WHARE KURA is a large 140-year-old School House in the wee village of Aratapu (just 10-mins drive to the supermarket in Dargaville).

This listing is for a spacious (approx 100sqm) self-contained 1-2 bedroom Guest Wing complete with cute kitchen, roomy dining-lounge leading to conservatory with small terrace. Plus old bathroom with shower, toilet and washing-machine. Upstairs to Queen mezzanine bedroom, plus a few steps more up to an attic office/2nd Bedroom

WiFi & parking included.

Location: Just 5-10 mins drive from Dargaville,

Much of the structure and furnishings are old and imperfect, imbuing this iconic local residence with a wonderfully special antique and vintage atmosphere ... it is an eclectic blend of untold old history with dated furnishings speckled with the essential modern accessories.

Wonderfully generous space for a single or couple looking for a short/medium/long-term stay - and perhaps, say, 1-2 children.

Upstairs mezzanine bedroom has a Queen.
Off the bedroom, a few steps up, is an Office space, which ON REQUEST may potentially be equipped with a King-Single mattress on the floor, to take another adult, or 1-2 children. [This option is only available when the Guest Wing next door is not doing the same thing - or when larger groups are booking both Guest Wings.]

NOTE: This Guest Wing can potentially interconnect with our other Guest Wing "WhareKura-2" enabling the whole area to turn into one big Apartment - ideal for larger groups.

PS There are loads of organically grown fruit trees on the property, which you are welcome to top up your Fruit Bowl from.

Var du kommer att vara

Aratapu, Northland, Nya Zeeland

In the 1800s Aratapu was a bustling kauri timber trade town of 2000 people - today it is a "blink and you miss it" location between the Kaipara kauri-coast towns of Dargaville and Te Kopuru.
This building is what was built as the Aratapu School House in the late 1800s.

Hello! We're Mark and Kathy Fray. Mark is a skilled carpenter-renovator and Kathy is a maternity writer (+ amateur interior designer). We have the pleasure of being hosts to three completely different properties on AirBNB: Firstly, ONEPU MOANA RETREAT our beautiful southern Hokianga 4-star silver Qualmark'd property (we are the only Qualmark rated holiday house in Opononi). Facilities include six-bedrooms, two kitchen-dining-lounges, large deck with expansive uninterrupted views of the stunning Hokianga harbour, plus spapool terrace. It is an ideal location for extended families and groups of friends - or 5-6 guests wanting their own bedroom each. Secondly, our OLD OWHANGO POST OFFICE LODGE in the National Park ward of the Ruapehu District. This iconic King Country building, has been beautifully renovated with opulent 1930s Art Deco decor. (It is currently going through the comprehensive Qualmark grading process.) It can be booked as the West Wing 1-4 bedroomed Holiday Home including Gatsby-style lounge, stunning kitchen and 4-poster Queen in the master bedroom, Drying room, Gun safe & Fire-pit. And its East Wing can be booked as 1-4 individual/altogether bedrooms with share kitchen-dining & share bathroom. Or the entire interconnecting 7-Bedroom Lodge can be booked for up to 18 guests. Finally, our enormous WHARE KURA (The Old Aratapu School House) outside of Dargaville on the Kaipara's Kauri Coast. This property offers two Guest-Wings, able to accommodate from 1-15 guests in 1-5 bedrooms depending on what is needed. Yet to be renovated, this accommodation is "cheap & cheerful", roomy, and well equipped. With every guest stay we, and our wonderfully dedicated local property managers, always do everything in our power to ensure guests have a wonderful stay, that ideally exceeds their expectations. Love & light, Kathy

Under din vistelse

We also live on the property (most of the time) in another self-contained wing, so we can potentially be available if you need our help. But in general you should feel you have very good privacy during your stay.
