        Overpriced”

        There are many cabins and we stayed in one st the front on a hill overlooking Paihia. We felt this one was probably the best one as some lacked privacy particularly the one near where cars parked. Internet supply was very poor particularly late evening and night. The water pressure for shower was very poor. We have stayed in other places that cost less and were fabulous.

        Bay Cabinz is a terrific place to stay in Paihia, Bay of Islands. Easily walk to the storefront and shops- 2 minutes. Great refurbished units. Excellent cooking in cabin and a bbq for guests to use. Very private from the rest of the cabins. Great little verandah to sit on. Beautiful gardens and bird life. Very friendly owners.
