“Gorgeous Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Not our first time in Paihia but definitely the best so many options for accomadation it is hard to know where to go. After staying at the Pioneer Waterfront Apartments we wouldn't stay anywhere else. For a family getaway the apartments are amazing spacious, clean and comfortable there was everything we needed and more. The view from our apartment was beautiful and the sunny large deck is great to kick back and watch the boats. Mark and Viv are outstanding hosts that go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. The location is ideal as it is within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and wharf. A memorable place to stay for all the right reasons we look forward to returning.

Lovely resort and great accommodation. I agree with the other reviewers, the hosts work really hard to make all their guests feel really welcome. A tropical storm hit whilst we were staying, but our place was fine, due to the effort Mark and Viv put in beforehand.
Spacious, well located, and very comfortable appartment, we would love to return there one day.
Eat at the Paihia Fishing Club, above the Thai restaurant on the main street. The fish chowder was one of the best ever!

Room Tip: All rooms have a partial view of the bay, or an unobstructed view if you choose the front wing. We h...

We had 9 days in this lovely apartment from 10-19 March 2014 and would thoroughly recommend it. Mine hosts Viv and Mark go the extra mile to help and make you feel at home. The apartment was spacious, with TV in lounge and master bedroom and a kitchen a pleasure to cook in. We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Great sea views from every room. Very quiet and BBQs on patios. Didn't use fitness centre.

First, Paihia is a nice small beach community in The Bay of Islands on the North Island of New Zealand. The city is small enough to walk from end to end, but filled with many restaurants, bars, and shops. If you plan on playing Kauri Cliffs Golf Course, I would definitely choose Paihia over Kerikeri as your home base. Pioneer Apartments are all 2 bedroom units with full kitchens and the necessary cooking and dining essentials. We had one of the Penthouse apartments in the rear, overlooking the swimming pool and spa. Though the view was somewhat blocked by the front building, we still had a nice view of the ocean from our bedroom, dining room, and the spacious balcony. We never used the swimming pool because the weather was perfect, about 70 degrees, so we never needed to jump in and cool off. We did use the gas grill on the pool deck to cook twice and that was a nice addition. Mark and Vivian are great hosts, responding promptly to all of our needs. When I went to play golf at Waitangi Golf Club, Mark arranged for me to join the Men's Club event, and even loaned me his push cart. We stayed four nights at the end of our four week tour of both islands. It was nice to give the car a break and just relax for a few days. We would definitely stay there again.
