Piwakawaka Garden Homestay

Waipu, Northland

Piwakawaka Garden is a developing 2-acre property. It is rural, quiet and private. We have two bedrooms available, one with a queen bed and the other a double. Your booking secures the use of both rooms so you will only share the bathroom facilities with those you are travelling with.

The Queen room has an outlook over the property and out to the sea and islands, it gets the morning sun. The double room gets the afternoon sun and looks out over the garden. The bathroom has a bath, separate shower, heated towel rail and the separate toilet has its own basin.

Guests will share the living, kitchen, dining areas and expansive deck with Glenn and Steve the owners. You are free to wander the property and sample fruit, berries and nuts as in season. We enjoy sharing food and wine and can offer a garden wine and dine experience on request. The immediate area around the house, Vegetable gardens and the deck are clothing optional.

We are situated 7km from Waipu in the hills towards Waipu Caves. It is 7km to Uretiti Beach, the nicest gay friendly nudist beach, several km long, in northland.  The property is 35km from Whangarei, with all it has to offer, with a wonderful Town Basin with the Hundertwasser centre,  yachts, cafes and craft shops. There are an increasing number of eateries in the Bream Bay location. In Waipu there is an international award-winning Micro-brewery & Pizza Restaurant, an Indian and Thai restaurant, with additional restaurants close by. The property is called Piwakawaka Gardens after the abundance of bird life.

About us
