Palm House Bay of Islands

 This was our favourite bach amongst all the other bachs. It was spacious had 2 baths and toilets and a nice backyard and green open space for the kids to play. Will definitely recommend this place as its very near all shops and tourist spots.Wifi is also available. 

Holiday Home in the Sunny Bay of Islands

 Thanks for a fun five days in "The Winterless North". The bach is perfect with everything you need for a great holiday. The property is well fenced so your children and pets will be safe. Well placed to explore Paihia, Waitangi and Russell. We caught and consumed a fair number of Snapper (try Tapeka Point over the water in Russell). 

Sunny Spacious Seaview Stunner

 Beautiful clean modern house with great views over Paihia and easy walk to the township and waterfront. 

Walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants

 Wish we had had longer to stay in this home. Top level is great design and has lovely atmosphere; there was plenty of space where everyone could relax and dine. Price very reasonable for this area and appreciated the use of linen in the cost. Driveway a little daunting at first, but no stairs for elderly to climb once at the house, so all good and the views are great. Fairy lights in the hedge outside the dining area were magical for the 4 year old (and her Mum). Wash. machine not in operation?
