“Paroa retreat is simply gorgeous. The architecture is amazing, the view stunning and the natural light the house gets in the day is beautiful. The house is modern and comes with everything you’ll need on a holiday vacation. The kitchen is super well-equipped. We felt at home instantly. The only thing… We wish we stayed longer.”

“Wow! What an amazing house with a fabulous sea view. Jeff was a great host – very good communication and really helpful.
This is a fantastically well equipped house with everything you could wish for and more. More like a luxury hotel than a rental.”

“This is a truly special property. Architecturally it’s a marvel, and world class in every way. Geographically, its nestled between pristine native NZ bush, and the clear blue waters of the Bay of Islands, and the nature is so soothing. We loved spending time on the deck at night looking at the stars, listening to native NZ birds like the Morepork, and the Kiwi. Yes, we heard Kiwis! We will definitely be back!”

“What a truly amazing place to stay! The views are incredible – even more spectacular than the pictures. The house itself has everything you could possibly want and the bath with a view is fab! Right next door to a vineyard and nice and close to Russell – couldn’t recommend highly enough, we’ll definitely be back. Thank you for a great stay.”

“In a class of its own compared to other offerings in the area. This was 3 nights during our round the world honeymoon (we are originally from Switzerland).
Words aren’t enough to describe the experience : the view is better than the pictures can tell, the house is literally new, full of technology and features and the architecture not only beautiful but also efficient. The hosts were perfect as well. Outstanding experience.”

“This is a fantastic property, it exceeded every expectation! The view from the house is a dream. The house is extremely well cared for and very well provisioned. Our only regret is not not staying longer, we hope to make a visit again.”

“Left the home fully rejuvenated. Quiet, peaceful with views beyond words, rain or shine. Well equipped kitchen, great shower, comfortable beds. Highly recommended!! Thanks for letting us share a piece of your heaven.”
