I arrived in Paihia late one winters night. I was cold, fed up with driving, tired and I had no idea what accommodation was available. I was told about the Twin Pines Tourist Park because it was the best valve for money and is in a great location. When I arrived Dick and Kate (the owners) made me feel so welcome. I stayed in one of the A-framed cottages that can sleep up to six people. I had such a good nights sleep on a really comfortable bed. Bliss! I stayed for a week. The amenities are great. There is a large kitchen and a cozy lounge. It is all very clean and well organized. I was truly impressed. Dick and Katie seem to really enjoy what they do and it shows. In the morning, walk down through a gate at the end of the park, and sit on the bank by the falls. A great place for a picnic. I have stayed at the Twin Pines Tourist Park twice now and will definitely be returning. Treat yourself to a trip and stay at the Twin Pines Tourist Park.
