A real find in the heart of Kerikeri

Stayed 3 days in the cottage and found it to be top notch, beautifully laid out, luxury linen and amenities, perfect for a relax.. Setting was amongst the gardens and off the main road so very quite other than the birds chirping which I enjoyed. I found the hosts very helpful and they made extra efforts with extra caring touches which made us feel welcome and well looked after. Definitely recommend this accommodation, so glad we chose it for ourselves ;-)
