Great hideaway hidden off the main road of Kerikeri. Be careful not to miss the entrance as the road sign is not lit and the driveway can be tight and dark. The house was clean, tidy and modern. The staff are friendly and the surrounding ponds, trees and animals make for a very relaxing stay.

What a hidden gem. I happened upon this place at the last minute when visiting Kerikeri for the weekend. Down a drive towards the river, the grounds are beautifully landscaped and the noise of the road disappears. The rooms are tastefully appointed and the setting designed for seclusion and harmony. You can get lost in the quiet on a walk... More

Amazing large self contained cottage, beautifully equipped and set in wonderful countryside. The perfect place for a quiet restful break yet close to all amenities. Can't wait to return, a little gem. We will be back November and January all being well.

not only is the price reasonable, the resort is absolutely breath taking. My husband and I stayed in a studio unit attached to the office area and it had a smaller room. Just a magnificent place to unwind and chill out. And the young man that checked us in showed brilliant hospitality, so polite, friendly and an A1 professional. I... More

Great central location - close to food outlets, the Sat Market and 5 min from town. But feels secluded as tucked away down the long driveway. The Accommodation is set on lovely landscaped grounds. Great accommodation for a good price, lovely staff, would stay again.

Beautiful setting and lovely hosts. Just a couple of housekeeping issues....coldish night...would be good to have an electric blanket on the bed not in the cupboard. Only two towels in the bathroom and nowhere to dry them...so ideally extra towels or heated towel rail would be great. No dishwashing cleaner. Cushions worn on couches but just nitpicking now..as the title... More

A beautifully landscaped resort. Well appointed wooden houses scattered through the grounds with micro wave, cooker, washing machine, comfortable bed and large bathroom. Housekeeping a bit hit and miss so it felt like self catering at times but would forgive almost anything because it is such an idyllic setting! Keri Keri is a sleepy town, lovely walks through the bush... More

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
