A business trip to Kerikeri and another stay at Wharepuke Accommodation. A wonderful oasis which has developed even more since our last stay. Gardens are a large feature. A step inside the property and we are instantly in a Subtropical paradise. Cottages are nestled into the gardens with lovely verandas facing the sun.
A art gallery is on the property featuring international artists.
A print studio with a live in artist. Nontoxic Print course are run from there.
A cafe/restaurant also on the premises so no need to drive after a drink. Live music playing some days.
A short walk to the Historic Kerikeri Basin and the other way the town.

Stayed: November 2009, travelled on business

Located on Kerikeri Road, a few minutes from the Stone House and the centre of town, the Wharepuke cottages are an excellent place to stay, if you like peace and quiet. We paid $150 a night for the cottage, which included a king sized bed in the bedroom and a pull-out sofa in the lounge. We additionally had a fold-out bed provided, which the owner brought down for us.

The walk down to the cottage through the beautiful gardens was very enjoyable, even at night, where the torch on the keyring definitely came in useful!

The room included a toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge and hob, so self-catering is a breeze. That said, we ate at their new restaurant "Food" and had a great Thai meal for a very good price.

Entertainment-wise, the room included a flat screen television and a Freeview box, so there was TV to watch if you like to relax at the end of the day!

The room was spacious, comfortable and overall very quiet. I recommend sitting on the veranda of a warm summer's evening with a bottle of wine and taking in the view over the garden, which provides much of the produce cooked in the restaurant.

There is also full speed wired internet access in each cottage, as well as a wifi connection, which is a bit slower and the signal is not very good in the cottages further from the main building, but still useable.

Overall, highly recommended!

Located about 15min walk from Kerikeri, the cottages were well set out in beautiful gardens. The rooms were well appointed with comfortable beds, small kitchen (BBQ oven was outside on deck) and TV. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed.

5 Superb newly built lodges reached by winding paths through beautiful subtropical gardens. The accommodation was top class, with excellent king size beds, modern furnishings, spacious lounge, wet room, well fitted kitchen and beautifully decorated. Felt very close to nature sharing the terrace with Monarch butterflies, fantails and other birds. Overall, excellent value for money.
Tania manages the properties and was always very friendly and responsive in meeting all our needs and in regularly servicing the lodges. Mark, her partner is an artist whose paintings and prints hang on the lodge walls and in the reception area.
We stayed in the third property from the road, which is probably the quietest, although when it is completed the sixth lodge will be the one to go for if you have a choice as it is set on a hill on its own at the top of the gardens.
We walked to the Landing Restaurant, where the food was excellent and the views from the terrace were superb. We also liked the Japanese restaurant.
