We been to several timeshare places in NZ and this is one of two best ones. Brilliant location, great staff and well presented apartment. In fact not a lot to comment on, otherwise this would begin to sound like a paid presentation.

I've been coming to Paihia for many years now, and there's always something new. Busby Manor phoned me while I was on the way there to check on exactly what bedding configuration we would prefer - now that's service! I had two overseas guests with me who'd never been to NZ before. They were rapt. The Busby office booked them...

Dear Kathy thanks for yur kind comments and really pleasing to have you return again. Yes Waitangi is a great time to be in the Bay of Islands unfortunately the media highlights the one or two adverse protests rather than all of the families enjoying what is a totally safe and relaxed environment

We are owners at Busby Manor but have never stayed there, so when an unexpected opportunity arose, we took it. A week mid-January made a great holiday - lovely weather, beautiful surroundings (loved being next to St Paul's Church) and enough to do, as well as having time to just relax. Staff are friendly and helpful, the premises clean and...

We have just come back from a great family holiday here. The pool was great for Mr 11, Mr 9 and Miss 7 - they lived in it! Plus as a parent - I could easily watch them from a sun lounger so I was also getting a break. Lots of great activities - we went fishing off Opua Wharf...
