We were so impressed with this property. We stayed there for one night passing through Kerikeri and we will definitely be back again. It's a great concept - an older motel that has been meticulously renovated and redesigned. The spacious units have been beautifully designed inside and out. The decor is awesome and makes for a really enjoyable stay. I...

We stayed here peak travel time of new year for two nights. With a forest as a backdrop, the place was new, relaxing and felt like home. To top it off, Bill, the owner kindly offered us a ride to a local restaurant for new year's eve dinner and celebrations. Would definitely stay again.

We reserved this in advance and were very pleasantly surprised by it, especially given the price. The apartment we stayed in was 2 bedroom, and had recently been completely redone. It was very nice. We could park right in front, so it was convenient. Location was easy to find and convenient to attractions. Owner was there and was very helpful.

Bill and his wife have taken an older motel and made it modern and comfortable. There's free self-serve laundry and internet, kitchenettes, and a nice pool area with grill for guest use. Kerikeri is a very nice town with some great walks, and all the conveniences (like a supermarket) are very nearby. My only hesitation in recommending the place is...

We stayed one night at these beautiful studio apartments. Along with friends we booked a total of five apartments. The apartments are all newly refurbished, clean bright and spacious. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. Easy level walk to Kerikeri town centre. We will certainly stay at STAY on our next visit to Kerikeri.
