“Absolutely amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We can really, really, really recommend this location. Heinz and Britta are wonderful hosts. The view of our room was unbelievable. Breakfast more than delicious and the support/advices of Heinz,... I can´t find the right words.
Thanks a lot for everything! Greetings from Switzerland/Germany

Stayed here to visit The Bay of Islands. Allegra house is set up above the bay and the rooms all look out over it with balconies too. So beautiful we had DIY suppers each night in preference to going to restaurants. Heinz and Brita were lovely hosts and the breakfasts were delicious and healthy too- served looking over the bay of course. They were very helpful with organising trips.

When we entered our room and saw the view from the large window and balcony we gasped with amazement. This is a wonderful place to stay and nothing was too much trouble to Brit and Heinz who clearly want their guests to enjoy their stay but give you your own space.
We were fortunate to see the New Year in with all the guests inivited by our hosts to champagne and nibbles and watch the fireworks over the Bay. A lovely start to 2013. We were on a long tour and so were able to do our laundry without any hassle. We also did the cheapest helicopter tour for 20 minutes which Heinz booked for us. Unforgettable too.

we stayed in allegra house for three nights and enjoyed it very much. the place is spotlessly clean and we felt very comfortable and welcome. we stayed on the top floor for the first two nights, where we had a stunning view over the bay. the downstairs room where we stayed for another night, was also perfect. heinz and brita are very friendy hosts, heinz magicked a yummy breakfast every morning and was very helpful with advice on what do to in the area. there is a small path running from the house down to paihia, you can reach the town in a couple of minutes.

I was lucky enough to snag 2 nights at Allegra House mid-November. It sits high over the Bay of Islands and a short walk down the hill to the town of Paihia. Heinz and Brita were fabulous hosts and the breakfast served on the deck was delicious. Brita took care of my booking on a boat tour the first morning.
The one-bedroom apartment was very modern and very comfortable. Next time I bring Ted and we stay a few days longer.

It was great that you enjoyed your stay. We loved having you and it is always great when guests leave with a list of things to do 'next time'. We look forward to seeing you again and meeting Ted.

This is an amazing place to stay. The house is large and spacious, and the top floor room has a lovely balcony. The real clincher is the view out over Paihia and the bay. Waking up each morning to the islands and sea was fantastic. Breakfast was very nice and Heinz & Brita couldn't have done more for us - helped us with places to go, routes around the area and activties.

Only negative or point to note is that Allegra is up a fairly steep and long hill. We were fine with this, but maybe not for young children or less mobile people on foot.

Room Tip: Top floor room is the best view
