“Home from home with spectacular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Bay of Islands and could not have chosen a better place to stay. Our hosts, Brita & Heinz treated us as their friends, rather than just customers, the room enjoyed fabulous views over the bay (and that was from room 2!) and was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a fun occasion when all guests ate together on the balcony looked after by Heinz, who cooks perfect boiled eggs! The bread is also excellent!
The walk up the hill is hard work, but the views are worth the struggle and it must get rid of some calories!
For anyone who enjoys comfort in wonderful surroundings Allegra House is definitely the place to stay. We would also recommend 35 degrees for an evening meal.

Thanks. We enjoyed meeting you and sharing some good chats. We get a lot of guests who enjoy the chance to have a desert knowing they will walk it off on the way home!!. Hope to see you again.

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.
