We stayed at Aria, which is a two bedroom self-contained wing attached to the Owner's house. The Manager (Paul) checked us in, and gave us the tour, very helpful and friendly, then left us to soak up the jaw-dropping view and utter silence ... well, there may have been a bird or two twittering, but that just added to the...

What a wonderful and unique experience it is staying at the glasshouse. Situated on the cliff with expansive views from all three floor to ceiling glass walls. Or slide open the glass 'walls' to open the whole house and enjoy the quiet, peaceful, natural surrounds. At night, light the inbuilt fire on the deck and enjoy the night time tranquility... More

A long belated review from our trip Jul 2010. We stayed at the Aria, which is a duplex, but you don't park or enter on the same side as the family who owns the other side. The house is on top of a hill that overlooks the ocean, which is beautiful all day. We cooked our meals on the outdoor... More

We spent four nights in March in the Guest House, which sits high on a hillside above the owner's house and has a more than 180 degree open view of the ocean, offshore islands, pasture and woods, plus beautiful sunsets. Even watching rain showers approach was beautiful from the deck of the Guest House. The setting is completely private -... More

Our stay at The Glasshouse was a truly relaxing, luxurious experience. We were at one with nature – being surrounded by it and feeling like we were a part of it. The views of the coast from every room of The Glasshouse are just gorgeous – you can’t help but relax when you are there. It was an odd feeling... More

At the end of a lane almost a mile long and on top a very high hill we arrive at the Ara Roa guest house. We are speechless. Coming from the midwest US (flat, landlocked and endless cornfields) we have never seen such views. We can see for miles and miles across hills and valleys filled with sheep, horses and... More

We stayed in Aria, which was annexed to the owners house. A compact but very smart and well appointed home, with a very comfortable queen bed in one bedroom, and twin beds in the second, and a lovely big bathroom with huge bath looking out over the view. The manager, Paul, provided a travel cot and high chair for our... More

Wonderful place to stay just outside of Whangarei, with amazing views and a modern comfortable feel, fully equipped with everything you could wish for, and a fabulous spa bath with a balcony view of native bush. Very friendly hosts, easy to deal with via email for bookings. There aren't enough superlatives, just go!
