  • Excellent site, as described in advert

    Excellent site, as described in advert. Beautiful, serene, quiet-perfect getaway from the city. Close enough to Kerikeri town center. Beautiful deck and views, absolutely marvelous place with decent beds and mattress. No TV or wifi but good network coverage. Only down side was there was no working torch or matches, no light in bathroom and generator ran out of power on our last night-still did not affect us but would have if we were a bigger group. Overall-highly recommended!

  • Wonderful place to stay

    Wonderful place to stay. The surrounding bush was quiet and peaceful and very private. Fantastic for children and close to beautiful beaches. Beds were very comfortable and plenty of room for everyone. Loved staying here

  • A special setting and property with lots of individual charm

    A special setting and property with lots of individual charm. Away from it all you feel very much in nature here, the water literally at your feet and the bush right behind the house (lots of cicadas). Plenty of space inside and out although the deck has no railing, small children would need watching. Loved exploring, kayaks and fire pit a welcome addition. Very well stocked comfortable and clean. Extra lamps in bedrooms would be perfect. Highly recommended, would love to go back. Take a torch
