 “Summed up in a word……. superb!”

Reviewed today for a stay in August 2017

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If you look at the pictures of this fabulous b&b you will see why. The location is perfect, a few minutes from the charming waterfront town of Paihia. The views are panoramic and breathtaking from both your own private terrace and every room. The apartment is spacious, elegantly furnished, fully equipped and with beds that will guarantee the best night’ sleep you’ve ever had. Breakfast is brought to you by the owners – and what a feast of home made and local delicacies. Superb. All of that is enough to warrant 5 stars- but I have yet to mention the wow factor that many others have commented upon. You couldn’t find more welcoming, caring and gracious hosts than Gerry and Beat who go out of their way to make you feel special. I defy anyone to find anything as good as this.

Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend?   Yes.

 “Moon Shadow – Stand out accommodation in the Bay of Islands”

Reviewed 4 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We are repeat visitors, back for a three night stay at Moon Shadow…. I did not think we could have improved on the first visit, but the second visit was even better! We both had the most comfortable sleeps in those luxurious beds followed by a lavish and delicious continental breakfast. We could not have wished for more. What struck us this time was the attention to detail. Moon Shadow is in a class of its own. In all the luxury boutiques and B&B’s we have stayed at in New Zealand, we haven’t come across anything remotely like Moon Shadow. Also I forgot to mention last time how helpful the hosts were assisting us to book tours etc. They even managed to get us a 10% discount. We will definitely be back a third time. Thank you Gerry and Beat for another memorable visit to the Bay of Islands.

  • An unforgettable holiday in paradise

  • Wow! What a spot. Even though we saw the photos of the views and the apartment on Booking. com the real deal was amazing. The art was incredible and the apartment was very warm, modern and comfortable . Our stay needed to be for another couple of nights at least to have a good look around Paihia. There is so much to see & do in this Paradise not to mention the abundancy of day trips, restaurants & walks. We will definitely visit Moon Shadow again and will recommend it to our friends & family. Thanks Gerry and Beat, the breakfast was absolutely delicious you were wonderful hosts and could not do enough for us. You had thought of everything to make the stay so very enjoyable

  • We cannot think of anything that could be done to improve Moon Shadow. It has top marks from us.
