ANKAR HOUSE - Affordable Beachside Holiday

 Excellent accommodation for a family holiday. Modern house with everything needed available. helpful local owners. Plenty of space for the kids and the nearby waterhole was a hit. 

Paihia, Bay of Islands

 Location perfect, beach very close, close to ferrys township and everything about the location was great! Chester & Louise are lovely people, we will we back!! 

Paihia Beach House -  Central Paihia

 Loved the view and proximity to town. Beautiful new home and kitchen very well equipped. Great to have a barbecue on the deck. Could do with a few fans for hot nights and/or some insect screens so that you can open windows at night. Had a very relaxing couple of days. Thank you Mike. 

Secluded Waterfront Lodge

 Fantastic venue, large spacious house and outdoor area. Sean, owner was very helpful and we had brilliant weather which made it a perfect stay. Thanks so much. 

Self contained studio with quiet bush views

 We had a fantastic stay. A lovely spot with great views. A lot of thought and effort has gone into the décor etc. and it makes it a lovely place to stay. 

Paihia Beach House -  Central Paihia

 Great location just 4 - 5 minutes walk from the town But so secluded you could be miles away from anyone!! Large and modern property with a super kitchen and large balcony with bbq. A great experience had by all 7 in our group and 1 baby!!
