The view, accommodations, and the service was spectacular. Marilyn went above and beyond to make us feel at home. Gourmet breakfast on the deck , booking our day trips and going above and beyond to make us comfortable. My wife and I really enjoyed sharing a glass of wine chatting with Marilyn and her friend Ismay. Highly recommend this property.
Wayne&Mary, ca5 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
A comfortable and well presented apartment just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Paihia. Great views over the bay from the balcony, with seats and a table for breakfast or relaxing in the evening. The owner, Marylin, gave a very warm welcome and is ready to offer advice or assistance for local trips. The drive to the property is very steep, and some may find that difficult to walk. Great location for many Northland attractions and sites.

Wonderful property with a very helpful owner. Spacious and well appointed room. Driveway is quite steep and requires a bit of getting used to.
