Well what a review and we thank you for it. It was great looking after you and we like to think we can provide our guests as much information about the beautiful Bay Of Islands as we can. This of course is all part of the deal when you stay at Longhouse. It would have been nice for you to... More

Glad we chose this excellent b&b for our four night stay in Paihia. Our 'Queen room' had ensuite and a mini kitchen, which we found very useful. However, in terms of facilities, it was the property's large outside deck on which we were served breakfast most mornings and the private access to our room, that really are the key features....

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our six-night stay at Longhouse B & B close to Paihia (Bay of islands), New Zealand. John helped us with booking tours, drove us to the nearby start of the Haruru Falls hike, cooked an excellent breakfast, and did many kind favours for us, such as laundry and driving us to town. The room... More

We loved this bed and breakfast! The best place that we stayed at on the North Island, this location is just outside of the business of Pahia making it a relaxing location without all the tourists around but its just a really short drive to town. Nestled in the trees you feel like your in a remote location. John and... More

There's nothing like a top-notch B&B to make you feel like the forever flight from the States and long drive from Auckland were all worth it.
