The Annex is an older building that was a sleepout. It has two bedrooms and a living/ dining area, with a wood fire, sink, fridge, hot plate and microwave. There is a small shower room and separate toilet. It is situated on a farmlet with harbour views, 7km south of the city centre , one hundred metres up an unsealed driveway off State Highway One. This is a busy main road, so there can be road noise. It is a working farmlet, our hens free range and our trees drop leaves and small branches.

The space
There is NOT a full kitchen - only a fridge, hot plate, microwave, kettle and toaster. Tea, coffee, cup of soup , cereals, bread, butter and condiments are included. The living area has a TV and DVD player with some DVD's. There are plenty of books to read. I have made sure the beds are really comfortable. You are totally private, if that is your wish. The free WiFi code is in the Information booklet if you have a laptop. You may use our washing machine or dryer for no charge.

Where you’ll be

Whangarei,, Northland., New Zealand

We are in a semi rural area with only a few houses around us. Whangarei CBD is 7 kms from us and has many good cafes and restaurants which you will find in our information folder. There are a number of good walks and cycle tracks and many parks. The sub tropical Quarry garden is worth a visit and there is an Arts Quarry as well. The lookout on Parihaka gives you views across the city. There is a picturesque drive along the harbour's edge out to Ocean Beach and there is a nice cafe towards the end of it. About 20 min south is the historical Scottish settlement of Waipu with its small museum. An hour SW is the unique Kauri museum and the Bay of Islands is only about 40min north of us. We have numerous beaches both harbour and ocean within half an hour's drive all around us and there is the famous deep sea fishing base at Tutukaka about 40 min drive NE of us.

During your stay

We are happy for you to join us in the evening and tend to be around the place most of the time. We know a lot about Northland and are delighted to share this with you. However, if you prefer to be totally private that's fine.
