Brent & Naomi have been superb hosts. They have exceeded all expectations and frequently went above and beyond the call of duty when my wife Louise arrived in Whangarei. We are moving to New Zealand and Louise stayed with them whilst starting her new job. Brent and Naomi took great care of her and provided lots of useful tips and advice to help her find her way around the locality. They even helped her by recommending a therapist when Louise had a problem with her back. The accommodation is of a high quality and could not have been better. If everyone in New Zealand is as helpful we will not be short of friends in Whangarei.
Really nice room and friendly hosts. They provided a warm environment and sent us off with a nice breakfast. Would reccomend!
Naomi was great at keeping touch with me, answering questions and even checking the local i site when I asked her about a possible activity in Whangarei. Naomi and Brent are very accommodating. The room was quiet and clean. Naomi kindly picked me up at the airport (for a small fee) and also drove me two places, since it was Sunday and the local buses were not available. (Taxi from their home to town is about $15). There is a reason they have so many great reviews -- they are kind and caring, serve great homemade bread for breakfast(!), and care about their airbnb guests.
Hosts were very responsive and efficient in their communication. Home and room were exactly as described, provided helpful self-serve breakfast. Had a very good experience and would stay again.
The room was clean. The area was very calm. We slept well. Good to stay if you want to sleep well during the night.
Brent and Naomi were wonderful hosts! They were friendly and easy to visit with. It was a very relaxed environment and The Zzzz Room was very comfortable and cozy and allowed for a really good sleep. The breakfast they provide is definitely a bonus as well. I stayed there 2 nights while touring around Whangarei. I would stay here again!
We really enjoyed our stay at Naomi and Brent's house in Whangarei. They are a truly lovely couple and the room was everything we expected it would be. Thanks a lot for your hospitality, guys!
