Stayed September 2020

Great location - over the road from the beach, close to Paihia shops and wharf etc. Great place for a multi-generation family, lots of space outside.

Stayed August 2020

Fantastic, well-equipped house and outstanding location. Bed warmers on every bed were welcomed by all over a winter weekend. Beach towels came in very handy. Excellent communications with the property manager. However, there were noisy people passing by outside or nearby every night, very late, even off season. I played my “white noise” app and went back to sleep.

This is the best holiday house i have ever stayed, not only the house itself, but also the friendly staff from bachcare. Thank you. will definitely come back again. Highly recommend.

Stayed October 2019

We had a fantastic stay at this perfectly appointed and well positioned house. Town is just a 5min stroll away, the beach is right across the road and the big lawn at the front was perfect for the kids to run and kick a ball around on. Debbie, our holiday manager was so friendly, helpful and welcoming. We will definitely be back - a perfect place to stay if you’re visiting the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Very nicely situated property. Good that we could have our dogs here, housed in our vehicle.

The house is great. The beach is just across the street. Everything you need is in the house and the wharf is a 5 min walk if you want to go on a boat trip or take the ferry to Russell. Thanks very much for a great stay.

Beautiful air conditioned accommodation with large airy rooms, great location and everything needed for that luxury-tinged home away from home experience.
