We had a wonderful 2 week holiday here. The owners are wonderful and friendly, who provided lots of goodies for us, including a bottle of wine on arrival. It is very quiet and we enjoyed listening to the Tui and Morepork. The unit is well appointed and very clean. It is close to a safe swimming beach and we would highly recommend this place to stay.

Had a wonderful stay here in February 2015 for 8 nights to explore the Bay of Islands. Very well set up apartment and which has everything you need. Fantastic warm weather is enjoyed in the private courtyard area, with high use of BBQ facilities! Close to town but just far enough away to relax and enjoy the many local attractions. Trish & Colin are obliging hosts and most helpful with holiday ideas as well. Thank you so much for a great time in the beautiful Bay of Islands!

We had a fabulous time in the Bay of Islands whilst staying in Kowhai Apartment. We had everything we needed to have a very comfortable stay and especially enjoyed afternoons in the courtyard warmed by the sun. There was just a short coastal walk to Paihia and a longer one to Opua - beautiful walks with bird song and bush. We would definitely like to return. Thank you Colin, Trish and Val.

We stayed 6 weeks in Kowhai apartment ( 19 febr - 3 april 2011) and we had a very good time. We enjoyed every day and especially the cosy backyardgarden where we had breakfast and dinner in the sun nearly every day. Sometimes grilling our own fish. The first two weeks we had a car but it was no problem to get around in the area without. 15 min walk to Paihia and many wonderful walks in the forest and along the coast. Colin and Trish were fantastic hosts. Thanks for a wonderful time. Tor and Ann-Gerd from Norway

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac away from the centre of Paihia Kowhai Apartment was a wonderful place to have a relaxing family holiday. Just a 20 minute stroll or 3 minute drive to Paihia it was an excellent base from which to explore and enjoy the many experiences that the bay of Islands has to offer. The apartment has everything you could possibly need and Colin and Trish are wonderful hosts who were always around to help if needed and nothing was too much trouble for them, even our 2 yr old being up at 5am! Thank you again for a fantastic week and we hope to see you again later in the year. All the best, Paul, Tash and Charlie

Very comfortable apartment- fully equipped and loved the sun-drenched courtyard. For fellow walkers the local tracks are spectacular. I recommend the bush track from Te Haumi to Opua, walking the beach to Waitangi and along the coastal track surrounding the Treaty Grounds, parking the car at Waitangi and walking to Haruru Falls and driving to the Kerikeri Stone Store and walking to Rainbow Falls. Ideal tracks for Nordic poles

What a treasure away from the hustle and bustle of Paihia, but ever so close really. A delightful apartment that has those little extras that make your stay away absolutely pleasurable and relaxing. Trish and Colin are fabulous hosts (you wouldn't even know they lived above you - thanks for my birthday wine, which was an unexpected and thoughtful gift). My husband, daughter and grandson and I had a lovely time and with the inclement weather staying in didn't matter as the apartment was very comfortable. With computer access, DVD's and heaps of reading material added to the relaxing time we had. The reserve area alongside this property with the rope swing was also enjoyed by our grandson. We wouldn't hesitate in checking availability of this little gem when we come back to the Bay of Islands next September.
