About this listing

We are situated in the beautiful Bay of Islands, in Kerikeri, close to Paihia and Russell. The en suite room opens on to a pretty garden, within walking distance to tracks, waterfalls, the Stone Store (oldest building in NZ) and it is near to many restaurants and wineries. The room looks out onto a little creek and a pretty garden area where you can hear the warble of the Tui and the swoosh of the Wood Pigeon flying from tree to tree. A place to unwind, but still have access to amenities.

The space

There is a twin bed option available on request (see photo). We ran another B & B for many years, we love meeting people, have lots of local knowledge and have traveled much ourselves. This spot is very tranquil and is also very private, with its own entrance.
There is TV in the room.

Guest access

The room is situated on a lower level to the main house, with french doors opening onto the garden and a view of a little creek. There is a space to sit outside and a hot tub that can be used on request.
There is a spiral staircase to the upstairs house, which makes the space unsuitable for small children.
The en-suite bathroom has been recently replaced.

Breakfast options.

Served in the dining room overlooking the garden (or on the sheltered deck, weather permitting).

Fresh fruit salad, home made bread, home made preserves, muesli (usually home made), fresh orange juice from our own oranges (seasonal), tea and coffee (proper coffee machine or filter, whichever you prefer). $15.00

Full breakfast
All the above plus eggs however you want them cooked, bacon, mushrooms, tomato. $20.00

Breakfast basket in your room (put in the fridge the night before).
A simple continental including juice, muesli, bread/croissant and preserves. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room. $10.00
(There is a table and chairs to sit at to enjoy breakfast in your room, or you could sit outside, weather permitting).

Interaction with guests

We enjoy giving local information to travelers over a cup of tea, or a glass of something cold. We can give people lifts or pick up if required. We make all our own preserves, much from the garden. This can be provided as part of the breakfast. We are happy for you to wander around the garden.

The neighbourhood

We live in a beautiful leafy road, many of the properties are old orchards, including ours (still have lots of orange trees). You can walk to the tacks and water inlet and to restaurants and the Stone Store. Although we are close to town, it is very peaceful and you feel you are in the countryside, with Kiwi nearby.

Getting around

We have on site parking, safely off the road at the back of the property. You can walk to places of interest such as Wharepuke (very good restaurant) and the Parrot Place (end of our road). A car is helpful to see the wider area and get to beaches etc. Limited public transport.

Other things to note

We have a friendly dog and two cats, who may come and say hello! The price is for room only, with a small bar fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. Full cooked or continental breakfast is available on request at an additional charge, served in your room or up in the main house, or on the deck. Alternatively,there are many great cafes near by.

Very relaxing stay. The room was beautifully decorated, had a table and chairs for having tea and an ensuite roomy bathroom with shower. It also had it's own entrance way which was good and there was a lovely Spa pool that we relaxed in, in the evening. Plus the option of a home full cooked breakfast and homemade bread and fresh fruit salad, was a bonus. We couldn't get enough of the homemade jam. We only wish we'd booked in longer. And recommend this place as a great value place to stay.

The room was perfect, and Suzie and Drew were more than accommodating. The place is 5 minutes away from kerikeri and 20 minutes from the shore of pahia. We did plenty of huge hikes around the area and having a comfortable place to come back to at the end of a long day was perfect. The spa just topped it off! Thank you so much for a lovely stay, we will definitely be back!

It was a lovely and very clean house in a beautiful scenery. Susie and Drew were super nice. They served us a very nice breakfast and awesome homemade orange juice. We recommend it to everyone, who thinks about staying in Kerikeri.

We were so lucky to stumble across this place on airbnb. The room was lovely- nice and spacious, with its own private entry and bathroom so you feel like you have the place all to yourselves. Susie and Drew were so welcoming and had us on their lovely terrace for a drink and to give us some local information re: restaurants etc. Very happy- thanks!

Thank you Karin. It was a pleasure to have you and Suzanne to stay. I agree a slightly bigger table in side would be good and we are just finishing a paved area at the side specifically for guests to sit if you come again, that will be ready! I hope you will come again! I appreciate your comments. Susie

Very good email communication beforehand, flexible for our plans and offered to cook evening meal also after ringing around restaurants for us. Chatty and welcoming. Made us feel at home immediately. The house is secluded and quiet. Lovely big room with ensuite and spa pool just outside which they had ready for us, plenty of towels. Great place to explore Paihia/Waitangi without being right there (1/2 hour drive).Hosts knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was yummy, added cost but very happy to provide for us. Very good overall value for money. 2 friendly cats and dog to play with too.

We are people people. We have traveled and worked in other countries and enjoy sharing travel experiences and are passionate about the beautiful area we live in.
We have run a larger accommodation business, Kauri Villas in Whangarei Heads, now sold to lovely people who are continuing what we started 11 years ago. We still want to welcome guests on a much smaller scale because we love provide a comfy tranquil place for guests to relax and enjoy this area.
