Very quiet, natural bush type setting. Close to everything. Property is large with cabins well spaced out. Lovely stream running into beautiful gardens and ponds. Lots of birds. Waterfalls nearby. Beautiful town plenty of small shops and local produce.

On a weekend away from Auckland we stayed one night (way too short a stay!) in the "Air" cottage. The peace and privacy, the natural, beautifully planted grounds and the bonus of the well cared for animals,birds and fish within the grounds... (ducks, hens, goldfish and the 3 star status kunikuni pigs in the nearby paddock).The layout of the cottage...

What a beautiful place to stay! The grounds were exquisite offering a beautiful area to lounge around the stunning pool, spa and entertaining area. You can also swim and/or kayak in their picturesque fresh water stream on their 7 acre property. The cottage decor is fitted out with quality Indonesian furnishings and is fully equipped to meet your needs. The...

All the ambiance of a tropical resort with a true Kiwi country experience. Listening to the early morning symphony of bird song, along with visits from Chickens, Ducks and Dogs. This is a home away from home only better. The Hosts are friendly and accommodating. Since discovering Avalon in 2011 I have been back 7 times. The beautifully Thai inspired...

Stayed here for 2 nights in the 'Earth' cottage. The owner was very welcoming and gave us a free drink, which was a nice touch. Firstly have to say is that the surroundings are fantastic. The place has ponds and tropical plants with 4 cottages well placed and they don't overlook each other. There are also some studios but we...

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful but brief stay at Avalon Resort last weekend. The staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. The property is immaculate and situated in a secluded, peaceful valley very close to the main shopping center. We will definitely be back for longer next time.

Avalon is the place I always stay when I come to Kerikeri to visit the family. It's my favorite place. Peaceful, beautiful, with a giant king sized bed with functional mosquito netting. In summer I leave the doors open and sleep under the netting, in winter I snuggle up in the huge bed and work on my laptop. Self catering...

This was a last minute stay. We stayed two nights and Stephanie who checked us in was lovely. She also helped us out with a couple of hitches throughout the stay. The cottage "Water" is spacious and has wonderful balcony views. My main concern were the beds. The double bed whilst large, is somewhat unforgiving and lacking comfort. The second...

Such a beautiful place that utilises every inch of the land to create this peaceful haven. Most beautiful experience yet and will definitely be back with friends and family next time round. Lovely staff to add a cherry on top of the venue.

Great hideaway hidden off the main road of Kerikeri. Be careful not to miss the entrance as the road sign is not lit and the driveway can be tight and dark. The house was clean, tidy and modern. The staff are friendly and the surrounding ponds, trees and animals make for a very relaxing stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Avalon is a small boutique resort with self-contained serviced cottages and studio units, facing the golf course. Described as a little paradise and piece of heaven by many travellers, our 7 acre property features natural springs, waterfalls, lakes and river where you can kayaking. Our secluded valley has the feel of a nature retreat, but is close to shops, restaurants and various attractions in Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands. Set at the top of the valley, the stylish self contained cottages offer elevated views over the beautiful property. The deck, as well the large windows, allow one to be fully immersed in nature both inside and outside. With a king bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa-beds in the lounge, the unit can sleep up to 4 guests. The cosy self-contained studio rooms are located near the lush gardens around the Oasis pool complex. They sleep 2 or 3 guests and can be adjoined for families. Our studios all have an en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and a private covered deck area. ... more   less
