Almost don't want to tell anyone about this lovely place we discovered!
Lovely well appointed and set out apartment surrounded by native trees and birds. so great privacy and serenity. Really did feel like we were staying in a tree house. Fab views out to sea. Even if the weather is nasty you can just enjoy Paihia from here! Very friendly service, nothing's a bother. Immaculately clean and all the little things you may possibly need are there. So handy to all the attractions of Paihia, so can just park the car up and stroll to town. Could not fault anything here. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in Tree House. Palms looks like it has good views. The third room is under main house, but...

Hi Sirri
Thanks so much for choosing to stay with us in the Treetops during the recent Jazz & Blues Festival and also for sharing your experience with us. It was great to meet you all and lovely to hear that you had a wonderful time. We'll look forward to seeing you at the next Festival, or maybe just when you need a relaxing break away. :-) :-)
Kind Regards
Helen & Peter

We stayed for two nights in the Palms unit. This is a geat spot - views, easy walk to jetty and shops, and fabulous accommodation. The unit is new and clean. Plenty of space for a couple. Great spa bath and deck. Comfortable bed. Quiet. And very well run by nice people. Doesn't get any better.

Stayed in Tree Tops for 3 nights, with possibly the best views in Paihia, wish we could have stayed longer. Spotlessly clean, & with everything you could possibly need. Short walking distance to shops & restaurants should you not wish to cook in your apartment. Great to have the little extras like cling wrap, foil,etc
Also many thanks for the thoughtful turning on of heater & lights as we were late arriving.
We will definitely be back.

Great place to stay, self catering using the BBQ on the deck overlooking the bay. Top quality accommodation and superb, helpful service. Situated a few blocks back from the sea front in an elevated, quiet location providing stunning views to the bay and Russell. A short walk to the beach, town center and wharf, with plenty of restaurants. Facilities include a well equipped laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer, superb for a family of 3.
We will be back in 2015.

We were delighted to have found this beautiful place! Staying in Paihia for a week we wanted somewhere peaceful, attractive and with self catering facilities. Our villa at Abri Apartments fulfilled every requirement and more. Well designed and built of timber, the two free standing villas blend into the private hillside garden and face a superb view of the the Bay of Islands.
Good design of the spotlessly clean interior as well as provision of all amenities (the kitchenette really was fully equipped for self catering) made this a very comfortable and beautiful home for a week. The friendly and helpful owners added to the pleasure of our stay, as did the kiwi which called out across the hillside morning and evening!

Great choice for self-catering accomodation. The apartments come with all amenities needed, a great bathroom with both shower and bathtub, good kitchenette etc. Very quiet location, surrounded by trees, but within easy walking distance to town/beach. Superb views from the lovely terrace. Would definitely stay again!

Abri is such a lovely place to stay; spacious, spotlessly clean, lovely friendly hosts and the most amazing views from a great location. We stayed in the suite for four nights at the end of our holiday in NZ and couldn’t have asked for a nicer place. Thank you Helen and Peter for making our stay so enjoyable and yes we did hear the Kiwi on our last night.

Room Tip: The suite has much better views than the separate appartments
