Welcome to the Breakwater Motel. Owners and hosts Ken and Lyn opened the newly refurbished Paihia accommodation on April 1, 2012.
We live on-site, ensuring a personalised service that is designed to fit the individual needs of each guest. We are passionate about our motel and the magnificent Bay of Islands, with our goal for each guest to have the most memorable stay in “paradise”.
Every morning at sunrise, you can find us opposite the motel at the beach enjoying the breathtaking view with a coffee. This is after a swim in the ocean, well, Lyn does the swimming and Ken makes the coffee!
We invite you to join us and relax in this unique location we are privileged to call home. Just take a 3 minute stroll to the restaurants, cafés, shops, information centre, and the recently extended Paihia Wharf. Follow the coastline 2km north and you will find the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.
Paihia is the ideal base from which to explore the Northland region.
Breakwater is the place to be – the perfect paradise for a seaside holiday.
