Unwind in Kowhai Apartment set in a quiet cul-de-sac in Te Haumi Bay, next to a reserve of mature native trees.

You will be 2 minutes drive from central Paihia and all that "the bay" has to offer or you may decide to take a leisurely 20 minute walk around the water's edge. Paihia is one of NZ"s premiere tourist destinations and provides visitors with a huge number of activities to do all year round. Many on, under and above the water, one of the most popular getting you up-close to the resident dolphins.

Award-winning Waitangi Treaty Grounds, the birthplace of our nation, are within walking distance of Paihia and provide excellent insight into Maori history and culture and the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Historic, quaint Russell, once the capital of NZ and mission settlement, is just a 10 minute ferry ride across the bay. Don't leave out the Kerikeri Basin, another mission settlement with its famous Stone Store, 20 minutes by car

Stunning Hokianga across on the west coast and Cape Reinga, of special spiritaul significance to Maori, at the very tip of the North Island are both great day trips worth making time for.

Your accommodation is made up of two bedrooms, bathroom with separate toilet. and a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. A sunny, garden courtyard with BBQ, lounger and alfresco dining setting for four provides a relaxing, private outdoor space. You can be sure the apartment will have everything you need for a self-catering stay including extras like herb garden, pantry basics, well-stocked library and hammock.

Your hosts are Colin and Trish who own and operate just this one apartment. They work hard to make every guest who stays with them, feel they receive value for money and have the very best experience possible. They will be on hand to greet you and make sure you are settled in. They are happy to help plan and book any tours or activities if you require.

Breakfast provisions can be arranged

  • The apartment was beautifully set-up and the outdoor area was amazing

    The apartment was beautifully set-up and the outdoor area was amazing. Thank you so much for a lovely few days. Even though the location is not central, it worked well for us as we had a car so could get around really easily.

  • Lovely apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay

    Lovely apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is small, but perfectly formed. Gorgeous courtyard at the rear is the standout. A little bit away from the hustle and bustle of holiday season Paihia (a plus for us) and great value (especially considering what friends paid for a hotel in town at the same time). I do agree with a previous reviewer that the shower could do with some work, but this is a minor grumble. Very much enjoyed our time here.

  • Property NOT suitable for young children - had to have our toddler...

    Property NOT suitable for young children - had to have our toddler sleep with us as the kids room had a door that he could open out to the courtyard area Described as private - not so - flat is downstairs to the owners house & courtyard is overlooked! Not quiet - you can hear them walking around. Stated about a pan, unusable to begin with, attempted to clean, however unable to. Had to use BBQ for all cooking! Shower unusable - either scalding or ice cold, this changed randomly.
