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

  • Very clean, nice walk to town along the beach

    Very clean, nice walk to town along the beach. Well stocked kitchen facilities. Owners live above but you wouldn't know it - not intrusive. Nice patio out back and off street parking. Will return on our next trip!

    Lovely place to stay, close enough to everything in Paihia but far away enough to stay peaceful. Courtyard is amazing and the place itself is clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The personalised 'Kia Ora' welcome cube thing was a nice touch :)

  • The property was clean and well equipped

    The property was clean and well equipped. There were helpful extras in the kitchen and sky TV was a real plus as the Australian open was on during our stay. Trish and Colin were most receptive to a few of our updating suggestions. The location is 15 mins from town center, on foot, also a great plus! We enjoyed our stay.

  • Lovely peaceful location, tucked away from road

    Lovely peaceful location, tucked away from road. Courtyard garden was great to relax in and BBQ and the passion fruits growing an added bonus :) Nice evening walks into Paihia town , only 15 mins away and the nearby beach is nice and quiet and on your doorstep. Beds were very comfy, internet and Sky TV a bonus. Would recommend staying here.
