Craicor Boutique Accommodation in Paihia

At Craicor we offer guests the choice of two deluxe self contained apartments, the Tree House and Garden Suite. You will find us in the beautiful Bay of Islands town of Paihia.


The Garden Suite and Tree House are self-contained modern apartments in a garden setting with trees, native birds and sea views.

Tree House

Experience the feeling of being within the native trees.

Garden Suite

Sit back and enjoy the view

Depending on the time of year, guests can enjoy watching the native birds, tuis, rosellas and wood pigeons who frequent the peaceful garden. Both Anne and Garth are avid gardeners combining a colourful cottage theme with the large native trees and ferns that dominate the area.

We enjoyed a beautiful stay in this cosy retreat in the bush off King street near the centre of Paihia. The apartment is of a modern style, with tea and coffee, fresh milk etc provided and has a veranda looking out over the water where the adrenaline fuelled activities the Bay of Islands offers are happening. The gardens are exceptional with birds tweeting in the trees. It's an easy walk in to town (note though, it is up a steep hill driveway if you have an injury or something). It is quiet and private from the bustling main area (though note, the family live upstairs in their home so you are not in complete privacy if that's what you're going for). It seems like a safe area. Cafes are close. Lovely host. Overall pleasant stay.
We started our tour of the north with 4 nights in the Garden Suite & boy was that a great decision. Garth looked after us with some quality kiwi hospitality & was more than happy to give recommendations about what to see & do. The apartment is huge & has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Paihia. The garden setting is serene & as others have commented its great hearing the birds chirping away in the beautiful garden. We also liked the fact that you could walk down to a couple of bars within 3 minutes & the ferry to Russell along with a bunch of other restaurants was only 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Would highly recommend!!
