Cook's Lookout is situated about 4 km outside Paihai, which is in itself a wonderful resort town on the Bay of Islands, and a must see. What was so wonderful about our stay at Cook's Lookout was the quiet and incredibly beautiful scenery all visable from the deck, patio, or through floor to ceiling windows and even lying in bed! It was a beautiful quiet get away enhanced by our hosts who did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. We only had 3 days there and fully enjoyed all the things to do in the area, Each evening it was like coming back to a bit of heaven! The place also had good facilities and we enjoyed our breakfasts on the deck and barbecuing by the pool. Highly recommended but you definitely need more than one night here!
