This time share is supremely located with excellent services and friendly staff. The unit we stayed in was clean, provided everything we needed and was so close to everything we wanted. Right across the street from the beach. Laundry facilities were great. Due to the winter season we did not use the pool or patio but they looked amazing. I... More

Great location across the road from the beach. Not far from Paihia centre, with an abundance of wonderful cafes, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Also close to the Paihia (passenger) and Opua (vehicle) ferries as well as departure points for various tours and walks. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean, bathroom etc seemed reasonably recently... More

Three adult friends we enjoyed the spacious,spotlessly clean and well appointed unit on the upper floor with an unobstructed view of the harbour, So many interesting shops and a variety of eateries within easy walking distance. Informative and helpful staff.with great local knowledge. The total experience that makes us determined to return to Busby.

Arrived late, but called and they gave us code to get into our room - nicely decorated, with all we needed for the next morning and the rest of our week stay. Booked trips they knew we would appreciate and gave other advice we might have missed - i.e. the Hot Springs, treaty signing place and great restaurants

Welcomed by v efficient staff. Everything we needed in unit, top linen & plenty of it. Unit strait out of the 80s (could do with a rev up) but clean & well organised, however, this is more than made up by location/ sea front & easy walk to everything in Paihia. Someone stole our knickers from the drying rack during... More

We have a note in each unit respectfully asking all guest to dry all washing in their rooms or in the dryers/drying rack in the laundry. The staff would have moved your knickers to the laundry as it is not fair on other guest who are relaxing on holiday to provide a view marred with a rack full of someone... More

Spent a week here in June 2016 , even though it was winter time the place in the Bay of Islands was fantastic. Busby Manor itself is in the perfect central location to everything and the apartments are very comfortable and well maintained. The one bedroom apartment is compact but it has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We... More

Good welcome from excellent staff to comfortable, clean and well set-up 1 bedroom upstairs unit. We had all we needed for a week of R&R. Free WiFi allowance was good. Staff couldn't be better - helpful at all times and attentive to every request. Views from unit were a bonus. No noise from neighbours.

Just had a week here with two NZ friends. Great position, walk to everything... Sharon manages Busby Manor so well, and is very helpful, and the whole complex is clean and tidy and freshly painted. Highly recommend staying here.
