Stayed 3 nights beginning of January and couldn't fault our stay. Phil and Wendy are lovely hosts and prepare excellent breakfasts. Lovely choice and freshly baked friands each day with freshly brewed coffee. Bedroom was an excellent size with a large bed and great modern bathroom. Access to the deck and pool. Nice to sit outside for an evening drink listening to the kiwis in the gardens. Parking on site. Ten minutes walk downhill to the town but quite a steep climb back. We had a brilliant stay and would definitely recommend.
Thank you Wendy & Phil for a very comfortable stay. Our room was delightful and opened out onto a lovely pool area. The breakfasts were really nice and cooked by Phil. We stayed 3 nights and would love to have stayed longer. Pahia itself was great lots going on. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend a stay at the Decks of Paihia.
We stayed 4 nights at the Decks with superb hosts Wendy & Phil. The property is huge and very well appointed. Lovely bedroom with aircon and fab shower room and access to the deck and the pool. Good heart breakfasts too.
It is a good 10 minute walk down hill into the town but when you’ve had your dinner it’s a steep hike back up however some restaurants offer a free ride home.
I stayed at the Decks of Paihia with Phil and Wendy for over 2 weeks from the end of November to mid December 2018 and had a truly fantastic time.The place itself is wonderful and you are looked after by 2 incredible hosts.My room surpassed all expectations-very comfortable bed,amazing bathroom with large walk in shower area,tea/ cofffee making facilities,fridge,television,patio doors onto decking overlooking the lovely pool with an idyllic outside seating area for a lovely glass of finest NZ wine as the sunsets in the evening.It was perfect.
Delicious breakfasts with cereals,fresh fruit,juices,cooked options,tea and coffee not to mention Wendy’s unbelievable home made daily cakes.OMG.
The entire property is spotlessly clean and very quiet indeed and by far the best b/b I stayed in whilst travelling around NZ for over 6 weeks.
Phil and Wendy looked after me superbly during my stay and I can’t thank them enough for their kindness,care and generosity.Within a very short space of time the Decks became home to me and Phil and Wendy became firm friends and it was with a heavy heart when it became time to leave.
If you are in the Bay of Islands/Paihia area then the Decks of Paihia is a must place to stay.It will be a highlight of your journey and never to be forgotten.Thank you so much to you both.Love .Dan.
We stayed at the Decks on our trip. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The deck and pool were a great place to hang before dinner.
The walk into town was fun and the star lit sky walk home allowed for deserts. Some of the restaurants offer a free taxi back if required but the walk was pleasant if somewhat slower.
The breakfast was loverly and cooked to order if required, I found the continental and coffee sufficient.
If you want somewhere away from the main town this is a great place to stay.
