The hosts were so helpful and the food was in abundance. I would highly recommend and we will be back. We loved the fact that this... More

We stayed at Moon Gate Villa for 2 nights. We originally booked for only one night but quickly decided to stay a second. There is plenty to see and do around Kerikeri. Our host, Lionel, was very friendly and welcoming. The whole building is only about 10 years old and so everything looks new. It is inset down a 50... More

Stayed two nights in cottage in garden. Extremely well equipped with first rate bedroom, lounge area, kitchen and shower room. Private balcony ideal for sitting out at night looking at stars and milky way with almost no light pollution. Can only describe it as brilliant and superb value for money. Lionel as host is friendly and really helpful. Would definitely... More

We stayed here for a family reunion and were impressed as soon as we arrived. Lionel (and the dogs) gave us such a warm welcome, we immediately felt at home. The rooms and cottage have everything you could need, the beds are luxuriously comfortable and the garden and pool delightful. Then there is the delicious breakfast of tropical fruits, croissants,...

My husband and I stayed at Moon Gate Villa for 2 nights at the very beginning of our 3 weeks stay in New Zealand. It was a little difficult to find, as it is off the road, and the sign at the end of the drive isn't very big, but once we found it we didn't want to leave. I... More

Beautiful from the jacaranda tree in the driveway, the tinkling water in the hallway, the little private garden off our bedroom, thankfully a swimming pool on a very hot day. Charming hosts and great breakfast. We would always recommend Moon Gate Villa

Spotless, beautiful lush garden surroundings, calm, dvds to watch. The bed was very comfortable. Lionel is a very friendly host and we loved super cute dog Mojo! Next time we will stay longer, i hope.
