“Three days in Paihia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Nick and Rob were the perfect hosts for our exploration of the Bay of Islands in October (2012). They were veritable tour guides, suggesting sites to see, restaurants to dine in, and hikes to try. They even brought out the sun for us. The B&B is clean, comfortable, relaxing, up-to-date. And we had a view of the surrounding countryside every morning from the deck right outside our room. We highly recommend Bayside B&B to anyone traveling in this area.

Wonderful. !! My husband and I spent two nights at the Baystay and it felt like home from the moment we arrived. Spacious and immaculate with all the amenities a great B and B should have. Yummy breakfast also with the best home made kiwi jam. This was the best place we stayed while in NZ.

Hidden down a tiny road, accessed between two houses, emerges Baystay B & B. The room was beautifully appointed and comfortable but the gem was the view from the open plan living area and the large deck. The land falls away to the river with the cliff face on the far side. Nick and Rob were very welcoming and made us feel at home, and the breakfast was excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly go back to Baystay if we travel to the Bay of Islands again.

A true home away from home experience with picture postcard views from the decks. If you want to chill and recharge or are looking for an ideal base to explore the Bay of Islands you would find this place hard to beat. The Sunday roast dinner was restaurant class and breakfast plentiful. With free wi-fi and a pinball machine what more could you ask for at a very reasonable nightly rate. Great comfy bed with remote tv, clean and bright bedroom with hot tub on the deck..Will definately return soon.
