You will be surprised with the feeling of being in a lovely spacious villa in the countryside; yet you can walk 7 -10 minutes along & over the Hatea River past the marina to the town basin with its 5 cafes, art galleries, clock museum, park and shops, from there only 3-5 minutes to CBD and shopping centres, movie theatre complex, banks . P O., etc.
Kauri Nest is on the road to airport (7 min drive), Whangarei Heads, Parua Bay a golf course, Abby caves and many other attractions only minutes away.

Here you enjoy a warm, stylish and functional stay. The formal lounge and dining areas have a great flow with the dining area leading out onto the deck surrounded by glass balustrade so as not to inhibit your amazing views over the town basin and beyond.

The lounge is enhanced by the period fireplace, polished hard wood flooring, feature ceiling and large view filled original windows. The kitchen is a complimentary mix of new and old and is well appointed with quality appliances. A further living area is next to kitchen.
