About Bayswater’s owners

Louise and Chester Rendell originally purchased the property in 1983 when it was a Motel and Tea House.  It took about six weeks for them to work out that there is no money in “scones, jam and cream” and it wasn’t long before the ‘Courtyard Restaurant’ morphed out of the original Tea House. Later this became ‘Bistro 40’ and then ‘Only Seafood’ was established above Bistro 40 in 1991.

The holiday house rental ‘Bayswater’ launched in 2007. Up until then, it had been Chester and Louise’s family home but they moved to where Only Seafood was when this popular restaurant moved down to the ground floor – Bistro 40 disappeared. Sounds confusing, but it isn’t really!

Over the last 12 years, Bayswater has become a popular place for people to stay in Paihia. They hope you will come and stay with them and enjoy what Paihia and the Bay of Islands have to offer.
