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.
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!
I only stayed with Naomi for one night on the way to Paihia, but it was one I'll not forget! Both Naomi and Brent were very welcoming and we had a great chat over cups of tea before bed. Their home is clean and cosy, and we slept very comfortably in the zzz room! Breakfast in the morning was delicious (especially Brent's homemade bread) and got us set up for the rest of our journey, along with some helpful tips on activities for us to do on our trip. Thank you for having us Naomi and Brent!
