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.

Lovely resort and great accommodation. I agree with the other reviewers, the hosts work really hard to make all their guests feel really welcome. A tropical storm hit whilst we were staying, but our place was fine, due to the effort Mark and Viv put in beforehand. Spacious, well located, and very comfortable appartment, we would love to return there... More
