Kauri Villas is situated in a elevated position with fantastic views. Rooms are very clean and comfortable.We rented the entire lodge for a family function and dinner. We also paid for a daily breakfast, Kauri Villa staff seemed to find breakfast challenging (running out of eggs at breakfast is unacceptable) the second breakfast was left overs from the previous nights...

Kauri Villas is a very high quality bed and breakfast located on an idyllic hilltop farm with stunning views of Whangarei Bay. We had oodles of room with the private run of one wing of the large house, including our own sitting room and two bedrooms. The historic villa is beautifully restored, elegantly furnished and spotless. The friendly and helpful...

It is a quiet and beautiful setting with water views. The inn is run by two very capable sisters who made us feel welcome immediately and helped...

From the moment you come up the driveway to the host greeting it is a fabulous experience. The villa is stunning with charm and history and the views are to die for. Just the usual low key Kiwi unassuming charm, distinction, and breathtaking views. The meal was beautiful all freshly prepared and breakfast complete with homemade spreads. I hadn't even...

We had two families holiday here for a week. The layout of the lodge provides ample privacy for each family while still being in the same location. The managers were very friendly and helpful which assisted in ensuring that we had an enjoyable time. We would recommend this lodge.

The weekend was perfect. We were with great friends surrounded by lovely old world charm, but with modern comforts necessary for a winters' get away. Our host were genuinely welcoming, and exceptionally good cooks. Your kitchen garden is looking good and thanks for letting me feed the wee lamb. He was sweet.
