Kaurl Villas is situated in a breathtaking part of the country. The accommodation itself is extremely clean and cosy with excellent facilities. Drew and Susie are fantastic hosts and thoroughly looked after me during my stay. There is a great bush walk on the property where you can see Wetas and native flora and fauna and the surrounding area of...

the perfect place to visit if you're looking for somewhere quiet to escape the rat race, and indulge in some outdoor activities and/or some indoor R&R. Plenty of books and games to keep you amused at any time of year. The outdoor Spa, underneath the star-filled sky, was much needed after a morning climb to the summit of nearby Mount...

three of us taking a short motorcycle tour from Auckland to the Whangarei area and booked a night at Kauri Villas. Our expectations were fulfilled. We experienced a warm welcome from Drew who made us tea on arrival and entertained us with his tales of travel around the world and his many years living in Africa. This was especially welcome...

Originally when planning our trip to New Zealand we had not intended to stop off in Whangerei however my sister sent me a magazine highlighting the Whangarei Heads area and it looked so very beautiful that we decided to make an extra stop. We are so glad we did. In fact our only regret is that we couldn't stay more...

Amazing views, Lovely, neat and clean. Everything that you would need was provided. The homemade bread and jams where delightful. Great place just to relax and read a good book or not far to go into town. The rolling hills are breath taking.

I stayed here in January with family and was really blown away by this place - not only does it have amazing views, a beautiful, tranquil atmosphere, and is partly surrounded by some gorgeous New Zealand rainforest (the walk on the property is really beautiful, complete with waterfall), but the rooms are all really lovely, clean and comfortable (great beds!)...

Due to my pop's recent sudden drop in health and then passing away, our large extended family were in need of a lot of accommodation and at very short notice. Susie and Drew were welcoming and understanding from the start and went out of their way to accommodate us - as much as delivering two mattresses to our family home...
