5/5 Excellent

Lovely accommodation in rural location
Craypot Cabin was well-equipped and comfortable. It is in a fabulous rural location, but close to many beautiful Northland beaches and stunning Mt Manaia (well worth the climb). Lisa was a great host - available in her nearby house if you needed her, but otherwise your privacy was respected.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful, friendly and perfectly located
We had a wonderful stay. There was everything you could possibly need inside and the location was great for accessing all the lovely beaches and walks around Whangarei Heads. The hosts were fantastic and so welcoming! We would absolutely love to stay again if we're ever in the area!

5/5 Excellent

The little Beach House
We had to vacate our property due to alterations so we stayed for a month. It's a real cozy little two bedroom house with a good functional kitchen and bathroom. Lounge and diner all very suitable for our stay. The area has plenty on offer. Choice of beaches facing all wind directions ready for your choice of activities. Heaps of walks and tracks at varying difficulty. The little house itself is on a farm in the middle of it all. Lisa (the owner) is a truly superb host, very helpful and flexible. Shops are a short drive away. Had a great time thank you Lisa. Merry X-mass Mike and Sandra
