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

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

 Overall positive. Bedrooms, bedding etc were good. Cleanliness ok, though spring clean in order, downstairs BBQ very dirty Lacked abit in kitchen items, bowls, pots and airing rack broken Dining/lounge area samll for 7 people when no access to the top deck Good central location, easy stroll to town, beach and Waitangi 

 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. 

 The bach was very dirty - dead flies on ceilings and walls, mould on utensils in the kitchen, extractor fan was dripping in grease, old loaf of bread left in one of the cupboards. It had obviously not been cleaned properly for some time!Description does not mention the steep steps you need to go down, which were unsuitable for our elderly parents and for carrying a baby.The wardrobes in the master bedroom were impossible to open.No lights in the hallway.No wardrobe in one of the bedrooms. Awful! 

  •  After we had received so many of your phone calls, we decided to visit the property as things did not seem to ad up, given that we have had this property for 3 years, your complaints seemed very out of the normal. When I inspected the property it was clear to me that you must have been staying somewhere else. All your complaints and there seem to be many were taken seriously, but come on did you really expect the Hilton for the tiny price you paid. BTW the stairs are mentioned on bookabach.
