During our holidays, we stay in 10 motels/hotels, and I can only have compliments for this place. It was the best. Rooms are very clean, nicely decorated, the bed was very comfortable. The owner is really nice, gave us a warm welcome, and good advice for sightseeing. Small negative point, the road to access is a bit narrow. But it... More

Our lovely cottage (Earth) was very comfortable and quiet. The owner and staff were very helpful and made our stay enjoyable. The resort is located down a short drive from the main road into Kerikeri making it quiet but not far from the town.

I stayed one night in what the owners call a "studio", but in fact is really a little one bedroom cabin....a bedroom (lovely canopied bed), bathroom, and main room with kitchen facilities (hotplate, sink, fridge, cabinets with dishes/glasses), a table, couch, and television. And a beautiful small patio where I could sit and write under the boughs of a tree... More

Avalon resort is set amongst beautiful tropical gardens with a natural rock swimming pool surrounded by a large deck for guest to enjoy. We were welcomed, shown to our unit and offered a complimentary drink which we enjoyed on the deck. Our unit was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We loved the fragrant tropical flowers in the gardens and the... More

My wife and I travelling with friends decided to stop in Kerikeri. We were referred to Avalon by the great staff at the scenic Pear Tree restaurant by the stone house. What a first rate referral. The weather was lousy but the stand alone cottages are just fabulous and private with ours ("Earth") being very romantic (4 poster bed!!). Willem... More

It is the kind of dream holiday place I'd gladly own and return to each year. Great people - et on y parle Francais aussi!!!!! Thank you so... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over winter. The weather was appalling but to be honest it didn't bother us at all, it added to the experience. We turned the heater on and sat looking out at the view all nice and cosy. One night we took the kids for a spa with the rain pouring rain which was a... More

I have to travel up North quite a bit for my business and have now reached the point where I won't stay anywhere else. This place is just heaven. Entering one of the cottages after a hard days work is like paradise. The beautiful decor, the massive and so very comfortable four poster bed is just magical. And the surrounding... More
