Welcome T0 Marni's Four Legged Friends

Marnis Four Legged Friends is a unique country retreat stay for cats & dogs and also the home to Whangarei City Riding Centre. Located in the beautiful setting of the peaceful Paranui Valley in central Whangarei

Not like any other home stay Marni offers a complete ‘home for home’ experience for all cats and dogs visiting, after all your furry friends need a holiday too!

The tranquil property is surrounded by many acres of farmland and is bordered by the Hatea river and the A.H Reed Kauri forest with its famous canopy walkways.


The Riding School
Home Sweet Home

 We offer riding lessons for people of all ages and abilities. Our horses are very friendly and love having visitors, come and join us ! 

 The dog and cat home stay is one of a kind. It is an alternative to boarding kennels and catteries; where animals are cared for in an environment that is just like being at home and getting lots of love and attention in a safe, secure, and spacious family environment.
