Overlooking the heart of Paihia, this sophisticated large family home is a luxurious escape for both large or small groups; perfect for family gatherings, reunions or as a corporate retreat.

Motu Tiro is Te Reo Māori for "island view", and the stunning views from the deck will truly take your breath away.

This is a great place for a relaxed holiday, conveniently close to amenities round Paihia yet very quiet and private. Totally enjoyed the stay.

This is a spacious, well appointed property with nice views, a beautiful deck area to enjoy them from and a very user friendly layout. The walk to town only takes 10 mins so we were fine with no rental car. Great stay, recommended house.
