    beautiful setting, peaceful location, overlooking the gourgeous Bay, practically in town but at the same time away from it. Supernice and kindest host, very very clean, all well equipped!

    "A real paradise!"

    A wonderful place all of your own in beautiful surroundings, immaculately clean, greatly equipped, with very friendly and helpful hosts! To town center, wharf and beach only a few minutes walk. We stayed in no 8 with sea view and were totally happy in our holiday-home. Should we ever come back to NZ, that's the place we'll chose again. Katharina (54) and Ishaq (13)

    "A very pleasant stay"

    Our cabin was clean and comfortable and had a terrific view. It was just a short walk to the shops, restaurants and the wharf, where the boat trips depart from. The owners are delightful and were very helpful regarding local activities and tours, which they were able to book for us directly.

    "When can we stay again?"

    A great motel set out as separate clean and tidy cabins with a great view of the Bay. Handy to the shops and tourist activities but secluded for privacy.

    When can we stay there again? Soon we hope!

    if the rating thing does not show 5 = excellent below then that is what we will give this motel

    "Great place to saty"

    Great place, congratulations to mgmt for providing a very clean, well organised perfect place to stay -worth every dollar. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet place to rest and recover -too many steps for those with dicky knees unless you can stay in ground floor chelet. 200m back from sea front means you're away from the hussle / bussle -elevated cabins give great views.

    Thankyou

    "relaxation plus"

    What a lovely place to spend 3 nights. It was quiet, clean and tidy and having a balcony meant we had a nice place to relax. Very central to the lovely quaint town and restaurants. The stairs to our cabin certainly gave us our exercise. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.

    "Clean, Comfortable, Close to center and ... with a view !"

    great self contained little A-frame units with friendly and helpful hosts. we really enjoyed our time here. it's a climb up so if you're traveling on foot, take this into consideration. pricing was on the upper end of what we were paying but the units are fresh and surroundings were quiet so i'd say it was worth it.

    Well equipped and friendly. Great view from our cabin although it was hard work carrying all our luggage up and down. So if you don't want to have to do that suggest that you ask for one lower down.

    Thanks Jeremy for taking the time to make a recommendation. The chalet you were in on the top terrace does have the most stairs & you would certainly have had a good workout during your stay! There is always a price to pay for peace & privacy & we are glad to hear you enjoyed the outlook. Happy travels, regards Belinda & Pete

    "Excellent stay at Bay Cabinz"

    We had a wonderful stay at Bay Cabinz. The cabins were very clean and tidy. All the crockery and utensils were provided which meant a much more relaxed stay and the location was perfect. A short walk to town and the harbour, with larger supermarkets being only a 2 minute drive. The communal BBQ area was perfect for a lazy evening dinner and the views from the cabins at the top were beautiful. The hosts are very warm and welcoming and we really could not have wanted a better place for self-accommodation. Very highly recommended. Will return to Bay Cabinz when we next visit New Zealand.

Fortunately the next guests were also cat lovers because he wasn't going anywhere!!

    "Lovely property with lovely people"

    Love Bay Cabinz! My husband and I stayed there for a week at the tail end of our 3-week holiday in NZ. The units are private, sunny, airy, and very clean, with a well equipped kitchen and wrap-around decks. Also the most comfortable beds we experienced during our entire visit to NZ! Belinda and Pete are just gems and are so helpful. Ask Belinda to arrange for some sailing in on the yacht, Gungha, which is helmed by a friend of hers. The cabins are located very close to the center of Paihia (just about a five-minute walk) and are situated on a wooded, shady hillside with private off-street parking and away from most traffic noise. The units are accessed by several sets of stairs, so be prepared to haul your luggage up them, but this was not really an issue for us. And make sure you have a bit of milk on hand for Smooch the orange tabby! She will come by your cabin for a visit and walk right in if you have the door open. :O) You might also get to know the locals who live next to Bay Cabinz and who might invite you over for BBQ and a beer! Highly recommended property and hope to return one of these days.

    "A Perfect Cabin"

    Delightful private cabin with lovely outlook from the verandah. Location was excellent - one block away from the main street . A peaceful setting with birdsong in the morning, happy children's chatter from the school opposite, and quiet evenings. The extra touches (a private pot of herbs on each verandah; pegs on the washing line and bbq tools alongside the clean bbq made our stay there very enjoyable - the helpful and friendly owners also made us very welcome. The 20 stairs were no problem to us - they kept us in shape after consuming too much beautiful NZ produce!

    "A peaceful retreat in amongst the action at Paihia"

    We spent 3 days at Bay Cabinz and loved the chalet, the location (a few streets back from the main road in Paihia), the hosts, and the views.

    The chalets are clean and well appointed, and some (like ours) have a sea view. The beautiful bird life in the surrounding flora and fauna was a bonus.

    A great base from which to explore the Bay of Islands.

    I would, and have already, thoroughly recommended this accomodation to others.

    My husband and I went to Paihia to dive the Rainbow Warrior and found this place over the internet. Hard to tell from the pictures but Bay Cabinz is a very quaint place with a great view overlooking Paihia, walking distance to the central area and the owners are really nice. We only stayed here one night because our plans to sail the next day fell thru but will definitely stay here the next time we are back in Paihia.

    Great accommodation with full kitchen and private outside deck for dining. Quick walk to wharf and Paihia centre. Fantastic management who are eager to assist with all questions and to make the most of your stay. The cabins are placed on a steep slope so there may be a bit of a walk.

    They have an extensive range of DVD's to borrow for no charge and a very friendly cat called Smoochy who lounges around the pathways and loves attention. Would stay again!
