This is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

An older 3 bedroom home full of character and artwork. Partly renovated. Overlooks the Hokianga Harbour. Relax on the deck with friends and family when the weather is great or in winter enjoy the warmth of the Kent fire in the lounge.

House Rules

Please leave the house tidy, on your last morning could you put all the towels you have used into the bath and leave the beds unmade, so I can easily tell which ones you have used, thank you.
I prefer if you smoked outside.

This is a great place to stay with the family. Plenty of room, large deck and fantastic views of the Hokianga.

This place is not everyone's cup of tea. We won't stay here again until the place has been tidied up and upgraded. Very friendly host and amazing views from the properties, but the state of the property is in need of care and attention.

Response from Emily:
If I had the money to do all the deferred maintenance and buy new furniture, I would not need to rent my home out for people to stay. I clearly stated in my additional information, that as the price suggests this is budget accommodation. You paid $80, that is less than $27 each, this is less than a room at most backpackers or a cabin at a campground, so I find your 1 Star rating for value unfair. Maybe you should read the history of how AirBnB started with an airbed in a living room floor because you seem to have the mistaken belief that all AirBnB must be brand new and pristine. The photo I have from the front door shows the exact same furniture in the exact same place, and in the bedrooms, one of the duvet covers was the exact one in the photo, so I find a 2 star rating for accuracy harsh. This is fairly much my sole income, so I think you must enjoy trying to destroy someone's livelihood. In the future I suggust you only book with 5 star superhosts, as the may be the only ones who could possibly live up to your extreme expectations.

Emily's house has wonderful views of the Hikianga Harbour. It is very spacious and can accommodate groups and families easily. A great place to stay in summer time when it's nice and warm and to be on this beautiful harbour, while being on a budget. Thanks Emily for booking us in…

Spent a nice weekend here, very comfortable with lots of couches and a great view! Wasn’t the cleanest place I have ever stayed but wasn’t the dirtiest either. The dogs were awesome and the house had a ton of unique decorations! Overall a great place to stay while in Opononi!
