We stayed here towards the end of our holiday in NZ and it was good to have such a lovely apartment with so much room. The location is close to restaurants, bars and the wonderful Movenpick ice cream shop-we came here every evening for our dessert. It is a 30 minute walk along the seafront to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.

Only wish I could have stayed longer. Both the room and the hosts were top class. Room was very clean, great bed, great facilities. Hosts could not do more to help and directed us to a fabulous meal. Cannot recommend enough. We will return and make more time for it.

After a month in New Zealand our plan was to treat ourselves to a relaxing wind down in the Bay of Islands. Pioneer apartments fitted the bill exactly. Well appointed with all of the equipment you need, a pool and spa both well maintained and all just a couple of minutes from the pier in Paihia.
Mark and Viv who live on site and manage the apartments could not have been more helpful including jumping in the car to get me back to the pier when I left the sun cream behind. They are knowledgeable and came up with some excellent suggestions for trips and eateries.
A great end to a fantastic holiday. Could not recommend more highly.

My husband and a local friend joined me in a very pleasant stay at these very centrally located apartments - we had a two bedroom two bathroom one - well equipped kitchen most of which we did not use as many restaurants in the doorstep!

The view from the front apartments is unbeatable. Beautiful sea views with people swimming, parasailing and enjoying the summer. The rooms were clean and fresh. The service was great too and they did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. One minor issue is the noisy plumbing from upstairs apartments. I would definitely return though. Great spot.
