Lovely room with quiet deck overlooking beautiful garden. Private bathroom, use of the kitchen, what more can you want ?
The bedroom and bathroom were as shown and as described and were comfortable. On the occasions that we saw Dionne she was very helpful and informative.

Peaceful surroundings, pleasant room, nice bathroom, friendly hosts. Thanks Dionne and John!
We are now reporting on our fourth host and unfortunately was not up to the standard of others. Public rooms in the house had strong animal odours and hygiene in the kitchen was somewhat lacking. However our bedroom was clean and confortable and bathroom facilities were quite acceptable.Dionne had great views on world politics. Disappointed.
Hi Elizabeth. We are very sorry you were not happy here. We do clean up the house, kitchen, wipe down all the counters, and appliances, and make sure there isn't a sink full of dishes, dust, vacuum the entire house, and clean the house before each guest. I am not really sure what you are referring to my kitchen not being hygenic/clean, but this is a homestay and not a upscale bed and breakfast, so we do live here and use the kitchen also, and we allow guests to have kitchen privileges in our private home as a courtesy, and also use our wifi for free.. We are trying to fill the market between one of the crowded backbacker places, where the kitchens are crowded, filthy and so noisy, you can't sleep....which generally is about 75.00 per night and up for a private room in Kerikeri, and an expensive bed and breakfast, that typically costs twice as much as our place. We feel that our bedroom that we rent out is nice, and comes with a private deck and a good bathroom, and is good value versus an upscale bed and breakfast or lodge, and I am glad you were OK with that.. My husband and I went around NZ for 3 months, so we do have some experience. And please read the review guidelines again, as it goes against the Airbnb terms of service to add content to reviews unrelated to the actual reservation (e.g., political, religious, or social commentary). I did not need that and it wasn't very nice. Thank you for reading this and my best - Dionne
Anything to Say ! Good
The accommodation that Dionne & John provide is excellent: a comfortable and cosy bedroom with a fine view of a very charming garden, and your own ensuite bathroom. Out on the Kapiro Road the house is wonderfully quiet and it's a super place to drive back to at night after spending your day exploring the delights of the Bay of Islands.
Very comfortable room with own bathroom facilities in lovely house and garden setting, a few kilometres from the town of Kerikeri. Dionne and John were welcoming and helpful. I very much appreciated having my laundry washed and dried, and being able to come and go as I wished. The location was close to the historical sites I wanted to visit and not far from the coast.
good value for the money. good point for a nite to jump up north to cape. a little far and tricky to get in and out of kerikeri for food/eating.
spacious room and comfortable bed. having a car is a must.
Dionne and John are great hosts, room is nice and clean, good location, car is a must. Would recommend staying there
