“Wonderful stay! Lovely, modern, comfortable home with great views.”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our family stayed for a week and we really enjoyed our time in this holiday home. Spacious, clean, bright, airy and comfortable. Very quiet. Great location with fantastic views over Paihia and the bay. Walking distance to wharf, beach, shops and restaurants. Very comfortable beds with crisp clean linen and soft towels. (professional laundry service used). Modern, top grade appliances (excellent dishwasher). Fast internet connection. Attention to detail was obvious - beds made prior to arrival, umbrellas supplied, DVD's, books available to use, etc, etc. Cot, high chair included. It was a pleasure to deal with Brett the owner. Professional & courteous and always prompt with his replies. Very good value for money property! The house is a few minutes walk to or from Paihia. It's a little steep coming back up the hill but no real issue if you have a basic level of fitness. (If the house wasn't on a hill you wouldn't have the views). Note - during our stay (Sept '14) the main Countdown supermarket was closed because of a dispute with the landlord. There are smaller supermarkets available. After our activities for the day it was a pleasure to return to our Paihia "home". It was so easy to feel relaxed here. One of the best homes we have ever rented - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

We stayed at the property for 14 nights over xmas/new year. It was a near new and very tidy home in a fantastic location, close to the beach and shops. Has everything you need in a holiday home. Lovely view over the water too.

We loved our stay in this terrific home away from home at Paihai. The house is absolutely lovely. Perched on top of a hill it has rock star views of the Bay of Islands. It is an easy walk too and from the heart of Paihai. We were so sad to leave.
