About
Description
Welcome, Kia Ora! We offer high quality B&B accommodation with friendly homestay hospitality. Set in 1.6ha/4acres of native bush and gardens on the Waitangi River, we are conveniently located just More outside Paihia township on the way to Kerikeri - a great base from which to explore The Bay and the rest of Northland. We are both born-and-bred Kiwi's and we’re proud of our beautiful little country! We have travelled extensively in the Pacific, some parts of Europe, and of course throughout New Zealand. Paul is a qualified Scuba Diver and Barb’s interests include New Zealand history. Enjoy a quiet stroll through our native bush and down to the Waitangi River at the bottom of our garden. Feed our friendly alpacas, collect eggs from our chickens and meet our gentle short-haired cat. Cheers, Paul & Barb Less
