it claims to be heaven on earth and is not much short of this. Friendly owner manager on site makes sure you have all you need (including some rather enchanting miniature pigs nearby). This is self catering but there are supermarkets nearby, an all day restaurant at the end of the drive and some good eateries in town. Beautiful grounds... More

Down in a valley off the main road and surrounded by gardens. Only a 10 minute walk from town albeit up a steep drive. Our cabin was well appointed with a lovely patio/balcony. Very relaxing but as a previous reviewer said possibly not for everyone. The owner is most obliging and passionate about his project.

We arrive at Avalon our first stop on a tour of New Zealand. It truly is a wonderful spot and this place was beautiful. The apartment we had was part of a small complex set in 17 acres of gardens. The studio apartment we had was very tastefully decorated with everything you could want. The bathroom was large with great... More

The resort is situated behind a garden centre and so it's not easy to appreciate the beauty of the place at first glance. Our cottage though was immaculate and spacious and the hosts were friendly and really helpful. It's well placed for visits to waitangi or further north.

We stayed here for two nights. It was easy to find and the owners were extremely welcoming. The resort is in a valley behind a garden centre so there is no traffic noise from the main road. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the kitchen equipment more than adequate. The bed was huge and so comfortable I wish I could... More

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.
