When hosting any private function at Flaxmill, our resource consent requires some of the party to be staying on-site and unless the whole property is booked, we have to be mindful of our other guests. Therefore a minimum accommodation commitment is built into our starter package, providing for up to 20 of your guests to stay on-site. If more guests wish to stay, they may book directly with us (subject to availability).

Every celebration is unique so pricing will depend on your requirements, people numbers and the time of year.

Great venue for a destination celebration - We booked several of the houses and cottages for a group of 29 to celebrate my husband's 60th. Friends came from all over the North Island and also from Melbourne for a fantastic 3 night stay at Flaxmill....The venue was perfect with everything we needed from wine glasses, cutlery and crockery to tablecloths all provided. We decorated the venue for our Monty Python theme and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts from blu tac to cheese platters they sourced everything we needed. The break out end of the room with its gas fireplace and comfy chairs was the perfect spot for pre dinner drinks on a chilly winter evening and then we moved to the tables for dinner. The conference room is well equipped with every AV option needed and perfect for our slide shows, speeches and quiz. We were so lucky with the weather and we were able to enjoy a few of the local attractions such as Mercury Bay Wine Estate for a pizza and platters lunch In the winter sun, a ferry trip to Whitianga for dinner at a local restaurant, walks and drives around Hahei and Cathedral Cove area. The rooms were luxurious and well equipped with everything you could want and the park like garden setting of Flaxmill Accomodation is an absolute delight. Thank you Flaxmill for a perfect weekend, we will be back! - Vicki (August 2018)
