The space
Location, location, location - across the road from the beach. Near Paihia Village.

Bayswater is a home that can accommodate up to 10 guests but we have priced it so two people or more can book it and get the advantage and space of a large home but not pay for what they would not use. All we do is lock off rooms that won't be used.

The Paihia waterfront location makes this holiday beach house one of the best in the bay. It’s only a 5 minute flat walk to Paihia township and wharf which is the tourism hub of the Bay of Islands.

The beach is across the road.

Our beach house accommodation has two levels with the top level comprising open plan kitchen, lounge, dining and bathroom all leading on to a huge deck with pleasant views down to the waterfront. This level also has the perfect bar where tall tales and true can be discussed after a full day in the bay.

Downstairs there are four double bedrooms, master with en-suite plus a lounge area with 2 king singles and another bathroom. Sleeps 4 couples in the bedrooms - making the total staying 10 very comfortably.

So a couple on their own will have the ensuited Master Bedroom downstairs and the entire first floor - heaps of space. With two couples, one will have the ensuited Master Bedroom and the second couple will have a separate bedroom their own bathroom plus the whole first floor. Please contact us if you need more information.

We can also accommodate infants in port-a-cots free - plus a highchair!

Perfect just one couple or for a large family.

There is off-street parking for three cars.

The big plus for this holiday home is that once ensconced you don’t have to drive anywhere – everything in Paihia is a few minutes level walk away!

In front of the house is one of Paihia’s best known restaurants – Just Fish and Chips - great location if you feel like dining out and don’t want to drive anywhere! www.justfishandchips.co.nz

Guest access
Entire house that sleeps up to 10 max

Other things to note
Bayswater is a family holiday rental home or for more "mature" groups. "Mature" as in behaviour!! We don't have any rules as such, but you just need to be mindful that we have neighbours. Please no noise on the outside deck area after 11pm.

Louise and Chester Rendell are long time residents of Paihia and originally purchased the property in 1983 when it was a Motel and Tea House. It took about six weeks for them to work out that there was no money in “scones, jam and cream”, and it wasn’t long before the ‘Courtyard Restaurant’ morphed out of the original Tea House. The Courtyard enjoyed a successful run and later became ‘Bistro 40’ in 1988 and then ‘Only Seafood’ was established above Bistro 40 in 1991. The businesses were subsequently sold and premises leased in 1995. Louise and Chester continued to live on the property. ‘Bayswater’ was launched in 2007. Over the last 12 years, Bayswater has become a popular place for people to stay in Paihia. Louise and Chester hope you will come and stay with them and enjoy what Paihia and the Bay of Islands have to offer. Fast forward to 2019, the emergence of JFC – Just Fish & Chips……Louise and Chester decided to re-open the restaurant, under the JFC brand, with the simple aim of providing just good, honest fish & chips. JFC only purchases fresh fish. Another point of difference is the delicious crunchy chips which are handmade at the restaurant. Produce is sourced in the Bay of Islands first, Northland and certainly New Zealand if at all possible. Click on the link to the JFC website. At JFC you can dine in or takeaway and it’s fully licensed. So here you have it – Bayswater holiday home on the same site as JFC – Just Fish & Chips – couldn’t be easier.
