Great Accomodations, Wonderful Hosts!
This Bed and Breakfast is better than a 5 star hotel. That may sound like an exaggeration to some, but it is not. In fact, this is the first bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. I travel quite frequently, and when I do, I usually stay in 4 and 5 star hotels such as the W in San Francisco, Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, the Wynn in Las Vegas, Sheraton at the Park in Sydney, the Langham in Auckland, etc. When it comes to comfort, personalized attention and service, cleanliness, and an overall amazing stay, those hotels have nothing over Baystay. When we first decided to book here, I must admit, I was a bit hesitant because I didn't think staying at someone's house could be so comfortable. However, I wanted to try something new and different, and I am so glad that I did. The two hosts were wonderful. Moments after we walked in, we were shown to our awesome Riverview room and offered wine. The room was spacious, clean, offered free internet access, and the bathroom had hotel style bath products. Also, each morning, we were served with an amazing (cooked to order) breakfast which was so good, it put me in a good mood for the rest of the day. The house is only a 3-5 minute drive from the center of this lovely little town, and our hosts drove us whenever we wanted to go out. They even arranged for a free cab ride back from one of the restaurants. I am so glad we did not ignore their restaurant recommendations because they were fabulous. As if that wasn't enough, our hosts even allowed us to use their washing machine for some last minute laundry before our trip to our next destination.
I would highly recommend Niek and Rob's bed and breakfast. If I were taking another trip to Paihia, I cannot imagine staying anywhere else.
