Paihia, Bay of Islands

 Lovely accommodation with all the comforts of home. What a beautiful setting! Loved sitting out on the deck. Spotlessly clean...beds all had crisp white sheets with towels and soap arranged befitting hotel accommodation. Perfectly situated close to town. We did so enjoy our stay and our overseas family member was suitably impressed. What a pity that we were only a party of four as the home is well suited for a larger group. Chester and Louise were a delight to get to know. Thank you!
