Woodlands By the Sea
Ranked #24 of 30 Whangarei B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 March 2011

We loved staying at Woodlands. Brian and Sandy were really lovely hosts and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our unfortunately brief (only one night) stay. They let us use the second bedroom (since no one else was staying there) to store our suitcases, so we'd have more space in our somewhat small bedroom. The bathroom was wonderful and spotless, with both a large tub and a stall shower. The toilet is in a separate room from the bath. A continental breakfast is included. In the morning, Brian gave us a wonderful tour of the very elaborate gardens that he and Sandy constantly improve on. Then we sat chatting with Brian over coffee and tea looking out at the view. Sandy had to leave in the early morning unfortunately, so we only saw her the day of our arrival. If you are looking for a very comfortable night and a chance to meet some lovely New Zealanders, this is your place. There are some wonderful walks on the Whangarei peninsula as well as Ocean Beach. It is off the beaten path, which is very nice.
