Abri Apartments has two unique chalets individually set apart for total privacy featuring awesome sea views, open plan living, double spa bath & full kitchen facilities.

Also available is a one bedroom Suite with a Super King or Twin Bed option, sea views, kitchenette and shower facilities.

The three accommodation units each offer the comfort of a home away from home; each with their own private entrance, a deck with wonderful sea views and a BBQ; plus luxurious details to surprise you during your stay. The apartments are spacious and tastefully furnished with comfortable lounge and dining areas.

It is an easy 3 minute stroll to the beach or into central Paihia Township where you will find a variety of shops, cafes, and restaurants; as well as to the Paihia Wharf where all of the Bay of Islands dolphin tours and scenic cruises depart.

All this makes Abri Apartments an ideal location for a romantic holiday retreat for couples; plus being the ideal location to base yourself while you explore the many spectacular sights and activities of the Bay of Islands.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in The Palms which had excellent views over Paihia and the Bay of Islands. The accommodation was of a very high standard and all that was needed for a perfect stay.

The kitchen was very well equipped albeit there was no oven but there was a large barbecue on the deck.

The bathroom was again very well equipped and the shower was one of the best I have used.

The owner, Helen Hadfield, ensured she met us on our arrival and said goodbye when we left. She was also readily available to answer and any queries we had.

The accommodation is near to the centre of Piahia where there are plenty of restaurants and shops but is far enough away to ensure it is quiet both day & night.

I will certainly be recommending Abri Apartments to all my friends and colleagues as the perfect accommodation when in the Bay of Islands

The view sets the stage for a wonderful stay! We chose the Suite and enjoyed every minute of our stay there with Helen and Peter. The accommodation is classy, clean and comfortable. The view from the living room, bedroom, and deck is stunning. The apartment is well-appointed with everything you will need, and there is a laundry at the side of the deck (in a laundry room) to boot! Helen and and Peter are super nice and very friendly hosts. You can walk to town for activities instead of paying to park, but you are far enough away that it is peaceful and quiet. We would come back in a heartbeat! Thanks Peter and Helen!

Abri Apartments has stunning views with a great layout and easy access to the town centre. The apartments are well laid out and nestled in the trees, you feel private yet look out over the bay. Abri is well laid out with everything you need for a weekend away, including a spa bath that helps you relax immediately. Highly recommend staying here, it is certainly my favourity place to stay in New Zealand.

We stayed at Treetops and Palms, both individual chalet style apartments with absolutely everything we could possibly need. Very close to town, 5 min walk to shops and restaurants and sea front but tucked away in trees. Amazing view which can be seen from bed and good size bbq on balcony which was spacious and very private. Can't think of anything that could be added to improve this accommodation, the best we stayed in during our NZ trip. Thank you Helen.

On the last leg of our 3 week both islands New Zealand experience - which was “awesome on steroids” - we spent 3 nights in the “suite” at Abri. Plenty of room and easy 5-10 minute walk to to restaurants and grocery. We self catered most of our meals including making use of the excellent multi cook surface grill on our balcony. Fantastic view of the Bay of Islands from both the balcony and main living area.The laundry was on the same level as the balcony and was like being at home! And parking was on the same level!!! Helen was very helpful, even coming to the door to let us know that our Salt Air pilot was having difficulty reaching us by phone. By the way, we would highly recommend Salt Air’s flight/van Cape Reinga tour.

We spent 3 nights at the Abri apartments. It was a great location, easy to walk into main shopping/eating places but far enough away from the main street to minimise traffic noise. Great ocean views from apartment. The apartment had everything we required for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Ray & Ann, NZ.

We are already planning our next trip back to Paihia and specifically being able to stay at Abri Apartments. The Suite was perfect; clean, bright, comfy and a wonderful view. Everything was easily accessible from this location and being able to return each night was just like coming home! Thank you.

We return time and time again to Abri apartments Helen and Peter are wonderful hosts and have the best position in Paihia. The apartments are very well appointed and spotlessly clean, this is where I want to give a big shout out to Mo , it is due to her excellence at maintaining the apartments under Helen’s initial guidance ( personally I think the housekeeper is the key to any accommodation and after traveling the world for over 20 years, I can definitely say Mo is the only person that can keep a place spotless and extremely hygienic. You could eat off the floors. Thanks Mo xx)
Hope to keep returning on an annual basis

Beautiful location in the trees meant cool sea air, views and birdsong. The apartment was private and well-appointed with tasteful bathroom and wonderful spa bath. Plenty of hot water and all mod cons with a short stroll to the waterfront and shops. Our host popped over to say Kia Ora and was generous in allowing us a little extra time to depart. A great holiday location.

A perfect start to our 5 week trip around New Zealand. The Treetops apartment was one of the most comfortable stays we had in NZ. The views from the balcony were awesome... and it was lovely to sit and have a drink at the end of the day overlooking the bay.
It was one of the cleanest and most well kept places we stayed in Extremely well equipped and good quality bedding. It has everything you need to self cater but also well located to walk and eat out. There is a large countdown supermarket 2 mins drive away so you can stock up on arrival.
There was lots to do in and around Paihia and we loved our visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Lovely spot for swimming in the sea about ten mins walk to Te Ti beach.
The perfect place for a couple to spend time in Paihia and the Bay of Islands.
We would highly recommend.
