About our home

Family friendly four bedroom home in the sunny Bay of Islands. Our home is centrally located for access to Kerikeri, Paihia, Waitangi and the bay. Get out and about and see what Northland has to offer- try the coast to coast cycleway, beautiful walks, the Packhouse Market, a day on the water- then return to your own comfortable home complete with pool and spa.

Our home boasts 4 bedrooms; the master with ensuite being located at one end of the house and 3 additional bedrooms, a full bathroom and family room at the other. This is our family home, although our children have flown the nest, so is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. This includes board games, books, pool toys and internet.

Outdoor, next to the pool, is a large covered deck with full outdoor dining table and outdoor lounge. We love spending time with our family out here and I’m sure you will too.


More about us

  1. Hi! I’m Megan and my husband is Phil. I am a High School Economics and Business teacher while my husband has his own IT business.

  2. As our 3 children have flown the nest, we are enjoying making the most of the opportunity to travel before grandchildren arrive. Over the past couple of years we have enjoyed house swaps within New Zealand and have decided to spread our wings a bit more.

  3. We are keen hikers, cycle trail riders and really enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places. We love our home in the Bay of Islands and are sure you will enjoy the area too. We are clean, tidy and will treat your home respectfully.
