Truly incredible place to stay, even during winter! With breathtaking scenic views, and even more amazing hosts, Anna, Brian and Stella made our stay very comfortable! It was a home away from home and we can’t wait to visit again!
A beautiful property, super facilities with excellent local provisions provided by hosts - in our stay wine, cake, bread for toast, honey & milk. Our family loved the pool and tennis court (although to say we played tennis is stretching it a lot!) the local beach is quiet with beautiful turquoise waters (although the sand is taupe coloured which I guess is common in NZ). We also visited the nearby cheese shop and local winery cellar door which we're excellent too. We'd love to return & would recommend.!
Once you fly in First Class, you can't go back to Coach. But after you fly on a private jet, even First Class seems like a commodity. That's analogous to Te Muri Ridge--once you stay here, even the nicest resorts will seem like a commodity.
It was amazing how many thoughtful details had been care for in designing and equipping the Barn. To call it a barn really understates the accommodations--its GQ (Guest Quarters) with a bedroom, kitchen, breakfast area and living space. The GQ has a private deck with grill and dining table, and there's an outdoor patio area with fireplace that's stocked for an evening fire under the stars. This B&B also has a spa tub, private infinity pool and a tennis court. And I'll mention the indoor parking because that was really convenient.
Te Muri Ridge is a long way from the airport, so we hired an Uber the first night to get there safely and directly. The location in the Mahurangi national park is a bit remote, but that remoteness is the key to stunning views, access to the water and wildlife. When we rented a car to explore the north end of the island and to drive to the west coast, it was really convenient to be out of town when we started.
We learned to press coffee on this trip and found that having a kitchen allowed us to buy the food and drinks that we wanted, grill steak and fish to our liking, and enjoy the quiet beauty each evening brought. Brian and Anna are such gracious hosts--thanks for showing us some sites in Auckland and saving us another Uber expense.
We only had 1 night here which was definitely not long enough, if you are looking for peace and tranquility, luxury accomodation with all the finishing touches then look no further. This is an amazing place, very private with use of the spa and swimming pool which is divine.
Own patio area which has an open fire and a tennis court.
Beautiful sea and country views and their little dog Stella who wanders up to say hello is so cute.
Great base for exploring the area with an array of beautiful beaches and walks.
You need to look no furtther. All the comments onTe Muri are very true.
Anna & Brian really care about you and your stay, their kidness have no match. We haven´t been treated so nice. They are very generous on sharing this incredible place with the rest of us.
The barn is excelent....you won't believe the views from it!!!
Lots and lots of places nearby to visit and enjoy. If you are thinking on staying a week or less, you will not be wanting to leave.
We stay 15 days and every one of them was a blast. We´ve had one of the best family vacations ever.
We can´t wait to visit them again and highly recommend to anyone to stay Te Muri.
