*****The Woodshed*****

 A fantastic place to stay with children and dog. House catered so well with indoor and outdoor toys for children and books for everyone. The kitchen was stocked with every plate and implement you could ever need for a dinner party or picnic, a true home away from home. We loved the safe yard, the views and location. Store, petrol and takeaways just around the corner and lake very close by. Friendly, helpful owners - thank you for letting us stay. We have recommended to family and will be back! 

Breathtaking views of Whangarei Heads

 Great location opposite the beach - the house was very comfortable and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. The big backyard and kayaks etc were a bonus - especially since we had a 5,6 and 9 year old. Many thanks - Would we stay again? - you bet! 

Long Reach Lodge - 5 min walk to town...

 We had a lovely stay here while we were in Kerikeri for a wedding. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and the property was perfect for us and very clean and tidy. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Kerikeri!

Bach and / or cottage - you decide

 Every year we come back and enjoy this bach and love the fact that we are creating special memories for our children of their summer holidays with family.

 This was a perfect setup for a get together with a friend and her children. A room for each of us, the older boys loved being downstairs, the younger girls nearby upstairs. Lots of room to be together in the lounge and lovely views to enjoy from the deck in the morning sun, but shaded for dinner when we had been out in the sun all day. Perfect!
