Caroline has the warmest of welcomes as you arrive at Drury Homestead ... an 1860s home just moments off Hwy 1 south of Auckland. Just 20 minutes from the airport (take Hwy 20 toward Manakua, then south to the Drury exit) and a quick 35 minutes to downtown ... it is wonderfully placed for exploring the northern quarter of the North Island. All rooms are ultra-cozy and have personalities (and names) of their own, with en suite or dedicated bathrooms and great showers. Breakfast, lovingly prepared in Caroline's spacious kitchen, is a particular treat. South Suffolk sheep graze the edges of the property. We highly recommend this grand B&B and plan to re-visit next March!
