Beautiful little bach
My partner and I absolutely loved our time in this little bach. It had so much character and had everything that you could possibly want or need. Located in the most perfect location. The batch was clean, comfortable and homely with so much on hand to keep you and the family entertained. We can't wait to book again, we definitely recommend

5/5 Excellent

Paihia paddling adventure
Great place to stay. Very tidy, clean and comfortable.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect little package
Great value for money, funky cute little place, short drive to Paihia, and great access to car ferry and beaches. Would definitely stay again!

4/5 Good

A great spot for a break
We stayed here for a few days in April. Was a great experience, the bach was very clean & inviting. Only a couple minutes stroll to the water and a very short drive to Paihia town. The only let down was the back deck area - no privacy and old cars on the lawn at the back (assuming these belong to the neighbors) so we didn't use this area. Other than that no complaints.
