This is the ideal place to stay in Paihia. Perched on a hill above Sullivans Beach with a short walk down steps through the garden directly onto the beach ,the location of Allview Lodge cant be beaten. The views from our Pohuhukawa Suite were breath-taking. How absolutely pleasant it was to sit inside or out on the verandah and just gaze out at the view of the beach, islands, boats, people kayaking and the occasional cruise ship.
Inside the fittings and decor was to a high standard, clean and comfortable. It was good to have the kitchenette with a microwave and frypan as well as a good size fridge. Free wifi is available too.
There are kayaks available to use and on calm days it is a lovely and safe area to kayak in. You can walk to Paihia in low tide however there are some rocks to scramble over, and you can also walk around the small headland in the other direction to another beach. It is a very short drive into Paihia where you can easily buy food and organise...
