We wanted to stay outside of Whangarei, closer to the Breams Head area, and feel extremely fortunate to have found Flutes. We stayed in the self contained apartment in the back of the property, which was charming, comfortable, clean, and very nicely self contained with kitchenette. There's a large loft bedroom up, and a Murphy bed downstairs, so 4 could stay comfortably.
Mt Manaia is a beautiful hike, and the trailhead is only a 5 minute walk away. The Breams Head area is only a 5 minute drive. It's in a very small town, so restaurant options are minimal, with one very suitable fairly good place nearby. There are others if you're willing to drive further.
We found the owners exceptionally helpful, and very pleasant people. They stayed out of our way except when we needed them, and then they really came through with some printing and assistance when we had an unfortunate business glitch back home that needed to be taken care of.
I'd stay here again. If I had understood the setup, I'd have planned to stay longer, and would have brought some groceries and wine and done some cooking in the unit. More
