Decks of Paihia Luxury Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 20 Paihia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We opted to stay in a more laid-back setting than Russell, with all the hype, and we were so glad we did. Paihia has better access to some great restaurants, like The Pear Tree, and the Treaty grounds, so we were happy to be in Paihia, AND atop the hill overlooking the bay was pretty cool, too. The room was wonderful, the breakfasts fantastic, and the accommodation perfect in every way. I would rush back there in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Best to have a car. The house sits on top of a pretty steep hill.

Second time around as good as the first. Came here in 2010 on a walk-in. Glad we found it, wouldn't stay anywhere else in the BOI. Great hosts, very helpful. Lovely breakfasts - Phil's eggs and Wendy's museli second to none! Great rooms and great pool with beautiful views. Luxury B&B accommodaton in an ideal location for touring the BOI.

Fantastic luxury B & B in the Bay of Islands. 1st class in every respect. Wonderful hosts who will do anything for you, great location, rooms well appointed with an inviting pool outside. Breakfast is great in a very friendly atmosphere. All this within walking distance of Paihia and a short ferry trip across to Russell. Highly recommended.

Very were much like other travellers to the area.We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip round NZ and it set the tone for the rest of our holiday. Great area to use as a base for the Bay of Islands area. Don't bother staying anywhere else - this place is a real gem. Excellent quality, excellent location and open & friendly hosts. Fantastic value. The property is set on a hill over looking Paihia beach front. A reasonable but easy and comfortable walk to the town front/centre. All rooms are very smart and open onto the decks over the garden & swimming pool.Phil and Wendy were great hosts. and helped us with trip and dinner recommendations. And thank you both for the huge efforts you took to get my husband's reading glasses back to him - with the help of observant locals. He left his glasses on the beach front at Russell.They were loaded on to the Russell ferry and posted onto us in Napier. Thank you for your kind actions. Great job!

Thank you both so much for such a generous and kind review. We are very happy you were reunited with the glasses. That is the wonderful thing about living in such a small friendly area - it is pretty easy to find something that goes amiss if you put a little effort into it. We both really enjoyed meeting you and having you stay with us in our home. It would be great if our paths crossed again in the future. Keep in touch. Wendy & Phil

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip round NZ and it set the standard for the rest of our accommodation. Our room was a well appointed en suite with a balcony overlooking the pool, which was very welcome after a hot day travelling. Phil and Wendy were great hosts, friendly and attentive. Breakfasts were excellent, with plenty of choice and delicious freshly baked muffins. The house is on a hill above Paihia, with a 20 minute walk down to restaurants and the shore. Waitangi Treaty grounds are nearby and it is worth taking the ferry across to Russell with its old colonial style houses and beaches. We can highly recommend this property.

Lovely kind review - thank you so much. Glad the rest of NZ was just as enjoyable for you. The weather certainly co-operated for you - although I think now it is payback time for us. Had a bit of rain this last week. The farmers will be happy that is the most important thing. Again, your kind words much appreciated.
