Unwind in Kowhai Apartment set in a small cul-de-sac in Te Haumi Bay, next to a reserve of 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 or over the hill. Paihia is one of NZ"s premiere tourist destinations and provides visitors with a range of experiences for visitors. 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.

Set up as a traditional kiwi-style holiday house

in the ground floor of a 70's house, Kowhai Apartment will have everything you need for a self-catering stay including extras like herb garden, pantry basics, in-door games, library

Your hosts are Colin and Trish who own and operate just this one apartment. They work hard to make their guests feel they receive value for money and have the very best experience possible.
