This is a small, family run complex. The owners are lovely - so friendly and helpful. The cottages are comfortable with a good lounge and large balcony. The bedrooms are small but perfectly formed! It is a short drive to the town centre and shopping/fuel. Lovely and quiet location!

Our hosts Jim & Sylvia welcomed us, our cottage was clean, roomy & well equipped with a large veranda, and only 5 min drive from Paihia. Would certainly recommend staying here for a peaceful relaxing holiday - but plenty to do an see in the Bay of Islands if you wish.

Our daughter found this place On-line when we were planning our trip out to see her in NZ. She and her boyfriend came with us when we went on a trip to the Bay of Islands, so needed two bedroom accommodation. The site is about 5km outside the town but very quiet and scenic. The lady gave us a warm... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Sunseeker Cottages. Quiet, great views, nice large sunny deck. Cottage was fully equipped and was the grounds were very well maintained. Lovely setting and close to Paihia (by car). Only negative was that we had to take the car everywhere due to it's semi-remote location.

We have just spent a wonderful week at Sunseekers cottage. They provided everything we needed, we found them cozy, clean and warm (even if the weather wasn't great). We were met by Jill who gave us a warm welcome and explained everything we could do in the area. We would be happy to return for another stay in the future.

We stayed here because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. The units are very well equipped and spacious and there is a very nice looking play area for children. We had a delightful balcony overlooking the countryside and the owner, Jill, was very friendly and welcoming. The motel is only a short drive inland from Paihia, but you... More

We spent 3 nights in Sunseeker cottage, and enjoyed every single aspect of it - the warm welcome, the accessorized units (with additional common area stocked with all the extras), the cozy albeit spacious rooms, and the location (minutes away from attractions and services). Excellent choice for couples!
