“Clean and modern”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We stayed in the garden suite here for the last two nights of our NZ adventure and it was such a comfortable place to finish up our trip. The directions from the hosts to the parking areas were easy to follow and they were very welcoming. Since they live upstairs there were a few times that we could hear them, but it was nothing obtrusive. The suite was large and extremely clean, we found it very comfortable. They had some great information in their guest notebook and Peter was helpful with restaurant recommendations as well. It was easy walking distance to the restaurants and beach front, but be careful walking back in the dark, it was tricky trying to find the driveway on foot! I loved listening to the birds in the mornings and evenings, what an awesome way to wake up to the tuis and wood pigeons. The views from the windows in the living and bedrooms as well as the front patio were wonderful. The one thing to note for the suite is that the kitchen doesn't have a traditional cooktop, but there is a bbq available for use on the patio and a plug in saute pan thing so you can do some cooking. For us we were fine using the microwave...there are great restaurants just down the street for dinner! We were incredibly happy with our stay here and would love to stay again on our next trip to the North Island!

Thanks very much for taking the time to review us. Yes, it’s particularly relaxing being nestled in the bush away from busy roads, listening to the birds and having wonderful views of the Bay of Islands, and yet being so close to “everything”. Maybe on your next visit you may also see our resident hedgehog as he meanders around garden or hear the kiwi’s calling in the night.
Kind Regards
Helen & Peter

We stayed in the Tree Tops Studio Apartment for 4 nights last month and discovered the previous great reviews are spot on.
It was very quiet & private, yet only a short walk to the waterfront, cafes and shops - a fantastic place to celebrate my 50th birthday! The apartment was just the right size for the two of us, had a comfy bed and was well fitted out. The free Wifi was reliable and greatly appreciated. We particularly enjoyed the view across to Russell from our breakfast table.
Tranquil is the best word to describe our experience.

Spent a few days in at Abri Appartments in July. Paihia turned on perfect weather and the accommodation was just as good. Beautuful views from Treetops unit, great facilities, cosy during the cooler nights and close to eateries. Would love to come again.

By far the best accommodation we had during our last NZ trip.
We stayed in their King Suite, which consists of big living room/kitchen, a separate bathroom, a huge porch with a BBQ and a huge bedroom with a super king bed (very comfy). We were welcomed by the friendly hosts, which gave us wonderful tips on the town and the region. One of the greatest things is the view one has from all rooms. One sees the bay of island and Russell in the distance.
If we came back to Paihia, we would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Almost don't want to tell anyone about this lovely place we discovered!
Lovely well appointed and set out apartment surrounded by native trees and birds. so great privacy and serenity. Really did feel like we were staying in a tree house. Fab views out to sea. Even if the weather is nasty you can just enjoy Paihia from here! Very friendly service, nothing's a bother. Immaculately clean and all the little things you may possibly need are there. So handy to all the attractions of Paihia, so can just park the car up and stroll to town. Could not fault anything here. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in Tree House. Palms looks like it has good views. The third room is under main house, but...

We stayed for two nights in the Palms unit. This is a geat spot - views, easy walk to jetty and shops, and fabulous accommodation. The unit is new and clean. Plenty of space for a couple. Great spa bath and deck. Comfortable bed. Quiet. And very well run by nice people. Doesn't get any better.

Stayed in Tree Tops for 3 nights, with possibly the best views in Paihia, wish we could have stayed longer. Spotlessly clean, & with everything you could possibly need. Short walking distance to shops & restaurants should you not wish to cook in your apartment. Great to have the little extras like cling wrap, foil,etc
Also many thanks for the thoughtful turning on of heater & lights as we were late arriving.
We will definitely be back.
