The Captains Quarters

 View, beaches and all Paihia surrondings..Great location for holidays 

The Captains Quarters

 Really nice view from the balcony. clean and tidy. will come back 

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. 

Captains Quarters Upper Deck

 A lovely property, spacious with all the mod cons with fantastic views. The perfect pad when holidaying in the Bay of Islands. We will be back!
