The apartment is well located in Paihia and makes for a good starting point for the local attractions. The views, however, are a major feature. We could see islands and water from every room in the apartment starting from brushing our teeth in the bathroom to cooking in the kitchen and then dining in the living area and finally climbing into bed. It made for a deluxe environment. The bed and linens were excellent quality. The kitchen was a full sized one with good equipment.
Our hosts, Pam and Murray, could not have done more to make our stay a pleasure.
If you love an unobstructed view, this is the place for you. We could sit on the balcony all day. The owners Pam and Murray were very friendly and provide us with all the information that we need. They booked the tours fo us and also offered to pick up from the town after our tour as it was raining very heavily that day. We wished we have the time to get to know them much better.
Thank you for making our stay so memorable.
Great location up on the hill overlooking Paihia and the Bay of Islands. Pam and Murray were great hosts and very accommodating! They even helped us book a day trip on a boat out in the bay. Apartment has everything you need with a large open living space, kitchen and bathroom. Light breakfast provided. Bed is very comfortable and we loved the wine :) Would definitely stay here again!
The views are fantastic. Close to town and beach yet such a peaceful retreat, did I mention the views! You can watch the ferries and boats all day, when we were visiting there were cruise ships anchored. This self-contained apartment is modern and spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed and very roomy living area. Pam (our host) made us feel most welcome. Hopefully get to stay again!
