Kauri Nest B & B opened in April 2011.

You will be surprised with the feeling of being in a lovely spacious villa in the countryside; yet you can walk 7 -10 minutes along & over the Hatea River past the marina to the town basin with its 5 cafes, art galleries, clock museum, park and shops, from there only 3-5 minutes to CBD and shopping centres, movie theatre complex, banks .

Kauri Nest is on the road to Whangarei airport (10 min drive), Whangarei Heads, Parua Bay, golf course, Abby caves and many other attractions only minutes away.
