Wonderful spot, great views and a special host. The rooms are set up with everything you need. Inge is a great source of information and an exceptional host. The breakfasts are a delight and her extra kindness makes everything special. Exploring the Bay of Islands was our introduction to New Zealand and we will return!

This bed and breakfast is the most beautiful place from the views to the outstanding service by Inge and Eddie. There is nothing that they dont think of and you will not be wanting for anything. Her breakfast is truly outstanding and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed here for our wedding anniversary but if you have a special... More

We felt our stay could not have been better. The room was comfortable and inviting. The bathroom was modern & sparking clean with a great shower. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The breakfast was wonderful. Inge gave us great advice about restaurants and activities. This was our last stop on a 6 week trip and was the perfect... More

We saved the best til nearly last! After a month in New Zealand and having stayed in some wonderful places we arrived at Chalet Romantica to be met by Inge, the loveliest lady you could ever meet! We stayed in the Romantica Suite at the top of the house (no lift) but worth hauling the bags up the stairs for... More

I and my wife visited this for the Easter long weekend, on 3rd April, 2015. We had booked the Bellavista room. The room is really nice, clean and cozy. It has the view of the bay and has a nice sit-out. There is almost nothing that Inge and Eddie haven't thought about. The bathroom although not en-suite, is really spacious... More

We stayed two nights at the Chalet after a 4 week motorcycle trip on the South and North island, before returning to Germany. When we booked the room Inge had offered to book a day trip as well, and even arranged for a pick-up close to the Chalet. On arrival she told us that for the first night we would... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and wish it had been for longer. This is fabulous accommodation. We stayed in the Romantica Suite, which has a lovely balcony area and fantastic views over the bay. Inge was a wonderful host, full of information and recommendations and what a lovely thought to bring us a glass of "bubbly" shortly after our... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in Paihia and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Romantica. First of all, I can't say enough about Inge and her hospitality. She is outstanding, assisting and making recommendations for day trips and restaurants. The Chalet is an easy walk to town even though coming back is uphill. We stayed in the Romantica... More

Very good B&B accommodation with a great view over the bay. Inge is the perfect host and provided a great breakfast and booked the Cream boat trip for us without any hassle. Nothing was too much trouble and Inge gave us good advice on what to see and do during our stay. The B&B is in a nice quiet position... More

Although Pahia is a vibrant town at the bay of islands this B&B offers a quiet and very comfort base to enjoy this beautiful place at the northern island. The sea view apartments offer a fantastic view over the bay - sitting there with a glass of wine is an excellent alternative. The garden view apartment is a perfect hide... More
