Paihia villa description

Crows Nest is a luxury retreat nestled on a cliff’s edge overlooking the beautiful Bay of Islands and sitting absolute waterfront. Come enjoy the million dollar panoramic view as the sailboats dance leisurely below. Perched above the international yacht haven of Opua, Crows Nest is just 5klm distance of the beautiful beaches of Paihia.
Crows Nest contains two villas known as “Bridge Deck” and “Sails”. Each villa is fully self-contained with a full kitchen, large dining/living room, two bedrooms and full laundry facilities. Each villa sleeps 5 and offers a private sun deck with gas barbeque. All prices are on a per villa basis.
Each architecturally designed villa was crafted in 1996 along jaunty, nautical themes to a stunning effect. Walk through the glass doors that open to the expansive balcony and relax to the best views in the bay of islands.


Water and Land based Activities : For the holiday of a life time, the Bay of Islands offers a kaleidoscope of experiences for visitors.
Take a trip on one of the boat cruises and view the many islands that make up our beautiful area and gave it its name.
Spend a day big game fishing, go scuba diving, or snorkel with the fishes. Maybe even swim with the dolphins, or just laze on one of the beautiful beaches with the occasional swim to cool off.
For the energetic, there is also sailing and wind surfing, or sea kayaking and parasailing.
Land based activities such as golfing, tramping, and orienteering are all available.
Jump from a plane, go horse riding, or maybe even possum shooting in the evening.
There are many enjoyable scenic walks in the area and Puketi Forest (near Kerikeri) offers a short walk to view the giant kauri trees.
Just 20 minutes north of Paihia discover the citrus growing area of Kerikeri with its many local specialty craft and food outlets. Enjoy wine tasting at one of the local vineyards.

History: The Bay of Islands is also a rich source of historical landmarks and is known as the 'Birthplace of our Nation'
The Waitangi Treaty House and Grounds, next door to bustling Paihia, is a monument to the importance of our country’s Treaty.
The Russell Museum and Pompallier House, also the Stone Store and Kemp House at Kerikeri, bring to life the time of the early European settlers – excellent places for visitors to better understand what makes us Kiwi's tick.

                              Opua is a tranquil, seaside community in the heart of the Bay of Islands. With a semi tropical climate Opua is said to be the best place to live in the world. Comprising of 144 islands, the Bay of Islands is a sailor's dream. Crows Nest is poised just that you have unobstructed views up, across and down the Opua inlet. All bedrooms offer sweeping panoramic views as you wake up to the reflection off the water. You couldn't ask for a more tranquil location to enjoy your vacation.

                              We are located just off highway 1 before entering the tourist center of Paihia.

                              Please contact Marj for directions.

                              Golf: Waitangi Golf Course - famous for its excellant faciliities at moderate fees, plus wonderful scenic views - is located approx 7 klm from Crows Nest Villas.

                              Kauri Cliffs - a world famous course & a challenge for the most experienced golfers - is only approx 25-30 drive from the villas.

                              Other golf courses within easy driving distance include Kerikeri and Kaikohe - both approx 20 minutes drive north.
