Location

Paihia, Northland, New Zealand

We are situated at the end of a cul de sac and next to a reserve so it is very quiet and relaxing. Access to the property is easy and flat. Just a 2 minute walk to the beach, which is tidal but just as beautiful when it is out as it is in. Head right and grab a morning coffee and sit on the beach. Turn left and you can walk around the beach to Beachcomber Bay, Sullivans Beach then onto Paihia for a drink and meal or pop onto the ferry to Russell, once dubbed the "Hell Hole of the Pacific"
Or you can have a workout and go over the hill to Paihia. Great footpath access over to Paihia where you will find our information centre Isite this will take approximately 15 20 minutes giving you some stunning views along the way.
