“Another great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Back to our favourite spot in the Bay of Islands for another amazing weeks holiday. The room was wonderful last time, but this time it was even better with new carpet and paint scheme. Nice and spacious apartment with all the things we needed. Nicki & Ben were very welcoming and helpful.

Room Tip: All rooms have dark tinting on the windows - still plenty of light but more privacy. This time we we...

Units were well presented immediately with great lush tropical type grounds .We used the spa pool several times and the view from the spa over the pool and on to the sea was impressive.
Unit itself was clean and tidy with great utensil's and a well set up spacious kitchen and open plan lay out. Beds were big and comfortable. Bathroom and shower had functional and clean lay out. Great restaurant next door and town an easy walk.Hosts were friendly and approachable at all times.

Room Tip: Unit by the spa and pool made it easy to keep an eye on the kids .

Loved the hotel which was clean, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well appointed and most appliances were new. Our hosts were friendly and couldn't do enough. The restaurant next door is the best in town and the seafood second to none.

Room Tip: Away from the road is better for sleep, but close is best for teh view

Thanks Douglas....so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

More and more people seem to be moving to the apartment style accommodation. The apartments have everything you need for an overnight or extended stay.

We are so lucky to have Alfresco's Restaurant next door...... seriously the best.

Once again many thanks for your feedback.

Regards

Nicki

We had a beautiful few days in Paihia. The apartment was large & spacious. The balcony wasn't enormous and gave us a small view of the water, but was pleasant to sit on none the less.The rooms were clean and well maintained. The position was great, just over the road from the beach & a short walk from the wharf & shops. The staff were helpful & booked our trips for us, with a discount. We would definitely recommend it.

Modern, open plan self catering apartments with great design, water views and covered parking. Clean, comfortable and spacious. Excellent for families if a little expensive. Great communal lap pool with jacuzzi. Beach 10 meters over the road, walk to weekly markets, and good selection of nearby restaurants. Very helpful reception. Very happy with choice. Let's have more of these.

Room Tip: Best rooms face directly out to the bay. Great views. But all rooms are good.

Really decent serviced apartment in a great location. The apartment was spacious, clean and provided a great base to explore Paihia, Russell and the winterless North. The few interactions that we had with the staff were all positive as they were friendly and helpful. There are plenty of accomodation options around this area and I would not hesitate to recommend Edgewater Palms.

We really enjoyed our stay at edgewater, we extended our stay and relished in the bay of islands the apartments are modern comfotable and clean. We enjoyed the friendly service and the whole complex was kept to high standards. Each morning we would pop 5m across the road and take a dip in the sea then take a short stole down the road to the shops for a coffee. This was a perfect week away for us.

Thanks for the good service, will highly reccomend.
