The property

Need a rural escape to host the whole family? Look no further than Francis Orchard Country Stay! When we say the whole family we mean it, this spacious holiday home sleeps up to ten guests across five bedrooms and two bathrooms, offering plenty of room to spread out and find your ideal spot to unwind. Located in a very quiet area of Northland in a working macadamia nut orchard, Francis Orchard Country Stay is a large Garden of Eden. The lush, fully fenced section is filled with life, including lots of native birds, fruit trees, and even a swimming pool to complete your perfect summer stay. From both the sundecks on each side of the house, through the trees, you'll have glimpses of the countryside setting to help you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of busy holiday goers or city life. But even though you're in a rural hideaway, you're also just 10 minutes from Waipu village, and then 15 minutes from Waipu beach. At the end of a busy day bring everyone together for meal or some downtime in the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, or dine alfresco on food fresh off the BBQ. For a winter break, the wood-burning fireplace might be just the ticket to your cosy escape and Francis Orchard Country Stay is also equipped with some great essentials to ensure you feel right at home, including WiFi, and a TV with Freeview. Head into the heart of Waipu village for restaurants, cafes and the general store for anything you need. Then when it's time to hit the beach, head to the coast to Waipu Cove for a picturesque example of a long, white sandy, Kiwi beach. There is so much to enjoy at the Cove, surfing, kayaking, boating, surf casting, rock fishing, walking, running and cycling. Set out on your Waipu adventure - Francis Orchard Country Stay awaits!

Please note that there are CCTV cameras in operation at this property, pointed at the driveway and the entrance gate. They are on at all times, but not pointed towards the garden, decks or the interior of the property.
