 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. 

Bridgewater Apt  - VB

 Really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Excellent facilities and very clean. Communication with the property manager was easy. Would definately stay again. 

Allure Lodge Apartment

 The Apartment was GREAT! Clean and comfortable (we were a group of 6) with superb views across the Bay. Lots to do and walking distance to all that Paihia has to offer. We gladly recommend the Allure Apartment to others and would like to get back there ourselves someday. 

The Haven in central Paihia with stunning views

 A wonderful location. Easy walk to the beach and all the wharf attractions. The house itself was lovely and roomy. Space galore! The sun room is awesome. Throw open the sliding windows and enjoy a breakfast with a view to die for! Very tidy. Modern and spacious. We're certainly hoping to go back there again in the future. The air conditioning broke down while we stayed there but the manager was on to it very quickly to resolve the issue. We will return! 

The Outlook - Stunning Sea views

 The house is beautiful. Fantastic views and amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 

 Kowhai Apartment, 2 minutes from central Paihia
