Situated just twelve minutes from Whangarei domestic airport which connects with Auckland International airport. We are happy to offer a shuttle service to and from Whangarei airport if required. The trip into the CBD takes fifteen minutes but we do recommend you have some form of transport.Rested after your journey in our comfortable beds, take a bush walk to the Whangarei Falls or look out over the city from the top of Mt. Parihaka and visit the site of an old Maori Pa. Join the locals as they stride out around the Hatea Loop and see the marine activity at the town basin. A cup of coffee or a meal at one of the many cafe's and restaurants there and perhaps a little retail therapy at the same time. Arts and crafts can be seen at various venues some set in beautiful gardens, and museums to be enjoyed as well as our national bird the kiwi at Barge Park. Surfs up at the patrolled Ocean beach just twenty minutes away and from there it is possible to walk over the hill to Urquarts bay, just one of the many walking trails to explore. Horse trekking across farms or maybe a day out on the boat to catch that fish that has your name on it. Whatever gives you pleasure I am sure you will find it here in Whangarei in the winterless North. Relax at the snug with a wine and BBQ on the deck and watch the sunset over the harbour. Love it here!

  • Was a bit difficult to find based on directions given

    Was a bit difficult to find based on directions given. Didn't realize the site was a basement suite until arrival, but it was spacious, clean and we had comfortable beds. The property is now sold, otherwise would suggest an outdoor patio area for guests would be beneficial.
