The Hammock Cottage was a gorgeous little haven after a busy business day passing through Kerikeri. We highly recommend this little spot to unwind and relax. Vanessa and Richard are fantastic hosts being very hospitable. The view from our cottage with the sea and bush is just what we wanted.

Stayed @ The Hammock Bach,relaxing from my busy life in England. Spent time kayaking & walking & biking, The Bach comes with everything you need for sort or long stay (washing machine & Sky TV & Coffee machine). I loved spending time on the balcony reading & watching the parrots in the trees & over looking the water & mountains. Great stay would highly recommend a visit

We spend 3 nights at Driftwood and loved every minute of it. The batch was equipped with everything you need and very comfortable. The views are to die we sat every night by the fire roasting marshmallows and drinking red wine. Been able to bring our dog was a huge bonus. Would definitely go back.

The Bach has absolutely stunning views and is set in a very peaceful location however it is some distance from the Kerikeri township. The decor is charming though after staying there for a week the drawbacks become evident. There are no screens on the doors or windows so if you want fresh air you will have to endure the invading insects. The bbq has reached it's use by date and barely functions, there is no dishwasher and only a small quantity of crockery so washing up gets a bit tedious after a few days. If you are a light sleeper the fridge is fairly loud at night which could be a problem for some. In summary this property was developed several years ago and is showing signs of wear and tear and needs to be refreshed. Apart from an initial problem with the television we had no communication with the owners. If you are looking for a secluded place to stay with fabulous views, The Bach is hard to beat but only stay for a couple of days.

I had the pleasure of staying in the Bach cottage a few days ago and it was one of the highlights of my trip! The incredible, uninterrupted view, spacious living and kitchen areas as well as the peace, quiet and tranquility of the area made for a memorable trip. The rope swing and the kayaks by the water were also a fun touch. I hope to be back next time I hit North Island!
