They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If you look at the pictures of this fabulous b&b you will see why. The location is perfect, a few minutes from the charming waterfront town of Paihia. The views are panoramic and breathtaking from both your own private terrace and every room. The apartment is spacious, elegantly furnished, fully equipped and with beds that will guarantee the best night' sleep you!ve ever had. Breakfast is brought to you by the owners - and what a feast of home made and local delicacies. Superb. All of that is enough to warrant 5 stars- but I have yet to mention the wow factor that many others have commented upon. You couldn't find more welcoming, caring and gracious hosts than Gerry and Beat who go out of their way to make you feel special. I defy anyone to find anything as good as this.
We are repeat visitors, back for a three night stay at Moon Shadow.... I did not think we could have improved on the first visit, but the second visit was even better! We both had the most comfortable sleeps in those luxurious beds followed by a lavish and delicious continental breakfast. We could not have wished for more. What struck us this time was the attention to detail. Moon Shadow is in a class of its own. In all the luxury boutiques and B&B's we have stayed at in New Zealand, we haven't come across anything remotely like Moon Shadow. Also I forgot to mention last time how helpful the hosts were assisting us to book tours etc. They even managed to get us a 10% discount. We will definitely be back a third time. Thank you Gerry and Beat for another memorable visit to the Bay of Islands.
If you are looking for an unforgettable experience when staying in Pahia, this is it.
Outstanding service, stunning views from your own balcony, unsurpassed comfort in a spacious and spotless apartment surrounded by a beautiful garden.
An excellent location, peaceful but only few minutes walk to central Pahia.
Over many years of world wide travel we have stayed in numerous luxury B&B’s and boutique lodges and this ranks among one of the best.
The owner’s genuine warmth and hospitality topped it off to make this one of our most memorable experiences.
Moon Shadow is a fabulous place to stay, beautiful accommodation, stunning views,
spotless, and wonderful attention to detail. The hosts are friendly and worldly, and you feel well cared for without sacrificing privacy. The highest recommendation.
Absolutely stunning!! If you want breath taking views with luxurious accommodations this is the place. Close enough to town that we walked to dinner every night yet also very private in a lush garden setting. The owners were incredibly helpful in every way! A highlight of our trip to NZ.
