Lovely villa and excellent accomodation in the suite. Great to have room opening onto the deck and spa pool. Hosts were very friendly. Only improvement that could be made is the standard and variety of the breakfasts. We chose to have dinner with the hosts one night. Although it was a good home-cooked meal, we feel it wss expensive for... More

I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before this trip, and what an impression this lovely place made on me! First of all, Whangarei is a beautiful little town on the coast and so any trip here would be rewarding. But the stay at Kauri Villas was truly unforgettable. My husband and I loved the hospitality -- Pauline... More

Thanks for your fantastic review. We loved having you stay, and our sheep were very grateful for the attention. (So were the steers, even though they were a bit pushier). We look forward to having you stay at Kauri Villas again, when you next come back to NZ. All the best for the new baby. More

We booked through a deal on GrabOne. Whangarei had always been somewhere that we drove through to get further north. Not any more! This area is stunning - beautiful beaches and lots of walking tracks. We will definitely be back to explore some more. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite in the main house. Absolutely perfect for us as a... More

We have just had 3 nights stay in the Magnolia suite at Kauri Villas. It was separate from the main house clean, warm and comfortable but we had no privacy. We didn't have a view from our room but did have one when sitting out in the wee courtyard adjacent to our room. We were also able to utilise the... More

Excellent 2 night stay. First time at Whangarei Heads, the whole area is well worth a visit, most enjoyable. The villas were well appointed, breakfast plentiful and the pool and games room were a real bonus!

Buster and Pauline were the best hosts--informative, friendly and great company, (but not intrusive). Pauline makes top-notch breakfasts (heavenly poached eggs) and we also enjoyed one of her home-cooked dinners. The room was comfortable, beautifully furnished and very private (we stayed in the annex). The location was convenient for several stunning walks and not far from several restaurants. We enjoyed...

Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed hosting you. I can't take all the credit for the poached eggs - some has to go to one of our first guests who was a chef, and gave me instructions. Also credit to our beautiful free range chooks who provide fresh eggs each day. More
