Houhora Country Retreat

Max Guests

About this Holiday House

A great place to relax and unwind in the beautiful countryside. Comfortable, spacious and an easy distance to the main highway for adventuring and exploring the Far Far North. Our home has 3 Bedrooms: Master Bedroom with Super King Bed and Ensuite. Second Bedroom with Queen Bed. Third Bedroom with 2 Single Beds. The Main Bathroom is a generous size and has a bath. We provide Full Linen. The internal access garage has space for one car and there is plenty of room to park and turn in the driveway. There is 3 acres of reasonably flat lawn which is wonderful for walking around or playing games on. We are in the process of regenerating areas of native manuka and kanuka (tea tree) on the property, which we ask guests to admire, but not touch. There is very good mobile coverage on the property should you wish to bring your own devices. As we choose to provide a place of retreat and country relaxation, we do not provide wifi, television or a microwave. We highly recommend the star gazing! We also recommend exploring the local beaches, surfing, fishing, dune boarding, horse riding, a day trip to Cape Reinga and a visit to the Gum Diggers Park. Our well stocked Four Square, local shops, take aways and restaurant are 3-5 minutes' drive away, as is the Pukenui Wharf, local doctors' and Rubbish/Recycling Station. The drinking water is delicious. We ask guests to use water conservatively as we are on rain water supply. Our Septic System uses a biological treatment process which must be used conscientiously. We provide eco friendly soaps and cleaning products as our system will not tolerate any harsh ingredients such as bleaches and anti bacterial agents. Guests are asked to leave the house and property clean and tidy, dishes and household items put away neatly, surfaces wiped down. Our housekeeper takes care of the linen and general cleaning at no extra charge provided everything is in good order. Special Conditions: $200 Bond Required upon Booking. No smoking or Pets Allowed. No parties. Cancellations: Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to check in date are fully refunded, minus a booking fee of $50. Cancellations made within 14 days of check in date are non-refundable. We love our home and enjoy knowing that others are enjoying it too when we can’t be here. We hope you have a wonderful time in the Far Far North. Please enquire.

Our group absolutely enjoyed our stay here. It was much needed and a great place to get away for those always stuck in the city. Shops & Attractions are close by. The Burger Bus was a hit! The weather was not the best, but all the board games provided kept us well entertained. We highly recommend this accomodation and will definitely be staying here again. Thank you
