When a guest writes in the Visitor's Book that my "place is like heaven on a stick", then something has been done right. or when the Chairman of the Dutch Bankers' Association writes that it is "a Privilege to stay here", with his family for 4 days: then one feels pretty chuffed. The Villa is just 3 years old, made of best quality materials; it is sited on the "best land in NZ" as another, German, couple described it. Come and share my luck and happiness with this home and location. In-house amenities include games and library; free & fast Wifi; free laundry; free cleaning; free tea/coffee. Great walks in the vicinity; and paradisiacal beaches.

Heaven on Earth!

Children can sleep in the sunken lounge, or in the central atrium, or of course in the bedrooms; three proper adult camp beds and one portacot provided; flat and safe grassy area around the Villa.

The best base to explore the North: 45minutes drive to busy seaside resort of Paihia and historical Waitangi; 30minutes to cultural Kerikeri (cinema & art galleries; NZ's oldest buildings); 45minutes to the giant kauri trees of Puketi Forest; 30minutes to the Rainbow Warrior Memorial at Matauri Bay.

Now in the opposite direction: 40minutes to the surfing beach at Taupo bay; 45minutes to Mangonui & the famous Fish Restnt; 50minutes to the pohutukawa-Christmas tree-lined Coopers beach; 55minutes to Ninety Mile Beach (Cape Reinga is 3hours one way from Villa).

And everywhere one drives there are beaches, bays, beauty.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only: but huge wide decks and ample grounds, so no problem. Pets and even children allowed. Minimum Stay 2 nights applies.
