Our location

Paihia is an ideal location to visit and stay if you wish to experience the Bay of Islands and the far north. It’s the main base for tours, cruises and activities for our region. We are happy to give you advice on things to do and make bookings. You will also enjoy a range of restaurants close by to suit all budgets and preferences.

Driving Directions

If you arrive in Paihia from the South / Auckland you will arrive on the Paihia waterfront with the water on your right. Head into the centre and you will see the wharf and Maritime Building on the right hand side. Our street Bayview Road, is the next turn on the left after the wharf. On Bayview Road head straight up the hill and round a couple of bends to No 39. Up the driveway we are on the right with plenty of parking in the driveway.

If you arrive in Paihia from the North or West or from the airport in Kerikeri you arrive at the waterfront just after passing the Countdown supermarket on your left. At the waterfront turn right and keep the water on your left. Just after a sharp bend and before the main wharf you turn right into Bayview Road.

On Bayview Road head straight up the hill and round a couple of bends to No 39. Up the driveway we are on the right with plenty of parking in the driveway.

We suggest you allow 3.5 hours drive from central Auckland and about 4 hours from the airport coming North up Highway One. If you come via the West Coast – Waipoua Kauri Forest you will need about 4.5 hours driving time.

“Super Stay, Loved it!”

Had a brilliant stay. Lovely spacious and comfy room and what a view. Great having a lovely breakfast made
and the hosts are just lovely – great advice about where to go and when. Helped us to maximise what we
could see and do on our stay. You just don’t get that level of personal knowledge from an anonymous chain.
Would stay here again for sure.

“Top Quality in a Beautiful Location”

The hospitality of the host couple is impressive. They are very committed and helpful towards
their guests. Beautiful orderly facility which is kept in good condition. They deserve maximum
recognition. The place is slightly elevated above the landscape with a beautiful view of the bay.
And then they serve a fantastic breakfast buffet with home-baked bread. It can’t get any better.

“Amazing Views, Hosts & House, Absolute Bliss!”

Amazing and quality service. Brita and her husband were absolutely lovely to us and accommodating.
The rooms were all absolutely stunning. No matter what room you have, you will have a beautiful
view of the bay. THE breakfast was amazing!! Home made fresh bread and ingredients, eggs cooked
to our liking, fresh fruit, meats and cheeses. You guys are so great and we cant wait to come back 💙💙
Your home is stunning!!

“Brilliant Stay at a Highly Regarded B&B”

Happy to recommend Allegra House. A definite highlight of my stay at Allegra due to Brita & Heinz’s
hospitality. Smiles and warm welcome. Large comfortable room with a superb view over the water.
Fantastic home cooked breakfast. Enjoyed our varied morning conversations!

“A Wonderful Stay in a Beautiful Environment”

We had a wonderful stay at Brita and Heinz’ gorgeous property! Our room was spotless and had everything
we needed for an enjoyable stay. Our hosts were fantastic and had excellent knowledge of the local area and
provided us with great recommendations. Heinz daily baked bread was yummy, a fabulous treat every morning
along with great breakfast. Highly recommend staying here and we would love to come back!
