Palm Rock - Relaxing & private with stunning views

 Wow, what a wonderful place. Very neat and tidy house with the most spectacular views of both the sea and bush. Nice quiet neighbourhood.

 Nice and clean. Quite! Nice view! 

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. 

Palm Rock - Relaxing & private with stunning views

 Fantastic house very comfortable and nicely decorated. Lovely views to the beach and also the bush. Had everything you would need and more, very well equipped. Lovely couple to deal with. House was very clean and welcoming. Would rent again if we are in the Bay of Islands. 

Verde - Comfortable Home Close to Beach

 We enjoyed the well organised kitchen, the good quality linen on the beds, and little extras such as clothes washing powder, toilet paper, that was already there. The stairs are a bit creaky in the night for loo visits, but that added to,the fun! We enjoyed listening to the bird life and being surrounded by bush and trees. 

Paihia centrally located

 Great bush location. Away from the crowds but within walking distance from the action. Great house to stay with two couples.
