...to escape the busyness of „central“ Paihia. We just loved this very special B&B, right outside the main village. Not to worry: it takes literally only five minutes to walk to the main warf. Yet, you get some solitude, a great view of the bay (with some trees in between) an great hosts. So, if you are not looking for the ordinary, this is the place to go...

We booked the Craicor Boutique Apartment Tree House before arrival inNew Zealand which was just as well as it appears to be fully booked for the next few months. We were greeted by Garth, the owner, on arrival. He had thoughtfully left a few provisions to help us on our way. The Tree House studio apartment was a very large room comprising, living, sleeping , dining and kitchen areas with a separate en suite shower room. The apartment was clean and tidy. A few table or standard lamps would have improved the ambience. The only issue we had with the apartment was a lack of water hot water pressure. We would advise that wheelchair access to the Tree House is not possible. Access from the parking space is via steep external brick or timber steps which could prove difficult for guests with mobility issues. We were very satisfied with our stay and would not hesitate to recommend it.

The hot water is being investigated. It is a low pressure system however there is usually a little adjustment. People with a mobility issue would be better off booking the Garden Suite as it is accessed more easily. We appreciate constructive comments about our accommodation.

Our room overlooked a majestic and loved garden. From our bed we could see the Bay and the morning sunrise. Room was spacious yet cosy and warm.Kitchen had wonderful amenities. Walking distance to shops .only regret is we were only able to spend 2 nights.

My in laws from England recently visited. I chose to book the Garden Suite. Absolutely fantastic. They loved it. Booking was extremely easy and Garth and Ann were very helpful and friendly. The views, the facilities, and Garth and Ann were all "top notch".

We stayed in the private sea view apartment. (Yes it has steps but only a few.)

Lovely location which is handy to Paihia and all the activities that your budget can stretch too.

The apartment was clean and versatile. Utensils, Cooking and cleaning appliances were all of high quality making it easy to prep a plater and tidy up after. Fridge was big enough for a few bottles of wine and snacks etc... there was even some glad wrap and foil to help with the preservation of your plater for later.

What I am getting at is that some of the important details are looked after - the small helpful things that make life a little easier. Bug spray - must have when you are surrounded by water and in the bush. We had brought our own but it was there if you hadn't. Its the little things that make for a better stay.

Garth - the host was informative and friendly. He assisted from afar which let us get on with relaxing.

It rained during our stay so it was very nice to sit in our apartment, watch the weather whilst sipping a wine. (Oh how wonderfully terrible.)

Wifi was good - connection and bandwidth. TV is small but

All in all, clean, modern and comfortable. Nice spot for couples to escape for a little breather or longer.
