Had a excellent stay at this venue. Our hosts were so accommodating. The rooms were outstanding and exceeded our requirements. Great views of Pihia and looking to come back to this accommodation in the summer.

Very friendly service, lovely room, incredibly comfortable bed. All in all a lovely place to stay, just a couple of minor things we noticed that didn't really impact our stay but diminished the quality of the room like the kitchenette which has obviously been redone but the painting not finished

Wonderful views, cozy atmosphere! Definitely can recommend for families or group of friends. Some neighbours downstairs, but usually quite and nice. Paihia is a dream place itself. Friendly people as well as at the house!

Amazing location with a stunning view. Less than a 5 minute walk to the pier, restaurants, supermarket, etc. You have to cope with walking back up the hill on the way back, but it isn't that bad and the view is worth it. Everything in the room was thought of. The furnishings, bathrooms, appliances were all updated, and the amenities... More
