Thank you for your review and for the kind comments. We are, however, somewhat puzzled as to your comments about the pool location. In our email response to your initial enquiry we described the facilities here; games room, bush paths etc., and said:- "You also have use of the pool and hot tub by the main house." We thought that... More

We feel so lucky to have landed at Kauri Villas at the beginning of our first trip to New Zealand. Drew and Susie are very welcoming and knowledgable hosts. With their guidance we found wonderful places to hike and eat. It was tempting though just to hang around "home"....where we spent lazy afternoons around the pool. Breakfast was delicious and...

We stayed at Kauri Villas for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The swimming pool, spa pool, pool table, table-tennis table, and 1 hr bush walk to a waterfall, were all utilised. In addition, our host, Drew, was able to take each of us on a scenic flight over the property from the nearby airfield. We adored our time... More

Thank you Brent for your kind comments. The flights were actually conducted as flying lessons! As a qualified flying instructor at the Whangarei Flying Club I was able to put each of you in turn in the left hand seat and give you instruction on flying the plane! That's what makes it special; and if it kindles an interest, so... More

We were welcomed to Kauri Villas by Drew and Susie, like returning members of their family. This was our first visit to Northland and our first encounter with how friendly people are throughout this beautiful region of New Zealand. We stayed three nights over Christmas. Each day our hosts helped us to plan our local itinerary, with accurate tips on... More

the perfect place to visit if you're looking for somewhere quiet to escape the rat race, and indulge in some outdoor activities and/or some indoor R&R. Plenty of books and games to keep you amused at any time of year. The outdoor Spa, underneath the star-filled sky, was much needed after a morning climb to the summit of nearby Mount... More
