        Extremely welcoming - wonderful views and hospitality”

        You couldn’t ask for a more welcoming stay. Paul and Barb welcomed us with open arms and offered lots of tips on what to see in the area, as well as places to eat. Breakfasts were always something to look forward to and we made sure we got our daily fix of the view from the balcony. Yes it is a little way from Paihia itself but it adds to the charm of the place and also the wonderful views. We were sorry to leave and wished we had spent more time here. If we visit New Zealand again this will definitely be at the top of our list to visit and stay.
