Very tidy and clean cottage, fully equipped with everything you need. Klaus is an excellent host with good knowledge of the local area; he has great stories to share if you allow him the opportunity! Loved the orange groves and animals on the property. I would recommend this place without reservation. Cheers; David Durham

Relaxing family holiday
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was really laid back and a perfect environment if you’re into the simple things in life. Our 7 year old enjoyed meeting other kids in the pool and having our own kitchen was great - we rented a cabin. She also loved playing with the dog and seeing the Kunekune pigs Kerikeri is in close proximity to the lovely beaches in northland so great base for some day trips

Peace and quiet
Delightful 'moonshine' cottage placed facing the orange orchard away from the back packers lodge. Visited by friendly chickens, dog and pukekos, we visited the kunekune pigs, all wild life human friendly, possibly cupboard love. Cottage is a full size 2 bedroom home with luxury spa bath, heated towel rails, large couch, dining table and well equipped kitchen, both bedrooms had king beds that could be split into singles. Did not get to use the pool due to weather but appeared clean. If you want a quiet rural setting in easy driving distance (10 min) to tourist attractions this is it!

5/5 Excellent

Much better than a hostel!
Bedroom was small and bathrooms are shared, but this was the cleanest, quietest hostel-type accommodation ever! It is set in the middle of an orange orchard and mature garden. Truly a place to stop and relax from the hectic tourist pace
