Bay Of Islands Beach House Guest Reviews
Lars Heineck, Ja

The Beachhouse offers outstanding views, enough space for families and has a very friendly and helpful owner. We loved it and plan to come back soon

Allen Drew Hoffman, New Zealand

This is our favorite place to stay in New Zealand. It has all the comforts of home with a spectacular view overlooking Bay of Islands. Our stay began with a personal greeting and a welcome drink provided by the owner (Theo). Kayaks are available to use free of charge. The kitchen is well equipped with everything for your cooking needs. It has the perfect location because it is on the water, with only a short walk to the shops in Paihia.

Charles Sheppard, United Kingdom

Enjoyed an excellent stay at the beach house. Lovely and relaxed with stunning views over the BOI.

Michael Whellams, Australia

This not only a fabulous property but Theo and Sopha are the perfect hosts. The house is located just above a beautiful (and easily accessible) sandy beach and is about a .5k walk along the beach to town. We stayed in the middle level apartment which has a full kitchen, living room, one bath and two bedrooms (one with twins). Expansive deck which is on the north side so sun exposure would be great all year long. Free wireless. Highly recommended.

Cory Jackson, United States

A very nice, comfortable apartment with a fabulous patio and deck with great views. Nice and private with all amenities you could want. Very congenial and enthusiastic owner. Highly recommend!

Roy Innes, New Zealand

Beautifully located and quiet yet so close to everything. Tastefully furnished with everything that you need for a great getaway. The view is amazing!

Alan Denning, United Kingdom

Beautiful apartment with stunning views.

Andrew Feisst, New Zealand

Wonderul stay. Lovely apartment with many luxuries. Loved the outdoor shower and the relaxing spa bath. Views from the apartment are stunning. Location is private and quiet. Owners made us very welcome and did all they could to ensure our comfort and knowledge of activities in the area. Was an ideal choice for our honeymoon. Made an excellent base for our explorations of the Far North. Highly recommended and will hope to stay again in the near future!!

Dougal Wylie, New Zealand

What a fantasic place!! Beautiful views, peaceful, private and perfect for our honeymoon. Agree with all the other reviews that the outdoor shower was amazing! Thank you Theo.

Unknown ,

Excellent Place amazing views, with the added bonus of Spa bath and out door shower. Recommend to anyone wanting a romantic, private stay close to all the action in the Bay of Islands. thanks so much Theo and family.

leinana and Indy Purewal, New Zealand

The most amazing place to stay ever. My partner and I have been here twice now and we will be back again in november. Theo really does go the extra mile for anyone who stays. The view is amazing the house is amazing, we have stayed in the top and the middle part of the house both times and loved both! I truley believe that anyone that wants to stay in paihia stays here I would also like to thank your family that helped while you werent there they were great Thank you Theo Leilana Hallett

Darren and Kyllie Gorrie, New Zealand

From the moment we arrived and saw our view for the next 8 nights, we were sold - the photo on the website was exactly the same in reality. We had everything we could possibly need during our stay and our hosts were more than accommodating. We would love to come back again very soon!

amanda lea, Australia

it was excellent the hosts were very helpful. Only extra things I can think about would maybe a few extra softer pillows for people who like soft ones and extra blankets in cupboards as some people dont like to bother their hosts. Otherwise it was perfect.

Andy Hicks, United Kingdom

I challenge you to find a better property in NZ. Amazing views and a private beach. Tucked away on a hillside with privacy guaranteed is a wonderful place to stay. Warmly and enthusiastically recommended.

glenn langdale-hunt, New Zealand

Had a great stay, the penthouse was beautifully presented and the views were breath-taking. We loved the outside shower. We want to especially thank Theo for the help with the doctors for Glenn. Your hospitality was great, we will be back again. Thanks very much Lorna & Glenn Langdale-Hunt

Priscilla Pearcy, New Zealand

Would recommend this property as a lovely restful holiday apartment with all amenities you need. If wanting peace & quite it is certainly the place to stay and the views are spectacular. Home away from home.

Annie Lawrence, Philippines

The Penthouse apartment is wonderful - spacious and well appointed with any number of bathing options - double spa bath, indoor or outdoor shower and even a sauna in the room. All spotlessly clean. At any time except high tide you can walk on the beach/rocks to Paihia. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

Justin Gordon, New Zealand

it a awesome place to stay wouldnt change a thing the stay was perfact.very relaxn stay only thing is a tv in the bedroom haha or i should just learn how to read books

Lynne Wellington, New Zealand

We had a great time staying in Theo and Sophas beachouse for a week in early November 2011. Fantastic hosts and great place to stay with amazing views. Thanks Lynne & Graeme Wellington

Jaime Aguado, Spain

This was by far our best accomodation during our trip to NZ. Theo and Sophia were the most helpful hosts ever, and there were lots of amenities available. Thanks for making the last days of our honeymoon so perfect!!

Kevin Lindsay, GB

The Bay of Islands Beach House was our first stop on our tour of New Zealand and what a fantastic introduction to the North Island. The apartment has spectacular views across the bay with a superb wrap around balcony. The sauna and outside shower are two welcome features plus a great jacuzzi bath with unsurpassed views. All in all this apartment is top drawer and very good value. Thank you Theo for a most enjoyable stay.

John Geragthy, United States

When you are planning an overseas holiday you always fear you'll choose the wrong location. This turned out to be a gem of a property. The views are spectacular, the accommodation spacious and comfortable. Our hosts made us feel so welcome and my only regret is that I didn't stay longer. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday and I'd have no hesitation recommending Bay of Islands Beach house to others.

Cameron Tooley, New Zealand

We found the accomodation to be a very high standard with views to die for. Would defiantly recommend highly Five star

Patrick Haak, Germany

perfect stay for 7 nights with a little baby of one year. the penthouse with amazing view (esp. breakfast) and theo and his wife as perfect host - nothing was impossible ! spa bath and sauna were the best things for some "colder" nights ;-) we would come again ! T. - many thanks to you and your wife ! the germans

Allie Hemara-Wahanui, New Zealand

House is wonderfully priced and located with stunning views of Paihia making it difficult to leave. Chattels are of a good standard and all bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The cherry on the top are the hosts. Theo is accommodating, sociable and makes you feel at home. Would we stay here again......definately!!

Ronald Kerpershoek, Netherlands

Paradise exists! Superb view on the Bay of Islands in a quiet setting, in a house fully equiped with stuff to make life easy. Just a 10 minute stroll from Pahia. This was one of the highlights of our NZ trip.

Fayez Khalil, Australia

the place is in fantastic location and it is very soothing, we have enjoyed it very much , w would love to be back again, one point of advise and not criticism is the kitchen needs updating. thanks to both of you.

Pierre Chartrand, New Zealand

This place is marvelous and our hosts were so gracious and helpful. The view of the Bay from the balcony is spectacular. We spent a very relaxing week in a superb environment. We will definitely be back. Pierre and Nancy, Canada

Ramachandra Nimbargi, New Zealand

"Bay Of Islands Beach House" We arrived in Paihia hoping to have nice and calm stay. FIrst we meet Theo and Sopha who welcomed us in their property with cool welcome drink and nice'n cozy property to stay. Property had everything a holiday place should have.. nice views, clean & hygenic enviroment and driving skill test :) My wife and Kids want to visit here again soon... WHAT a LOVELY place to STAY...!!5 Stars...:)

Mike Shafford, New Zealand

Thanks Theo for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in a beautiful setting! The beach house is just off the beach with a fabulous view, fishing just off the beach and Theo and Sopha went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, a godsend when trying for a break with two little children. All the best, and we will see you soon! Mike and Yamile

Karen Henderson, New Zealand

We had a wonderful three nights staying in the penthouse apartment at the Beach House in August 2012. The position and view are magnificent and the apartment is spacious, beautifully presented and very well appointed. The "birds eye view" spa, the sauna and the outdoor shower just added the finishing touches to a wonderful holiday, with Theo the perfect host.

Kate Mc Loughlin, New Zealand

I stayed at the Beach House for 3 nights and it was absolutely wonderful! The views from the apartment are fantastic and the apartment has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.

Ian Sermon, Australia

The penthouse apartment offers the most stunning view of the bay from the balcony. It offers everything you need for a pleasant stay. Hosts Theo and Sopha go the extra mile to ensure you are looked after. Thoroughly recommend to all.

Diane Blokland, Netherlands

We stayed for 4 days at the Beach house of Theo and Sofa. The welcome was really warm, Theo offered a glass of non-alcoholic beverage for all of us. After that, Theo learned us how to ascent and to descent the steep road to the house. The kids (11, 8, and 5) really loved the place, especially kayaks and fishing (snapper!). The house is well equipped, clean and cosy. We wanted to stay longer but we had to travel to the next place on the North Island.

Ian Skinner, New Zealand

What a lovely place to stay,in all respects. Very friendly and accomodating hosts and lovely clean accomodation. The views are spectacular and sitting on the deck was superb. Would thoroughly recommend this place for a wonderful and restful holiday.

Kevin Kempin, New Zealand

The property, welcome and overall stay was of the highest standard. I was 'blown away' by the view and general presentation of the place. The only 'problem' is that the accommodation is so nice you don't want to leave!!

Robert Renner, Germany

One of the best places for a relaxed vacation with a million dollar view!

kim nicol, New Zealand

fabulous spot if you are holidaying with dogs.

David Jones, United Kingdom

This is one of the best places that we have ever stayed at. Accommodation was great and the views are stunning. We stayed in the Penthouse apartment which had every possible amenity. Lovely beach below with complimentary use of kayaks and dinghy. David and Jane. UK

Jill and Doug Irwin, New Zealand

Lovely property, well equipped with all amenities and magnificent views.Very private and quiet. Would stay there again.

Heather Griffiths, New Zealand

Lovely new studio with good facilities and great views!

Tony Lewis, New Zealand

This accommodation had everything from the warm welcome from the owner Theo, to a well equipped beautiful home and boats (inc Kayaks) for free use. Swimming on the secluded beach or rowing to the island is a must. But just lazing about on the veranda or walking along the beach into small town (at low tide) is enough Lots of eating and drinking places or you can take the ferry to one of the first European settlements of Russell. I can't praise this accommodation more highly.

Pierre and Nancy Chartrand, Canada

This must be paradise. The apartment is so nice and cosy, you feel right at home. And the view......it's breathtaking. Theo and Sopha are so nice and helpful. Do we simply adore the place? Well we already booked for next year! Pierre and Nancy

Lynne Assefpour-Dezfuly, Australia

This is an excellent beach holiday property and location. The views are breathtaking, uninterrupted and panoramic. The place is very homely, spacious, has all amenities that we needed and the hosts are great. It is the most relaxing beach holiday that we have had, will recommend it to anyone and we will be back again and again!

Louise Gough, Australia

This is an amazing property which has absolutely spectacular views. You could spend your whole holiday sitting on the balcony and soaking up the views. Everything in the house is new and it was perfect as we were two couples so we had our own privacy at opposite ends of the house. Thanks to Theo for running around after us when we arrived early. This is a magical place to stay.

Roger Pijpers, Netherlands

We stayed here is January 2013 and had a lovely time! We slept every evening with the curtains open so we could enjoy the morning from the moment the sun came up. It's really a relaxing place and you can take one of the kajak if you like to be on the water or go for fishing because all the gear is available to you. But the stunning views and the location it self is the main reason why we want to comeback if we would spend a vacation in New Zealand again!

Ross Murphy, New Zealand

Peaceful & relaxing with amazing views & wonderful hosts. Waste time watching the waves roll on to the beach with a drink in your hand. Excellent clean facilities. You can't help but relax during your stay. "Ten out of ten". Thanks Theo, Sopha & Hero.

Mark Priscott, New Zealand

Great spot, fantastic view and extremely welcoming people. Theo was very friendly and helpful. We liked it so much we got engaged!

Lindsay Phillips, New Zealand

Beautiful house with amazing views. Only a 5min walk to town along Sullivans Beach. Great location and we didn't mind the steep driveway either. Wonderful and friendly hosts!

Cris and Jan Wissink, Australia

My husband and I were really thrilled with our first impressions of our Bay of Islands Beach house, and with the personal welcome from our host Theo. The view and the roominess were the greatest assets of the apartment, and the incredible spacious balcony a real bonus. Such a lovely 'home away from home' enhanced our visit to the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Samantha McDonald, New Zealand

Me and my husband have just stayed at this property for Christmas. The property was immaculately clean, well equipped for all our needs and has the most amazing views! Theo could not have been more helpful and hospitable. We would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone! Thanks Theo!

Helen Stackhouse, Australia

Very comfortable and quiet beach house with stunning views and beautiful location.

Mary Shannon, Australia

Beautiful new studio apartment with stunning views. Very clean with everything we needed. BBQ fantastic and laundry facilities superb. Deck was amazing!

Johan Booyens, New Zealand

What a great place to stay! This was our 2nd visit and we'll be back again for sure. Just loved the sunny deck overlooking the bay, direct access to a quiet beach and the use of the canoes. Theo and Sopha are wonderfully friendly and helpful too. A perfect base for exploring Northland.

Sue Jamieson, Australia

We stayed 3 nights at the Sunrise Apartment - absolutely stunning! Beautiful apartment and amazing views. Theo was a great host and very helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Sue

Tim Rayner, Australia

Amazing is the word that comes to mind. Our family of five relaxed in this very beautiful, luxurious, clean home (yes, it felt like a home, not a rental) for four days. The views were stunning, resembling a tourism brochure. As corny as it sounds...if you're after a slice of paradise...go no further! The kids also loved the New Zealand version of Monopoly (yes, we're Aussies) and the ice machine on the fridge! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in this part of New Zealand.

margaret coutts, Australia

Wonderfully relaxing venue with fabulous views. Access directly to the beach.

Fred Smith, Niger

The rating of 4 that I have given is quite harsh because what my partner and I experienced was near perfect!! you get more than value for money at the beachhouse. the view was immaculate, room was amazing, clean modern classy and stylish all in one. the drive way could be seen as a set back but I thought it added character and adventure.I couldn't quite figure out the hot water so if you decide to stay maybe the (very friendly) host could throw a few tips. looking forward to the next stay!

Maria Tulbrick, Australia

Our 6 night stay at Sunrises Apartment was superb in every way. The view was breathtaking, the apartment was beautifully furnished and the amenities were generous. Sunrises is maintained perfectly and it was spotless. It is luxurious and hard to leave. The Manager, Theo, does a great job and we rented a car from him - fantastic. We can't recommend this apartment highly enough. We even had Killer Whales swim by our balcony - what a bonus!

kerry Mccasker, Australia

My husband and I recently stayed in one of the Studio apartments during the Christmas period for 3 nights. The amenities were beautifully modern and spotlessly clean and the view was divine. Would highly recommend to other people looking for wonderful outlook, close to town and lovely facilities.

Alvaro Velez, Un

Excellent view and room

Heather Grant, New Zealand

Had a lovely week long stay at the Beachview apartment, Theo and Sopha were fantastic hosts. Both friendly and helpful; sharing information about what to see and do. The place was comfortable and well resourced. The view was incredible and having a track to the private beach just a great added bonus. Theo's kayaks were a hit too! Another favourite part was the hosts dog Hero, always on the look out for a pat on the driveway. Thanks for an amazing stay, will definitely be back.

Laura Barbarics, New Zealand

thank you Theo for providing a really wonderful place to stay in such a beautiful location. your hospitality made this a really relaxing trip. We will certainly be staying with you again next time we are in the BOI

Howard Jones, New Zealand

Stayed at the Bay Of Island Beachhouse for 4 days, it was fantastic...had visitors from Canada and what a way to introduce them to NZ..... It was very beautiful and comfortable, and the hosts were wonderful people....would recommend it to anyone...

Shari Scheiblauer, United States

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in January, 2015. We were greeted by Theo with a welcoming drink out on the deck overlooking the beautiful bay. We stayed on the middle level and it had everything we needed. Theo was very helpful in suggesting a cruise the next day and had restaurant recommendations. He also has two kayaks for use free of charge Would love to stay again if we didn't have such a long flight from the US

Robby Andronikos, Australia

Amazing house. Great experience. Views superb, walking distance to town and ferrys. Very warm and cosy on a cold night.

John Arkins, Australia

We stayed in the Bay Of Islands Beach House Beachview apartment for 3 nights in mid April. This apartment has everything you need for a relaxing, comfortable stay with a superb view of the nearby beach and bay. Your host Theo makes sure that everything is perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend this unit to my friends and family.

Matt Conley, New Zealand

An absolutely amazing apartment with breath-taking views, we both thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will definitely be returning. Theo was very friendly and accomodating, he made us feel right at home. Thanks very much!

kathryn notter, United Kingdom

Fantastic, we did not want to leave everything was perfect

Thierry Delannoy, France

Très bel endroit avec une vue magnifique et un accès à une plage calme l'équipement est complet et la décoration de bon goût

John Wilson, New Zealand

Beach view apartment could not have been better for us to enjoy three nights in BOI. From the moment we arrived to leaving things you needed to make the stay easy were there. Our hosts made sure we felt as though this was our holiday home! As for location, views unsurpassed and we Parked the car on arrival and walked or boated everywhere thereafter. Great place, book without hesitation!

Sharon Hearn, United Kingdom

Absolutely fabulous from start to finish! Theo the host accommodated beyond expectations as it was my husbands 50th birthday trip to NZ from the UK the accommodation was first class and very light and airy with a fantastic balcony with beautiful views of the bay The host also accommodated in purchasing tickets to the hole in the rock, birthday cake and champagne at our requests Thank you for a wonderful stay

Bryan Frost, Australia

We had a lovely stay in this very comfortable unit, it had such a homely, relaxed feel and the views were stunning

Tom Gowan, United Kingdom

We had a wonderful few days at The Beach House. Roomy, spotless, and everything we could ask for. Particularly enjoyed sitting on balcony looking over the bay. Great chat with the owners, who were very welcoming. Would seek to return to same accommodation on returning to Bay of Islands.

Tim Barnard, Australia

Views, location, facilities all fabulous for a summer holiday. Theo is a great host.

Howard Goodman, United States

The apartment was excellent. Everything we needed & wow, was the view stunning. Great people who owned it. Had a wonderful time. Definately recommend.

Steven Davies, Australia

Friendly and helpful host, Free Wi-Fi, Incredible views and location, comfortable bed, large room with great facilities such as a kitchenette and BBQ. It's a B&B but our room was away from the main house so offered the privacy and independence of an apartment which was nice. Thanks Theo, hope to stay again

Debra Harvey, United States

Just a wonderful place to stay our final 3 days in NZ. Picturesque setting with a view that changed hourly with the changing sunlight. Easy walk to the beach and into town over the rocks at low tide. Free use of 3 kayaks and we were able to cook dinner on the grill on the deck which was perfect. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen and the bath has a washer and dryer. Theo was so helpful. Th

Stuart Hall, United Kingdom

This is an immaculately clean and very comfortable property enjoying stunning views over the Bay of Islands. What would, however, have been appreciated by us would have been a normal, full- size cooker (presently two-burner hob and microwave), a bath (for which there is space)and a washing machine within the unit (we understand that washing can be done by arrangement).

PIERRE HULCELLE, France

2 nights in a 2 bedrooms apartment .. we were really exhausted when we arrived. 7 hours drive, 8 pm but Theo was immediately there to help us ... Beautiful view from the balcony, everything you need will be find in the apartment, very large bedroom. Great stay , thank you

Donna Snape, New Zealand

A great place to stay stunning views and such friendly owners and property manager they went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. Perfect weather also

Robyn Mullinder, Australia

A wonderful peaceful holiday location. Every imaginable need catered for and a lovely helpful, informative host. Stunning views and beachfront walk to the township. Would definitely go back again.

Patsy Johnston, New Zealand

We stayed for 3 nights in March 16 with another couple. We found the house to be very comfortable, well catered and lovely view over looking the sea. Theo & Sophia were very helpful, nothing was a bother. As we were on bikes he came and collected our luggage from up the top, and even lent us a vehicle to go into town. You can walk down the steps to the beach and carry on into town. The only thing is the access, it is steep, but Theo will take you up & down if this is a problem. Enjoyable stay

Pavel Gloukhovtsev, United States

I stayed there March 14-17 2016 at a suite with a balcony/patio. Very clean, very well maintained; fantastic views and sunrises over the bay. I highly recommend this. Thank you Theo and Sophi! Pavel Gloukhovtsev Pasadena, CA USA

Jolanda Gerritsen, Netherlands

The best stay ever.We were thoroughly in awe of the beautiful view and magnificent house.We would like to come back and stay forever! We toally were able to unwind. Everything was absolutely perfect. The hosts were so very helpful and very kind. Jolanda Gerritsen and 5 others.

Ken Wuttke, Australia

Absolutely beautiful property located in Paihia. The place was immaculate and the views were just breathtaking. It was a joy waking up every morning. Our room had everything we needed and more. Washer and dryer just outside our room was a big plus. You easily walk down to the beach from the property and after a five minute walk along the beach you are in town. Our hosts Theo and Sopha were great - gave us great tips on activities and dining. Vielen Dank Theo!

Ali Beck, United Kingdom

A fantastic place to stay, it was even better than anticipated from the website. Apartment clean and airy very comfortable with everything you need to make a good holiday. The location is perfect, secluded and peaceful with amazing views across the bay. An easy walk down to the beach. The use of kayaks made this holiday even more perfect. Theo, the owner couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend this properly and would hope to return one day.

Martin Mason, New Zealand

Superb accommodation, fantastic views, really cannot fault in any way, we have stayed in many different places and this was by far the best we have ever been to, would recommend.

Marcel Buergin, Switzerland

Fantastic view. Very friendly owners. Great all view suite. Would like to come back soon again

Holly McCausland, Australia

We had a short (too short!) 3-night stay in Seashells studio. The view from the balcony was beautiful and the room was too. Quality design and finishing, good amenities, close enough to Paihia, Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Island tours, pretty Russell just a short ferry ride across the bay. Wish we'd booked a longer stay. Helpful host. Magic stay.

Andrew Gibson, United Kingdom

Lovely location and facilities. Theo can't do enough to help you with your stay. Excellent recommendations.really lovely part of the world. Andrew Gibson

Lorna Dudley, United Kingdom

Beautiful accommodation and stunning location.

Kim Allen, Australia

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Bay of Islands Beach House in February 2017. The property has stunning views of the water and surrounding islands. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and well appointed. Shops, restaurants and tourist activities are a short walk or car ride away.

Ewen Phyland, Australia

The Bay Of Islands Beach House, was a wonderful holiday apartment, and would tell anyone to stay in this apartment. The views were so good of the Bay of Islands, we did not want to go out at nite. It was an upmarked apartment, with excellent beds and everything you would need. And Theo was a very good host, he looked after us very well. You do need a car to stay at this apartment, as it is on a side of a hill. Jill

Ashok Lele, Australia

Stayed at the all view suite. Fantastic location, views! Theo was very helpful! Will go again anytime. However, the following items need to be improved. - kitchen: for a self contained unit, the facilities were not upto the mark. Should have had a gas / electric hob and a few pots and pans and spoons etc - the ceiling fan is as good as not there! Needs replacement..better still, a heat pump would be good - the tv screen was very small and was too much away from the bed.also no channel choice.

David Sawyer, Australia

We recently stayed for 2 nights and the apartment was fantastic with an amazing view from the balcony and our bed straightbout over the bay. It had everything we needed and was modern and well presented. We arrived quite late the first night and everything had been done for us and even had a bottle of bubbles in the fridge waiting for us. We'll definitely be back and would happily recommend this as a place to stay for anyone visiting the bay

Ewen Phyland, Australia

Chris Hartshorn, New Zealand

Great place to base ourselves as we experienced the Bay of Islands and points north of there. Theo was super- helpful in hooking us up with the best experiences and places and incredibly flexible to our plans. Could not recommend more highly.

Bob Leone, United States

We had the incredible good fortune of staying in your magnificent 2 bedroom apartment. Beautifully furnished, and everything very comfortable. Kitchen nicely supplied. Fireplace with wood and kindling really appreciated on those two cold nights! Will never forget the most amazing Bay views from master bedroom, kitchen, dining area and living room and the very large terrace. Thank you Theo and Sopha.

Ian Tilley, New Zealand

The best!!!

Franz and Marianne Schleiss, Switzerland

Wonderful accommodation, very quiet, beautiful terrace with gorgeos view, comfortable bed, cosy living with fireplace, well equipped kitchen, steep and narrow driveway to the house

Wendy Kjeldgaard, United States

Best holiday of my life! Theo & Sopha were so kind and helpful. Couldn't have been more perfect!

Nicole Depuhl, Germany

We stayed 3 nights in the studio of the beach house. We never had such a view from the bed and terrace like at this place. The barbecue we could use and then enjoying our dinner with the coast view was absolutely perfect. At this place we even could have stayed longer. We will recommend this place to our friends and of course would book here again. Thank you very much Theo for everything and take care. Best regards Nicole and Kurt

Michael Robinson, Australia

We stayed for the second time at Sunrise house one of the rental properties under the name of Bay of Islands. The house was superb offering luxurious accommodation with amazing views over Sullivan beach and coast .we stayed for 9 nights this time . Guests are greeted by Theo who is always available to help with any problems and provided us with beach towels and even a beach chair. We cannot recommend this property more highly it is just excellent .

Philip Coleman, United Kingdom

We were two couples staying in the ground floor two bedroom apartment. There was a lovely outdoor dining area with BBQ, with long covered patio that could be accessed via sliding patio doors from the 3 main rooms. The view of the bay from here was just wonderful. The accommodation was spacious and clean, with a large shower room, including washing machine. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend it, just wished we had stayed longer as lots to do and see in the area.

Gayle Gardiner, Australia

The apartment we stayed in was comfortable simplistic and very good quality from bed linen, soaps, shampoos to the jamie oliver cutlery, had every thing that you required for a relaxing holiday. It had views from every room, the balcony was fabulous from early morning to sunset. It was a wonderful way to relax for a week, with cafes and restaurants all within walking distance along the beach.

Meredith Angwin, Australia

We stayed here for 4 nights End January 2018. Theo's warm welcome was a lovely way to start our delightful stay at eh Bay of Islands Beachhouse (Allview Apartment). Well appointed with all that is needed for a very comfortable stay and with the added touches like access to beach towels, water craft etc. The view over the Bay towards Russell is amazing. Highly recommended for a short or a long stay.

Sally Bradford, United Kingdom

We stayed in 'Seashells' accommodation, and loved it! The view is amazing, the property was spotless, well equipped and comfortable. It was so pleasant to walk along the beach to go into Paihia. Theo was very helpful. A property to be recommended highly.

Warren Alder, Australia

The attention to detail throughout the apartment was exceptional, we only needed to fill the fridge with food and drink, everything else was present. The views from the balcony are exceptional and the cleanliness and presentation were first rate. The apartment is a leisurely walk to a private beach and restaurants and bars are a little further away but also walkable. Both host Theo and the owners Avril & Ben were very friendly and accommodating. However the parking and access are not ideal.

Christine Oughton, United Kingdom

Stunning location, in quiet residential area. Apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. Located a short walk from the beach made it an ideal base when visiting Paihia. Theo was on site to meet us and gave us a warm welcome. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Andrea Luft, Germany

It was a wonderful stay at the Bay of Island Beachhouse. The Apartment war very well equipped and has a beautiful viel over the sea. The was very helpful and gave us a lot of tips. He also bookes some tours for us to get the best rate. Thank you. We won´t go home and will definitely come back.

Therese and Martin Finn, Australia

We stayed in the lovely Island View Apartment for 4 nights. The view is stunning and the apartment is very well furnished with everything you need for comfortable stay, including use of a washer and dryer. You can walk the short walk into Paihia at low tide around the rocks but it is not recommended to walk this way at night. Theo was a great help with suggestions and bookings

Helen Hall, New Zealand

It was all we expected and more. We stayed 3 nights at the All View Suite with our 6 month old baby. It was clean, tidy, and all we needed including a weber bbq for cooking. It had most amazing views and 2min walk down stairs to a great beach! It topped off our holiday in the BOI, We will definitely be back!

Gary Cooper, United Kingdom

A lovely property, with unbeatable views and great facilities. Theo is a superb host who goes out of his way to help. We stayed in The Ferns, which unfortunately has the owners apartment above it as we were driven mad by his wife thumping the floor above continually with her 9000 steps per day exercise regime. Despite being asked to stop by Theo and myself, she persisted and made no apology whatsoever. If you go to stay there, suggest you make sure she is elsewhere. This ruined an otherwise

Jean Goodbrand, New Zealand

We brought my husbands brother from Australia. Its always hard to know what a place will be like but this was the best decision ever. We were blessed with stunning weather but that wouldnt have mattered as even if the weather was bad, watching the activity in the bay would have been enough!! The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and Theo was very welcoming. We used the kayaks to explore, slept like logs and went home very refreshed. A very special spot, we will definitely be back!
