Stunning sea views-private-fully equipped-spotless

 Great bach in a great location, this place got everything you need for a successful escape 

Palm Rock - Relaxing & private with stunning views

 We had a great time: the house and garden are clean, well-appointed and beautiful. Lovely indoor-outdoor area. Jacqui and Greig were very responsive to my questions as we were planning our vacation, and I would come back in a second. 

Central Paihia Lodge

 Location and great view. 

Allure Lodge Apartment

 Thanks for an amazingly comfortable stay! Your apartment had everything we needed and more, and was so close to beaches, shops and scenic walks! Would definitely stay here again :)

The Captains Quarters

 I would strongly recommend this property; great location, great view and nice modern facilities. However you need to check there is no-one staying upstairs at the same time. There is no sound insulation between the two levels and any sounds from upstairs (footsteps, moving chairs, etc) can be heard loudly downstairs. Otherwise it's the perfect location for a stay in Paihia and good value for money. 

Affordable family fun!

 Spacious property with good activities in the shed to use at our leisure.
