“Beautiful luxury B&B Villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

The villa is exceptionally beautiful, surrounded by a magnific garden full of small animals and birds. It is lovely to sit on the veranda and just enjoy the house and garden.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless clean (and cleaned every day). Everything is very spacious and well taken care of.

Breakfast is also 5* and served at your convenience by the very nice and engaged owners, who are very helpful in giving advice for daytrips etc.

Overall it is an absolutely luxury treat and very recommendable!

Dear Petsko,

Roger & I thank you so much for taking the time out of your very busy day to write a lovely TripAdvisor review.

We are so glad you enjoyed your 2 night stay here; with dinner both evenings at TopSail - just the best restaurant in Whangarei; we think! And you were able to visit the Bay of Island, swim with Dolphins and visit the Great Kauri Tree in the Waipoua Forest.

Next time, must sees are: Kiwi North with Museum, Heritage Park & Kiwi House, Whangarei Heads & Ocean Beach & the Tutukaka Coast & we're sure you will be able to fit in the 'Perfect Day' - 3 nights we think!

Hoping you had a very successful trip & safe journey home.

Kind regards
Valerie & Roger

We stayed here one night and loved the beautiful surroundings. We stopped at Ransom winery and picked up a bottle of wine then at So French in Warworth for goose pate, cheeses and French bread.

What a wonderful evening it was. Breakfast the next morning was glorious. Would definitely recommend.

This was one of the best places I have had the pleasure of staying! Everything right down to the smallest detail was extraordinary. The room was perfect and the view of the lake was so peaceful and relaxing. Roger and Valerie were amazing and so welcoming; they really looked after us. Breakfast in the marvelous dining room was delish. I can't wait to go and stay again the next time I visit Northland :)

Stayed 1 night here on way through Whangarei. Room was lovely and peaceful with fantastic bed and linens.
One of the hosts was unfortunately sick but we were still well looked after. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you so much for taking time to write a review on TripAdvisor, it was very kind of you. I'm also so glad that you felt properly looked after whilst I was recovering from a nasty appendix op!

We hope you enjoyed your trip around New Zealand.

After spending two weeks camping in New Zealand, we decided to treat ourselves for the final night and what a treat it was. Friendly and generous hosts, a well-equipped suite and relaxing views over the duck filled pond, all finished off with a delicious breakfast. They have definitely raised the bar for B&Bs!

Brantome Villa was the second stop on our tour of New Zealand. It is a really lovely property with beautiful gardens. We stayed in the Queen Lakeview Suite, which was lovely. Valerie & Roger were great hosts, who provided us with some really good information on where to visit in and around Whangarei. If you are planning on visit to Whangarei, we would definitely recommend a stay at Brantome Villa.
