  • Paradise

    Paradise. The new girlfriend was very impressed with my choice :-) The weather couldn't have been worse, but we'll definitely be back in summer to make the most of the beach. If you read a bad comment about this place, the author is likely to be a raving lunatic, so pay it no attention.

  • Great place to stay in Kerikeri

    Great place to stay in Kerikeri. We were able to walk into the village in about 5-7 minutes. the Sail Loft was the perfect place for us with older teenage children. We will definitely consider staying at Driftwood Kerikeri again should we ever be up that way.

  • Brilliant property to stay at

    Brilliant property to stay at. The kids and dog could run freely and safely yet we were close enough to the action and sights. Will definitely have on the list to stay again. Property clean tidy and fully equipped. Thank you Vanessa and her team
