Spent a few nights at Case Bella in Pahia. Quiet area, friendly hosts, comfy and spacious room. Free use of a kayak which was great fun around the Bay. Host even wheeled it to and from the beach for us. All you need in the unit for a self catering holiday. One block from the beach and only a short...

Spent three nights here. Motel is very clean and tidy. It is in a quiet street, but an easy walk to cafes etc. Our son loved the pool and going for a paddle in the kayak. Would return and stay again if we get the chance.

This Motel has an appealing swimming pool and guests may also use the tennis court next door. Location is just off the main drag...

Totally stoked to have stayed here for two nights and wished it could have been forever. Gary and his wife were beyond accomodating and the friendliest people you will ever meet. Rooms really nice and clean. Pool and spa a nice and relaxing way to end your day. Kayak hire is free and a great way to explore to bays...

Stayed at this property while attending the Bay of Islands Food and Wine Festival - it was a little walk away from the main centre but very handy all the same. It was clean and tidy and very reasonably priced - proprietors very welcoming and friendly and I would return.

First visit here with my family. It is a very comfortable and warm stay. Recommended. You could find everything you needed in the room - hair dryer, tea, coffee, milk, heater, etc. We even cook in the room ourselves with the kitchen attached, everything is good.
