Description

  • Panoramic, uninterupted views of Te Puna Inlet near Kerikeri

  • Loved by Denizen, NZ House & Garden, Your Home & Garden, Habitat and TV show Kiwi Living

High on its own headland high above the water and nestled into stunning mature gardens, The Homestead at Driftwood Seaside Escapes offers the utmost in privacy and discretion. This spacious, stylish home is ideal for entertaining guests, an intimate celebration or a luxurious family holiday.

Upstairs, the superb master ensuite with king bed opens out onto a balcony overlooking the inlet with chic decor loved by NZ House & Garden magazine. Downstairs, three chic double rooms overlook gorgeous landscaped gardens. Made up in top quality Wallace Cotton linen & stocked with fluffy towels, you can all fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

Lounge indoors or on a hammock, browse the bookshelves, fish off the rocks or fire up the barbecue to the soundtrack of native birds. Simply breathtaking. On winter days, there is nothing better than snuggling up seaside with a good book and local wine. The outdoor spa pool with views over the inlet to Russell, outdoor lounge and indoor log fireplace will mean you are more than happy to stay in for the weekend.

Wander down the garden path through the bush to your very own private shelly beach which hosts dinghies, kayaks, fire pit and deck chairs. Picnic in the lemon grove with panoramic ocean views, our chef is happy to prepare meals or a platter. Text us for the code to a stunning beach and local secret, just over the hill. The best bit? Driftwood accommodation is all pet friendly so your four legged friends can enjoy the fun too!

Just a twenty minute drive away, Kerikeri is a gourmet destination with plenty to explore from bustling farmers' markets, internationally acclaimed art and wine, to the luxurious Kauri Cliffs restaurant and golf course.

The Homestead at Driftwood Seaside Escapes is simply breathtaking and laid-back luxury redefined.

    We liked the design of the home and were comfortable and happy during our stay. Nice bush views with plenty of birds visiting.

    Visiting from England, this was our first experience of a Bach and we were thrilled. A beautiful, comfortable house in our own private tropical garden. Eating a BBQ under huge palm trees was a highlight of our visit. The location was close to Kerikeri town with shops and the Heritage Park at Kororipo but was very peaceful.
