We came across this accomodation because of rather annoying reasons: Our rented mobile home had a breakdown right after picking it up in Auckland. So while having all these troubles with our vehicle we got to stay with Terri & Warwick on short-term. The house and its surroundings seemed just like a dream to us. We were warmly welcomed and...

Friendly hosts, fantastic house and grounds and room in a frenchy theme, a short drive from the seaside. Would have been nice for us to stay longer. Worst thing is the auckland traffic, which is not their fault!

The Ambers is located in a lovely setting surrounded by olives trees and tranquil gardens. Terri is an amazing host (same as her two lovely cats Lulu and Louie), and has given us lots of useful information planning our trips. Breakfast was a feast and included with juice/ tea and coffee, fresh fruits, yogurt, eggs on toasts, bacon, hash brown... More

This B&B is a cut above the rest. Beautifully styled rooms. Located just out in the northern suburbs of Auckland but you feel like you are out in the country. The breakfast is a feast with hot cross buns offered to us as well as an enormous cooked English breakfast when we stayed. The house is very regal situated at... More

We found The Ambers quite by accident and at the last minute they were able to accommodate us. So glad they could. The accommodation is beautiful and luxurious with the rooms spacious and clean. The old world charm and elegance of this beautiful place surrounded by immaculate gardens is memorable. Breakfast was amazingly scrumptious! The hosts are lovely and helpful.... More

We stayed one night and had a very pleasant stay. The owners were helpful and gave us a light dinner for a modest extra charge, which was just what we wanted after our day's driving. Breakfast was included and was ample.

This place is an absolute gem - as soon as one turns down the tree-lined driveway it is as if one leaves NZ and arrives in France. We have stayed three times in the "gite" - the first for our wedding night and two anniversaries since. The setting is beautiful and the elegant accommodation is very well thought out, right...

Being in this environs envelopes amazing memories of exquisite experiences and country living in opulence. French provence style home at the end of a long avenue of Amber trees invites you to be there. Designs by Harrowset Hall and the owners exquisite taste give all the senses such satisfaction.

You have beautifully described the mood we've tried to create here in the New Zealand countryside. We have had many people think the house was built a hundred years ago (our best compliment). Many also used the words "understated elegance" to sum up their impressions. It was lovely to meet you and we wish you safe travels in the future!... More
