We thoroughly enjoyed a three night stay in one of the studios and considered the accommodation to be very good value for money.
The rooms are large and airy with more than adequate kitchen facilities and the bathroom had recently been refurbished to a very high standard. All rooms have a private balcony with a spectacular view to the west of Paihia - see photos. Other welcome touches include a garaged parking space (which kept the car cool), free wi-fi and laundry facilities (for a small charge) with lots of outdoor drying space.
Barbara is a fabulous host who was both welcoming and knowledgeable - speak to her first if you are considering a dolphin watch trip. The jug of fresh milk brought to our room after a 4 hour drive from Auckland was delightful.
We liked the location too which is a 5 to 10 minute walk from the waterfront so slightly away from the bustle of the town.
Thank you for what was a great start to our trip.
