We must state that we didn't actually stay in Ragdoll cottage but the other new cottage on the property called Black cat cottage. I submitted this cottage with all the details to trip advisor but have heard nothing back from them hence the review under Ragdoll cottage.
We loved it here. Anita the owner is very welcoming and the cottage was fabulous. 2 double bedrooms, very well appointed kitchen with open plan lounge and diner. A lovely terrace outside well shaded with barbecue facilities and a good size bathroom with shower. Everything was really spotless. Cottages are situated on a 10 acre block with paddocks which have sheep and alpacas and a couple of horses. Anita breeds beautiful Ragdoll cats (funny that!) and is happy to show any new kittens plus the older breeding cats,
There is a huge hot tub which whilst shared with the other cottage is private as are the cottages themselves. For self catering these are fabulous and whilst about 10 minutes from the town centre we liked the location as the vineyards with excellent restaurants are near by..
Kerikeri is a cute town and has 2 great supermarkets so self catering is not a problem. We also felt that the cottage was very good value for money. Can't wait to go back we wouldn't stay anywhere else.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ragdoll cottage is a self-contained stand-alone cottage set in pretty subtropical gardens well back from the highway. Plenty of off-road parking. It has two bedrooms, a full kitchen, a lounge room, toilet & bathroom, and a conservatory. Sleeps up to 6 people. The conservatory has dining and a gas BBQ, and is handy to the huge 66 jet massaging spa pool. This is a quiet location, on the main highway North, and very central to all the top part of Northland. A great place to base your stay. Surrounded by pretty country side, there are friendly chickens, sheep, and lambs to hand feed, and a wee miniature horse, named "Jellybean." And also the pedigree Ragdoll Cats to cuddle, and kittens (in season). Children are welcome and we have a play area with trampoline, swings, and a netball hoop. Clean, quiet and very comfortable. Suitable for two couples, or a family. The spa pool is a favourite with all ages. A clean and comfortable modern cottage. Great value. Folks that stay come again, and again. ... more less
