  • Ideal Home For A Week in Wellington!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Kainui Heights. It gave us a perfect "jumping off site" for our daily adventures and it was relaxing to come home to in the evening. Of course the view from the master bedroom thrilled us. We found it easy to navigate the bus lines and Kainui Heights was an ideal home for our week stay in Wellington."

  • RONGOTAI - my favourite place in the world

    "Rongotai is my favourite spot on the planet. As a cosmopolitan child of the North, I had the luxury of growing up under Northland skies alongside East Coast beaches. Rongotai gives me the opportunity to be once again enchanted by both. The night skies, in particular, give me that sense of being totally encompassed by the immense expanse of the star studded sky, punctuated by the reliable blink of the Manganui Harbour entrance lighthouse (a sensation akin to night sailing). Another enchanting feature of Rongotai is the scope of panorama which includes views of the sun as it rises above the pastoral landscape - bucolic scenes of cattle on green hills - in the East and sets at dusk over the Manganui harbour entrance. Apart from the powerful and exquisite scenery I enjoy the minimalist beauty of the house, complete with Phillipe Starke fittings, which unobtrusively complements its surroundings. The sensation on arrival is one of simple surrender to and total immersion in nature at its very best. Alas for me its hard not to wax lyrical as Rongotai exemplifies the environment in all its magnificent splendour – there’s simply no place I’d rather be."

  • A Real Gem

    "We had a lovely week here on our visit from England. The accommodation is very spacious and there was plenty of space for four adults and two small children. The aspect from the garden is glorious with views of the sea but shade from the trees if needed. The house has real character and is very comfortable. We had a family party on our last night with four more adults joining us which worked really well. We would really recommend it."

  • Like staying at a friend's house

    "I happily recommend this modern, clean and well-equipped property. It felt like I had taken over a friend's apartment for a week, because everything you could want in a vacation rental is here. Good computer connection, well equiped kitchen with all the extras provided to make a good meal (spices, flour, oil, etc.), comfortable bed, roomy shower. Very nice outdoor area too, with barbeque and outdoor table set. Excellent and friendly communications with the owner. A short walk to the bus into central Auckland (no transfers required, about 1 hour), or else bus and ferry. Howich itself a nice little village with decent restaurants, and a supermarket less than five minutes walk away."
