“For the best B&B in Bay of Islands look no further.”
Reviewed February 4, 2011

This is the second time we have stayed with Nick and Rob at Baystay. They are the finest hosts,paying great care and attention to every detail. Nothing is too much trouble. Their home is modern, clean, bright and comfortable. Near enough to Paihia, but far enough away for peacefulness.

This was the best B&B of the whole holiday. We were made to feel very welcome and all the local knowledge was great. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Just the right balance - friendly and helpful but still had your own space. Would recommend at least a 3 night break, we stayed 4 nights and would have liked longer.

It is a great honour to be called 'Best B&B or your 4 week tour of NZ' We do our very best to make sure guests have the best experience possible, and we seem to exceed.
Thanks for the compliment!

During our 4 weeks trip around New Zealand we stayed two nights with Nick and Rob. Unfortunately we did not book longer - this was just stunning. When we arrived in the pouring rain we got a warm welcome and a lot of tips what to do in Paihia and surroundings during the next days.
The breakfast is amazing and the views from the balcony so wonderful (on the second day we got good weather so that we could really enjoy that).
Being there really feel like home being so far away from our real home that we were sorry to leave - especially after Nick letting us taste some of his self made honey.
If we get the chance to visit New Zealand again we will definitely go there again.

I spent four day in the Bay of Islands at the Bay Stay, Nick and Rob where the most wellcomeing hosts and very helpful, the rooms are modern and bright with extremley comfortable beds. there is very good selection for breakfast, and it really set you up for the day. And i must tell you the Hot Tub was really great after a long day Walking ans site seeing. Its a little way out but if you are active or have transport, its not a problem.

Baystay B&B is runned by two very friendly guys. They helped us with the booking of a nice cruise in the bay of island. The accomadation is great, good breakfast, good bed and amazing views. We could everyone recommend to stay here for at least two nights.

We stopped at Baystay for 3 nights selected purely from searching the internet. The B&B is in a great location to explore the bay of islands. The hosts were excellent ensuring we had everything, rooms were modern/clean, breakfast was also very good. Internet access was an advantage.
