Truthfully there is nothing neutral about the Swiss Chalet Lodge Motel Paihia – a delightful 10 unit motel.

From its prime location seconds from the stunning beachfront, local amenities, cafes and shops to its charming Swiss inspired exterior this property exudes the ‘welcome vibe’

Colourful flower boxes give the first hint that this is a special property and the 10 very spacious guest units continue the theme. Extremely well appointed with touches of glowing Macrocarpa throughout they speak to guest comfort.

The motel configuration is 2 x 1 bedroom apartments and 6 x studios and on the top level a spacious 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments with stunning sea views. All have sunny balconies while some have amazing sea views. Chattels are of a high standard with comfortable beds and smart TVs as an example.

There is a private indoor spa pool and a secluded courtyard and guest BBQ area and grounds and public areas are all easily maintained.

The current owners who have operated the motel for 12 years choose to live off site in a large 2 bedroom unit with open plan living/dining/kitchen. This is located right next door to the motel but gives that important degree of separation.
This is leased on a long term basis and would be available to new owners unless they prefer the onsite option. However this would reduce the turnover.

On this subject, you will be very impressed when you see the bottom line this 10 unit property generates. Run with Swiss precision after 12 years experience and with a loyal housekeeping team with the same long tenure and this all means the new owners will benefit.

Now for the moment of truth and you will be delighted you won’t require a Swiss bank account to purchase the property as it’s priced to sell at NZ$2.4 million plus GST (if any)
