Great to hear you had a great time and enjoyed your holiday. Thank you for your positive comments on staff
Fabulous Staff, Amazing Location. Intimate and very relaxing. So close to all the shops and excursions, yet so wonderfully removed from all the shopping madness.
We have already booked our next out-of-city escape.

We hired a car which I found was the best way to get around. We hired the car from Omega car rental and they picked us up from the airport. They also explained the way to get there as there is a toll road (you can take a different route to avoid the toll but it's longer). They also explained where to pay for the toll which was very handy. The road can be very windy in some sections but is such a beautiful drive. Having a car was very handy in Paihia as there were places to visit close by that required a car. The car we rented also had a sticker reminding you of which side of the road to be on which I thought was a great idea for international travelers.
