Houhora Country Retreat

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 or television but we highly recommend the star gazing! We also recommend exploring the local beaches, surfing, fishing, dune boarding and a day trip to Cape Reinga. 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 bleaches, anti bacterial agents or harsh ingredients. Guests are asked to leave the house and property clean and tidy. 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 hope you have a wonderful time here. Please enquire.

Great communication from the owner throughout the booking process; the house was clean and tidy, it had all the essentials that we needed. Would definitely come back as well as recommend this place to anyone else.
