  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe live in a rural area, 15 minutes from Whangarei / Kamo. We are renovating an old cottage on our property to make into a bed and breakfast (air bnb) with a studio to host visiting artists. We can use any skills and what you don't know we will show you!
    We have free wi-fi and usually a double room with en-suite, depending if we have other guests, if its being used you'll have to share the main bathroom. But the cottage we are renovating will be ready soon to at least sleep in, before it becomes a bnb. Just contact/call up and ask.
