We have been in the Bay Cabinz Motel in Dezember 2013. It was really great!!! We had no reservation in Paihia and every hotel had no vacancy. So we were very happy to get that cabin. It is a nice place and we were lucky to get the last one upstairs with a beautiful view. We had three wonderful days...

We needed very last minute accomodation after a disaster booking, and were lucky to find Bay Cabinz Motel. They answered the phone late evening and were very helpful and welcoming hosts. The rooms are beautiful, much nicer than a 'cabin', lovely and spacious, the ideal place to sit on the balcony and say ahhh. They are delightfully set into the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 5 nights in the Bay Cabinz Motel in Paihia. The individual cabins are delightful, each one having a deck so it is possible to eat outside. They are fully equipped and comfortable with laundry facilities onsite and a barbecue area in the complex. The owners were very welcoming and a wealth of information, they...

From the time we were warmly welcomed at reception to our first steps into the cabin, we felt right at home! Slept like a log every night! The cabins are airy with an illusion of space from the high ceilings. They are practical and have everything you need in the kitchenette to help reduce your holiday expenses. Clean, fresh yet...

Stayed at Bay Cabinz for two nights as part of our tour of NZ North Island in January. Its a great base for exploring Paihai and the Bay of Islands. On arrival the owner mentioned the Bay of Islands boat trips and got us booked on one which we can definitely recommend doing. The cabins are only a 5 minute...

We had a great time in Paihia and Bay Cabins Motel was perfect. Cabins nestled in the bush. Each cabin has a balcony, so you can eat outside and listen to the birds. The owners were very helpful knowledgeable. Just a short walk to local shops and restaurants, but better than staying on the waterfront. Stayed 3 nights end January...

We had such a nice time in Bay Cabins Motel. The Cabins are great, nested in the bush, with birds everywhere. Each cabin has a balcony, so you can have breakfast and rest outside. The owners are very helpful and nice and the ginger cat very friendly. Just short 5 minute walk to town but so much better than the...

My husband and I spent five nights here and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who was looking for a great location. It's just out of the centre of town and provides some lovely views and just a very short stroll into town. The accommodation is a little dated inside but in all honesty that's not really an issue...

Booking holiday accommodation online always includes a little doubt but the Bay Cabinz was an excellent choice. Bay Cabinz is smack in the middle of Paihia, about a block back from the waterfront which allowed for great views with peace and quiet. The hosts were very helpful with their local knowledge and booking trips for us. The strange offer of...

To be honest I've been to more scenic places and stayed in more lavish accoms but this spot was magic! We had a romantic getaway in a little kitchenette overlooking the ocean and it was all we could have asked of a couples getaway. Ocean views from the bed and no noise/neighbours to bother us. Bel & Pete even lent...
