Great views and a pool/spa to relax in after a long day. Fan breakfast in a peaceful location over looking... More

We loved our stay at Kauri Villas. Pauline is a lovely host, friendly and helpful. The environment is beautiful, with a lovely deck and pool and stunning view. Lovely breakfasts too. The waterfall and rainforest walk on the property is a must

Great find late on a road trip around Whangarei Heads very quite, peaceful setting and great hosts. As we had not preplanned we took the small room not in the main house but it was suitable for our one night stay.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for 3 nights, one more than planned due to the extreme weather over New Year. Pauline and Buster were wonderful hosts and that together with the house and grounds made for a very comfortable and restful stay.

My partner, sons and I had a lovely stay while travelling North. The style, appearance and location of the place is great and our hosts were friendly and accommodating. It is the right distance from town to feel the country & coastal atmosphere after a scenic drive yet not be too far away at all.

We spent an entire night playing music, ping pong, pool, foosball, and darts in the game room. Overall it was a carefree weekend in a really charming place surrounded... More

So peaceful and relaxing, I want to go back right now! Enjoyed the bush walk to the waterfall and then a nice cool off in the pool. Our 3 children were entertained by the sheep, the chickens, the game room, the pool, picking fresh fruit...the list goes on! And OH what a breakfast! A real treat. The house is very... More
