We stayed here peak travel time of new year for two nights. With a forest as a backdrop, the place was new, relaxing and felt like home. To top it off, Bill, the owner kindly offered us a ride to a local restaurant for new year's eve dinner and celebrations. Would definitely stay again.

We reserved this in advance and were very pleasantly surprised by it, especially given the price. The apartment we stayed in was 2 bedroom, and had recently been completely redone. It was very nice. We could park right in front, so it was convenient. Location was easy to find and convenient to attractions. Owner was there and was very helpful.

Bill and his wife have taken an older motel and made it modern and comfortable. There's free self-serve laundry and internet, kitchenettes, and a nice pool area with grill for guest use. Kerikeri is a very nice town with some great walks, and all the conveniences (like a supermarket) are very nearby. My only hesitation in recommending the place is...

We stayed one night at these beautiful studio apartments. Along with friends we booked a total of five apartments. The apartments are all newly refurbished, clean bright and spacious. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. Easy level walk to Kerikeri town centre. We will certainly stay at STAY on our next visit to Kerikeri.

Thanks for the lovely review Jane! The two bedroom apartments are perfect for a family group - a groovy and gorgeous little home away from home and a great base to explore the North. See you next time! Kind regards, Bill and Paula :-)

Our one night stay here was delightful. Recently renovated, the studio was well equipped and tastefully appointed. The bed was really comfortable. Our host was really helpful, booking a local restaurant for us and providing us with freshly ground coffee in the morning. Overall excellent value for money.

Third stay at this motel spanning 12 years. The second was 12 months ago when renovations were just beginning. In October of this year (2016) my third stay was witness to the scope of renovation. Wow! The place looks great - tasteful, restful and great value. Well done!
