Overview

Photos and Description of this Paihia holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful home will make your stay in the Bay of Islands something to remember.

As you walk through the front entrance, you are immediately struck by the high wooden ceilings and expansive views of the bay.

In this house you often find you have stopped what you were doing and are again staring out at the beautiful bay and across to Russell. You are close enough to the waterfront to see what is going on at the beach, yet far enough back to feel secluded.

The main room is an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge. The high counter provides a social hub between the kitchen and lounge, while the dining area is slightly removed. The native timber ceilings and floors and the open space create a comfortable, "at ease" feeling.

The wood burner is located centrally so that in winter, although it feels spacious the whole house is cosy and warm, while in summer the many doors can be opened to let in the cool sea breeze to escape the midday heat.

There is a separate TV room through double doors with a fold out couch that can become a fourth bedroom if you have a larger group. It can be closed away to become a quiet retreat or opened up to be an annex off the main room.

The master suite is upstairs. It has a queen sized bed and a walk through wardrobe leading to an en-suite.

Downstairs are two more bedrooms and a second bathroom.

It really is a short walk down to the waterfront restaurants, cafes and bars. The wharf and town centre are also only a 10 minute stroll along the beach past several historic sites, including the Stone Church, St Paul's.

Special conditions:

Please note that the property is up a steep drive. There is parking for 2 cars however limited turning around space.

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Fantastic house, which was perfect for our family stay and had everything we needed; so close to the beach and amenities, and an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful Bay of Islands - we all had a wonderful time! The driveway is steep, but the kids thought that was great fun!

Spacious, very comfortable house in great location with walking proximity to many local destinations. Great beds. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you! The property is up a very steep drive, which makes for a good hike when walking back from town, but also provides great views :-)
