Our daughter found this place On-line when we were planning our trip out to see her in NZ. She and her boyfriend came with us when we went on a trip to the Bay of Islands, so needed two bedroom accommodation. The site is about 5km outside the town but very quiet and scenic. The lady gave us a warm... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Sunseeker Cottages. Quiet, great views, nice large sunny deck. Cottage was fully equipped and was the grounds were very well maintained. Lovely setting and close to Paihia (by car). Only negative was that we had to take the car everywhere due to it's semi-remote location.

Myself, my husband and my 2.5 year old son stayed here for 3 weeks in between moving from Auckland to KeriKeri and found the cottages to be superbly maintained, well equipped, clean and quiet. Theres a little garden swing set which my son enjoyed and a selection of DVDs available for entertainment. Everything you need is there or on site... More

We have just spent a wonderful week at Sunseekers cottage. They provided everything we needed, we found them cozy, clean and warm (even if the weather wasn't great). We were met by Jill who gave us a warm welcome and explained everything we could do in the area. We would be happy to return for another stay in the future.

We stayed here because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. The units are very well equipped and spacious and there is a very nice looking play area for children. We had a delightful balcony overlooking the countryside and the owner, Jill, was very friendly and welcoming. The motel is only a short drive inland from Paihia, but you... More

We spent 3 nights in Sunseeker cottage, and enjoyed every single aspect of it - the warm welcome, the accessorized units (with additional common area stocked with all the extras), the cozy albeit spacious rooms, and the location (minutes away from attractions and services). Excellent choice for couples!

We stayed for a week here and found it extremely comfortable. We were met by the friendly owner and given details of all the local attractions. The units were superbly equipped with much more and much better appliances, crockery and equipment than the normal units. The four 2 bedroom units are all separate so no issues with noisy neighbours. Apparently... More

Booked here due to good reviews and wasn't disappointed. It was just as described by previous reviewers, clean and comfortable and really great value for money. Our family of 3 was very comfortable in the warm two bedroom cottage. Lovely views over rural Haruru and only a few minutes drive from Paihia

We booked 3 of the 4 cottages over the Easter period for a family holiday and they were perfect. The children were able to go between cottages and the adjacent play ground area in a safe enviroment. The family discussed the accommodation and none of us could find fault. We found the cottages clean and containing everything we needed to... More

We stayed for a week at Sunseeker Cottages. We were glad to be in the quiet location of Haruru Falls just 5 minutes from Paihia. If you have a car it's easy travelling distance to Russell (on the ferry), Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Kerikeri. There are plenty of places to eat in Paihia. We tried the RSA and had a... More
