If you are looking for a roadside motel with a pool, a bar and a family restaurant, don't stop here. If you like the backpacker vibe, this wouldn't be the place for you. But if you are seeking sanctuary, silence, natural beauty, inspiring and welcoming hosts and time for reflection or creativity, book yourself into Ora Ora for a long stay. It might save your life or at least transform it. You will be nourished by a thousand shades of green, bird songs and the sound of the river. In fact, there really is no other sound. Bring some books or art supplies, a journal, your camera, some or your favorite music and your walking shoes. Enjoy the walks to Rainbow Falls, the Kerikeri Basin, the Maori Pa site and the shops, restaurants and cinema in town.
There are also many tourist activities to chose from and Rolf and Inge will help you make the appropriate bookings.
The chalets are very private, beautiful. comfortable and well-equipped (fridge, stove-top, washing machine) with views of the garden and forest from both the deck and large windows.
