I live in te Haumi, a suburb of Paihia, the hub of any activities you might be interested in, in the Bay of Islands. Your space is private with your own bedroom, bathroom and small sitting room - you can use the kitchen if you want to cook. I work part-time locally, so you will have the place to yourselves most of the time. Paihia is 6 minutes drive away, Waitangi 10 mins. My house is on the edge of a forest, at the end of a cul-de-sac. It is quiet and away from the hubub.
