We spent 4 nights at this gorgeous B&B in April. We arrived late but Mike and Chris were ready and waiting for our arrival. We were the only guests while there which gave us lots of freedom in the guest area of this purpose built house. Mike & Chris are wonderful hosts and happy to help with bookings of cruises...

Excellent location, fantastic modern home and even better guests. Chris and Mike were the perfect hosts and looked after us well. Very knowledgeable of the area and the full cooked English brekkie was great. Private location, rooms offered nice seclusion from each other and were well furnished. Couldn't have asked for more and will be looking forward to when we...

Cannot say enough about this wonderful B&B. The setting is stunning, up on the hill looking out over the water. The garden is beautifully kept, and provides a lovely backdrop when you're in the pool. Our room was a great size, spotless, and had a fab bathroom (the wonderful shower deserves special mention) It was the perfect setting for a...

We stayed just the one night and wished we'd booked for longer. Wonderful location, couldn't ask for more, our hosts were so helpful and friendly. The pool is such a welcome addition to a B & B in Kerikeri.

We were greeted by Chris and Mike as soon as we got there and shown around the place. Basic amenities like bread and butter were available for breakfast which made it really convenient for us to rush in the morning. The place was immaculately clean and the private swimming was a cherry on the top. The views were to die...

Service was impeccable and discreet- we could interact with hosts as much or as little as we wanted (separate entrance to the guest quarters), but they were always available with if we needed them, booking day trips, advice on road routes and restaurants, serving great breakfast, chatting about the activities of the day; We loved that the accommodation was away...
