Looking for somewhere special where you can chillout, kick back, and experience the magic of the Bay of Islands?
Affectionately called “The Woo Hoo” cottage, my fully self-contained studio is for you.
The stunning view over the Bay and across to Russell takes your breathe away. Instantly, you feel a sense of peace and a positive vibration envelops you, welcoming you to your own magical world.
This is a special place for special people, come and experience the magic -stay more than DAY!


The view is outstanding, across the Bay to Russell. The seascape is ever changing as is the lighting. Watch yachts and cruisers come and go, cutting pathways through the blueness of the sea. It can be difficult to drag yourself away from such an amazing sight.
For those musically inclined, there is a guitar (sort of kiwi tradition really). Why not immerse all of your senses.
Take a walk in the garden, stop and smell the roses, find a meditation spot, or pick yourself some fresh herbs to make a cup of tea (mint is a favorite). Handpick some fruit or maybe pluck some fresh lettuce leaves, you never know what might be in season.
The studio is magical and you will find yourself totally absorbed in its peacefulness and ambiance. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a meal.
There is also a colouring book and pencils for those wanting to do some mind therapy.


There is onsite parking (on the right beside the wishing well), or your car will be quite safe on the roadside. Its about a 5 minute drive to Paihia. If you are walker, it takes about 30 - 40 minutes to walk into Paihia. If the tide is out, you can enjoy the stroll via the coastline.
Kerikeri is about a 15 minute drive away or head south for a 45 minute drive to Whangarei.
There is room to park a boat if you have one. If you are a fisher person and catch a fish or two, I have the perfect little smoke house and I can prepare a secret brine - smoked fish like you have never tasted before.


I work from home (I write) and I am usually on hand and happy to answer any questions, suggest things to do and see, or if I am not busy, I'm happy to chat, or share a wine or a beer. Depending on my time, I am also happy to cook and share an evening meal, or in some cases, treat you to the best home cooked roast you have ever had, (I'm also pretty good on vegetarian dishes too if that is your calling). Again, time depending I may be able to take you on a drive to some of my favorite spots, or have a picnic at the beach, or go fishing.
If you just want to be on your own, then so be it.

My place is a haven of peace, tranquility and positive vibrations. I intend to keep it that way and would expect my guests to have similar values.

Jan's home is absolutely beautiful. The garden and outdoor seating areas were wonderful places to relax. I stayed in the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) which was cozy, private, and had everything I needed for my stay. I definitely hope to come back again and would recommend this place to other travelers!

Very, very beautiful location with stunning views. My studio was clean and well-equipped. Jan was very helpful and down-to-earth.

I had to think a long time before writing this to make certain I didn't let the poor weather affect my opinion. Generally hosts in NZ provide a fresh liter of milk but there was none, when I did meet Jan she said she didn't like to do that because she's not sure if guests will want whole or low fat. She pointed out that the cupboard had several breakfast items and pointed out where the grocery was. I thought it odd that the food in the cupboard was in its original, open packaging and sure enough in the morning all of it was crawling with ants. So there went my breakfast. There was no bath towel, only one hand towel, until I contacted Jan and she brought one. I realize that we all like to economize but sheets should probably be replaced before they reach the stage of threadbareness of these. Overall not a very good Airbnb experience.

คำตอบจาก Jan:
Very disappointed in your review Frank. In over three years have never had anyone be so dissatisfied. As I say in my studio guide, ants can be an issue and paricularly in wet weather. I provide 'turkish towels' for my guests as they are quick drying and big - I noted you used it and as you discovered if you wanted a different towel, you only had to ask. I question your comment on the sheets. These sheets were relatively new and have only used about 8 times - they are certainly not threadbare. I am also a person who does not 'economise'. My aim is to always try to deliver a positive experience to my guests - I find it amusing that you are the first to complain so your comments say more about you than me. I was taken back when I entered the studio after you left - never have I had a guest leave it in just disaaray and obviously you made no effort to tidy up at all - even leaving a plate with food on the bench - which obviously quickly drew the attention of more ants. The majority of my guests remove their rubbish and bottles to the receptacles around by the carport (outlined in my studio guide), obviously not a priority for you. I find you have double standards - everything must be perfect for you, but you have little respect for others. Good luck on the rest of your Airbnb experiences.

Jan was an excellent host picking me up from the bus stop in town and always offering rides into Paihia. Her cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Her garden is taken care of with lots of love and adds to the ambience of the place. Sitting outside and taking in the view of the distant ocean is an experience that cannot be replicated. Wonderful place to stay!

Jan's place is a completely separate, immaculate, spacious, beautifully furnished bedroom/sitting room with full kitchen and full bath, located in the hills above Paihia, but just a few minutes drive from town. The views from the terrace are breathtaking and breezes from the sea always keep it very comfortable. A terrific host, Jan goes out of her way to make visitors feel at home and come to love Pahia as much as she does.

Free spirited woman with a love of nature and the sea. Enjoy meeting like minded people who relish life's journey and the learnings it provides along the way. My home is my temple. It is a place of peace, beauty and serenity. I am currently developing my garden and enjoying every minute of it. Love intelligent conversations, the sea - in it and on it, good musicians (especially jazz, blues, chill-out) . I work from home so usually available to introduce you to the Bay of Islands, show you around if you want and share a home cooked meal (I am an excellent cook).
