Got a week off Trade Me and spent it there with my Mum and two sisters. Location was primo, right across the road from the beach. Room and grounds were very well maintained and the bbq area at the front was lovely for lounging around in the sun. There were four different staff members we dealt with throughout the week... More

Back again and just as good, even if the weather was not quite as anticipated! Great atmosphere, lovely facilities and helpful staff plus all those discounts for local events and fishing trips etc. Great location; handy to the shops, the Paihia wharf, restaurants and cafes and with a great beach across the road. We had an upstairs unit so views... More

I have stayed here off and on over many years as my mother has been a timeshare owner for 25 years, and I must say that Busby Manor is looking very sharp indeed! The whole complex has been very well maintained and the units are well equipped, clean and tidy. Everything you need for a week's stay is there and... More

We are enjoying learning more about the history of the area, visiting wineries, markets and other attractions. A great place for a relaxing and restful holiday with a very scenic outlook watching the boats and the... More

If you are tired of the giant resorts packed with tourists, this is a perfect place in a stunningly beautiful location. The property looks out on the bay, the green, tree clad islands and undulating coastline of the Bay of Islands area. The rooms are simple, but as comfortable as home. The property is immaculate, nicely landscaped, with a small... More

I came away relaxed and rested. You can hear the gentle waves breaking in the evening and morning as the beach is across the road. Level walk to nearby Village centre for all your Shopping, Travel or activities requirements only 5 minutes away. Seems there is always some activity going on in the Village green or Water front area. .... More

The location cant be bettered - right on the waterfront -... More
