We loved our stay at Ann & Reid's comfortable, clean, well equipped, cosy home. A special place. How can I live without that amazing view. Thank you for our lovely four night break away. A great space to be. Take care - Andrea, Mike, Clara & Kelsey

My wife and stayed at Ann and Reid’s home for 7 days at the end of our 3 month tour of New Zealand. This was the perfect location to relax and process the sites, places and people we saw and met during our time in New Zealand. Reid and Ann are engaging an a wealth of knowledge about the area.The home is in the back and above a motel they own and has the most magnificent view of the bay. You can enjoy and evening refreshment while looking across the water to the first European settlement in New Zealand, Russell. The home is clean and equipped with a complete kitchen and nice BBQ. Beds are comfortable. Stores, shops, restaurants and tour operators are within walking distance. Even though close to the village it’s quiet in the evening. A short drive away are interesting sites to visit.

We had a wonderful stay at Ann and Reid's place. The view from the deck is amazing and the location is excellent for all that Paihia has to offer. Would highly recommend!

Fabulous location with a beautiful view of Paihia. Bright, light and clean three bed apartment which suited our family with young adults perfectly. Lovely balcony to watch the moon rise over the bay each night. 5 minute walk to town but far enough away to be quiet.

Ann and Reid were welcoming hosts that were available throughout our stay, as they also run the motel just below their Airbnb. The view from the penthouse was beautiful. We celebrated New Year's from the balcony to the tune of spectacular fireworks set off from a barge in the bay.The location is a perfect starting point to explore the Bay of Islands.

We enjoy connecting with people from all corners of the globe, travelling, keeping busy, relaxing, reading. Our family has flown the nest so the residence is ideal for others to enjoy - we own the Austria Motel next door where we stay over peak periods. We are always available to help you during your stay and are also happy to advise on activities and everything to do with the Bay of Islands and the Far North.
