Modern accomodation of high standard, with a pool to cool down on a hot day. Nice, well appointed rooms with a balcony above the pool. Phil and Wendy are attentive and helpful hosts. The house is set on a hill above Paihia, about twenty minutes walk down to the landing stage and beach. Boats go across to Russell every 20 minutes. The Waitangi Treaty Grounds are a short distance to the north and worth a visit – the ‘cultural show’ was, in our view, better than the one in Rotorua. There is a pleasant walk up the Estuary from the Treaty Grounds to Haruru Falls, passing on a board-walk, at one point, over the mangrove swamp. Our hosts also recommended us to go for their own favourite walk on the Mahinepua Peninsula, an hour or so to the north of Paihia – a great recommendation and a lovely walk. There are a number of possible places to eat in Paihia at various levels. Our favourite (which some of our fellow guests sniffed at!) was Shippeys – a boat moored up near the Waitangi Bridge that does superb fish and chips, served in paper on the upper deck with great views of the sunset over the estuary. Don’t feed the seagulls!
