 Great location, very tidy and had everything we needed. 

 Kowhai Apartment, 2 minutes from central Paihia

 The property was comfortable, light and airy. It was in a quiet location and very close to the sea. A lovely place to stay. 

Stunning sea views-private-fully equipped-spotless

 We loved the house! Spacious, comfortable and very well equipped! The highlight though is the location and the beautiful water views from the house and deck. We would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to be back ourselves sometime! Thank you!
