Paihia Beach House -  Central Paihia

 Perfect spot 

ANKAR HOUSE - Affordable Beachside Holiday

 Great place to stay. Perfect for the kids, the boat and us. The access down the side of the house is especially good if you have a large trailer boat like ours. We could back the boat right in and close the gate. Thanks 

Sunny Spacious Seaview Stunner

 Great location, fantastic property, very clean 

A great entertainer with awesome water views

 Beautiful house and deck, fitted out to a high standard with about everything you'd need. Great location - secluded yet close to Paihia centre. Oh yeah, and THE VIEW! Wow. Just amazing. A fantastic spot for a family holiday. 

Aio Accommodation, Bay of Islands

 Very cosy place with a fantastic view out on the deck. A great way to start the day. Extremely clean and well taken care of place with a very nice bathroom and comfortable bed. Couldn't really ask for more. Also the continental breakfast was a real treat with fresh fruits, bread, yogurt and fruit juice. 

 Kowhai Apartment, 2 minutes from central Paihia

 Delightful apartment, beautifully prepared for guests. Nice quiet location just out of town.
