Description from the owner
Our Macadamia Nut Orchard is 1.5 hours drive north of Auckland, just five minutes off State Hwy 1 and within easy driving distance to several fabulous beaches. Barachel Orchard is nestled in the green hills of Northland amongst mature macadamia trees. In nearby Waipu village there are cafes, restaurants and take-aways as well as all essential convenience stores, a renowned apothecary and herbalist/naturopath who I can vouch for with both myself and my animals as patients.
You will be sharing our home and your accommodation is comfortable and relaxing with the King bedroom opening on to a small deck and through to the fenced pool and BBQ area. ...Read more
