Buster and Pauline were the best hosts--informative, friendly and great company, (but not intrusive). Pauline makes top-notch breakfasts (heavenly poached eggs) and we also enjoyed one of her home-cooked dinners. The room was comfortable, beautifully furnished and very private (we stayed in the annex). The location was convenient for several stunning walks and not far from several restaurants. We enjoyed...

Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed hosting you. I can't take all the credit for the poached eggs - some has to go to one of our first guests who was a chef, and gave me instructions. Also credit to our beautiful free range chooks who provide fresh eggs each day.

A centurial old villa has been renovated into a very high standard accommodation in beautiful setting with fantastic view from the deck/swimming pool and spa pool. It's close to many attractions (nice restaurant, swimming beach and mountain climbing). Host is very friendly and considerate and their breakfast and meal...

Having stayed at several B & B's around New Zealand we found the Kauri Villas extremely good value. The comfortable bed is to dream of and the breakfast was superb. The views from the villas are surreal as is the whole of the Whangarei Heads area. We highly reccommend this establishment and look forward to receiving the wonderful hospitality from...

Lovely Villa high on the hill overlooking the bay. Fantastic scenery. Comfortable rooms of a high standard and the hostess Pauline was friendly and welcoming from arrival to departure. Breakfast was excellent. Spa, swimming pool and games room kept us occupied when not out on bush walks or beach. Would recommend a stay at Kauri Villas.

Fabulous accommodation, great food, friendly host. We had a lovely stay atop the hill over looking the beautiful Parau Bay. Swimming in the pool and enjoying the sunset we would highly recommend this location, especially if travelling with another couple or children. Thank you Pauline, we will be back!
