Historic Kohukohu Villa

Stay in one of New Zealand’s oldest buildings!

Kohukohu has been home to the Historic Kohukohu Villa for the last 180 years. First built as an office for the Kauri Mill, the Historic Villa has had many uses over its long history. It housed the town library for a time, it was used as a workingman’s club & a billiards room and is even rumoured to have been the town jail in its past life.

Historic Kohukohu Villa offers two sumptuous guest rooms on the west wing of the house and is being painstakingly restored by owners Dee & Sean. Your stay will not only be warm and welcoming, it will be a real chance to unwind & relax in a truly unique setting. Step back in time with furnishings carefully chosen to hark back to a bygone era, while not having to give up any of the modern amenities like electricity, indoor plumbing and Wifi! A separate TV room & expansive outdoor deck means you may not even want to leave the property.

Your hosts will cook you a sumptuous breakfast in the morning and is included in your nightly rate.

Kohukohu is a small historic precinct on the northern shores of the Hokianga harbour, and is one of the oldest European settlements in New Zealand. In the Kauri milling heyday, Kohukohu was the 3rd largest town outside of Auckland in the North Island, and still has many historically significant buildings from that era standing today. A quaint historic walk is mapped out to showcase the history of the town.
