Stunning view, comfy furnishings, clean and friendly owner. My favourite spot in the house was a oversized chair by the window- perfect for soaking in the view and reading a book. We will definitely be back if we stay in paihia again

We loved the view over the bay. The apartment was spacious and full of light. The morning birdsong was a bonus. Nothing to dislike.
