What did we like? We loved everything about Moon Shadow! We loved the spacious two bedroom unit that was impeccable clean, totally equipped, and beautifully decorated. The patio offered a perfect place to have a glass of wine, enjoy an amazing view of the harbor, and have a wonderful place to end a busy day and begin our evening. We fell in love with the view of the harbor complete with sailboats coming and going. Most of all we appreciated our wonderful hosts, Beat and Gerry, who made us feel part of their home. They were there when we needed advice and needed to be pointed in the right direction. They were so very kind and helpful yet not intrusive. The breakfasts they served were just right! The restaurant they recommended gave us the best table and a delicious meal, the best of our trip. Moon Shadow is simply perfect in all respects! How lucky we were to have our time there.

Gerry and Beat are the most amazing hosts, they made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The views are unbelievable from the accomodation and are complimented by the amazing service provided by the hosts. We would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends and look forward to staying here again in the near future.

This is what you look for - but hardly ever find!

Moon Shadow is really a unique luxury B&B, situated on a hill side overlooking the Bay of Islands area at Paihia - a spectacular view! (see pic) We spend four days there and enjoyed it so much. The hosts Gerry and Beat are so nice, friendly, helpful and caring about your wellbeing, while you're there. The breakfast is high class (see pic) and they even arranged specials meeting the food intolerance issue, we have in the family. Gerrys home baked croissants are just wonderful. An absolute amazing place. The Bay of Islands area is a pearl. Ask Gerry and Beat for advice and they will guide you to some very good experiences. We had dinner at Zane Greys and Charlott's, both at the pier. And we tried out The Duke in Russell. All three very good, but our favourite was The Glasshouse in Paihia, where they serve the dishes as 'shared food' - really recommendable. We also visited Omata Vineyard and Kitchen - that's a 'must do'. Enjoy the surroundings, order one of their thin crust pizza's together with a glass of Pinot Gris and you will understand why this is must do (see pic) Best advise: go there while you have the chance
