Directions to Chalet Romantica


From Central Auckland

The trip from Auckland city centre should take about 3½ hours although summer holiday traffic may slow things down. Take State Highway 1 (SH1) north to Whangarei and onward towards Cape Reinga. About 45 minutes north of Whangarei at Kawakawa, take SH11 to Paihia. Bedggood Close is one street just before you get to the waterfront. Turn left between Scenic Circle Hotel and Marlin Court Motel, then take the first left opposite the local tennis courts. Drive to the top of Bedggood Close.

Paying Road Tolls

North of Auckland there’s a short section of tolled motorway. There are no toll booths but don’t worry, just drive through. Your car is photographed and you pay afterwards online. We can help you do that when you get here.


From Kerikeri or Kaitaia

Take SH10 south, then follow signs for Paihia. At Paihia drive along the waterfront until you get to Kings Road. Turn right onto Kings Road and then take the first Left into Mac Murray Road. Drive for approx 50 meters, then take first right onto Bedggood Close (opposite local tennis courts). Drive to the top of Bedggood Close.
