We actually stayed in January 2013 and still have very fond memories of our stay "At the Beach" We plan to revisit in 2016 and staying here will be a must. We had two rooms as we met up with our New Zealand friends and we had a wonderful time. Janes breakfast's were superb and sitting out on the terrace... More

A luxury apartment with all mod cons, a huge bedroom window overlooking the bay with the best view in town, a sumptuous breakfast - what's not to like? Without doubt one of the best places we have stayed in more than 30 years of travelling the world - we booked one night and ended up staying for three nights. The... More

Wonderful accommodation in an amazing location. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which had a picture perfect view from the window which you would never tire of. Also, the access to the beach was great and hardly anyone there! Jane was a fantastic hostess (Doug was away) and nothing was too much trouble. We loved the brownies we were... More

We booked this accommodation from UK 5 months prior to our trip and without any recommendations. It is advisable to have a car to stay here as the property is situated up a hill outside the town of Paihia. To welcome us to in our room was a bar of chocolate, and magazine of the area together with the normal... More

Our second visit to Jane & Doug was once again just what the doctor ordered. Jane is a wonderfully welcoming & generous host. A perfect place to retreat and recharge the batteries, quiet, private as much as you want it to be. Easy to do as much or as little as you want. As local Kiwis, having done the sight... More

Jane and Doug are superb hosts, making our Solomon Islands guests feel very at home. Thank you so much. We especially enjoyed the grapes and figs, and enjoyed the fresh beans and tomatoes from your garden. Will look forward to returning sometime.

This is everything that other travellers have mentioned. Jane is a perfect host and the breakfast on the balcony is to die for. We were blessed with perfect weather and clear night skies to watch the stars. The TV is not necessary in the room as the view from the window is enough. We had the apartment which was brilliant...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our NZ North Island trip. We enjoyed the time in all the places we stayed, however this was the best. The views, the accommodation, the breakfasts, the proximity to the beach and swimming, the host Jane, all were first class. We would recommend this B&B to all on Trip Advisor.... More

Fantastic host and an awesome place to stay. The view when you wake up is unique! Jane is so nice and helps you in all matters. Every morning she serves a selfmade breakfast at the veranda with view over the sea. A dream! Steffen, Dresden

We recently had 2 wonderful nights in Paihia. The accommodation was great, the views from the room amazing. Jane was a wonderful host, with great breakfasts, good recommendations and really good, interesting conversation. Would have no hesitation in returning if in this beautiful part of New Zealand again.
