This has been a long time coming - a rare opportunity to purchase one of Paihia's better known and popular backpackers. After 17 years of profit and fun, The Mousetrap is now available.
With very attractive financials and happily satisfied clientele, The Mousetrap accommodates 35 guests in a variety of room and dormitory formations. Three well equipped kitchens and large bathroom facilities keep guests happy as they soak up the cosy atmosphere of this character three-level Paihia landmark.
The Mousetrap is right at the heart of Paihia's backpacking community; an ideal location for exploring and experiencing the Bay of Islands' magnificent attractions - sailing, cruising, kayaking, diving, cycle trails, walking, parasailing, paddle-boarding - all this and more only 70 metres away at the safe, sandy beach.
This is a lifestyle for new owners to relish. Easily managed by a couple, the hostel also has staff accommodation in a 4-bed dormitory if needed over those busy summer months.
This is a property that keeps on giving - every corner reveals another whimsical and attractive feature. There are wide sea views from the long, front balcony and in summer guests can move from sun to shade and back again. In winter there are back to back fireplaces in two lounges for that cosy warmth.
It's set at the rear of an 1100m2 section that is zoned for commercial development. The possibilities are only limited by the owners' imaginations. Keep it going as successfully as the current owners or develop and expand in your own style. Just don't miss this opportunity.
