Very welcoming hosts, We did't know how good a "continental breakfast" could be. Superbly clean and well presented house and guest accommodation with really comfortable beds. Small pool available but too cold for us when we were there early November. An exciting steep drive with views of the bay. We loved the visit

This B & B is a wonderful place to stay while in Paihia. The owners go out of their way to accommodate their guests and provide a very positive atmosphere. the rooms are very well kept, an excellent breakfast, and a region with a great deal of New Zealand history.

This B&B was excellent. The welcome from the owners was truly warm and friendly. The bedroom was 5 star and lacked nothing. The beds extremely comfortable . Breakfast was brilliant, especially the home baked friends... We had to have the recipe. We had loads of local advice on things to do and places to eat. They even booked our boat... More

Wow, Phil is a wonderful host. Could accommodate us at very short notice and is a true host and gentleman. A very relaxing and beautiful space. All the comforts of home. It is a true representation of Kiwi hospitality. Warm and welcoming and amazing views from the living areas.A+++++++++

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.
