What a lovely place. We had a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with a balcony looking right out to sea. It is really nicely decorated with all you could possibly need. Loved the master bedroom which opened onto the balcony and how it was also ensuite. The pool was a nice addition - although was rather chilly when we were in!... More

We ended up staying at the Pioneer Water front apartments after a bad first night elsewhere in Paihia. The manager Mark was fantastic letting come in early and also helped book the must do hole in the rock tour. The assortment we had was extremely family friendly and beautiful! Couldn't of asked for anything more!

My family and I just stayed here and the service we received from mark the manager was outstanding! Directly across from the beach and only a two minute walk to town you can't look past this. The apartments are stunning ..... No more needed to be said!

We stayed at Pioneer Apartments for a week in March 2015, you cannot fault this accommodation. The hosts, Mark and Viv, were more than helpful and make you feel very at home in your "home away from home" and provide helpful information to ensure a pleasant stay. The location is outstanding. Ocean across the road, restaurants and eats merely metres... More

I stayed here for five nights with my wife on a larger trip to New Zealand and the Cook Islands and this was our favorite place. It would be hard to improve on anything at this place. Mark was a great host to the apartments and was very resourceful and friendly. It was a little too chilly for the main... More

Some places would be hard to improve on, and this is one of them. What you get is a very spacious, very clean and very well-equipped 2-bedroom low-rise apartment right on the Paihia waterfront and just a short stroll to shops and some really good restaurants. The view from the front apartments by day and by night is spectacular; uninterrupted... More

Stayed 4 nights in spacious 2 bedroom apartment. Clean, comfortable and well situated property to enjoy Paihia. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and wharf where all the action is. Viv was hosting the resort whilst her family were away and had her hands full with the pool being upgraded but managed our requests with ease and a friendly smile. Beds... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Very well appointed apartment, you're not lacking for anything, it's all here. Apartment is very roomy, and nice and snug. The spa bath is nice on a cold night. Situated close to the shops, and the beach is right across the road.
