Hi there, I'm Maureen and I'm delighted to welcome you to Fareham House. Over the last 120 years, Fareham has been a farmhouse, a boarding school and an international development college - a place of togetherness and community endeavour. My sisters and I are drawing on this legacy as we bring Fareham back to life. It's a big job, but we're loving creating a friendly, relaxed and open-hearted home where all are welcome. Friends and family, and visiting workers from around the world, are helping us do this. We're using our international experiences and inspiration from Fareham's past to make the perfect home-away-from-home for our guests. You can choose from one of our six rooms, or book the whole guest wing: - Kawakawa: single - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) - Remutaka: twin/triple - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) - Titoki: queen - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) - Tararua: queen - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) - Matai: queen - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) - Totara: family - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) - Fareham: guest wing - www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/ (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Whether you're visiting as part of a big adventure, need somewhere handy for a family event, or are just after some rest and relaxation, we look forward to seeing you soon.
