For the sophisticated traveller .... a charming retreat

Perched on a hill with sweeping views across Waitangi, Russell and the Bay of Islands. Surrounded by mature Totara trees, wake up to the sunrise from your spacious well-appointed apartment with en-suite, conservatory, private sundeck, and kitchen facilities.

Enjoy the vista of ocean liners and sailing boats - or simply be mesmerized by the stunning view. Within minutes "keep fit steps" will lead you to the village centre, restaurants, wharf, beaches, bush and coastal tracks. Only a ten minute ferry ride to historic Russell across the Bay. Paihia, in the Bay of Islands, is the centre for a wide range of activities which make it New Zealand's number one scenic resort.
