“Great Decks to have a snooze in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Lovely, friendly hosts.
A great place to stay and real value for money. You get your own private decked area with sun loungers. There is a small, clean swimming pool and lovely secluded views of woodland with the sea visible over the trees.
Good walks close by and a nice breakfast too.
Will guarantee you will love it here (watch out for the steep driveway).

We really appreciate your time taken to write us your review....and hope you can make it back here again in some slightly warmer weather to enjoy our pool. I am sure next time the driveway will be a breeze. Hope the rest if your travels went to plan and we do hope to see you again.

Beautifully positioned overlooking Paihia, and immaculately maintained. Phil and Wendy offer just the right amount of hospitality. Breakfast was as much as you wanted. Looking forward to opportunity to return.

Room Tip: Rooms nicely separate from communal area.

This was a really fantastic suprise - a wonderful modern building with private decks looking out on to bush (amazing bird song in the evenings and mornings FYI) and the pool. The room was really well appointed and supremely clean. A very relaxing place to sleep and re-coup after my business meetings. I was actually delayed another night due to plane being cancelled and was really very happy at the thought of 'having' to spend another night here. I could not fault this B&B I whole heartedly recommend to business and holiday visitors to the Bay of Islands. THANK YOU and I would not stay anywhere else in Paihia now I have found Decks of Paihia if I can help it.

I have been meaning to write a review for ages. We had a wonderful time in Paihia in early May. It really is a beautiful spot for a weekend away! The B&B is absolutely gorgeous and we agree with all the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor. Our room was just fabulous with quality furnishings. The bed was so comfy with lovely linen! A lovely continental breakfast was provided. We particularly enjoyed the fruit! The pool looks lovely. A little bit too cold for us to swim in May but it must be great in the summer months! Thankyou Wendy and Phil. We hope to return again sometime soon!

Thank you for the lovely review, and so pleased the late summer weather was at it's best for your visit - hopefully next time you visit it will be summer and you can enjoy the pool. Look forward to your next visit.

My sister and I stayed here in Paihia for a wonderful sister's weekend recently. I can't recommend this B&B as a place to stay more! The room was fabulous. Our breakfast delicious! Phil and Wendy are the perfect hosts. They couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. It was like staying with great old friends. We will definitely return. We hope to go back later in the year.

Thankyou Phil and Wendy for starting out honeymoon off in such a perfect manor! The room was great and had everything we needed; Lovely toiletries, and plush towels, the fridge in the wardrobe is a great idea. The pool and outside area was lovely, especially in the late afternoon sun. Excellent recommendations for things to do and restaurants to visit. The Duke of Marlborough in Russell remains our favourite memory and meal! Thankyou again, Rebecca & Sam.
