“Quality Apartment, Comfortable and Convenient”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

A lovely apartment on a hill with great views of part of the Bay. It is a 10 minute walk into Paihia town centre but a steepish walk on the return. The unit itself, under the owners house, is very comfortable, modern décor and with all necessary facilities and more. A most enjoyable stay with the bonus of helpful ideas for outings and eating from the owners.

“Cosy”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were made extremely welcome by Janet and Jim. The apartment being very clean, comfortable and well appointed. As the name suggests the property is set high on the hill affording views front and back. You can walk into Paihia but for the less fit you will need a car.
What I liked was the kitchen supplied with basic necessities which got you started on arrival. Jim and Janet were forthcoming with choices of local and not so local restaurants and where to detour from the main highways to maximise on the beautiful scenery this area is renowned for

Exactly as advertised.The views of the bay are beautiful. Contemporary, high end furnishings and fixtures, and spotlessly clean. Great location for Bay of Islands and points further.Jim and Janet are super friendly and have lots of good advice on things to do and see. loved sitting out on the patio for morning coffee and evening wine.

“Amazing apartment - amazing hosts!”

Janet and Jim are terrific hosts and the apartment is exactly as shown. Excellent kitchen with everything you could ever need. They are very familiar with the area and gave me great trips on things I should see. Traveling alone, it was nice to know they were nearby - but never intrusive. They are a lovely couple and the apartment is truly amazing.
