of Islands. On arrival the owner mentioned the Bay of Islands boat trips and got us booked on one which we can definitely recommend doing. The cabins are only a 5 minute...
