This self catering apartment has one King bed with a tropical garden view and majestic Ocean views from the lounge and kitchen and just a 400 meter walk to Paihia town and all that the glorious 'Bay-of-Islands' has to offer. This apartment is suitable for a couple looking for some home comforts, some quiet time away and within walking access of the main town of Paihia,...Amazing views from a million dollar location with plenty of space in this fully self contained apartment, watch the Opua to Russell ferry at your alfresco breakfast table and listen to the music of the native 'Tui' birds serenading your morning vistas that include the Ocean, Opua to Russell ferry, native woodlands, mangrove forest & bush lands..

Thank you for the review and we are pleased you enjoyed the trip to Cape Reinga, always an entertaining day out along 90 mile beach and to the top of the North Island. We hope you enjoyed your time in New Zealand.
