On a recent trip to NZ we were fortunate enough to stay with Lionel and Rob at Moon Gate Villa, from the time we first made contact with them when organizing our booking, to the time we left we were made to feel valued and special. The cottage accommodation was fantastic, a hidden gem. We arrived late on a wet... More

Wonderfully welcoming, Lionel and Rob know how to make you feel relaxed and at ease instantly. We arrived late on a Friday evening after a particularly arduous working week and a long drive in the rain, all of which vanished from our consciousness as we entered Moon Gate Villa, were invited into a luxuriously comfortable and cosy living room and...

Moon Gate Villa was amazing, Lionel and Mark where friendly & helpful, organising all our activities over a wonderful cooked breakfast every morning. The gardens are beautiful and there is such a relaxing feel about the whole place. I would recommend anyone staying in Keri Keri who enjoys luxury to stay here!

It was perfect, right down to the last detail. Very clean and comfortable, the service impeccable. We exchanged recipes, restaurant tips and even had dinner together. The garden is beautiful and being personally greeted including the pets, just felt like being at home.

We stayed for a week and enjoyed Moon Gate Villa very much. It started with the personalized welcome Board, the friendly manner of the hosts and the fishpond along the inside alley. The bed was perfect, the windows could stay open all night as screendoors were installed and in good shape. The Garden is beautiful and you have your own... More

My husband and I have just returned from a two-night romantic getaway at Moon Gate Villa and we both agree it is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at in New Zealand. The hosts are friendly, helpful and unobtrusive; the accommodation immaculate and luxurious. I loved all the little touches; for example the fresh flowers and chocolates... More

My husband and I found this most glorious accommodation 4 years ago on our first visit together from England. We have stayed in deluxe hotels all over the world, but this accommodation is unsurpassable when it comes to finesse, beauty and sheer luxury, not only the villa itself, (which we were made to feel as if it were our own),...
