"Your place is Heaven on a Stick" - "The best weekend-away in my life". Your Queen Double room is in a brand new one-level home on a superb site overlooking the magnificent Whangaroa Harbour in northern New Zealand. Extinct volcanic dome of St Paul directly behind the house and wrap-around views of the natural harbour.
"Lots of great food, sunshine, hospitality, fishing, harbour exploring; the views from your house are the best in the world!"- Jo & Steve.
Your room is in its own wing of the home and is very welcoming in its expensive fittings. Privacy is assured. Breakfast included (healthy Continental).

The house lies 82 metres (300 feet) above sea level yet it is just 1.2 kms to two local haunts: the Pub & the Club, with refreshments & restaurants; also same distance to boat-launching ramp & a small general store. A proper supermarket is in Kaeo, 10kms away, open 7 days. Ample parking at and near the house.
A paradise for nature and birds: the property is 15 hectares in size and is all regenerating native vegetation, sloping down to the harbourside.
All appliances are best quality; library & games provided.
A set of luxury Lujo loungers for you for sunbathing. Boule / Petanque set.
Activities could include: fishing both Big Game & recreational; kayaking or boating on harbour or open ocean; walking DOC tracks to top of St Paul's Rock 213masl, behind house; or to Lane's Cove Hut on West Arm of harbour (2 hours one way); or driving to super beaches like family-friendly Tauranga Bay (15mins) or surfing beach Taupo Bay (40mins). Or: doing as little as possible; you deserve it!
Situated halfway between Paihia & Kaitaia (both 45mins drive) it is the perfect hub for trips in all directions. Just 30mins drive to Kerikeri/airport.
Bird species often seen feeding on lawn: Californian quail, pukeko swamp hen, white-faced herons, ring-necked pheasants, spur-winged plover, NZ pipit, blackbirds; birds often seen feeding in native trees metres from house: fantails, silver eyes, tui, chaffinch, myna, Eastern rosella parrot, NZ kingfisher. Zeiss binoculars and a bird guidebook available for your in-house stay. 2 Bird feeding tables set up, and Bird bath.
Walks starting from Prima a Situ: 20mins to top of St Paul's Rock; 10mins down to harbourside; then 2000 steps =1.4kms from Donkeyman's Nest to Boyd Gallery & General Store (all flat along waterside).
Two really great walks a short way away: the 2 hour Wairakau Walk to Lane Cove; and the 1 hour Mahinepua Peninsula Walk.

"It has been so wonderful here, the scenery, the peace & the warm hospitality"- Lorrie & Ken; Auckland.
Guests have full open access to the wrap-around decks with absolutely fabulous views; also to the kitchen and TV lounge which is shared with me. Very comfy outdoor loungers, tables & chairs; and gas BBQ.
Property has private access to water by footpath to Ota Landing 900metres from Prima a Situ; 2 kayaks at landing; swimming, fishing, picking rock oysters, picnicking.

While guests are in their own wing (separated from owner's wing by an open-to-the-sky atrium) then I leave them their space; but we may meet on the decks or in the kitchen/lounge. You'll have your privacy in this house, no worries. But also: if you want to know more about the area, things to see or do etc. etc. you are more than welcome to ask me. You will always have my mobile telephone number should a problem arise.
I am often away working and leave the house to my guests.
"Stunning views ranging from morning mists lifting, to sunrises to sunsets, to full moon rising, to....! Fantastic".- Deb & Keith.

This is the most special place in New Zealand; I have read in a guide book that it is the most beautiful natural harbour in the Southern Hemisphere; it is totally unspoilt and mostly uninhabited, a playground for sailors and fishermen and families.
30 minutes drive to Kauri Cliffs; 45 mins to Carrington Resort.
Meals: either use the in-house Miele kitchen, or: the BBQ outside, or: the cafes in the local Pub or Club, or: drive 10mins to the licensed Indian restnt in Kaeo, or: drive 45mins to the Thai restnt & the famous FishnChips shop in Mangonui. Try the Truckers breakfast in Kaeo!- at Donna's Madhatter's Cafe.

Situated halfway between the touristy Bay of Islands/Paihia and the long, lonely Ninety Mile Beach (both 45mins drive) it is the perfect hub for trips in all directions. Just 30mins drive to Kerikeri, the business/shopping centre of the Bay of Islands.
Weekend Break: Perfect!- fly to Kerikeri/Bay of Islands Airport & there Hire a car, then drive 30mins to Prima a Situ; this means just 1.5hrs Akld to Prima a Situ total travel time!
Only once a day does a public bus connect with Kaeo, 10kms from Whangaroa; your own vehicle is pretty much necessary; plenty of safe private parking space, for cars & boats.

One couple at a time in the ensuite Queen bedroom; but if there are 3 or 4 of you (family/friends) and you don't mind sharing the ensuite, then you can also use the second, adjoining Queen bedroom 'Hopekako' as well; all guest rooms and WC etc lockable and with separate private entries.
Nota Bene: Owner Terry has another accommodation 'La Grange' on the same property, offering a quite different experience; check it out!
The nearest supermarket is the 4-Square in Kaeo, 10kms; open 7 days.

Whangaroa, Nouvelle-Zélande · Membre depuis août 2012

I would love to welcome you to my home, for me the most beautiful place in the world. I have been to many places and looked after many travellers as a tour manager for many years.
I love travelling myself and totally understand people who do too!
I will give you all the privacy you want and need, but am here to offer advice if you have any questions. And if you'd like to chat, you are welcome to do so!

If you have time and want to read more about me and my experiences, here I go!
Who am I?
Pakeha, European New Zealander, Kiwi, male, baby-boomer; educated in the Wairarapa (“land of the shining waters”) and at Auckland and Wellington Universities; a Catholic monk for several years.
Overland to Munich via the “Hippy Trail” in 1972; seven Oktoberfests later I left Bavaria, regretfully. Besides indulging in beer, I also taught English in a Hauptschule and studied Philosophy of Science at Ludwig-Maximilian University.
Became a “Courier” and began to lead bus tours throughout Europe. Skied all over the Northern Alps; one season as a ski-rep in Liechtenstein. At a Belgian Beerfest (for a change) a guy gave me cheek in an elevator, I cheeked him back and then he walloped me on the chin. Next day I heard he was a UK Post Office robber on parole (Roger Daltrey starred in the movie “McVicar” -I didn’t).
More travelling: three times hitch-hiked through the Sahara; opened an African handicraft outlet called “Le Gris-Gris” in Weggis, Switzerland; journeyed the Trans-Siberian three times also.
In-between travels was butler for the Royal family, at Ayton Castle in Scotland; a roof-worker in Munich; a theatre bar attendant in London; a silver-service waiter at Vierjahreszeiten Hotel in Munich; but then the road called again.
By cruise ship to Antarctica and to Spitzbergen in the Arctic; also cruised the Mediterranean, the Horn of Africa, the Nile; up the Amazon but then by motorised canoe. Up the Rejang River (Borneo) for Dayak Day and to purchase a Raphia ikate, a proud possession these days.
Lived for nine months in Taipei and learnt to love Chinese; spent a total of two years in the Republic of China and two tours of Tibet. Ran the Great Wall and was (almost) held hostage in Canton. Was a non-paying guest of the “Bangkok Hilton” (Immigration Police Prison)(Bangkok, Thailand) for a day (ironically it was 4 July).
Travel called once more and off to South Africa and Namibia I went; to Tahiti and Easter Island; to all the other usual suspects. One of the greatest wonders of our world is the Galapagos Islands group; also the Grand Canyon, which I walked and loved.
Back in New Zealand off and on: I climbed our iconic mountains except one or more; abseiled the second deepest tomo in the world (Harwood’s Hole); drove the 90 Mile Beach many times; sailed the Bay of Islands; tramped Stewart Island; drove every byway; let the beauty sink in.
Drove all over the USA and across Canada; biked the Burgundian Canal Towpath; walked Hadrian’s Wall; around Land’s End in UK; biked over half of Bavaria; and finally I am still adding things-to-do to my bucket-list. What a beautiful world!
But you’ll still hear me declaring that where I am now (Whangaroa) is the most beautiful place in the world and my land is, by all accounts, the most beautiful land on this natural harbour. Come Enjoy! You’ll be made very Welcome!
