We stayed in Ruth and John's apartment, 3 bedrooms, kitchen and large lounge in May 2011 for one week. The facilities are excellent in fact when the wireless internet didn't appear to work they supplied an usb key to use.
Apartment met all our needs and expectations and has a great view over the town and harbour. We had booked sight unseen over the internet; they responded immediately to our booking and to any query.
Ruth and John were very helpful and accomodating during our stay.
Had a great time doing all the touristy things in the Bay of Islands; fishing, sailing, eating, parasailing, driving.
A great place to stay and a great area to visit

Thank you Ruth and John for a wonderful stay at Bay of Islands. You were most helpful and gave us our own space. We stayed in the apartment with two young children and my parents and there was enough room for us all. The beds and couches were very comfortable, lots of little extras like bathroom products and the kitchen is equipped very well. Would love to stay again some time, but for longer!

This is a geat place to stay. It has excellent views over the township and is in easy walking distance to the centre of Paihia.The facilities are more than adequate but what made it special for us was the outstanding, but non invasive, hospitality of the hosts. Highly recommended!

A lovely little cottage surrounded by native bush and a great view of the Paihia township and waterfront.
It was a shame we did not have great weather but the cottage was very inviting and we felt at home and were not diasppointed that we spent a lot of time enjoying the comfort of the cottage. The hosts also provide a great selection of DVDs, board games, puzzles etc to keep you entertained. The bed was also very comfortable and the shower very spacious.
Waking up to the sound of the Tui's outside the windows was lovely.
This was a perfect 4 day getaway for the two of us to leave our work commitments behind.
We came home very relaxed wishing it had of lasted longer.

We stayed over labour weekend with family. The apartment was easy to find and we were welcomed by the owner who gave us some very useful tips about Paihia - Peppercorn restaurant is a must. Parking is fine for two cars max. and the driveway to the property is perfectly accessible. We were a group of 4 although the place could sleep up to 9 (including pull out sofa) however we felt that would feel fairly cramped.

The apartment is a walk or short drive out of the main hub of Paihia. The views are wonderful and we were lucky with weather which meant we could make good use of the barbeque and patio during our stay.

The apartment is smartly decorated and spacious. Fittings are new and the kitchen is well appointed. There are washing and drying facilities in the bathroom and the seperate toilet to bathroom is really convenient.

There is a pump heater and heaters in the rooms which made a real difference as the weather was still quite cool. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.
