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...

My wife and I stayed at Kauri Villas for 3 nights as part of our Christmas and New Year break, this was not our main venue but soon after arriving and meeting Susie and Drew we wish we had booked in for longer, we were soon made to feel very comfortable and "at home" in the suite of 3 rooms...

This was the perfect place for us to stay to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Drew and Susie were generous hosts and could not have been more helpful. The setting is magnificent and the accommodation was lovely. We stayed in the lodge, which is furnished with everything you could possibly need, but also had the benefit of Drew's delicious breakfast....

Stayed 3 nights in self-catering unit. Very well appointed! Comfortable, beautiful location, hot tub, friendly pets, gracious hosts and delicious home-made marmalade. What more could you ask for? Recommend for anyone who wants a quiet, peaceful location.

Planned to stay one night and stayed three. Best marmalade jam i have tasted. Very tastefully furnished . Loved the cows, sheep, chooks and Rimi the dog and the two cats. Drew and Susie were the perfect hosts and we were blown away by the spectacular scenery, beaches, walks of the Whangarei area. Majella and Stewart King Portland Australia
