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.

I booked away for my husband and I for valentines weekend. we stayed in the water cottage. it was clean and smelled fresh, romantic balcony view and the king size bed was so comfortable. Williem and his family made our stay truly comfortable and relaxing and they are all so very warm and friendly. Even the animals there are a pleasure to be around. We had booked for two nights and it wished we could have stayed longer. Coming from Auckland this was the perfect place to enjoy and romance at the same time. The spa was absolutely incredible and we had a great view of the full moon. The welcome drinks were so thoughtful the morning we checked it.
privacy awesome. will be visiting again guys soon...thanks

Room Tip: the cottages are amazing, but I did view the studios and they are just has good just alittle smaller. whichever you do choose make sure its Avalon your staying it, truly unforgettable

It was my first stay of my New Zealand trip, and it was the best accommodation I had during my 6 weeks lasting journey . The whole property is wonderful created with gardens, small lakes, a nature pool and spa, a river for a nice swim and some available kayaks made it perfect .
I was warm welcomed with a drink and got a nice cottage with my own private deck. The cottage was well equipped, nothing was missed and very stylish furnished. All was clean, very imported for me was the perfect WIFI connection for free.
The staff was very friendly and helpful .
Kerikeri is within walking distance. Everything is available and nevertheless you are living in a picturesque hideaway. For kids its nice too, because of the very friendly pets like goats ,ducks, little pigs and friendly dogs. I can really recommend it.

This was our first trip to Kerikeri and we stayed in one of Willems 4 cottages named "Earth". The cottage was one of four, spacious clean and provided all the facilities you'd expect to find in a self catering resort. The resort was conveniently located for Kerikeri but we spent most of our 3 days in the nearby town of Paihia where all the ferry boats, helicopter rides and water sports activities were and the town was also a short boat ride to the town of Russel.
The Avalon resort, although not ideally located for us was lovely with its very rustic feel. Although we did not use them, they had an outdoor spring water swimming pool, communal BBQ area and a central location where you could relax with others if you so chose. The owner, Willem, was helpful in guiding us to lovely walking areas and tourist drives. The tranquility the Avalon Resort has to offer is lovely and I would certainly recommend the resort but Kerikeri itself had much less to offer than Paihai so if we come to the region again we would probably choose to stay in Paihai.

Room Tip: Choose the town you stay in carefully as Kerikeri lacks the activity some may crave.

The staff at Avalon really are the making of the place. Their friendliness is something other motel/hotel operators could take a lot from! Great value for money considering all the activities we were able to do. Would highly recommend to anyone needing a relaxing getaway!
