We found this lovely place through the owners of the Ash Grove Motel which is next door. We had been very disappointed by our original booking in Paihia and decided not to stay. The two bedroom cottage was a godsend and as different from the first place as could be and all at the same price. Jill was so welcoming... More

Great value immaculate cozy cottages. The only down side (plus for us) is it is 5 mins out of town, quiet and peaceful. Great warm friendly service our hosts could not do enough for us. the cottages are superb and great value. Lovely hot and strong showers, something we haven't had often on our trip to date. Well stocked kitchen... More

We stayed two nights at the Sunseeker cottages while attending a wedding in Feb 2012 as a couple plus 7 month old baby. The cottages are modern Lockwood type construction two bedroom units with plenty of space. Furnishings are comfortable. The manager was really helpful and found an excellent babysitter for our son while we were at the wedding reception.... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Sunseeker in January 2012 and were really impressed with the 2 bedroom spacious units, the cleanliness, lovely facilities and helpfulness of Jill the owner who offered to help with advise on local attractions. The location is only a few minutes from Paihia and in a nice quiet area. Our young kids loved the playground.... More

We stayed at one of the cottages for 3 nights, but our first thought was when we first stepped into the place: This is a place we could stay for a while. The first things you will notice when you come in is how new everything is, the cleanliness of the place and the feeling of home it conveys due... More

Just a 5-minute drive from Paihia, a quiet and very comfortable five-star accommodation at a budget price. The cottage had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Jill at the reception was very helpful and accommodative with our requests. She also gave valuable advise regarding things/activities around Paihia and sought feedback once we got back so that she can help... More

We stayed in Sunseekers for 3 nights commencing on the 28 February 2011 and what a true find, it was a home away from home. The cottage was spacious well equipped and spotless. Whilst planning our trip we were not sure whether to stay in central Paihia because we had heard that it was very noisey with a lot of... More

We thought the locatiion was too far away from Paihia, but in fact it was perfect. The cottages were fine and well equipped. We were able to book our Cape Reinga trip as well as get picked up and dropped off at the bottom of the drive. Jill, our hostess, let us "borrow" her dog to take on walks. We... More
