We had a fabulous night at The Decks of Paihia. The room was well appointed, warm and quiet. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast with amazing homemade muesli and fantastic scrambled eggs. The hosts were very friendly and we really enjoyed chatting with them. They were not intrusive though. The stay was very private. A magical spot. Thank you.

Super review - thank you so much. It was also our pleasure as well to meet you both and spend some time hearing about your interesting life. We do hope that the next time you are able to escape for a night away, we can continue that great conversation over breakfast - perhaps next time try one of Phil's omlettes!!... More

Decks of Pihia is perfect for a cheeky weekend away. My husband and I stayed for a few days, but it felt like a week! The rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable, we even enjoyed a bottle of wine on the deck taking in the amazing views of the ocean. Breakfast hit the spot, local, fresh and lots to choose... More

Have never been anywhere else that has made you so welcome, has had such gorgeous and comfy rooms and is a perfect base for exploring. Hosts made us feel like we were in a home from home and were knowledgeable and super friendly whilst not being over the top. Can't fault our whole experience and would fully recommend to anyone!

We stayed at Decks of Paihia in May 2014 and chose to do so because of the consistently high reviews Phil & Wendy have received. These are most definitely well deserved - they offer the complete package. Rooms are stylish, comfortable and immaculately clean. We arrived late in the evening and the room was toasty warm as they had even... More

We stayed here on a long weekend getaway from the churn and burn of Melbourne. We couldn't of had a better 3 days, the place was luxury as advertised.

Spent 3 days at wonderful Decks of Paihia. Phil and Wendy are the most amazing hosts - nothing is too much trouble and they do everything they can to make your stay magical. Rooms are spotless and very comfortable - every little touch has been carefully thought of. Would return in a heartbeat for more of this fantastic hospitality.

Stayed for three nights, as the first stop on our 4 week NZ trip. We don't usually use B&B, but our tour operator recommended this. And we could not have asked for more.

We have just returned from a three night stay at the Decks of Paihia on the recommendation of a colleague and we weren't disappointed. Our room which was comfortable and spotlessly clean opened out onto our own private space on the terrace overlooking the pool.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thanks for the review - even if the pool was "freezing". We think "envigorating" is probably a better way of describing it! Hope your season is bountiful and successful for you. More
