Spent a lovely three nights here. Hosts are very welcoming, relaxed and made us feel at home. Beautiful sunny spot with fabulous views. One can either kayak or do the great Mahinepua Peninsula walk or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular views. The hilltop spa provides breathtaking star gazing. Great daily breakfasts with a lovely four course dinner on one... More

My wife and I visited Cavalli Beach House in March 2016 and could not have been more blown away by the location, the accommodations, the beauty and the hospitality. This has to be one of the prettiest spots on earth and the Cavalli Beach House is right on the water in a spectacular setting. The owners also cooked and entertained... More

Carrie and Richard made us feel very welcome upon our arrival, including unexpected weather delays from our flight into Kerikeri. The unobstructed bedroom views looking into Rapaki Bay are serene and beautiful. The hiking out to the end of the Mahinepua Peninsula is not to be missed! Canapés in the evening with other guests was a social delight! We booked... More

What an extraordinary place! Cavalli Beach House is absolutely idyllic...quiet, beautiful, comfortable, relaxing...the perfect place to spend a few days. Carrie and Richard are fun, generous, knowledgeable hosts who know the area well. They suggested the Salt Air flight up to Cape Reinga and the hike that starts at the end of Cavalli Bay, both of which were spectacular. The... More

Not to be missed. There's really little we can add to the huge number of positive reviews that Carrie and Richard have already received except to endorse them all. We chose Cavalli Beach to hopefully provide us with a lovely 4 days wind down after a very busy 4 weeks touring NZ. It delivered all that we had hoped for... More

Cavalli Beach House was a highlight of our New Zealand vacation. The accommodations are outstanding; Carrie and Richard are so much fun to be with. Have an evening meal with them and request cheesecake!

My partner and I stayed here for the second time. We absolutely love everything about Cavalli, the rooms are so luxurious and it is situated on such a wonderfully quiet bay. We were the only people on the beach which is right out the front of the rooms, it is the perfect getaway from the city. Thank you so much... More

The beautiful accommodations and view were only surpassed by the care and attention to detail from our hosts. Carrie was the only host of those we stayed with on our trip that took the time to write ahead to make sure we knew where to go and orient us to the local sites and options. She and Richard even help... More
