We stayed for 4 nights and we just enjoyed it. The breakfast is great, freshly baked muffins every morning ♡♡♡ The 2 hosts were so friendly and helpful, it realy felt like home. We would book this b&b again!

Just been staying at Decks of Paihia for two days and can highly recommend. The house is lovely, rooms huge with all possible comforts and a really good breakfast cooked to order if wanted and/or plenty of other choices, including home bakes! Phil and Wendy are really welcoming and are ever available. Can't recommend highly enough.

We think everything already said about Decks of Pahia and the hosts Phil @ Wendy is spot on. Wakening up in the morning to the sound of birds singing and no traffic sound , then enjoying a good breakfast with friends you have not met before is a great way to start the day. Great room , comfortable bed and... More

We stayed with Phil and Wendy for 4 nights at the end of our holiday. The rooms were lovely and the decking ideal for sunbathing and relaxing . Breakfasts were lovely and were a good time to chat and plan the day. We were also able to do some washing which was handy.Nothing was too much trouble !

Please to hear you are home safe and sound - hope it isn't too brutal leaving behind our summer and heading back to winter. We have had a mixed week this week with a bit of rain, but the ground was really sighing with relief I have to say. Just makes the grass grow again! Thanks so much for your... More

We stayed 4 nights in this gorgeous B&B. Our rooms were overlooking the valley and had doors out onto the decking and pool area. The place is beautifully clean and well decorated.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at the Decks of Paihia. Our room was large and well furnished with a superb bathroom - an extractor fan that actually works and a mirror that stays clear of condensation - nice touches.

The Decks of Paihia is a small and perfectly formed bed and breakfast above the town. We stayed five nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Our room which overlooked the deck and pool was large, very comfortable and had a lovely ensuite. There were also some very nice extras such as a dvd library and baked biscuits replaced daily....

I cannot recommend this place enough. Just one thing--and it applies to pretty much anywhere in NZ: you really need to rent a car. Unless you plan on going to the local beach every day and just bike around, you need to be able to drive yourself. That being said, although this B&B is up a steep hill in a... More
