We stayed here over New Years eve 2012/13. We spent a lot of time choosing where to stay in Paihia and we weren't disappointed in the Retreat. As other reviewers have said its outside Paihia, which is on the other side of a steep hill. But as we weren't looking for accommodation right in town this suited us well. The views were stunning and the setting is beautiful. The owners were very helpful and the studio unit we stayed in was clean and comfortable. One word of warning, depending on the time of year you stay, you need mosquito repellant (we'd forgotten ours), we were all bitten a lot, I had 40 bites on one leg alone.
