“What a fabulous place!”
Reviewed January 21, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Whangarei is an excellent base for visiting the Bay of Islands, a two hour scenic drive from here. Birchgrove Cottage is a beautiful self contained cottage in the garden of the owners' house. It has been thoughtfully created to give every possible comfort to guests. It really is the most amazing value and we shall be sorry to leave.

“Great Value, High Quality & Outstanding Service”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

You kind of know when you find a "great weekend rental" when every detail is just perfect.
We also felt sincerity in the manager's comments, with genuine care and advice on where to go for dinner etc.
We were also recommended to take a look at the local golf course (right next door) and the local golf pro was very helpful too.
The room was very comfortable and extremely clean and we slept like babies. And it's really close to the shops and attractions of Whangarei too.
My previous experience at B&B's have been average, until now and I highly recommend Birchgrove to anyone who is traveling to the Whangarei region and is looking for a value option with great quality and service....you won't regret it!

“Home away from home”

Birch grove Cottage is excellent value for money. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are both well appointed. The living area is spacious. The biggest surprise was the way that the kitchen cupboards and the fridge were generously stocked. We had fresh bread, milk, yogurts, jams and fruit. Unusually, the supplies included glad wrap, baking paper, kitchen towel and plenty of cooking equipment. There were lots of nice towels provided too. The view from the living area is stunning. This is a gorgeous property. Some people who like their privacy might not enjoy the owners house being so close but our hosts were so lovely and friendly that it did not bother us.

Perfect location not too far from town, yet far enough to be blissfully quiet. The cottage is thoroughly equipped, everything you need to just relax. Also noteworthy the fit out and furnishings are fantastic and give each room a modern, yet relaxed feel.

I will most certainly stay here again, best value accommodation of my entire trip.

We stayed three nights in this beautiful very well equipped cottage with gorgeous views of the owners garden and surrounding countryside.
The inclusion of a breakfast was ideal before setting off on our daily tours of the area.
Would highly recommend this property.

“Comfortable convenient base for a week in Northland”
Reviewed November 10, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Very clean, very comfortable, made to feel very welcome.
This is a well laid out one bedroom cottage that we used as a base for a week in Northland. It had everything we needed, and the hosts were friendly and hospitable.
