Peaceful rural accommodation, minutes from city centre and local attractions
About Kate Mabbett
Myself (Kate), my husband (Jake) and our two children Belle (3) and Billy (3 months) are fortunate to live in rural paradise and want to share our peaceful surroundings with others.
Why Kate Mabbett chose Whangarei
This unique cabin that is only three months old was purposefully built to allow guests the opportunity to wake up amongst nature. Nestled amongst trees with a private deck that overlooks the most beautiful rural setting will leave you feeling truely relaxed. Based on minutes drive or in walking distance to a number of popular tourist destinations and to Whangarei City this place will be perfect for you.
What makes this Cabin unique
With the most peaceful rural setting and outlook you can enjoy the beautiful country views. With sea views also surrounding you from areas around the location, you will pinch yourself to think that you are only minutes from town. Farm animals and pets are around you and we are happy to give you a tour to meet them if you wish. With your own unique bathroom that allows you to shower amongst nature you will not want to leave.

Quiet country cabin close to town.
The cabin was an ideal base for me when working up the Whangarei heads. Plenty of parking for the 4x4 and trailer, close to town yet in a peaceful rural setting. The complimentary continental breakfast and dish cleaning service was a welcome bonus that saved me time in the mornings ( I wish others would provide something similar).
When returning to the cabin after a days work, there were clean dishes, fresh milk and an awesome cookie in the fridge! However, the best thing of all was the daily greetings and company of the adorable pets!
Ideal place to get away from city life. Very peaceful & quiet yet handy to Whangarei's attractions & the beaches of the Tutukaka Coast.
Awsome location and awsome hosts who thought of all the little things I had forgotten like shampoo!! 😂
Lovely, cosy place, with really nice views. Lots to do nearby.
Perfect place to stay while working in area.
