“A very comfortable and relaxing home near the beach in a beautiful village. A lovely little home in which to enjoy a view of the water from the large sun-room, and an even larger deck with a selection of comfortable furniture to relax or dine on. And when the sun's too hot, a large and well designed sun-shade/large umbrella. Wayne and Eileen were most helpful and pleasant and we much appreciated the use of their kayaks which took us to nearby white sandy beaches. Simply put.....Magic! and we highly recommend this home for those who want a relaxing get-away.”
Eileen's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We have recently completed a "non-simultaneous" exchange with Eileen and Wayne in New Zealand. They had our home on Vancouver Island during the glorious summer of 2015 leaving our home clean and loved as was our car. This is what we had expected, since we had stayed in their home earlier in 2015, and the care they take in their home is obvious and makes the whole exchange so much more enjoyable. Sadly we were only able to meet Eileen and Wayne briefly, but we know we will meet again. Thank you Eileen and Wayne for continuing to make HomeForExchanging such an enjoyable experience.”
Where is it?
Situated a short stroll from the Ngunguru Estuary, our home has lovely views to the water. The estuary is perfect for enjoying our kayaks. We have two bedrooms, one with a Queen sized bed and one with two fold away beds. We have a conservatory/sun room as well as a large deck for barbecues and sun-bathing. The kitchen is fully equipped, as is the laundry downstairs - shared with the tenants. Ngunguru itself is a small community with a grocery store, cafe, takeaway shop and large sports complex for golf, tennis, badminton, bowls etc. and a great bar and restaurant. There are beautiful beaches a short drive away and one which is half an hour's walk. The Tutukaka Marina is 4km and it has several excellent restaurants. There are many fabulous walks in the area. All the locals are very friendly and helpful. The city of Whangarei is a 20 minute drive and Auckland 2.5 hours.
