Paihia Beach House -  Central Paihia

 The house was lovely, brand new and conveniently located. A glimpse of ocean through the trees, great deck, comfortable sleeping--but for a bit of noise floating up, we felt removed from the Paihia hubbub. Thanks for an easy and comfortable stay.

Paihia Beach House -  Central Paihia

 We loved the location, close enough to walk to town but far enough away to be a little more private. The view of the ocean through the trees from the deck was stunning. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house!
