A Cut Above - Gateway to the Bay of Islands

Adults-only holiday home in Kerikeri
A Cut Above is a trendy chic, almost that little bit special kinda place. A comfortable three bedroom house with modern furnishings giving you that home away from home. Situated in the country yet only 2 minutes from the Airport and 8 minutes into the township of Kerikeri where the local shopping and ‘must see’ attractions are there for you to enjoy. A Cut Above is a totally separate stand alone house away from crowds and is perfect for self isolation. An ideal location to enjoy peace and quiet for those wishing to rest and relax or a fantastic base for those that want to explore the north. We are only 2.9km from the Bay of Islands airport for corporate travellers and can offer pickup and meals as part of your stay.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers.
