The latest addition to the Driftwood Seaside Escapes family and located off campus at Tapuaetahi Beach. Reef Cottage is newly renovated with a gorgeous beachic interior by Vanessa Owen. Widely featured over the Summer in magazines.

Absolute waterfront at Tapuaetahi - secret code for the gate upon booking! This is THE primo summer beach spot in the Far North and a local favourite to escape the summer crowds. Enjoy a seaside escape reminiscent of childhood holidays. Wake up with the sun, enjoy the excellent surf spot on the reef, take the boat out for a spin or play with littlies in the shallow lagoon.

Reef Cottage will be set up and ready so no need to pack the kitchen sink! Inside sleeps four in two bedrooms. Plenty of space for tents on the lawn so please enquire if your extra guests would like to camp out. Reef Cottage has a generous kitchen with everything you need to cook up the days catch plus a chic and comfortable living and dining area with tons of movies. Or fire up the BBQ and cook waterfront in your outdoor entertainment space. Well behaved pets are welcome by prior arrangement.

Stunning in the Winter with a deserted beach for blusterly walks and a cosy cottage ot come home to.

Love to discuss really good longer stay rates after April.

  • 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

  • Driftwood Central is like a little paradise in busy Kerikeri

    Driftwood Central is like a little paradise in busy Kerikeri. We actually stayed at Lighthouse and Tui, not at Sail Loft. Tui was lovely decorated and very spacious for the four of us. The bathroom could have a little makeover but it's a great bach to stay at anyway. After a few nights there we moved to the Lighthouse which isn't meant to host 4 people but we loved it. We quickly got all the needed extras (cot, bed, bedding) for the kids, It's got a nice modern bathroom and one big room.
