Kerikeri is a lovely area and the accommodation provided at the Carriage House is of a very high standard. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly visit again.
A delightfully large self-contained two superking bedroom apartment overlooking the river and horse pastures, 5 minutes drive from the centre of Kerikeri. Adrian and Sylvia are superb hosts - it's like going to stay with family not strangers. If you are interested in history at all, then you will love it here even more. We will definitely be back to spend more time with them :)
We stayed here for a week during our tour of New Zealand, and had a wonderful time.
The cottage has all the amenities we could want- is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Everything worked, which is not always a given in rental properties. It is near the town of Keri Keri, which has shops and restaurants, but is among just a very few houses down a longish track.
The hosts, Adrian and Sylvia, live in their house just nearby, and have been superb hosts. We could not have been made more welcome. They are full of suggestions of places to visit and have been really helpful when we've had any queries.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone.
Great place to stay, the host are just fantastic and so helpful. Ask to see the carriage collection and the old cars; you are in for a treat.
We stayed 2 nights there and I could stay even longer.
I have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend this place.
A beautiful, peaceful setting. The Carriage House is spacious and well equipped. Close to town and lots of amenities, good restaurants and cinema. The owners (Adrian and Sylvia) made our stay very special, taking us for a ride in one of their horse drawn carriages and giving us lots of local information. Set on the estuary but never far from a beach and many interesting places to see. We would happily visit again!
We stayed in this spacious accommodation in Kerikeri, in the Bay of Islands. It had all that we could desire. Our hosts couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The location was ideal for what we wanted to achieve within this area - ready access to the many islands, historical and cultural settings and fine restaurants. Adrian and Silvia (our hosts) were rightly proud of property and were keen to share with us their passion for horses, carriages and vintage cars. Adrian breeds horses and has one of the finest collection in New Zealand. It was a real pleasure and education listening to him.
Stayed for Labour weekend with my family and our dog - easy to find (literally 2 mins outside Kerikeri center), friendly welcome, clean and spacious accommodation.
The accommodation was comfortable for four adults with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a well equiped kitchen for self-catering; there are also good food options nearby in Kerikeri. The horses were friendly and had no issues with our dog (or vice versa!). We took kayaks with us and launched from the jetty on the property to kayak on Kerikeri River. Adrian and Sylvia are very nice hosts.
