Positive Reviews

Conveniently located

Being located near the centre of Paihia means visitors can easily head to local bars and restaurants, while returning to their chalets at the end of the night. Travellers say much of the city is walkable from this position, making it very convenient.

Friendly hosts

The property's hosts are incredibly friendly, assisting visitors with everything needed throughout their stays. Guests say the owners often provide recommendations on places to go and things to see, helping travellers to make the most of their time in Paihia.

Nice outdoor area

Each chalet has a balcony with outdoor furniture and guests love spending time there eating a meal or having a drink. Many balconies offer views of the ocean as well, adding further value for visitors.

Negative Reviews

Lots of stairs

Steep sets of stairs lead to the chalets at the back of the property and visitors with mobility issues find them difficult to climb.

No air conditioning

Since the units don't have air conditioning, travellers find them too hot. While there is a ceiling fan in each chalet, it doesn't do enough to cool things down during the hottest summer months.

Poor Wi-Fi

Guests complain about the quality of the Wi-Fi, saying it is slow during peak hours and difficult to connect to in many chalets.
