Come and soak up the atmosphere
that is Kauri Villas, the perfect location
for rest and relaxation.

Kauri Villas, centrally located between Whangarei township and Whangarei Heads, allows travellers the perfect home base for exploring the countless bays, beaches and scenic vistas in the Northland region. – Truly the jewel in the crown of Northland.

The original villa was built as a farmhouse in 1870.  A second 1920’s villa was moved onsite, and joined to the original farmhouse.   Featuring traditional kauri wooden floors and beams, 12′ ceilings, and wrap around verandas echoing the charm of a bygone era, all while offering breathtaking views overlooking Parua Bay, the surrounding countryside and the picturesque Poor Knights Islands.

After a day of adventuring, guests will want to relax by the pool, explore our twelve acres including a 1 km loop track through beautiful native bush, past waterfalls, leading down to the Kohinui stream, or ease tired muscles in our jacuzzi spa pool all while taking in the breathtaking views.

In the evening, pop down to the local Parua Bay Tavern just 2km away, for great food from the famous classic menu.

Know better. Book better. Go better.
