Welcome to The Base Inn!
We have created a cosy, intimate space in our fully detached, self contained cabin. Space is at a premium but what it lacks in space, it makes up for in comfort with a fabulous bed, great shower, Netflix, high speed wifi and a selection of cereals, teas and coffees for your consumption :).
We please ask that if you do book in to stay with us, that you read the ‘check in’ and ‘directions’ section for clear instructions as we don’t have a visable letterbox!!!

Convenient to town centre (we walked). Lite breakfast (choice of cereals and milk) is a nice perk. Genna met us and was responsive to questions. It was great to have multiple places to hang things. Mount Parihaka Lookout was just 5 minutes away.

My daughter and I came to Whangarei for a quick visit and the Base Inn was perfect for us. It was comfortable and cozy with great amenities. The location was very convenient to downtown and the waterfront. We’d definitely stay again!

This little cottage is great for a stay in Whangarei. The granola and coffee selection were a nice touch! The place is private and easily accessible. Highly recommended.

Interaction with guests
As our cabin is detached from the house, you will have your own space and privacy. We love welcoming our guests when they arrive and are always up for a cuppa, but if we are out or you are arriving late in the evening, we have a lockbox where the key is and a code will be sent…
