We are not bed and breakfast kind of people, but this is not your typical b&b. we stayed 3 nights and we felt like we had the place to ourselves with 2 other rooms rented. we choose the top floor, the romantica suite and loved it. the bed was really comfortable and the shower was excellent. best surprise was a nice flat iron! the view was beautiful and you are within walking distance to everything. inge booked our outings and picked the perfect ones for us. we weren't sure we wanted to do the trip to the cape (cape reinga), but after talking to inge, decided to go and it was the best tour we took the entire trip. the breakfast was incredible. we had to leave super early one morning and inge made a breakfast tray and brought it to our room. her attention to detail shows in everything at chalet romantica and i can't wait to return. there is a hot tub and pool that we did not get a chance to use but looked spectacular. next time!

firstly, thankyou so much for having us! you were wonderful to our and our son.
we stayed here in March 2013 for 3 nights.
the room was lovely, and they were so accomodating with our then 6 month old baby.
breakfast was much more than we expected, and the hosts were lovely.
the location was great, and we loved the spa and pool, which you get to use privately.
i couldnt fault this place one bit!

We chose Chalet Romantica based on research before departure for NZ, and our choice was completely vindicated. Inge is a thoughtful and intuitive host and went out of her way to make our stay memorable. The facilities are comprehensive, the views of the Bay stunning and breakfasts delicious. We hope to return some day.

Last and best stay on North Island... and maybe all of NZ (over a month of stays)! A very welcoming, friendly and very helpful hostess in Inge! Loved the Bellvista room with beautiful balcony and great views over the Bay to Russell. Breakfasts were delightful with many courses of interesting and varied dishes.
Close to all restaurants, shops and ferry in Paihia for trips around the amazing Bay of Islands.
Would definitely stay here again on next trip. Impressed by the pool, jacuzzi and fitness equipment... but unfortunately our tight schedule did not allow enough time to enjoy.
Bedggood Close lived up to its name!

Chalet Romantica was a lovely relaxing experience for us.
Inge and Ed are fabulous hosts and the breakfasts are just the best way to start your day with amazing service, views, food and company.
This place must be one of the best kept secrets of Pahia!
We were in Pahia for a romantic celebration of where we fell in love ten years ago and Chalet Romantica was the perfect icing on the cake making it a truly memorable anniversary for us.
