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. 

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!!

Quiet and peaceful at a central location.

 Great place for families - our boys loved it. Space for kids to run around and board games to keep them busy in cupboard under microwave. Neat, tidy. Beautiful view. Quiet, private location but a short pleasant walk to all the action. Would definitely recommend! 

The Captains Quarters

 Really nice view from the balcony. clean and tidy. will come back 

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
