          Its a good place if you just want to go with friends or extended family. great price for a 2 bedroom apartment. Friendly staff and just walk away from main beaches and restaurants. Paihia is a beautiful place, so go and checkout yourself.

          2 bedroom room was amazing. Kitchen was exactly what we were hoping for. Shower was delightful. Great location away from the crowds but still very close to tourism. Would definitely go back, especially for the low price for the area!

          We enjoyed our stay over two nights. We felt comfortable and enjoyed the proximity to shops and sights. The two rooms and three beds were very suitable for our group of three. We appreciated having cooking facilities. We would definitely stay here again.
