Waimarire - (meaning Tranquil Waters) is located in the Riverview area of Kerikeri, Bay of Islands. Only 2 kms from the Kerikeri village, on the inlet, and close to Opito Bay.

Our home is an architecturally designed house with multi levels, which we have renovated to give a modernist feel. Beautiful views of trees and the inlet.

The top floor has

1 queen bedroom with a water view balcony & ensuite (rain shower, bath, toilet, double vanity).

1 Single or twin room, with 1 king single bed & 1 single trundler bed, also with water views. This room is currently made up as a girls room, but can be made up for boys, or neutral for adults if desired.

The trundler bed sets up to full height and can be pushed together with the king single to make a double bed.

The mid level has a lovely modern kitchen, laundry, toilet and dining area and lounge all with water views and wooden floors, and french doors onto the decked areas.

The lower level has a queen bedroom with an ensuite (rain shower, vanity, toilet, slate tiles). This bedroom has internal and external access and french doors onto a deck with views of trees and water. This bedroom also has a wall mounted flat screen tv. (previously rented alone as Waimarire Luxury Apartment). Wooden floors.

2-3 car off street parking.

All outdoor living is on the decks, as the grounds are currently being lanscaped.

Good cell phone coverage.

  • Very quiet, private, with no road noise

    Very quiet, private, with no road noise. Quite a tight space but comfortable. Nice view with sounds of a waterfall at a distance.

  • Excellent location close to Kerikeri township

    Excellent location close to Kerikeri township. Great place for a couple to relax and unwind. Very private area with lots of bird life and a great deck to sit on and relax and listen to the falls in the distance.
