“A truly amazing location.”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Overlooking the natural harbour of Whangaroa with views from all around the property, this is a very special place. The location, apart from being superb in its own right is an ideal base for discovering the top end of North Island. We stayed for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this part of NZ. Don't miss the drive to Cape Reinga, the fish and chips at Mangonui, and breakfast at the Little Kitchen Cafe, also at Mangonui, along with lots of other highlights too numerous to mention.
The accommodation is extremely well-appointed with every comfort and convenience and most importantly to ourselves, it was spotlessly clean. The lounge/kitchen area is shared with the owner who lives in the other half of the property, but Terry is an extremely affable host and we never found the arrangement to be an issue. In fact our chats with him were a bonus feature of our stay and he was a great source of help and information about the area.
We would definitely book this property again.

“Idyllic view to die for!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

So peaceful, the silence is deafening! This stunning property is situated in a well elevated position above the very beautiful Whangaroa Harbour. The house is about three years old, and has been finished to a high standard with great detail, which Terry designed himself. We had use of the west wing, which has great views from both the bedroom and also from the deck, which is equipped with very comfy bean bags, or the sublime cantilever hammock, which was always a race to occupy! Terry is a very gracious and amiable host who was full of great tourist suggestions, but at the same time was exceedingly respectful of our privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and would highly recommend it for anyone who wanted a truly private and peaceful getaway in an absolutely beautiful part of New Zealand.

“Magnificent, breath taking location....top class accommodation.....wonderful host”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Myself, my partner and a friend stayed for one week January 17 to January 22 2016.....we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this accommodation. The views are spectacular and cover 360 degrees of the beautiful Whangaroa Harbour with all of its ever changing conditions....mist, sunshine, wind, rain....just wonderful. The accommodation itself was first class, bedrooms were spacious, en-suite delightful and the open space kitchen and lounge very modern and well appointed. Windows and doors provided instant access to the fantastic views and cooling breezes as well as a spacious deck to enjoy the view. Our host Terry was wonderful as a source of information for day-trips in the local area.....a very beautiful region with a lot less of the tourist hussle and bussle of Bay of Islands but so very beautiful and laid back....he was friendly, respectful of our space and a very engaging and entertaining at times, someone who has a passion for the area and the people who share what is a unique and very special part of NZ....please, do yourself a favor and stay here!! ....it is a once in a fifetime experience.......nothing like it anywhere in the world....

“A very special place!”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a wonderful four night stay here. The views from the house are spectacular, overlooking what is said to be one of the most beautiful harbours in the world(I would agree).Whether it is watching the rain coming in or the early morning mist rising the views are ever changing. We stayed in the large double ensuite bedroom which was luxurious and very spacious with everything you could need. We loved lounging on the bean bags on the large wrap around deck and cooking in the the lovely large kitchen. Terry the owner was so welcoming and hospitable and great fun. The surrounding area is a must see,beautiful beaches and numerous walks. A real treat is taking a water taxi around the harbour and then spending time on a deserted sandy cove! We really hope to visit again very soon. Thank you Terry for allowing us to share your 'top spot".

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed 24 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The 360 degree views from Terry's house are truly amazing. It was a great place for us to relax on a choice of verandahs taking in the views and reading or eating or sipping wine on large comfy bean bag lounges late into the serenity of the moonlit evenings. No mozzies! The rooms are new, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
This place is very special, as is the host Terry who couldnt be more friendly and willing to share his local knowledge and also the fasinating stories of his travels. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Terry for a truly memorable stay!
