Wendy & Philip Hopkinson
Decks of Paihia is such a peaceful place. Away from the hustle and bustle of the village centre, we enjoy a beautiful quiet environment - waking up in the morning to the sound of the native birds. No traffic or village noise here.
Phil & Wendy enjoy sharing their home with guests from around the world. Travel is one of our passions, and we love sharing travel stories with our guests - hearing about the wonderful places they live and come from inspires us.
Paihia is a very pretty seaside resort town, and a great place to base yourself in Northland whilst you explore our beautiful region and surrounds. The cute township of Russell just a ferry ride away. Nothing nicer than a ferry ride to dinner!
