Welcome to our Neighbourhood

We invite you to visit the Bay of Islands and stay at North Base, conveniently located in a quiet residential part of Paihia just a five-minute walk to town and the beach.

North Base offers two accommodation options. On the top level North Base House has four bedrooms – three double and one bunk x 4, sleeping up to ten guests and each with its own bathroom. At ground level is North Base Apartment: one double bedroom plus pull-out couch in the lounge area, and a detached cabin with double bed and its own toilet & washbasin.

Whether you have a large family group seeking fun time together or a couple looking for a quiet Bay of Islands getaway, you’ll be pleased you based yourself at our place.

Oliver, February 2022

“Great location, 2 min walk to beach, shops, coffee etc. There was 7 of us in town for a wedding, this place easily accommodated us all and had everything we needed to get ready. Check in and check out was a breeze, and there was plenty of parking – will stay again if in the area. Really enjoyed our stay thanks, Robert. An awesome location and the weather was amazing.”
