Paihia, Bay of Islands

Getting here: Once in Paihia, turn onto Williams Road (this is the centre of town - adjacent to the wharf with the Post Office on the corner). Continue along Williams Road past the Paihia Primary School on your left. Turn right at the T-intersection into Joyces Road. Absolute Bliss is on the left-hand side of the road, number 24 (opposite Tanoa Hotel Paihia). The drive has a steep incline, so you get magnificent sea views and plenty of parking and/or own garage.
