Sea, River and Bush Views

 We loved the stunning views from the living area. Also a lovely and quiet location, with a short drive from town. Highly recommend. 

Quiet and peaceful at a central location.

 We loved our stay at Totara Tree Cottage. Nestled amongst the tree-tops (worth the steep drive) the cosy cottage is only minutes walk from Paihia township + wharf. The double bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher etc. Only grey area (if that) was the SKY TV. One has to take own decoder - which we did - but didn't use as didn't want to interfere with existing settings :- ) We'd definitely re-visit. Thanks to the host who was extremely helpful. 

Affordable family fun!

 Lovely quiet spot, clean and tidy and comfortable for 5 of us.

 awesome views 

Affordable family fun!

 Close to beach and hiking trial. 

 Kowhai Apartment, 2 minutes from central Paihia

 Well situated,quiet accommodation, clean and bright furnishing plus a well appointed kitchen. The private courtyard out the back complete with beanbag chairs, outdoor dining table and barbecue was a real boon. We recommend the Paihia-Opua walkway just nearby - you can do part of it in either direction.
