My husband and I had the pleasure of a one night stay at the Guest House recently. It is secluded, and peaceful, with outstanding views from One Tree Point and Marsden Point,to Ngunguru, the Pacific Ocean the Poor Knights Islands and Taiharuru etc. The accommodation is superb with a large sunny deck with BBQ which would be terrific on sunny...

Stupendous is one word that comes to my mind when I try to describe this property. The Cliff house is architecturally placed to maximise cliff top position with expansive Pacific ocean views. We spent a great family weekend together, in early April. It was so comfortable inside that we left only once to visit white sand Ocean beach just 12... More

Wow! We had 2 nights at this little gem for our mini-honeymoon. We stayed at the Guest House. Spectacular. Views, location, tranquility, comfort, furnishing, etc. great spot for exploring the surrounds but also equally great to stay there and soak up the atmosphere. We pre-ordered dinner the first night and it was fantastic - tasty, large portions, and easy to... More

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Guest House for 2 months when I first moved to Whangarei. It is easily, hands down, the most beautiful place I have ever had the pleasure of staying. I am currently typing this review sat on the decking, bathed in the sun, hidden amongst native bush with the most SPECTACULAR view... More

The reviews say it all for this place (Cliff House), it's simply amazing. We could not fault a single thing. We were a group of five adults and there was plenty of space, you could easily fit another two adults very comfortably...more if you want to squeeze a few more in. All you need to think about is food before... More

I was fortunate enough to be recommended to this place. I shared it with great friends of mine. I was astounded when I walked in to the Ara Road Guest House at just how well it was appointed. You could have been mistaken for staying in a 5 star luxury hotel, right down to the lovely linen bath robes that... More

We stayed here in early March for a wedding. We stayed in The Barn. Friends of ours stayed in The Cliff House so we were only a short walk away when we wanted to catch up. The Barn provided ample room for the 3 couples that stayed there, as well as being clean, comfortable and well stocked. The Barn also... More

We recently stayed here at the Cliff House for our Daughters wedding and it was amazing. The home is stunning and a great place for a big family like us.
