My wife and I were married a couple of days before and this was the first stop on our honeymoon, we chose to stay in the Cottage for a... More

After a long drive we arrived at Moon Gate Villa to be warmly greeted by Rob. Sitting in the luxurious guest lounge overlooking a beautifully landscaped garden he gave us the low-down on our accomodation and local area. We could have stayed in their 5 star exceptionally sumptuous Bed & Breakfast rooms but we chose to stay in the garden... More

We stayed three nights in early January and from the moment we arrived our hosts ensured that our stay was a memorable one. The Villa is set within magnificent gardens with a, small but warm, swimming pool. The rooms are very comfortable with every detail attended to which includes quality WiFi. The Breakfast should also not be missed as you'll... More

My husband and I soaked up every moment of the tranquility and beauty we enjoyed at our recent stay at Moon Gate Villa. Sadly, we only had one night in Kerikeri, but we made the most of it, walking in the lovely gardens, admiring the charming cottage, enjoying a glass of wine on the small deck. It's hard to believe...

Faultless service from the host - made us feel so welcomed & the local knowledge & advice on the area was spot on. The cottage was spotless & everything we required. Would return in a heartbeat if circumstances allowed.

What a fabulous place and beautiful hosts. This is five star luxury with a relaxed environment. Really enjoyed the company of our hosts. Just had the best time. The only criticism was that we had to leave - I could stay here forever. Alas it's back to camping for the next few days.
