In March we spent a relaxing week at Lyness accommodation in the self contained cottage. Great accommodation for a couple overlooking the KeriKeri inlet. Sharon and Adrian were very hospitable hosts. They were happy to have a chat about the area and travel in general. Well appointed cottage with adequate kitchen with verandah overlooking the inlet and countryside. Easy drive... More

I don't normally travel on my own but I was in this instance due to my husbands commitments. We have stayed in some exceptional places internationally and Lyness known historically as "Strathbrae" is a little piece of paradise in KeriKeri, Northland, NZ. You have a choice of two accommodation styles - The Cottage with stunning views over Keri Keri inlet... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights in the Lyness suite, and though the weather wasn't always as warm and welcoming as we had hoped, our accommodation and host sure were! This place is cosy and comfortable with just the right amount of luxury to make you feel like you're really on holidays. Sharon is a wonderful host and booked tours for... More

We had a wonderful stay at Lyness Accommodation. The property is extremely quiet and private having that rural feeling yet so close to town. The suite is just lovely, spacious and warm with lots of personal touch. The verandah is the best. Wonderful views and warm morning sunshine. The hosts Sharon and Adrian, were just great, genuine and welcoming. We... More

I grabbed a voucher for two nights for $199 for the cottage and we had a very lovely stay. The cottage is small and perfectly formed with lovely bed and awesome bath with a view. Hosts were very nice and informative and it was a pleasure to stay. A suggestion: it would be great if there was a slightly bigger... More

Adrian and Sharon are delightful hosts. We chose the cottage which overlooks a vineyard and the river valley. One can also stay adjacent to their charming home in the "suite". The accommodation is very attractive and comfortable. The highlight was the ability to BBQ and enjoy fine New Zealand wines on the verandah. This is a gem and should be... More

We stayed in the Suite for 4 nights, and would have loved to stay much much longer.... We were on a romantic break, and it was perfect for us.

Our visit was a 50th wedding anniversary present from family, and was just beautiful! We loved the homestead-style house and suite, good to see an older, historic home so lovingly restored, and sympathetically improved. Sharon and Adrian are delightful hosts.

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful cottage - a genuine slice of NZ. The place is cute and small but definitely big enough for two. All the creature comforts you could hope for and the host has gone the extra mile to make sure you are well looked after. The view is spectacular and looks onto the historic... More
