Dear Wendy and Urbi, we enjoyed your placed very much, from everything, great maintenance of the place - real European stile (which you don't often see in NZ) great view from all rooms, comfort living room (I wish we had these couches at home) everything to the last detail is great. the breakfast was excellent, we liked it so much that we stayed for another night.. the kids just loved the place, great garden. I strongly recommend to every family and couples that travel in that area to visit Wendy and Urbi, you will not regret !!

שלום למי שהגיע לאתר, אנחנו ביקרנו אצל וונדי ואורבי באפריל 2010 , אנחנו משפחה עם 3 ילדים קטנים, ומאד נהננו, המחיר סביר ומקבלים יחידת דיור מדהימה !! הכל נראה כמו חדש למרות שרץ כבר 3 שנים, כורסאות אמריקן קומפורט , משחקים בארון, אורבי הכין סט די וי די עם כל הסרטים שצולמו בניו זילנד, פשוט תענוג, מטבח מאובזר ונקי, ציוד מלא, תנור כיריים, פשוט הכל. החדרים נעימים ונקיים, ריהוט חדש, מצעים מכותנה, תהנו. אהה הנוף לא תאמינו עד שתגיעו.
מאד ממולץ

Even before we arrived, Wendy sent us super information on sites and restaurants between Auckland and Whangarei for the trip. We chose Whangarei partly for its proximity to North Island attractions and partly because it was not in the Bay of Islands. Little did we realize how much Whangarei has to offer itself! We did visit and highly recommend Tutukaka, but Wendy and Urbi steered us to some fabulous walks and locations in Whangarei itself. Whangarei Heads has great walks, views and Ocean Beach is spectacular. We spent 3 days here and needed much more. The apartment was well equipped, very comfortable and quiet, but located a short drive outside the main business district. A restaurant dinner would require a car. Breakfast with Urbi and Wendy was delicious and gave us a great opportunity to plan our activities using some of their excellent local knowledge. We would never have attempted the Old Russell Road without them!

We made a reservation for the upstairs king room, but when we arrived Wendy was waiting for us with the wonderful surpise that we could dispose over the whole apartment downstairs ! It was a lovely and comfortable apartment, with everything you need. We loved the sleeping room (it's oh so quiet...) and were jealous of the 'touchy lamps' :-)
Unfortunately Wendy and Urbi had guests that day, so we couldn't chat enough with them, but still they gave us lots of informations, that were a great help.
It was one of our favourite B&B's, and the hospitality was just great !
We didn't like to move on, but we had to... Definitely would stay here again (and even longer then one night).

This was one of the best B & B's we stayed in on our trip to New Zealand. It was good to have plenty of space to spread out. Wendy & Urbi gave good recommendations on restaurants and places to visit. They were also good enough to drive us to the A Deco restaurant (Highly recommended restaurant). Would certainly stay here again.

My friend and I stayed in the apartment for two nights this January just gone and had an absolutely lovely time. Wendy and Urbi are so friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge - we saw a few fantastic sights on their recommendation that we would have missed otherwise. The accommodation is clean and very cosy and comfortable, everything you could possibly want is there at your disposal, including a great DVD library. Wendy's breakfasts and Urbi's rocket fuel coffee are definitely not to be missed!

When you travel for 30 + hours from the UK to NZ and travel another 2-3 hrs from AKL Intl airport, the Whangarei Views Bed & Breakfast was a very welcome sight. Even more so, when Wendy and Urbi came out to the driveway to meet us and welcome us. This was our first time to NZ and a great introduction to Kiwi hosptiality. We had freshly brewed coffee on arrival and got our bearings and extra inside information on the area from Wendy and Urbi, whilst sitting in the wonderful lounge with panoramic views of the town below and surrounding countryside vista. On both evenings and mornings we also were given extra advice on what to do/see in the area and further afield. Breakfasts were wonderful and recommend a two day stay for those flying in from long haul, because it took us a lot longer than expected to get used to the jet lag. The warm bedroom, comfy big bed and hot and powerful power shower helped to ease the jet lag too. The breakfasts on both days, certainly set us up for the day, pikelets (mini pancakes) were made to order, as was the freshly ground coffee, fresh fruits and youghurts and also ask Wendy for a copy of the receipe for the home made muesli, scrumptious (Ive made a number of batches since returning to the UK). Wendy and Urbi also gave us extra driving notes and tips for the area and for our other travel destinations throughout the North and South island. As we were starting out on our hols, we did not avail of the drying room or washing machine/dryer that was on site for guests use also. We certainly enjoyed our stay with Wendy and Urbi. We would highly recommend Whangarei Views to any other travellers intending to use Whangarei as a base to travel from for their knowledgable hosts, great breakfasts, wonderful surroundings and just a great introduction to New Zealand hospitality. Thanks also to the previous guests who listed their recommendations onto Tripadvisor as this is why we chose to stay with Wendy and Urbi in the first place !
