Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 March 2013

We stayed for 3 nights pior to a cruise in January. This was our first B &B experience in New Zealand and it was wonderful. The accommodation was first class, our room was spacious, clean and modern. We enjoyed using the beautiful pool each day and sitting on the terrace after a day of sightseeing.Breakfast was great with fruit, cereals and eggs cooked to perfection by Phil. Best ever cakes by Wendy (I baked them myself when I returned home). Wendy and Phil also gave us help and advice on how to spend our days in the area.
You won't be disappointed if you stay here.
Thank you Wendy and Phil

We had 3 nights here with Wendy & Phil who were very helpful and gave us a great introduction into New Zealand as it was our first B&B on our holiday of a lifetime.Their house is set high up on the hill overlooking Paihia, quite a long steep walk up after dinner in town! Our room was spacious, clean and modern with air conditioning and an en-suite with a great shower. They even have a swimming pool to cool off in and patio to sit on in the evening.
Breakfast was good with lovely granola, fruit and cereals to choose from prior to being offered 'something cooked'. Each day there were freshly baked cakes called friands with fruits in them, delicious and I now have the recipe to try them at home with my B&B guests!
Thank you Wendy & Phil for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Ask for the cake recipe!

Thank you for your kind review - we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope you have had a chance to try out the friand recipe - it is really such a great thing and a wonderful recipe to share around. I am more than happy to share it, and the flavours just keep changing as the seasons move - latest combination peach and cinnamon (peaches in season) and pear and ginger. Both yummy! Apple time coming up so they will be next I think! I am sure you will wow your guests with them as well, and we hope we can get the chance to come and stay with you in your beautiful area of the UK.

If you are going to Paihia, staying at the Decks of Paihia is a must. The hosts, Wendy and Phil, are the nicest people. Wendy makes these wonderful cakes, friands. A very relaxing atmosphere with a lovely pool, not big but very clean. A first for me was the heated mirror in the bathroom, quite a very pleasant change not having to wipe the mirror when wanting to do one's hair! Everything about Decks of Paihia is wonderful.

Wow - great review thank you so much. Yes, the heated mirrors are a treat aren't they - we saw this idea overseas and were keen to include with our bathrooms when we built the house. Glad you enjoyed the Friands and hope that you wow your family with those magic little treats now you have the recipe.... my latest flavour is Rhubard and cinnamon - Phil picked some lovely fresh Rhubard from the garden at our beach house yesterday - they are scrumptious!

Beautiful Location, Superb rooms, Great Breakfast and great hosts who were so helpful and friendly. All this meant our 2 day stay there was the best accommodation of our 31 day trip to New Zealand. Well placed for trips to the Treaty grounds and for boat trips out of Paihia into the Bay of Islands. Good golf course nearby as well.

Room Tip: all rooms good

We really appreciate your super review and your kind words. New Zealand has some fabulous properties, so we feel honoured that you reviewed our property so highly. This is a beautiful area, and we love it when our guests have a great time here in the Bay of Islands, as we truly enjoy living in this region. Being able to share it with visitors to the country is very special. We love it more when you come back for a 2nd time! There are lots more great golf courses around the North so maybe next time, you can sample some of those as well.

We stayed with Phil and Wendy for 3 nights in February. They have created a really welcoming home for visitors with the perfect balance of friendliness and welcoming whilst also giving us privacy and space. Their house is in a great spot up on the hillside about ten minutes walk out of town. We were grateful for the walk after the wonderful dinners each evening. Unfortunately it rained pretty much all the time we were here but Phil gave us great suggestions of things to do so we were kept entertained and we also used the time to chill out in our very comfortable room and terrace. The house is spotless and very modern and breakfasts provided everything we'd want- freshly baked cake, fresh fruit, eggs, home made muesli etc. don't hesitate to stay here and it was a great price too.

Thank you for the lovely review - it is very much appreciated. We love what we do, and really enjoy sharing our house with our visitors. We very much regret that you weren't able to enjoy some of the beautiful Bay of islands weather that we have been enjoying just this last week or so. It now seems very settled. Hopefully you can return some day to sample some of that and rediscover our stunning area in super weather.

We stopped with Wendy and Phil for 3 nights. We found the rooms and attention to detail to be first class and would love to return when we visit New Zealand in the future.
The room was large and we made us of the deck and pool, and the breakfast was excellant.

This was our first B&B experience in New Zealand and gosh did it give the others a lot to live up to! The property is about a 10min walk from the beachfront but after a lovely meal in the evening you will want the walk! The main benefit of the walk is that the B&B has stunning views and is so peaceful. Sitting by the pool with a beer after a day of sailing was just perfect.

Phil and Wendy were lovely hosts with good restaurant recommendations and amazing breakfasts - the cakes Wendy cooked were especially yummy!

We have a wonderful country and it is with great pleasure we welcome visitors to our home. Thanks for the kind compliments on the friands - they are such a huge hit I will keep them coming!
