Once part of a larger neighbouring farm on the east bank of the Kaipara river, the land was subdivided and the main house built in the mid-1990s. A requirement of the subdivision was the creation of the wetland area to the north of the drive. This provides a habitat for much native flora and fauna. The original owner and a local architect designed the main house and retained a local builder to build the house and landscape the garden area.
Wendy, Buzz and family moved from England in 2005 & immediately fell in love with the South Kaipara area. After living nearby for seven years, Wendy and Buzz bought the property in 2012 with a view to making it their long-term family home. As the latest stewards of a wonderful smallholding with beautiful views, they felt called to share this blessing and their love of the area with others. After research and preparations during the spring, Hillside Bed & Breakfast opened for business in the early summer of 2012. Committed to the local community, Wendy and Buzz ensure that Hillside uses local produce and services wherever possible in order to contribute to the local rural economy.
