This was the perfect place for us to stay to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Drew and Susie were generous hosts and could not have been more helpful. The setting is magnificent and the accommodation was lovely. We stayed in the lodge, which is furnished with everything you could possibly need, but also had the benefit of Drew's delicious breakfast....

Stayed 3 nights in self-catering unit. Very well appointed! Comfortable, beautiful location, hot tub, friendly pets, gracious hosts and delicious home-made marmalade. What more could you ask for? Recommend for anyone who wants a quiet, peaceful location.

Planned to stay one night and stayed three. Best marmalade jam i have tasted. Very tastefully furnished . Loved the cows, sheep, chooks and Rimi the dog and the two cats. Drew and Susie were the perfect hosts and we were blown away by the spectacular scenery, beaches, walks of the Whangarei area. Majella and Stewart King Portland Australia

A really great spot for meeting up with old friends. Self contained cottage was perfect for our group and we were even allowed to bring the dog. The kids loved feeding the animals and the adults loved the spa! A beautiful view and extremely friendly hosts.A great winter break and would be even better in summer!

Thank you for that; you were most welcome! I should just say that only very well behaved dogs can visit - and only by prior arrangement! This may include a CAT scan (we have two) and a Lab test (from our spayed female 9 year old 'puppy', Rimi !

Drew and Susie are great host and it was a pleasure chatting with them. We loved the place as soon as we arrived as it had such a homey feeling! The surrounding is beautiful. I would like to thank Drew in particular who made my husband a very happy man by taking him up on a flight in the morning.

Thank you for your kind comments! Yes, now I've got my flight instructor's rating it's great fun to be able to take guests up for a trial flight, booked through the flying club. It's really like an introductory flying lesson, where you can take the controls and fly the plane yourself! Only available on fine days!

what a treat, staying in a gorgeous NZ villa in a very underrated area of Northland (better beaches and walking tracks than Bay of Islands in my humble opinion) fantastic views, really friendly and attentive service, good food including delicious home made preserves. I too loved the bushwalk, though I did manage to get a bit lost at one point!...

I realized after staying at Kauri Villas that it was experiences like this that make travel so memorable and meaningful. We learned so much from Drew and Susie about NZ - the culture, people, and the place. We particularly enjoyed the bush tramp on the property and of course the comfortable accommodations, hospitality and great food. The cottage is really...
