Absolute Bliss, Paihia, New Zealand
Great location, good size room, nice views. Not as quiet as i hoped as walls/ceilings lack sound proofing so can hear TV/voices in other rooms and from above. Also, although wifi is reliable and free it is limited so no streaming.

The Perfect Place
We stayed 5 nights. Marilyn was very welcoming and helpful. We had lost luggage from our flight and Marilyn couldn't have been more supportive in providing assistance until our suitcase finally arrived. The apartment was was perfect for us. Great views, comfortable and easy walking distance to everything.

Lovely Paihia stay
The Hostess did a very fine job for such accommodation type. The only one mark less with comfort was the mattress is on the slight softer side, however its' up to individual, some prefer more firm mattress & others are opposite. The rest of our stay at the property are top notch. Happy to come back when we are in Paihia again

Lives up to its name
Stunning view from our balcony drive was very steep difficult to both walk and drive up but the view from the top was worth it

Top of the tree..
You get to the accommodation up the steepest drive you may ever have encountered. You then use an elevator to get to the apartment. But it really is worth it. Fantastic view across the bay. Marilyn is a perfect host, friendly and informative. We were on B&B so she left a continental breakfast in our room the previous evening. Comfortable bed. Quiet accommodation. Really recommended.
