Sea, River and Bush Views

 Great views, private and quiet. Had everything we needed. Great outdoors. Easy access to Bay of Islands and further north. 

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. 

Koru Cottage - Pristine and newly renovated.

 Property had all mod cons. Towels and linen were included (as was cleaning charge), which was nice. Bay of Islands is a stunning location and Koru Cottage the perfect base. 

Amazing Views - Paihia Holiday Apartment
