We stayed for 2 nights here, and only wish it could have been more.
We only met one host, Rob. He was so friendly and helpful in every way. Whether it was to talk about the area, or New Zealand as a whole.
We had the river view room. We booked the cheaper option, but on arrival, no one else was staying, so Rob put us in the River view room which was very nice.
Breakfast was amazing. We were offered everything you can imagine, including freshly baked croissants, and freshly squeezed juice. Amazing. We ate breakfast in the dining room, looking over the river, which runs into the Haruru Falls.
It is like a little piece of paradise, and you will want a house just like this.
It is about 5 minutes drive to Paihia, which is perfect.
I cannot praise this place enough. It was so much better than some hotels could ever be. Every area of the house was immaculate and the hot tub on the decking out the back was amazing. Sitting in there looking down the hill at the river was so relaxing.
The bedroom was massive with a television and a computer which we were offered use of free of charge. A nice touch I thought.
Rob made us feel like a friend staying to visit rather than a complete stranger. If New Zealand wasn't so far away, I would holiday here every year in the Baystay!
