We have divided our large home in half (locked door between each end) and created an independent self-sufficient home away from home, for guests.

This is an extremely quiet and peaceful home. It would suit 2 couples or a family, however if it's just you, you'll be just as happy

While we will be next door for some of the time, we are very quiet and you won't hear us.

As we both work full time, you will have the pool, BBQ area and garden area all to yourself during week days. This area has a lot of space around it and enjoys all day sun. You have your own access through the ranch slider off the main bedroom, and your own key for your end of the house. Parking is right outside your door.

We have set up the guest accommodation to be self sufficient and independent. The kitchenette consists of a sink, fridge, microwave, pantry, toaster etc. All the facilities are in separate rooms, toilet, shower and the bathroom( including bath).Large groups are given access to a 2nd bathroom ( with another toilet and shower).

You will be warmly welcomed here and we hope you will enjoy the place as much as we do. We are mostly busy and active so tend to do our own thing allowing you to do the same. Those who like privacy will enjoy it here.

This is a leafy, pretty area of Whangarei with lovely homes set amongst the bush. It is safe , quiet and peaceful. There are numerous bush walks close by , as well as being very handy to shops and the central city. It is a 6 min walk to Kensington Park Cafe , which also houses the Kensington Fitness and sports ground. It is an 8 min walk to Quarry Gardens Cafe and an 8 min drive to Whangarei Central shopping mall. Supermarkets are within a few minutes drive.

Whangarei has a reputation as the city with 100 beaches, A large number of these beaches are within 25 - 45mins from our place. You could easily base yourself here and visit a multitude of different beaches every day of the week.

    We were made very welcome and the "half house" was all that we needed and exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend it.

  • We stayed in the newly renovated apartment and it’s fabulous

    We stayed in the newly renovated apartment and it’s fabulous. Very tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and sofas. The kitchen is extremely well equipped for cooks. Location is great, close to the SH1 but in a very quiet neighbourhood.
