Secluded, casual and all yours. The perfect romantic getaway or laid-back honeymoon.

Driftwood's award-winning The Bach & The Hammock are nestled into native bush on a private peninsula just outside the boutique village of Kerikeri, a mornings drive from Auckland. Spacious studio homes designed with relaxation and ambience in mind, explore the lush surrounding forest, take the dinghy for a row or pull up a hammock and dream.

Sleeping up to 2 in a king bed, snuggle into luxury linen and listen to the ocean and native birdsong. Self-catering with simple larder supplies, stay in and BBQ or head out to Kerikeri’s excellent restaurant culture, just a short drive away. Bring the boat and be at the Cavalli Island’s in minutes.

With a focus on providing a unique & nostalgic experience for our visiting adventurers, you are free to roam our 16 acres of vineyard, native bush, streams, mature landscaping, horses, fruit trees and private coves. Back at the bach, stargaze at the fire pit and indulge in quirky book, magazine & movie libraries.

Wine from our onsite vineyard is available. Laid-back luxury is all yours with Wallace Cotton linen, loads of beach towels plus marshmallows for toasting. No detail is forgotten, your escape is ready and waiting.

Special conditions: Well behaved pets are welcome. If you do bring your pet we charge a $60 deep cleaning fee to be left in cash on departure. If it's a very short stay you can leave a bit less! Please note, The Hammock may not be suitable for disabled or elderly guests. Feel free to get in touch to discuss.
