Bayswater is perfect as a family holiday rental home - perfect for large families or two families holidaying together. Our comfortable max is 8 people but we have an extra couple of single beds available at an extra charge of $50 per person per night. The published House Rate is for 8 people.

Bayswater is not appropriate for "stag parties" and the like!

Paihia waterfront location makes this holiday home one of the best in the bay. It’s only a 5 minute flat walk to Paihia township and wharf which is the tourism hub of the Bay of Islands.

The beach is across the road.

The house has two levels with the top level comprising open plan kitchen, dining, bathroom and lounge all leading on to a huge deck with pleasant views down to the waterfront. This level also has the perfect bar where tall tales and true can be discussed after a full day in the bay.

Downstairs there are four double bedrooms, master ensuite plus a lounge area and another bathroom. Sleep 4 couples in the bedrooms.

Perfect for a large family for even two families.

There is off-street parking for three cars .

The big plus for this holiday home is that once ensconced you don’t have to drive anywhere – everything in Paihia is a few minutes level walk away!

In front of the house is Paihia’s best known seafood restaurant – Only Seafood – great location if you feel like dining out and don’t want to drive anywhere.

  • Bayswater is ideally situated in central Paihia

    Bayswater is ideally situated in central Paihia. As we were 8 adults travelling in 2 cars it was very convenient. Parking for both cars and also walking distance to the shops, restaurants and ferries made it easy for everyone to go their own way each day. Had a lovely swim at the beach opposite the house. The kitchen was well laid out and extremely well equipped. Outdoor seating for everyone and nice comfy lounge seating inside. We loved the bar. 4 bathrooms in all meant everyone was happy.

  • Great location with a restaurant in front and walking distance to Paihia

    Great location with a restaurant in front and walking distance to Paihia. Ideal for family/friends group with four bedrooms with queen/double beds and three bathrooms but can easily sleep more. Able to have an enjoyable time together.

  • Beautiful house! Amazing location

    Beautiful house! Amazing location...every morning I would open the sliding door & you could smell the sand/sea water, beautiful view from the balcony. 5 mins walk to the township, 5 mins drive to Waitangi, 5 mins to Haururu falls...I fully enjoyed my stay & I have recommend this place to my family/friends. Me & my family will see you soon :). Thank you Chester & Louise you both welcome me & my families with open arms.
