We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by Norm like friends rather than guests. After a good chat and some terrific information about the area, we were shown to our room which was unit 3. We had requested this room in advance and we were happy this request was granted.The room is large and very comfortable, with all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay. There's a good collection of DVDs to borrow and a varied collection of books to read (you even get to take one with you if you don't finish it in time!). The pool area is lovely. The view is spectacular. On Norm's recommendation we watched the view as the sun set behind us. Awesome - a must do. We found the location to be ideal - close enough to town (we had a car) nearby to attractions but far enough away to be incredibly quiet except for the sounds of nature, not to mention away from town lights affording a spectacular view of the stars at night. We definitely recommend Cook's Lookout as a great place to stay in Paihia. Thanks Norm and Shelagh.
