Just be mindful this is just a few KMs from Paihia cafes and wharf etc, but trust me that is a good thing. Having stayed in the BOI everywhere from Russell to Opua to Paihia, its always the same, the central areas have too much noise and attract a lot of oppurtunists knowing most are on holiday.

We were surprised how expensive NZ hotels are and we like 5 star service but want to pay 3 star prices. We received a 5 star welcome and it has to be the cleanest room we stayed in the past 2 weeks. Bonus is they are all 2BR units at 1 BR price. Great value for money!

This is a small, family run complex. The owners are lovely - so friendly and helpful. The cottages are comfortable with a good lounge and large balcony. The bedrooms are small but perfectly formed! It is a short drive to the town centre and shopping/fuel. Lovely and quiet location!

Our hosts Jim & Sylvia welcomed us, our cottage was clean, roomy & well equipped with a large veranda, and only 5 min drive from Paihia. Would certainly recommend staying here for a peaceful relaxing holiday - but plenty to do an see in the Bay of Islands if you wish.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Sunseeker Cottages. Quiet, great views, nice large sunny deck. Cottage was fully equipped and was the grounds were very well maintained. Lovely setting and close to Paihia (by car). Only negative was that we had to take the car everywhere due to it's semi-remote location.
