Everything about this place is above average. My room was modern, comfortable, roomy, well equipped, and exceptionally clean. Hot water was hot and plentiful and the WiFi was fast and free. Like most places there are steps to climb but even at my age of 66, that was no problem ever. The staff are really friendly and cannot do enough...

We stayed here over the Easter long weekend and found it to be an excellent base for exploring the Bay of Islands and Northland. The cabins were very comfortable with good views over the Bay of Islands and walking distance to the CBD in Pahia.

The view. It’s all about the view. OK it was up a few steps to get to our cabin, but with a glass of wine on the decking overlooking the Bay of Islands it was nothing for a priceless view. The accommodation itself was spacious, modern and super clean with all you want for a comfortable stay. The location is...

Stayed 3 nights here. I selected it for the view over Paihia and the bay. Villa 4 had a view from the balcony and kitchen and also was more private than some of the villas. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils and clean. Full service not provided eg making beds, towels changed each day and rubbish removed only. The...

The cabins are centrally located in Pahia, some have views of the sea ours you had to be tall & stretch your neck. The cabins get very hot in summer, the large ceiling fan helps but a/c would be better. If you leave the windows & sliding door open to get a breeze blowing through also helps but your then...

Had pre booked two cabins with sea views as part of a road trip around North Island so unsure what to expect. " no worries" it was brilliant - modern yet quirky beautifully clean and really well appointed with microwave, toaster, kettle , fridge and loads of crockery etc. Not "serviced" but bins emptied, beverages replenished and towels changed daily....

This is an unusal motel set into a steep hillside so that there is a walk up to most of the cabins. However the sea view and charming cabins are worth it. The main part is a studio with a separate bedroom. As a couple staying here we found this useful to stow our suitcases. It is a short walk...

Belinda and Pete have not overlooked anything to make a stay in their roomy chalets a memorable occasion. Situated amongst a sloping tumble of lush plantings, the setting is picture perfect ...with all widows offering a different exciting vista. Our accomodation had that fresh well looked after feel with a fully appointed kitchen having all the tools of trade. Tea,...
