This is centrally located in Paihia to reach the center and the ship station within a short walking distance. We have learned that the perfect hosts Linda and Roger returned to Christchurch and we hope that the new hosts continue the excellent service we could experience. The place is worth it.

Stayed here during our visit in Feb this Year and what a wonderful way to end our holiday. The house is beautifully maintained, has a stunning vista and the hosts are wonderful. It's a little walk up the hill to get to but is well worth it (it also helps walk off the evening meal). The Bay of Islands is... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the beautiful Green Room, and had a most peaceful and relaxing stay. Lynda and Roger made us warmly welcome, and made sure we wanted for nothing. Gorgeous views away from the noise of the beachfront but close enough to walk when we chose to. Lynda helpfully booked us into the Hole in the Rock... More

We immediately felt at home after a lovely welcome from Lynda. she gave us lots of useful information about things to do and places to eat in Paihia. We stayed in the Gold room which was large and beautifully appointed. The breakfasts are taken on an outside terrace with a great view of the harbour. The breakfasts were superb and... More

We had a fabulous stay at this well appointed, beautiful B and B. The views from the balcony were outstanding and we were lucky with the weather so we could have breakfast on the terrace and enjoy these views at the same time. To make our stay further complete, Lynda and Roger, the owners were perfect hosts.

Excellent accommodation with fantastic views. Lynda and Roger are great hosts who are happy to help with bookings for trips or restaurants and provide first class breakfasts. The location is a 5 minute walk to the Ferry to Russell. Would highly recommend.

Roger presented us with excellent breakfasts each day - each one beautifully presented and different from the day before. Lynda and Roger were great hosts, couldn't do enough for us to make our stay memorable. Lynda arranged a fantastic trip for us around the Bay of Islands for which the weather was perfect. We were only there three nights, but... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Marlin House as the guests of Lynda and Robert for Christmas. We were entirely pleased with the location and the accommodation. We also appreciated that our hosts were happy to spend time with us and the other guests. Robert's cooking was beautifully presented and his scrambled eggs were some of the best I... More

This was our very first B&B ever! And if this is the standard for the ones to come we are the most lucky people on earth. Great location, very nice and spotless clean rooms, but most important Lynda and Roger are great hosts. They gave us great tips to view the area, arranged a booking on The Cream Trip for... More
