Stayed 2 nights here last year with my parents. Breathtaking view. The chalets were almost brand new and had everything we needed. Comfortable space inside and outside. Very quiet.

I particularly like the floorplan where the two bedrooms are at different ends of thr chalet with the living and dining areas in the middle.

The hosts Clair and Richard were most friendly.

A short drive to Russell town centre where we did the Bay of Islands tour and there were many dining options.

We stayed at Paroa Bay Chalets for two nights over a weekend and it was absolute bliss!
We arrived late Friday night to find the most amazing chalet, very clean and tidy and with everything you could want! Claire made our arrival so simple with easy to follow instructions on how to get there from Auckland - we were very taken with just how easy and stress free it was to organise this stay!
The location and views were amazing - just absolutely breathtaking. To cap it all off, a beautiful outdoor spa is nestled among the trees for your use and it provides pure relaxation.
All in all, an amazing weekend and stay. We are very grateful for this experience and trust that we will be back!

Very nice and comfortable stay. We enjoyed outdoor spa a lot. Just next to a local winery which was close during our stay.
Claire is a very warm welcoming host and was pretty easy to arrange the things with her.
Highly recommended!

“Hell yes, would stay here again!!”
Reviewed February 13, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Gorgeous property, modern and provided all amenities, even a washer and dryer, netflix and internet! Although you may not need these things as the view is outstanding and the property is a dream! You can see the ocean in one direction and the sun rises over the mountains in the other. The owners go out of their way to make sure you're delighted with your stay, they even brought us kids books to borrow! The hot tub is so inviting and overlooks the Bay of Islands in one direction and the mountains in the other. The house is glass on 2 sides with shades you may use if you'd like. Perfection, go there now!

We stayed at the Paroa Bay Chalets and had a fabulous time. The chalet was modern, clean, and had everything required for a very comfortable visit. The view was stunning and we would love to visit again. Highly recommended!

“Already thinking of returning”
Reviewed January 19, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Incredible chalet. My wife and I are seasoned travelers who have high standards and these were surpassed from start to finish. The chalet was beautifully finished, extremely comfortable with all the fixtures / fittings / provisions being very well thought out. The location is beautiful - stunning views and extremely peaceful. Lovely bonus to be walking distance to a very nice winery. Claire and Richard were excellent hosts, nothing was too much (lent us toys for our kids when we forgot them). Would love to return and cannot recommend highly enough.

“Awesome Paroa Bay Chalets”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

What a fantastic place to stay the accommodation is stunning and the views are amazing. The hot tub is just fabulous you need to sit in this late at night and hear Weka crying and watch the stars at night.
A very relaxing place to stay we loved it.
