When we arrived mark was very helpful in showing us the apartment. It was huge 2 bed rooms,fully outfitted kitchen , 2 tv's , very clean, no smells and what a view overlooking the beach 50 meters away. Great price considering what you get. If we come back this is where we would stay for a week at least ,such a relaxed place and a great hub for day trips.
The sea food restaurant next door is great! Almost heaven!

We arrived tired after a long drive and received a warm welcome. N othing was too much trouble. The apt was very comfortabl and well equipped. It did not feel like a motel. The hot tub really was the cherry on the top and we were loathe to leave the comforts provided. We will return.

Excellent apartment with tremendously helpful and friendly staff in a wonderful location overlooking the Bay. The rooms are impeccable and spacious. The staff always welcome you with a smile and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. I count myself as fortunate to find such a superb apartment complex with such superb staff. Mark and Viv just couldn't be more helpful. Although the apartment was wonderful, it was Mark and Viv's helpfulness that made the stay just perfect.

Room Tip: A room with a view over the Bay, is just wonderful.

Mark could not have been more informative and helpful. We learnt what was best to do to maximise our short stay in Paihia, and where the best value meals were in town. Could not have been happier! I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We arrived about 8.30pm to were we had booked the Able Tasman Lodge but they had stuffed up our booking and had given our room away, We were very angry as we had driven from Whitianga and were in no mood to find somewhere else.
But they had done us a big favour as we started to look around and by chance parked outside the Pioneer waterfront apartments.
We decided to have a look and to find out how much as we were staying for 4 nights.
We got a big surprise the rooms were perfect and the price was cheaper than Able Tasman Lodge and 10 out of 10 views.
The hosts were great and made our stay a very pleasant one.
Don't look anywhere else just stay here.

Where to start. Great location, directly across the road from a nice beach, minutes from the centre of town, and convenient to everything around. Apartment we stayed in (6), was very spacious and had a great view across the water. When we first arrived thought the bar/restaurant next door would have been an issue noise wise, but no such dramas occurred. And finally have to mention Mark and Viv for their first class help. Spot on with all suggestions and very knowledgeable of the area. Nothing is to much. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Would highly recommend the apartments to anyone wanting to stay in the Bay of Islands. Excellent location, very comfortable and modern apartments just a short walk from the centre of Paihia. Andy's upside down writing was a marvel and restaurant recommendations and places to visit were top notch - thank you!
