“Private beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Imagine waking up to the sound of waves lapping on a sandy beach inviting you to a swim before breakfast. And Jane's good company and her wonderful breakfast on the balcony of this perfect B&B with stunning views of the Bay of Islands.
This was our last b&b stay in NZ and the memory of it keeps us warm in our cold Danish winter. Thank you Jane

Agnete and Soren, it should be us thanking you! Your enthusiasm for the beach was inspiring - and encouraged me not to miss a single day in the water myself! You are a lovely couple - we loved meeting you and sharing some stories together. NZ is a better place for your visit. May springtime come soon for you in Denmark!

We spent 4 wonderful days here and were looked after fabulously by Jane, Doug and Alice. Awesome sea views, spacious rooms, large kitchen dining area, large modern bathroom, air conditioning, and a really comfy kingsize bed... not to mention the delicious cooked breakfasts every morning. Jane is a fabulous host who has every detail covered in this delightful, self-contained B&B, and ensures your privacy is paramount. Cannot recommend more highly... we will definitely be back!

Totally fulfilled our need for a mini breakaway from family. Peaceful, private & quiet, stunning views, but not too far from the town. Lovely, friendly hosts who served us delicious breakfasts whilst we were spoilt with the magnificent view out over the bay. SO easy to relax and enjoy. Clean and cosy bedroom with large kitchen, living areas with access to a small courtyard and gardens, leading to a pathway access to the beach. Perfect place to recharge, we'll be back !.

Room Tip: Both units ideal

Thankyou Jane and Doug for a wonderful stay in Paihia at your B&B!
The view from the bedroom and breakfast balcony is hands down the best view of the Bay in Paihia! Weather was perfect and Jane and Doug were so welcoming! do hope to return again soon! Many Thanks!

Nice little B&B about a 10 minute beach walk from the town, so nice and quiet. Good hosts, breaky and views. It was very pleasant to just sit outside the room and read a book (no TV in my room, which was good). The WiFi wasn't strong enough to reach my iPhone, so had to move closer to the house, which wasn't a problem. There's a good 5 hour walk you can do around the bay to Russell, and then grab the ferry back, which was a healthy way to unwind and see a variety of scenery such as bays, mangroves and forests. Jane gave me a slice of home made cake as a parting gift, which was very yummy!

Thanks Bill - we enjoyed meeting you and loved your enthusiasm for the long walk around the Bay . thank you for showing us how easily it can be done! Your comments regarding the WiFi are appreciated - you are the second person to have had issues recently so we have already contacted Telecom for a stronger aerial to improve our signal. And yes, we deliberately keep our downstairs room TV-free for those, like you, who prefer no distraction to total switch off and enjoying the Bay.

Had a lovely time staying At the Beach. Fantastic views, great accommodation, friendly hosts, and yummy breakfasts.
Will certainly be staying again - the view from the huge picture window in the bedroom is worth the trip :)

A wonderful start to our great Kiwi road trip; our Yachtview apartment was spacious with stunning views of the sunrise, a supremely comfortable bed, modern bathroom, kitchen facilities if required and a very warm welcome from Jane with tea and home-baking. Excellent breakfasts served in the sun-room overlooking the Bay, great advice on local restaurants, we enjoyed the walk along the beach to the village and preferred to be on the edge of Paihia as it was quiet and peaceful.
Thank you Jane and Doug, we hope to be back.... Fern & Charles
