Paihia, Bay of Islands

In a beautiful, tucked-away spot on the North Island of New Zealand, is the Bay of Islands. The small townships of the Bay of Islands are steeped in colonial history, and set against a patchwork of gently rolling farmland and ancient forests of venerable kauri trees. The 144 islands are scattered in the clear Pacific waters, which are abundant with marine wildlife.

Paihia is the centre of all water-based activities in the Bay of Islands. The town is surrounded by three pretty bays and sheltered from the ocean by the Russell Peninsula.

We are located in a quiet location just off the main accommodation strip, at walking distance (150 metres) from the main Countdown Supermarket and within an easy 15 minute walk from Paihia’s main attractions.

We recommend to guests that –  either from their apartment or by leaving their campervan – they have a driving- and parking-free experience and enjoy the picturesque walk into town, taking in the stunning views and ambience of the Bay.
