We are situated in the beautiful Bay of Islands, in Kerikeri, close to Paihia and Russell. The en suite room has a private entrance, looking onto the garden with a separate patio area where you can hear the warble of the Tui and the swoosh of the Wood Pigeon!

There is also a hot tub for you to enjoy on request.
The space is private, with its own entrance, looking over the garden with a petty patio area where guests can sit separate from the main house garden. There is a twin bed option available on request (see photo). This spot is very tranquil.

Interazione con gli ospiti
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. We ran another much larger guest accommodation for many years, so we love meeting people, have lots of local knowledge and have traveled much ourselves.
