Welcoming, informative and both good breakfast cooks (Rob claims he taught Nick all he knows!). Superb views from the deck. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Short 5/10 minutes drive from Paihai centre.

We stayed in Paihia for three days at this bed and breakfast. Although just outside Paihia in Haruru it was very convenient. We ate in Paihia and the taxi service couldn't have been quicker, friendlier and good value. Breakfast was exceptionally good. The rooms and facilities were good. As we were with friends we had the whole apartment but you... More

The breakfast is perfect and it´s... More

Nick and Rob were both very welcoming, and they offered a wealth of good ideas about restaurants and activities. The inn is lovely, and breakfast was great. We enjoyed the other guests, and the cat Casey!

Wonderful hosts who had tons of advice re local trips and restaurants. Beautiful setting, just what we needed after long flights and drive from UK and Auckland. Would definately recommend to friends and we hope to come again. Appreciated Rob's help with printing photos of brand new grand daughter, born in England whilst we were at Baystay! Cheers boys and...

Only problem is finding the place with or without a GPS. We arrived at night in the rain; signage is very small. Great host and view of the river valley. Parking little tight. Nice to be out of the crowded town area.

i cannot believe the rating for this place, it was awful. As soon as my friend and I entered the place all we could smell was cat, and the place was just scruffy. All I can say is the photos must have been taken years ago. Needless to say we left to find somewhere else. Would defo not recommend.

Dear Meg Martin, We are very disappointed reading your review, especially as you didn't even stay with us and experienced our hospitality! Seems like you are alone in your opinion, as you can read from the rest of our reviews. In saying that, one terrible review will make guests read our 160+ excellent or very good reviews even more closely!... More

Has to be the best place we have EVER stayed. The host Rob was so helpful and assisted us in whatever we needed. The home itself is stunning and breathtaking, as well as relaxing. Meeting other couples was also a highlight and Baystay provided us with the opportunity of creating new found friendships. It's everything it's cranked up to be.... More
