  • Lovely spot a few steps from a fabulous beach for hours of endless strolling or splashing. Our unit was exceptional with functional and nicely stocked kitchen, comfy beds with luxury linens and everything spotless. Liz was quick to respond and easy to communicate with. Checking in instructions clear and easy to follow. We recommend this unit to future guests.

    Located on beautiful Bream Bay in New Zealand's Northland. Close to shops, the beach and other amenities. Comfortable bed and great shower. Off street parking.
  • Excellent place. The best value we have seen anywhere so far on our travels on the north island. An entire guest unit at a very good price. Richard provided some tips on places to see in area and farther north.

    Johann2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Richard's home is a perfect spot to stay up north. He is incredibly friendly and hospitable. You can see the sun rise over the horizon, and it's beautiful. I would definitely return!

    Sean2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We thought we were booking a room and got an entire apartment just for us! It was great for us, especially because we arrived late and still wanted to cook. So we didn't bother anyone and Richard was still so attentive to give us a lemon for the fish. He is very personable and attentive. We really enjoyed our privacy and the nice contact with him too!

    Tina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is our 2nd stay with Richard. Wish we had booked more nights in the beginning as this bnb has gotten very popular. The home is very clean and comfy and we would stay again.

    Janet2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is really fantastic. You have everything you need and much more. The house is huge and really clean and tidy. Richard is a wonderful host, he is always friendly and laughing. We instantly felt home. I would give 6 stars if I could. The price is unbeatable. Thank you very much for having us, wishing you all the best

    Moritz2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • GOOD VALUE. The unit is new and of high quality. The bed is extremely comfortable (firm mattress), the living room is a bit minimal but very functional. Richard is laid back and welcoming. He made us feel at home while providing us total privacy. The beaches were a short drive away. Great place for a short stay!

    Kara2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Richard was friendly and welcoming when we arrived. The place is beautiful clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Communication was great and we really appreciated being able to check in ,in the morning. We had a great time in the area and will definately recommend to others

    Please don’t arrive till your self isolation is complete. Our modern home is the new canal development of the Marsden Cove Marina near One Tree Point about 30 minutes south of Whangarei. Great stop between Auckland and Paihia. We are a 5 minute walk to beaches and have kayaks available for use on the canal 50 metres away. Long walks along Ruakaka Beach are a 5 min drive away. We are a quiet older couple with a friendly fox terrier. We can offer breakfast and dinner at reasonable prices.
    We have 2 bedrooms available, one queen and one with 2 king singles that can be joined to make a kingsize if required. These 2 bedrooms are in a separate area of the home with their own bathroom. We only take one group at a time so you have the bathroom to yourself. Additional guests using the second bedroom are $35 each per night. (If you only require the second bedroom it is the rack rate advertised.) So, if you are 2 people requiring 2 rooms there is a $35 surcharge per night. (To pay through AirBnb you can book for 3 people. To book for 3 singles please book for 4 people.) No stairs. No cleaning fee added when you book.
    A great launch pad for visiting the Far North. We are a quiet beach location just 10km off SH1. One of the best boat ramps in the north is 2 minutes away at Marsden Cove Marina . Fishing charters are available from Marsden Cove too. 10 minutes away at the Ruakaka township there is a supermarket, doctor, bank, more cafes, and takeaway shops. Waipu Golf Club is a 20 minute drive away. It is an all weather links course. The Marsden Bay Christian Camp is a couple of minutes walk away. We are a quiet haven if you prefer to escape the busyness of camp life. There is a great little cafe at the Marsden Cove Marina just a short walk away and a Sports Bar (The Porthouse) a few minutes away.
  • Jennifer and Mike are a very friendly couple with an amazing house. Communication was swift, and they were flexible about check-in and check-out time. Jennifer made us some awesome breakfast, it could have been easily served in a restaurant. :) I would highly recommend them and would be happy to stay with them again.

    Susan2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great relaxed experience with Jennifer and Mike. We were very grateful that they welcomed us into their lovely home and it was such a pleasure to meet them and their friendly dog. We were in Ruakaka to catch up with friends and Jennifer and Mike's house was perfect for us to come back to read and relax after such a busy week. Very welcoming hosts.

    Justin2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and very clean place to stay in a quiet area. Arrival and departure were very flexible. Definitely recommend it!

    Silke2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • For discerning travellers seeking a quiet retreat in a lovely modern home far enough away to feel like you’re escaping the madding crowd, this is the perfect place. Jennifer and Mike (and let’s not forget sweet little Millie who is the real boss and star attraction!) are warm and inviting hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in every way. Everything is clean and comfortable, the linen used is top quality and although we were too late to enjoy Jennifer’s cooking for dinner, we did take her up on her offer to make us a delicious cooked breakfast (at a very reasonable cost - so take up these options if you can!) We got plenty of tips of places to visit in the area and where to eat locally and even walked together to the canal 50 metres away to admire the view. I highly recommend anyone to stay a night or several nights.

    Aleeza2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifull house and very clean!!!

    Viviana2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely clean tidy place to stay. The hosts are very accommodating with great communication and clear directions to their place. Having the two bedrooms and bathroom all self contained gives a great combo of staying at someone’s house whilst also not at all feeling like intruding. Thanks for a great stay.

    Christel2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful, new home set up perfectly for guests to have their private space. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Very friendly and gracious hosts. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Laurie and John, Alberta, Canada

    Laurie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jennifer and Michael are wonderful hosts. They'll make you feel welcome, but give you space if you desire. Their house is lovely and do spring for the dinner option, you won't regret it!

    Modern, well appointed self contained two bedroom apartment. Stand-alone building close to main house with parking space on the property. Close to the local shopping centre & a short drive to the world class Marsden Point Marina and Ruakaka Surf Beach makes this a very central location to fantastic local attractions & amenities. An hour and a half from Auckland makes this location the perfect weekend escape from the city or a great stop-over on a trip to explore beautiful Northland!
    Beautiful sunsets and sunrises at Bream Bay with peace and tranquility by the Ruakaka river. A very quiet and private location with a deck, furnished with outdoor furniture and sun umbrella for enjoying sunsets and sunrises. Walk or swim at beautiful Ruakaka Surfbeach! 10kms to Waipu township, 20kms to Waipu Cove and Beach, 20 minutes to Whangarei City which offers many local attractions.
    Our neighbourhood is very quiet, in a cul-de-sac with no through traffic. We have off-street parking for one car, and other parking can be arranged. We can also arrange parking for a boat if required.
  • Great place to stay and in a lovely quiet location. Gordi was there to meet us when we arrived and gave us lots of local tips and info. The apartment is a very good size with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, great shower, comfy sofas, and very comfortable bed. Lots of nice homely touches make this the kind of place you wish you were at for much longer. We loved everything about it.

  • Thistle Do is a really comfortable, stylish house and extremely well equipped, with everything you could need, and spotlessly clean. We were only there one night, but could easily have spent longer as it is very conveniently situated. It has a lovely deck and seating area. We booked very last minute and Merrill was very accommodating and quick to respond. I would definitely recommend and would certainly stay again, hopefully for longer next time.

    Jean2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Merril did eveything so that our 2-night stay at Thistle do was very nice! House is very well equipped and nicely decorated. Beach in Ruakaka is just amazing so it's a very nice place to relax.

    Sabine2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Spent 24 nights at Harbourside and had a great time. The apartment is very, very clean and has all the necessities in the bath and kitchen and Michelle and Russell were accommodating with additional requests we had. The beds are very comfortable and the apartment is private and quiet with epic views of the harbour and the sunsets. It’s a great location to explore the area but come back to a quiet place. They came in weekly to clean and freshen our bedding and linens, which was so nice. I highly recommend their place for a short or long stay.

    Laura2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wow what a place to stay, the apartment is great and the view the best we have seen. Russell is very helpful with advice about what to do nearby and the kayak and dinghy was great fun. We would love to return one day. Thankyou John.

It meets my needs perfectly.

Perfect private bathroom and awesome view!! Heather and Brad are really nice and lovely people !!! The mattress is so comfy, we didn’t want to get up in the morning. In my opinion, the price is too cheap for the service you get. (First air bnb since 3 months with flyscreen, so no worries leaving the windows open :D). Would definitely come back back. Highly recommend !!!

  • Wonderful airbnb close to the beautiful beach! A very clean and modern flat at the back of their house but still feeling private. Didn't meet Mark and Barbara but got very clear communication about access to the flat and other information if needed. Really enjoyed being able to use the kayaks and bikes. Would definitely stay again!

The place was beautifully tidy and well laid out, the kitchen was great for cooking and the outside area was so lovely to sit outside in the evenings (though as always with NZ don't forget the mosquito repellent!) It was also wonderfully close to the beach, only a 5 min walk. We would have loved to stay longer and would visit again in a heartbeat!

    Richard2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The bach was extremely convenient for a relatively quiet beach with waves gentle enough for the kids to body board in. The washing machine was convenient for a longer stay and the outdoor shower was amazing in keeping the sand out of the house!!!!

  • Really enjoyed our time at Clive and Tracey’s house. It was such an awesome location! So close to the beach. We made full use of the bean bags on the lawn. The house had everything you would need for a summer get away. Would stay again!

    Olivia2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Clive’s place is awesome. You can’t beat the location, and the house itself resembles a perfect kiwi batch. Would definitely stay again.

    Andrew2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cool place! Had everything we needed and so close to the beach. Loved the added touches of bean bags & hammock. So much space. Clive was amazing with communication. Look forward to returning again!

    Spacious private self contained unit with ensuite, laundry, kitchen and use of indoor swimming pool, pool table and spectacular views over Bream Bay and islands.
    Our unit is home away from home with all mod cons. We supply wheetbix, cornies, milk, home bottled peaches for breakfast.
    Only 2 minutes drive to the closest beach (patrolled in Summer) with many other fantastic beaches within 15min drive. If you are into surfing there are lots of options from 4min to 15min drive including the popular Waipu Cove. Ruakaka shopping Centre is a 5min drive with a good variety of eateries in the area. Most popular being Pizza Barn in Waipu (10mins drive) who make yummy gourmet pizzas and their own Craft Beers. Try the Tropical Cyclone but be careful, they are devine but 8% ALC/Vol so will set you on your ear if you indulge in too many. Also the Port House is very popular with a great atmosphere, great food and friendly staff. If you care for a fun day at the gallops, Ruakaka race course is a 5min drive away. New Zealand's only Oil Refinery at Marsden Point (10min drive) has an informative visitors Centre with some great scale models and videos of workings of the refinery. Waipu Museum is also worth a visit with it's Scottish history. Waipu hosts the Highland Games on the 1st Jan every year which are well worth heading along to. If you are into a spot of fishing, Marsden Cove Marina has charter boats so why not go out and catch a big one. There are also many great walking tracks around the Bream Bay area with great views, native bush and bird song. Take a trip to the Waipu Falls and Waipu Caves, don't forget your torch for the Caves where you will see Stalactites, Stalagmites and glow worms.

    My place is good for Solo Adventurers. This room has a very comfortable king single bed. My place is a few minutes from town by car yet set into the bush. If you need a double bedroom I have another listing "Cosy Artsy Retreat set into native Bush." I welcome walkers on Te Araroa - The Great Walk. If you would like a meal I can provide one for you. Let me know in advance. Price negotiable. Please check in after 4:30 pm as I work at a school and am usually at school until that time
    My place is small and unique. It is a Lockwood house built in 1965 which features an atrium garden. The house is set into native bush at the back yet is very close to the centre of Whangarei. The is a stream at the bottom of the gully which sings merrily after heavy rain.
    This is a very quiet street with native birds flying around frequently. Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a short walk down the hill. This is a subtropical garden with many pleasant walks spread over many acres. It also has a cool cafe..The Quail Cafe.
  • A lovely place to stay.

  • This place is so comfortable and homey! There is lots of space- very comfortable for a group - feels like a cabin type of set-up with the kitchen area built into the detached garage next door. Anntoinette is so welcoming, and even shared some of the produce from her garden! And you cannot beat the proximity to the beach! Such soft sand and miles of beach to yourself! Amazing! I would love to stay here again!

    Stephanie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Antoinett is a very hospitable and caring host, the sleepout is comfy, clean & private -we especially appreciated the kingsize bed (as we‘re both 1,80 m) & the private bathroom! Also the kitchen in the garage is quite convenient with a big refrigerator & everything needed to cook breakfast & meals.

    Come and share our amazing property with us. Set just back from the edge of a cliff bordering the Whangarei Harbour you will find a private 1 bedroom cottage, fully equipped with a kitchenette and bathroom, surrounded by sea views and native bush. A short stroll through the puriri trees will lead you to your very own secluded beach.
    The sheltered bay is ideal for boat anchorage and Parua Bay has an excellent boat ramp just around the corner. The Parua Bay Village will supply you with all of your everyday needs, with the Parua Bay Tavern a short 10 min drive away and The Deck, 5 minutes in the opposite direction. Ocean Beach is a 15 minute drive around the coast.
  • This is definitely a one-of-a-kind place to stay when visiting the Northland Region: The setting is incredible quiet and private, with an amazing vista over the bay. The modern house is clean, comfortable, and offers everything you could possibly need for your stay. The hosts offer a self-check-in, so you can decide for yourself how much privacy you’d like. There‘s a couple of pretty walks and beaches in the area, but you could also definitely spend whole afternoons sitting on the beautiful deck, relaxing, watching the bay, and listening to the birds (which we did). If you are looking for a quiet, idyllic getaway, this is the perfect place for you. We stayed for three nights towards the end of our New Zealand round trip, and we wish we could’ve stayed even longer.

  • Erin’s place is one of the best AirBnB’s I have experienced. Such a peaceful place and it features a stunning view of the bay. The cottage is comfortable, clean, and well-designed. I want to go back already!

    Jonathan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Erin’s place is just gorgeous. Clean and oh so comfortable. We spent a couple of nights here and found it hard to drag ourselves away from the serenity! We did manage a hike down to Peach Cove followed by a glorious swim at Ocean Beach... and then a soak in the outdoor bath tub. Possibly the best day ever. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a stay here.

    Cam2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this place is perfect and goes beyond the photos and description. The setting is incredible and very special. So quiet and private. Absolutely the spot to reconnect with your loved one. Erin and Jason offer self check in so you can choose how much privacy or sociability you would like. The outside bath was a highlight for us to drink champagne in for our New Years Eve stay. The house has everything you would need and some extra touches (like the soft rug on the couch to throw over your laps while the doors are wide open to enjoy the fantastic view until after dark ) make this a comfortable and welcoming home away from home. The private bay to swim or use the provided water gear is on your doorstep. We would suggest reef shoes as it has those fabulous NZ oyster shells. It was only a one night stay for us but we will be back!

    Teresa2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed here for my wedding, I had my bridal party getting ready in there morning & we came back after our wedding finished. Everyone commented on the stunning location & views. It made our getting ready process so serene and when my new husband and I returned for the night we had a soak in the outdoor bathtub. Absolutely incredible. We hope to return for our one year anniversary.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Erin’s Bach....photographs on-site do not do it justice. It is spotlessly clean, spacious, elegant and supremely comfortable with many little touches to exceed any expectations. Kathy and Bryon are great hosts who are on-site should you have any problems or queries, but do not impose. The beautiful beach is only a very short walk away. We would happily stay here again.

    Celia2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at Erin's Bach. It was impeccably clean, perfectly located only a few steps away from the beach, beautifully decorated and there were so many lovely extra touches in the way of food items provided, toys for our little one, extra beach towels etc. Kathy and Bryon were fabulous hosts who did everything to make us comfortable and feel at home (which we did!). We shall definitely be back and do highly recommend staying at Erin's Bach.

  • Erin’s Bach was a terrific place to call home for three nights. It was very tastefully decorated, airy, and spacious. The afternoon and end-of-day sun on the back deck was delightful, and the 90-sec walk to the beach was so convenient. Kathy and Bryon were kind hosts and readily accessible. The extras provided in the way of food items, coffee, tea, and bathroom products were much appreciated.

    Dan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous place. Every detail, every need handled. The location was as billed..across a street from one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen. Our first evening as we walked on the beach, dolphins were playing in the surf. Erin’s Bach is beautiful and spotless. We slept like babies completely refreshed from jet lag. We will definitely be back.

    Missy2019-12-19T00:00:00Z

    The Annex is an older building that was a sleepout. It has two bedrooms and a living/ dining area, with a wood fire, sink, fridge, hot plate and microwave. There is a small shower room and separate toilet. It is situated on a farmlet with harbour views, 7km south of the city centre , one hundred metres up an unsealed driveway off State Highway One. This is a busy main road, so there can be road noise. It is a working farmlet, our hens free range and our trees drop leaves and small branches.
    There is NOT a full kitchen - only a fridge, hot plate, microwave, kettle and toaster. Tea, coffee, cup of soup , cereals, bread, butter and condiments are included. The living area has a TV and DVD player with some DVD's. There are plenty of books to read. I have made sure the beds are really comfortable. You are totally private, if that is your wish. The free WiFi code is in the Information booklet if you have a laptop. You may use our washing machine or dryer for no charge.
    We are in a semi rural area with only a few houses around us. Whangarei CBD is 7 kms from us and has many good cafes and restaurants which you will find in our information folder. There are a number of good walks and cycle tracks and many parks. The sub tropical Quarry garden is worth a visit and there is an Arts Quarry as well. The lookout on Parihaka gives you views across the city. There is a picturesque drive along the harbour's edge out to Ocean Beach and there is a nice cafe towards the end of it. About 20 min south is the historical Scottish settlement of Waipu with its small museum. An hour SW is the unique Kauri museum and the Bay of Islands is only about 40min north of us. We have numerous beaches both harbour and ocean within half an hour's drive all around us and there is the famous deep sea fishing base at Tutukaka about 40 min drive NE of us.

  • Staying in Eilean's annexe was a great experience and the little things, such as all the choice of breakfast things, including fresh eggs from their own chickens and the home made brownies made the stay quite unique. The location was wonderful, only 100m away from the road, but it felt like staying right in the countryside and was so peaceful. I would love to stay there again if I ever make it back that way.

  • What a find!! While being a secluded sanctuary with amazing views, amenities and a fantastic host, the area also has so much to offer. We spent our time visiting many of the amazing beaches, Waipu Caves, and also relaxing at Helen’s amazing home. A fantastic spot for a couple, or two couples to relax and treat yourself. Helen is an amazing host, providing local knowledges, tips and also allowing as much privacy as you need. The house itself has everything you need, is exceptionally well presented, spacious and welcoming. We will definitely be back and highly recommend.

    Carla2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • Helen’s place is just lovely! The view is stunning, we spent hours on the deck just relaxing in the sunshine. We also used it as a great base to explore - south, north, inland - it was all so easy! The house is beautifully appointed, easy to relax in and Helen was super welcoming and attentive without being too much in our space. Yes, property is a little isolated so you do need a car to get around but hey, you heat nothing but birdsong and the star gazing is brilliant!

    Jackie2019-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning home with spectacular views both inside and outside. Four of us stayed for five nights and really loved the indoor/outdoor flow. The house is immaculate, light and airy with lovely modern furnishings and great views from the kitchen, dining and lounge area as well as the main bedroom and ensuite. We slept in the main bedroom and found the bed really comfortable. We were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather and so really enjoyed the outdoor dining table for our meals (however, if the weather isn’t good the indoor dining table has fabulous views and there is a fireplace and a heat pump). We loved the location - really secluded, quiet and so relaxing but not too far (in a car) from the beach, amenities etc. Helen is lovely and made us feel so welcome. I really liked the special touches e.g. Helen made us some fresh yoghurt and left us croissants in addition to the more standard breakfast items.

    Simone2019-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Julian2018-09-08T00:00:00Z

Helen was very warm and welcoming and made us feel at home all through our stay. We also got to enjoy the scenic beauty and the authenticity of Takahiwai. It’s definetly been a pleasant stay and we would love to visit again.

    Restful peaceful and quiet my house is set in the forest yet close to town. I have another room listed separately "Comfy single room with kauri tree view." Wake to the sound of native birds calling and see pigeons - kereru - tui and fantails as they dip and glide over the house. Kiwi call at night and sometimes come to your window. Please note that the house is about a 40 minute walk from the bus stop. I might be able to pick you up. Contact me. Come take your load off and refresh.
    This is a smaller house made of solid wood and its bush setting gives it the feel of a tramping hut on a trail. Its sunny and warm and has a heat pump for winter warmth. Its is very quiet and peaceful and almost retreat like yet it is very close to the centre of town.
    My place is a short walk from from Whangarei Quarry Gardens a beautiful rambling subtropical beauty with its own cafe with very yummy cakes and and coffees. My place is also very close to bush walks up into the Coronation Forest, a small Lake stocked with many rainbow trout for anglers and the local stadium is virtually a hop step and a jump away for fitness sessions.
  • What a beautiful place to stay! Julie is a sweet person and we absolutely loved her homemade bread and apricot jam!! Cosy & clean. Smooth communication and easy to find. Would def stay again!!

    Sabina2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • To say that Julie’s place is the best Airbnb in New Zealand is an understatement! It’s probably the best in the world. She was incredibly kind and welcoming, and even made us freshly baked bread for breakfast! Her home was clean, lovely, and in a great location. Really couldn’t have asked for more, she went above and beyond what I expected. Thanks for everything Julie!

  • Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay with Julie. She is a wonderful host and made everyone in her presence feel welcomed. She's always smiling and had many interesting stories to tell. She helped us with rides to and from the intercity bus stop and with getting groceries a couple times. Her place is homey and has a unique charm, we loved the center garden and all of the bird song nearby. The daily homemade bread and spreads were amazing! Her place was always clean and the wifi was good. We highly recommend staying with Julie at her place if you're in Whangarei, we will miss you Julie!

Kitchen had everything we needed to cook. Common areas were cozy! I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone who want to spend time in Whangarei.

  • Just as nice as advertised, such a relaxing stay. Views were great, the apartment was clean and well set up. We enjoyed use of the Kayak. We highly recommend a relaxing getaway here. Friendly with great communication.

  • Most of the time you look at pictures on the web to try to decide where to stay & most of the time the property doesn’t quite look the same ‘in person’. This place is the exact opposite. Pictures don’t do it justice. Panoramic views from near continuous floor to ceiling windows are stunning. Walk across the not-too-busy road & right down a few steps to the beach. Beautifully furnished yet cozy & comfortable interiors plus lovely courtyard and easy access parking. Linda is a very nice person & responds quickly to answer questions, etc. we’ve spent Februarys in NZ the last 3 years and have travelled all over this beautiful country & this is by far the nicest and friendliest place we’ve stayed

  • Extremely beautiful place to stay. Very easy to find with a perfect location. Directly across the road from beach access. The home itself is sparkling clean with lovely modern decor. Communication with the host was effortless with plenty of suggestions and information on the local area.

    Cayla2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is really spacious and clean, the uninterrupted panoramic views in the living room are really the best feature, overlooking the sea. Linda was a fab host, she gave us a very detailed tour of the property on arrival and was very responsive when we contacted her. Everything we needed was provided, and their are shops within easy access to top up. Access to a kayak and bikes are ideal for those that wish to explore. The only negative from our entire stay was one night the tenants in the unit downstairs playing loud music into the early hours of the morning; the bass was very disturbing in the master bedroom and living area. Linda attempted to contact them, and when we went down to ask them to turn it down it did reduce in volume (we could still hear it but quiet enough that we could sleep). Out of control of the host but not what we had planned for a chilled weekend. I would stay again. Thanks Linda!

    Sarah2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Linda's place is perfect for a quiet retreat by the sea while being close to the nearby beaches and townships. Linda is also a wonderful host who is attentive and has great insight into the local area. You can expect beautiful sun rises and sun sets as well as sun all day long.

    Yemo2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The views from Linda's apartment are truly stunning. Great facilities and very private.

    Scott2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great location - incredible views. Linda is one of the best hosts I've had.

    Our sunny cottage is clean and Comfy it is within very easy walking distance to a safe swimming beach, tennis court and local shop. There are several nice walking tracks in the vicinity. And a surf beach around 6km away. For those who love to explore walking tracks the Mt Manana track is a must to do and there are several other tracks in the area that are very popular and recommended. The Pines Golf course is about 20 minutes away. For your extra enjoyment we have recently added NETFLIX.
    Lovely peace and quiet and a mesmerising close up view of Mt Manaia. Sometimes we hear the KIWI CALLING at night, they are VERY CLOSE. Mt Manaia has a fantastic walking track and wonderful views. The cottage is a separate stand alone building of one level. Cosy and secure enough for one person and easily big enough for four people. It is quiet and sunny. Pride is taken with the presentation, comfort and cleanliness of this property. We try to keep necessary items available that guests may forget to bring. (Salt/pepper, cooking oil, glad wrap etc.) You will also find extra bathroom items that are not usually included. (Disposable razor, comb, toothbrush, skin lotion, plus shampoo/ conditioner. Continental breakfast is provided for our Air BnB customers.
    We love being in a smaller community that is still close enough to town. The Whangarei Heads is very beautiful and special. It is a quiet beach atmosphere that people enjoy here away from crowds. The walking tracks and scenery are really worth while. Please read (other notes) on price etc. before booking or making your enquiry.
  • We had an amazing time staying at the kiwi cottage, great little place in a lovely location close to the beach. Colleen is a great host.

    Odhran2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, amazing location. Awesome kiwi vibe, would definitely stay again!

    Alex2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and comfortable in a beautiful location. Wonderfully generous hostess.

    Patricia2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We love Colleen’s cottage. It made us barely go outside and stay at her house for one day. We enjoyed the views from the windows and peaceful lifestyle in that town. A stary night was also a bonus for us. Thank you Colleen! We will be back:)

    Jun2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The chalet is adjacent to a beautiful private backyard with chooks and flowers. It is a 3 minute walk to the beach. The chalet has 1950's vintage decor with very comfortable beds, and extremely quiet location. The local store is at the bottom of the driveway. We loved it.

    Judith2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Kiwi Cottage is clean, cosy, comfortable and convenient (for getting to Mt Manaia). Colleen has a lovely home, which she has kept clean and well-equipped. You would want for nothing! Colleen and her husband are hospitable and friendly.

    Irene Chan Ai Ling2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Colleen, the place was great, and we had such a great time. Thank you very much.

    Josie2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Colleen was an amazing host that went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable in her cottage. She was easy to communicate with and left little goodies like milk, fresh eggs and honey for us. Would reccomend anyone to stay here for a beautiful weekend away.

    This rustic tiny cabin on Mangawhai's estuary is the perfect weekender. Being indeed tiny with its 7 sqm, it is nestled on a large, eco friendly property with lots of trees and birdlife, water views and access to kayak or paddle board, if you bring your own. Only 5 min walk to shops, cafe's and chocolate factory, the saturday markets and tavern. its 5min drive to the beach and at night you can often hear the surf. A perfect hide away in the pulse of Mangawhai.
    This is a down to earth place with a wild garden, two cats in the jard and the main cottage made from recycled material. . I live with my 2 sons, Dario and Silva. They both have their separate little dwelling as bedrooms, a Caravan and a former workshop. The cabin itself used to be a little housetruck that got parked up in the garden - without the truck part. Its got a comfy bed, has a balcony with bean bags where you can look out to the estuary through the trees. there is power, a kettle with tea and coffee provided and I can give you some fresh milk in the morning. you have your own private sitting area with a big bbq, that has one element for cooking, and a kitchen bench with a small sink. this outdoor kitchen can only be used in fine weather, as it is not under cover. You have your own outdoor shower, heated with gas. the toilet is a tidy longdrop in the garden. wifi available.
  • Better than a campsite, very close to nature, I loved it. And what a welcome !!!

    Brassat2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute and lovely little cabin, relaxing, a perfect get away ! Britta is a very lovely and welcoming host, we would stay again !

    Clotilde2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay!

    Talia2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous little space with outside shower tucked into the bush, bean bags with a view over the estuary for the morning coffee. Very special little spot.

    Katherine2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely little cabin. A really nice getaway to enjoy nature and just relax. Britta was so friendly and welcoming. Would love to go and stay again. Well worth the price.

    Ceara2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolute delight this little 'tiny cabin' was. Note that it is tiny - so perhaps not ideal for overly tall people - but ideal for one, and I adored it. A beautiful outlook from the bed across gorgeous bush and wetlands, with pukekoes roaming around. The outdoor shower was wonderful - how amazing to have a hot shower looking out straight into the forest, with no walls in front of you. Peaceful and serene, and oh my gosh, the stars at night! Britta was lovely, very helpful, and very patient with my unavoidably constantly changing travel plans! Will likely do the same trip this time next year, and stay again.

    Karolyn2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The tiny cabin is cute, comfortable and a great place to unwind. We truly enjoyed our stay here, the evening spent on the little deck and the outdoors garden shower. Peaceful setting in the garden by the estuary. This place is tiny but offers all you need, very thoughtfully pulled together. Thanks Britta!

    Kathrin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The tiny cabin was great! The bed was so comfortable and everything you need is right there. The cabin is in a great location and the property is such a peaceful place to be.
