We look forward to welcoming you as guests in our beautiful home during your stay with us in Whangarei, Northland. 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 two King guest rooms with ensuites, a relaxed, comfortable decor - with high ceilings, polished native Kauri floors and many architectural features inside and out.
