Having stayed at several B & B's around New Zealand we found the Kauri Villas extremely good value. The comfortable bed is to dream of and the breakfast was superb. The views from the villas are surreal as is the whole of the Whangarei Heads area. We highly reccommend this establishment and look forward to receiving the wonderful hospitality from...

Lovely Villa high on the hill overlooking the bay. Fantastic scenery. Comfortable rooms of a high standard and the hostess Pauline was friendly and welcoming from arrival to departure. Breakfast was excellent. Spa, swimming pool and games room kept us occupied when not out on bush walks or beach. Would recommend a stay at Kauri Villas.

Fabulous accommodation, great food, friendly host. We had a lovely stay atop the hill over looking the beautiful Parau Bay. Swimming in the pool and enjoying the sunset we would highly recommend this location, especially if travelling with another couple or children. Thank you Pauline, we will be back!

Great find late on a road trip around Whangarei Heads very quite, peaceful setting and great hosts. As we had not preplanned we took the small room not in the main house but it was suitable for our one night stay.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for 3 nights, one more than planned due to the extreme weather over New Year. Pauline and Buster were wonderful hosts and that together with the house and grounds made for a very comfortable and restful stay.

My partner, sons and I had a lovely stay while travelling North. The style, appearance and location of the place is great and our hosts were friendly and accommodating. It is the right distance from town to feel the country & coastal atmosphere after a scenic drive yet not be too far away at all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kauri Villas, centrally located between Whangarei township and Whangarei Heads, allows travellers the perfect home base for exploring the countless bays, beaches and scenic vistas in the Northland region. – Truly the jewel in the crown of Northland. The original villa was built as a farmhouse in 1870. A second 1920’s villa was moved onsite, and joined to the original farmhouse. Featuring traditional kauri wooden floors and beams, 12′ ceilings, and wrap around verandas echoing the charm of a bygone era, all while offering breathtaking views overlooking Parua Bay, the surrounding countryside and the picturesque Poor Knights Islands. After a day of adventuring, guests will want to relax by the pool, explore our twelve acres including a 1 km loop track through beautiful native bush, past waterfalls, leading down to the Kohinui stream, or ease tired muscles in our jacuzzi spa pool all while taking in the breathtaking views. In the evening, pop down to the Parua Bay Tavern just 2km away, for great food from the famous classic menu. Or allow your hostesses to use their culinary skills to create a home cooked meal especially for you. The Colonial Suite provides two spacious bedrooms, each with large picture windows overlooking the bay, a bathroom with an old fashioned claw foot bath, modern shower, luxurious heated towel rail and underfloor heating. Guests staying here will also appreciate their own living area, the perfect place to cozy up with a book and a cup of tea. The Magnolia suite is well suited to families, with two adjoining bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom. The large living area has a pianola, and a toy corner for the children. Enjoy watching a movie on the large screen TV from our selection of DVD’s. Larger groups will appreciate our self contained Kohinui lodge. The lodge features four bedrooms, a large central living area with TV, DVD, oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. With 3 bathrooms and 4 toilets, what more could you want? Our games room provides a place to gather in the evening or on rainy days. With table tennis, pool table, foosball and darts as well as a CD player and a large selection of retro CD’s to choose from. ... more   less
