The reviews I read prior to our visit were spot on. This place is a real gem which is totally enhanced by a caring owner. The situation was perfect and so was the cottage. Plenty of food was provided for our breakfasts, the beds were all comfortable, the shower was good and so was the wifi. I only wish New Zealand wasn't as far away as it is because my husband and I would definitely be visiting again. Thank you so much for caring about your visitors.
Whangarei is an excellent base for visiting the Bay of Islands, a two hour scenic drive from here. Birchgrove Cottage is a beautiful self contained cottage in the garden of the owners' house. It has been thoughtfully created to give every possible comfort to guests. It really is the most amazing value and we shall be sorry to leave.

wonderful stay in a comfortable cottage that had all the amenities you could ask for. Cereal, bread and other foods supplied was a very nice touch.
You kind of know when you find a "great weekend rental" when every detail is just perfect.
We also felt sincerity in the manager's comments, with genuine care and advice on where to go for dinner etc.
We were also recommended to take a look at the local golf course (right next door) and the local golf pro was very helpful too.
The room was very comfortable and extremely clean and we slept like babies. And it's really close to the shops and attractions of Whangarei too.
My previous experience at B&B's have been average, until now and I highly recommend Birchgrove to anyone who is traveling to the Whangarei region and is looking for a value option with great quality and service....you won't regret it!
Birch grove Cottage is excellent value for money. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are both well appointed. The living area is spacious. The biggest surprise was the way that the kitchen cupboards and the fridge were generously stocked. We had fresh bread, milk, yogurts, jams and fruit. Unusually, the supplies included glad wrap, baking paper, kitchen towel and plenty of cooking equipment. There were lots of nice towels provided too. The view from the living area is stunning. This is a gorgeous property. Some people who like their privacy might not enjoy the owners house being so close but our hosts were so lovely and friendly that it did not bother us.
