Just the place to recharge your batteries and relax. I usually stay elsewhere in Kerikeri but thought I would try this place and was so glad I did. Avalon is located very close to town down a vey steep and winding driveway which is great as you cant hear any road noise. I stayed in Earth cottage which I thought... More

So glad we chose this resort, lovely to be surrounded by nature,and to not hear any road noise, or other disturbance. The bed was comfortable, the unit was roomy with a dishwasher, and the spacious bathroom even had a bath. The owner popped by each day to see if we needed anything. Perfect place to get away from it all,... More

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
