Decks of Paihia is perched on the hillside in a secluded sunny north facing position above the village of Paihia, with views over the native bush and the immediate bay.
Welcoming and comfortable
Wendy and Phil designed and built Decks of Paihia, and opened its doors in 2005. Decks is a lovely, light and airy B&B with just 3 guest rooms. Each room has a superking sized bed and opens onto the deck and pool area. Guests are invited to make use of the cosy but spacious lounge.
Each room contains tea/coffee making facilities, TV/DVD for your personal use and modern ensuite bathroom. The bathrooms are equipped with heated mirrors, heated towel rails and hair dryers.
The breakfast menu selection is cooked to order and served in the light and airy upstairs dining room. Adjacent to the guest rooms is a spacious comfortable lounge area with a good supply of DVD movies, books and magazines. Each room opens onto a sun drenched deck overlooking the swimming pool.
We recommend relaxing on the secluded decks and enjoying the solitude and beautiful bird life in the adjacent native bush.
In New Zealand’s far north you will find something that you may not have expected.

To the west, running alongside the Tasman Sea, is the Kauri Coast whose lush forests are home to the oldest and mightiest trees in New Zealand. The largest kauri is Tane Mahuta, Lord of the Forest, whose diameter is 4.4m. Te Matua Ngahere, Father of the Forest, is New Zealand’s oldest tree and is estimated to be more than 2,000 years old.
The far north is wild, dramatic and rich in folklore and mythology. Cape Reinga is at the very tip of the North Island and is known to the Maori as Te Rerenga Wairua, the leaping-place of the spirits. It is to here that the spirits of the dead travel on their journey to the homeland, Hawaiki
