“Exceeded our expectations”

We are a family of four from the US - kids ages 12 and 8. We stayed here for four nights. The cottage is new, clean and large enough for a very comfortable stay. The views are beautiful. Our hosts could not have been nicer. As an unexpected treat they invited us to join them for a horse drawn carriage ride into town.

We would definitely stay here again.

Standard of accommodation very good, with all mod cons and equipment as necessary. Delightful hosts who provided excellent information on local and area amenities, places of interest to visit and local restaurants.

“A Spacious Holiday Home with a difference appealing to everyone travelling by car”

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay here - the warm welcome by host Adrian, the apartment and its wonderful views over KeriKeri Inlet, the impromptu Carriage ride through KeriKeri ....... We would recommend the Carriage House to anyone travelling by car (it is several Kilometers fromthe town centre) and reasonably mobile (the only access is via a flight of steps)

“A Horse Lover's paradise”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

person found this review helpful

The property is located out of town in a semi rural area. A car is essential to visit places of interest in the Bay of Islands. The property was as advertised and we were pleasantly surprised by the rural setting. Our Hosts Adrian and Sylvia went out of their way to provide detailed information on how to get to places of interest, plus recommending great restaurants and nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms in the Carriage House are all large and pleasantly furnished. The fridge and stove were full sized making self catering easy. Linen was changed regularly. Two large supermarkets are located in KeriKeri. Note that access to the cottage is by a staircase.
Access to the horses and the carriage ride through Kerikeri was an unexpected highlight.
We had a fantastic time - great location, great weather, great hosts. We'll be back....
