three of us taking a short motorcycle tour from Auckland to the Whangarei area and booked a night at Kauri Villas. Our expectations were fulfilled. We experienced a warm welcome from Drew who made us tea on arrival and entertained us with his tales of travel around the world and his many years living in Africa. This was especially welcome...

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... 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... More

I had to find accommodation for quite a large group and stumbled across the "Kauri Villas" online. I'm so glad I found them!! My extended family and I stayed at there for a week. We had quite a large group and Susie and Drew were simply fantastic in helping me organise accommodation for us all. They were wonderful hosts; completely... More

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...

Booked out the lodge and annex room for 9 of us over New Years for 5 nights. Drew & Susie were wonderful, incredibly helpful with everything that we could do around the region, giving us torches and directions for the caves, the best beaches to go to etc. Also were great with giving us everything we needed while staying in...

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.... More

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.
