About Karen Clearwater
Having lived in Northland most of our lives, we appreciate everything that it has to offer, particularly enjoying the many bush walks and coastal activities. We have lived at Maungatapere for 17 years.
Karen Clearwater purchased this Cottage in 2018
Why Karen Clearwater chose Maungatapere
AvoStay was purpose built early in 2018, so it is modern and fresh inside and out. Situated away from the main house, the cottage has a separate driveway making it very private. Wifi is free and all linen is provided. Totally self-contained.
What makes this Cottage unique
The view from the front of the cottage is vey tranquil and calming. During the day you look across the lawn to the avocado orchard and trees beyond. On a clear evening, the night sky is spectacular, with no streetlights to interfere with star gazing. The dawn chorus is a delight to wake up to and during the day, you'll be entranced by the number of native tui, fantails and kereru that enjoy the mostly native plantings.
Portacots and bedding not supplied.
Property inspection: For stays longer than one week, the hosts may request a property inspection. The time for this will be arranged to suit guests.

Avostay - a real gem
On our recent visit to Whangarei we had the pleasure of staying at Avostay.
What a gem of a place this is. Our hosts, Karen and Grant could not have been more helpful and welcoming.
The cabin was immaculate and a really comfortable place to relax.
Fresh avocados miraculously appeared at our front door most mornings. Many different types wild life strolled by as we had our breakfast on the shaded decking area.
We highly recommend this accommodation and
if we ever return to this area we will have no hesitation in booking Avostay again.
