Nick and Rob were both very welcoming, and they offered a wealth of good ideas about restaurants and activities. The inn is lovely, and breakfast was great. We enjoyed the other guests, and the cat Casey!

Wonderful hosts who had tons of advice re local trips and restaurants. Beautiful setting, just what we needed after long flights and drive from UK and Auckland. Would definately recommend to friends and we hope to come again. Appreciated Rob's help with printing photos of brand new grand daughter, born in England whilst we were at Baystay!

Small boutique style B&B in quiet location 5 minutes drive from Paihia with view of Haruro river valley below. Hosts Rob and Nick very helpful in offering advice and recommendations on what to see/do in the area and to arrange bookings. Amost enjoyable and comfortable stay

Only problem is finding the place with or without a GPS. We arrived at night in the rain; signage is very small. Great host and view of the river valley. Parking little tight. Nice to be out of the crowded town area.

i cannot believe the rating for this place, it was awful. As soon as my friend and I entered the place all we could smell was cat, and the place was just scruffy. All I can say is the photos must have been taken years ago. Needless to say we left to find somewhere else. Would defo not recommend.

Dear Meg Martin, We are very disappointed reading your review, especially as you didn't even stay with us and experienced our hospitality! Seems like you are alone in your opinion, as you can read from the rest of our reviews. In saying that, one terrible review will make guests read our 160+ excellent or very good reviews even more closely!...

Has to be the best place we have EVER stayed. The host Rob was so helpful and assisted us in whatever we needed. The home itself is stunning and breathtaking, as well as relaxing. Meeting other couples was also a highlight and Baystay provided us with the opportunity of creating new found friendships. It's everything it's cranked up to be....

We stayed here for 4 nights in the Ti Tree room and were not disappointed. Although the actual bedroom was a little tight for our luggage the bed was very comfortable, the aircon was really efficient and the bathroom spacious. What made the stay so memorable was the hospitality and the environment in the house. This really is a home...

We stayed here after driving up from Auckland and found our hosts very welcoming and with wonderful ideas on what to do in town. Free wifi was very helpful and the rooms were immaculately clean. There was also an amazing view from the back balcony which we sat and ate breakfast prepared by our hosts in front of.

We had three nights here in October and it was lovely! The room was big and clean, as was our ensuite. Cooked breakfast every morning was delicious, with a good variety on offer. My husband even braved the elements and had a spa! Also, advice as to where to eat and sightsee was very good, as were the long conversations...
