We look forward to welcoming you as guests in our beautiful home during your stay with us in Whangarei. Our home is a large 100+ year old character villa, which in its past life was well renowned as ‘Chelsea Tea House’. People would come from near and far to enjoy Devonshire teas on the verandah and in the manicured front garden. The house has a relaxed, comfortable decor - with high ceilings, polished native Kauri floors and many architectural features inside and out.
In Feb 2018 Booking.com awarded us with a Guest Review Award for our commitment to exceptional hospitality with a rating of 9.6 out of 10, recognition we are extremely proud of.
In October 2018 we were awarded a Recognition of Excellence award with 10/10 from 93 reviews.
Chelsea House is centrally located to town and just across the road from us is Mair Park - with local bush walks, walking tracks to the Whangarei Falls and the Town Basin - with its cafes, restaurants and art shops.
Whangarei has it's own Kiwi House with two resident Kiwi. The Quarry Gardens are world class, built by volunteers in an old Quarry and the busy Quail Cafe in the Quarry does a good coffee. Visit the Historical Village in the Maunu countryside. If you enjoy a bit of a hike, take the trail which begins just across the road from Chelsea House at Mair Park, to the top of Mt Parihaka with views across Whangarei to Mt Mania - another mountain which offers spectacular views across the harbour and up and down the coast, or to town where you can follow the river and walk the Hatea Loop.
If you are not planning to go to all the way to Cape Reinga you can make Chelsea House in Whangarei your base to explore the North, you can easily make day trips to many of Northland's stunning beaches, many only 1/2 hours drive from Whangarei. Paihia & Russell in the Bay of Islands are just over an hour away.
