Experience life in the country at our own little piece of rural paradise. Only 15 minutes from Whangarei on 35 acres of farmland we are close to the many stunning beaches and activities that Northland has to offer. Take a walk from your front door across farmland and along the river to visit the beautiful Mangere Falls and an award winning private chapel. You’ll love this place with its rural views, the opportunity to see some of the farming life and the close proximity to local attractions.
Bay of Islands and Kerikeri are each just a short 1 hour 20 minute drive and the stunning Kai Iwi Lakes is just 1 hour 15 minutes away along with many other amazing Northland attractions not far from our door.
Separate from the main house, with its own entrance, this fully self-contained guesthouse is perfect for small and large groups. With 4 bedrooms, a large kitchen and lounge/dining area, separate toilet and bathroom as well as an outdoor dining area and access to a backyard, this guesthouse can sleep up to 12 people plus there is room for portacots for our smallest guests. If you have a larger group then we also have a separate 1 bedroom unit that can sleep up to 4 people so if both units were booked together they could sleep up to 16 people between them both. For more information about our other unit please see our other listing titled "Greenfields - A Rural Retreat".
Large fully equipped kitchen with full size fridge, stove, and dishwasher. The guest house has wifi, free view TV and DVD player with a selection of movies available.
This guesthouse is located on a property of 35 acres which also has 2 other houses on it which all have permanent residents in them (one of which is our own home) and the property is bordered on one side by a river and also has a lovely stream running through part of the property.
The guesthouse is part of a large shed which has had half of it converted into lovely accommodation for our guests. The other half of this shed is used as our own personal work space (please see 'other things to note' for more information on this).
You are welcome to visit the free range chickens and other farm animals . There is a trampoline and outdoor play area for the children. BBQ available on request. Highchair also available on request. There is a lovely walk to a beautiful waterfall on a neighbouring property which is available for you to go and view.
We will happily greet guests, show them around and be available for questions. As we live on the property we are not far away if anything is needed.
During the week (Monday-Friday) from 8am-5:30/6pm we work from home in the shed that is attached to the guesthouse.
This means that at times you will be able to hear some noise from the use of power tools in the shed but this should really only be from one bedroom which shares a wall with the shed, however in talking to guests that have stayed during the week they haven't found this to be to intrusive.
