Unwind in Kowhai Apartment set in a quiet cul-de-sac in Te Haumi Bay, next to a reserve of mature native trees.
You will be 2 minutes drive from central Paihia and all that "the bay" has to offer or you may decide to take a leisurely 20 minute walk around the water's edge. Paihia is one of NZ"s premiere tourist destinations and provides visitors with a huge number of activities to do all year round. Many on, under and above the water, one of the most popular getting you up-close to the resident dolphins.
Award-winning Waitangi Treaty Grounds, the birthplace of our nation, are within walking distance of Paihia and provide excellent insight into Maori history and culture and the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.
Historic, quaint Russell, once the capital of NZ and mission settlement, is just a 10 minute ferry ride across the bay. Don't leave out the Kerikeri Basin, another mission settlement with its famous Stone Store, 20 minutes by car
Stunning Hokianga across on the west coast and Cape Reinga, of special spiritaul significance to Maori, at the very tip of the North Island are both great day trips worth making time for.

The apartment was beautifully set-up and the outdoor area was amazing. Thank you so much for a lovely few days.
Even though the location is not central, it worked well for us as we had a car so could get around really easily.
Lovely apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is small, but perfectly formed. Gorgeous courtyard at the rear is the standout. A little bit away from the hustle and bustle of holiday season Paihia (a plus for us) and great value (especially considering what friends paid for a hotel in town at the same time). I do agree with a previous reviewer that the shower could do with some work, but this is a minor grumble. Very much enjoyed our time here.
We were very happy with our stay at Kowhai apartment. It had everything we needed and was clean and well presented. Our favourite part was the courtyard.
Location is very close to town. Great little apartment!
