Well what can I say, when we first drove up to the Guest House, our jaws simply dropped to the ground. What a breath taking view to greet us! We knew we had booked a wonderful place and we hadn't even been inside the house yet! We had everything we could possibly need. Incredibly gracious hosts - Raewyn and Grant,... More

We had an fantastic weekend here. Beautifully appointed home situated in amazing location with to die for views. Private yet handy to the very helpful and friendly hosts, this house provided the perfect luxury winter weekend break. We walked down to the charming private beach and also up the hill to see the most incredible views. Once you get here... More

Three of us stayed here for a few nights towards the end of last year, and it was absolutely superb. Beautiful location, the house was spacious and light, all the facilities are what you would hope to find, and the views were spectacular as it’s right on the water - both views from the terrace and from the bedrooms, the...

Our family spent a Christmas here a few years ago. A home away from home no compromises only extras. Lovely location with water access. Great home with an American Hamptons feel by lack of a better description. Comfortable beds and a proper kitchen with a beautiful ocean view.

When our family arrived at this house, we cancelled all our plans to visit other towns and eat out. We just wanted to stay and enjoy this amazing house. Buy groceries in Whangarei and plan to eat in! The view is the kind you'd expect from a Ritz or Four Seasons except it's your own private paradise. I'd describe this... More

Having stocked up with supplies on day 1, the remaining days were spent with a balance of activities (golf, kayaking, walking,), relaxing (reading, sleeping in every day!) and exploring Northland.The guest house is complete in what it provides and it is all 5 star.

WoW!!! We were amazed by our stay (2011) at the Taiharuru Farms Lodge! First of all, the owners of this beautiful property, were the nicest and most gracious people ever. Secondly, the house was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, and so comfortable. It was so easy and relaxing to just stay and explore the property, walk down to the beach, or... More

Bring food, drinks of choice and that's it. Our hosts Raewyn and Grant have built their own paradise in a perfect coastal location. The good thing is they now share it with discerning guests from all parts of the globe. While we live just north of this property, the rawness of the coastline continues to impress. The Guesthouse is fashioned... More
