The Mousetrap - it's a Paihia landmark with its quirky features and amazing location.
This successful backpackers' lodge is right in the middle of the Paihia backpacking community. Easily managed by a couple, it sleeps up to 35 guests in a variety of room and dormitory formations, with the added extra of another four bedroom dormitory currently used for staff over the heavy summer months.
Just a few months ago, lockdown created havoc throughout our country, and the Mousetrap didn't escape this uproar. But - since dropping to Level 1 it's as though nothing has happened. Occupancy is running red hot as are all the bars and restaurants in this corner of our world.
Three well equipped kitchens, large and clean bathrooms, two good sized lounges with a double-sided fireplace are matched by great seaviews from the wide, well-used deck. And that sea is only 70 metres away with one of Paihia's top swimming beaches awaiting Mousetrap guests.
And most importantly - the three level building is set at the rear of the 1100sqm section leaving ample room for future development. It's zoned commercial, so just awaiting your new ideas.
Your choices are to continue the current successful business or develop part or all of the property.
