We loved our stay with Carolyn and Ron Booker at Drury Homestead! They have restored a lovely colonial home built in 1860 and it is a place of real charm and tranquility. Incredibly, it is only a 20 minute drive from Auckland Airport. My husband and I were returning from our anniversary trip to South Island and had a one... More

The Drury Homestead was absolutely beautiful, so peaceful and beautifully restored and furnished. Ron and Carolyn were the ultimate hosts, so welcoming, easy to talk to and extremely helpful. The room was lovely and warm and had everything we could possibly need and more and the bed was so very comfortable. Breakfast was divine, loved that the fruit was from... More

Drury Homestead is a lovely place to stay and relax in. Ron and Carolyn made us feel very welcome. The room was clean and very comfortable with views overlooking the garden and fields. It felt like we had stepped back in time, the home was tastefully decorated and filled with antiques. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to perfection. Whenever... More

Many thanks to Ron and Carolyn for their warm hospitality. Their home has so much history and character that it was worth the drive to Drury to stay there. As Carolyn said to us, "The best vacations I remember have all been associated with the people I've met, rather than the place." We couldn't agree with you more, although your... More

Hard to leave this elegant, charming, restful homestead. Ron and Carolyn provide warm conversation or will let you be, depending on what you prefer. As life long residents of NZ, they know everything you need to know and more. The birdsongs, peaceful music of the nearby creek and the presence of many animals, including dog, cat, chickens, sheep, and goats... More

The Drury Homestead was one of our favourite stays in New Zealand. It's location is perfect for those looking to stay just outside Auckland whether on your way south to enjoy different attractions or north to go back to the airport. Plus it's found in a quiet spot three minutes away from the main highway. The grounds are beautiful! Pulling... More

Carolyn and Ron will make you feel at home as soon as you step onto their property. Their pets, Rufus the cat and Tip the dog, will make your stay even more meaningful if you are an animal lover. Carolyn even took out a go kart to keep the children occupied. Had to check out at 9 pm since we... More

We stayed here on the way from the Northland to Coromandel, it was just a night to break the long travelling, but if we did know about the place we might have taken two nights here. The house looks very authentic (as far as I can say something about it), very nicely decorated and a nice garden around it. When... More

Caroline has the warmest of welcomes as you arrive at Drury Homestead ... an 1860s home just moments off Hwy 1 south of Auckland. Just 20 minutes from the airport (take Hwy 20 toward Manakua, then south to the Drury exit) and a quick 35 minutes to downtown ... it is wonderfully placed for exploring the northern quarter of the...
