Quiet and peaceful at a central location.

 The location was great. The place is clean, would take a family easily, and has everything there that you need for a stay. We found the Internet connection highly variable; but if you want a break maybe the Internet is part of what you get away from. There is also a good outdoor space. It was a real treat to stay so i would highly recommend it 

Stunning sea views-private-fully equipped-spotless

 The Beach House in Paihia is just a dream! Stunning views from anywhere in the house but best viewed from the front deck at sunset whilst enjoying some of the fresh local produce and beautiful wines available within walking distance. This home has everything you could ever need including Wifi and a great collection of CD's to relax too! Clean, spotless & well cared for. The owners were simply fantastic and made us feel at home. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Paihia, best holiday ever! 

Sea, River and Bush Views

 Great views, private and quiet. Had everything we needed. Great outdoors. Easy access to Bay of Islands and further north. 

Affordable family fun!

 We loved this cottage, was superbly equipped and very clean. It's position so close to the beach was ideal and it was so peaceful. Would highly recommend to couples or families. We will definitely return here when back in New Zealand. 

Amazing Views - Paihia Holiday Apartment

 Fantastic location, right on the water and in the heart of Paihia. Great apartment, very modern - couldn't ask for more!

Affordable family fun!

 Beautiful location, close to the beach I like the fact that it felt like a home away from home??
