Myself and my husband stayed here on our honeymoon in September of this year. We were spending three weeks travelling around NZ and our time as Kerikeri really stood out - thanks to the fabulous accomodation, the wonderful host Williem, the beautiful setting and the lovely feel of the Avalon Resort.
We were staying in one of the cottages and were greeted with a lovely bottle of wine and flowers in our cottage on arrival. We absolutely loved everything about Avalon resort and the surronding areas. We found the Williem was an excellent host - pointing out areas of interest, suggesting walks, booking boat trips for us, recommending places to eat. He really goes out of his way to ensure that everyone feels welcome.
We found the town of Kerikeri was absolutely perfect for our first few days in NZ and to unwind after our Wedding - lots of lovely restaurants, beautiful walks and lovely cafes. We actually enjoyed staying at Avalon so much that we spent most nights back on our deck, drinking a few glasses of wine and listening to the peace and quiet.
We honestly couldn't recommend the place enough... it really is a little piece of paradise.
- 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
