“Truly Outstanding”
Reviewed March 5, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This is without doubt the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in and it's a credit to Brett and Karen. Wonderfully presented, very clean and fully equipped beyond all expectations makes it just about perfect. Great views from the balconies and a fantastic place for happy hour. We certainly got a little fitter from the walk up the hill, but that's a very small price to pay. I even managed 7 Kingfish aboard the local Earl Grey Fishing Charter (thanks Steve) which was beautifully treated for dinner at the local Chinese. We will certainly be back.

“Stunning views with absolutely everything you need to relax”
Reviewed February 8, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Brett's home in Paihia is amazing. As soon as you walk onto on of the three balconies the view is jaw dropping, with the house having everything you need. Our entire family loved the location and after travelling around N.Z. it was a perfect way to finish our holiday.

We are intending to return to N.Z. with Paihia definitely on our list. Would re book this accommodation in an instant.

Thanks Brett.

“Wonderful 6 night stay”
Reviewed January 14, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We had a lovely stay at the house, everything was perfect, the house is well equipped and the views stunning. Yes the road is steep but at the top of any steep road is an amazing view. We would definitely stay again.

“Wish it was ours!”
Reviewed July 13, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent 6 glorious nights at this stunning property. Our aim was to relax and unwind having spent a few hectic weeks on the Lions Rugby Tour. We could not have chosen better! The place is immaculate. Tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and equipped. They really have thought of everything! We were a party of four adults and loved having so much space and comfort. The views from all three balconies are spectacular.
Paihia town is a short walk away with a lovely selection of eateries and small shops and lots of lovely boat trips to enjoy. Beware the steep hill on the return walk back from town - we all felt a lot fitter by the end of our stay!

“Superb place to stay - highly recommended”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Spacious, stunning views, very clean and comfortable. The place was even better than we expected. It had everything we needed and is in a great location from which to explore the area. We loved our two nights there and wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Brett and Karen were always very friendly in their communication to us and gave us excellent directions and instructions about the property. Would highly recommend and definitely stay there again.
