Relax on the deck and watch tall ships, yachts, dolphins and (if you're lucky) orcas make their way up and down the channel in front of the house.

This property has been totally renovated with a new kitchen; extended living area; enlarged deck; new en-suite and walk in wardrobe; interior decorating and the list goes on and on. The large master bedroom has panoramic views with a newly renovated en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. It also has plenty of room for a travel cot and other baby paraphernalia if required.

The multimedia system is comprehensive and there is a Blue-Ray/DVD player should you wish to bring disks with you - a small selection of movies is available as well.

Paihia townsfolk are famous for their friendly and welcoming character. The town is a 10 minute walk (or 2 minute drive) from the house and all its amenities and restaurants are there to explore.

It is the perfect holiday home this "Ahuru Mowai" - a comfortable relaxing haven. The ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Bay of Islands and beyond.

Your Hosts, Gavin and Anita, will welcome you to this corner of paradise and hope you thoroughly enjoy your stay.

  • This is a great comfortable property

    This is a great comfortable property. Fantastic views. Overall this was a great stay. We requested to stay an extra night. Because of easy communication with the owners we were able to. Overall cleanliness was good except toilet rooms, we cleaned those when we got there. Probably just a one off since the owners had been out of country. Great place!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi Cheryll, Thank you for your kind words, we're so glad you had a good time. We are mortified that the bathrooms were not up to your standard. As you mentioned we were overseas during your stay and were using a cleaning service rather than doing this ourselves (as we would usually do). I will certainly pass this feedback on to the service for their review. Kind regards, Gavin.
