This beautifully restored 7-room villa sits in the heart of historic Devonport on Auckland’s North Shore.
Dating back to around 1880, this charming Victorian B&B is full of character with individually decorated guest rooms, some with antique pine beds, claw-foot bath tub or private balcony. Every room has an ensuite bathroom, tea and coffee-making facilities and free Wi-Fi.
A gourmet breakfast is included daily, served either in the spacious sunny dining room overlooking palms, frangipani and hibiscus blooms, or outside on the veranda. The cosy guest lounge is the ideal place to relax at the end of the day, swapping stories with other guests or simply curling up with a good book by the fire.
Peace and Plenty is just a short walk from the friendly restaurants, cafés and bars of Devonport and a 5-minute walk to the ferry terminal. Fishing, kayaking, forest tours and Maori cultural tours can all be taken nearby, but don’t forget to allow time to explore Devonport itself – this historic maritime village was one of New Zealand’s first settlements.
