Award-winning, sea views, luxury linen. The Hammock at Driftwood is self-catering accommodation nestled by the water on a private peninsula, just outside the boutique, vibrant village of Kerikeri. Experience the nostalgia of a true luxurious, barefoot Kiwi getaway & fall asleep above the ancient native bush, listening to waves lapping on the shore.
“The Hammock is a super comfortable and stylish cottage, beside the main residence but still with great privacy. The walk to the beach was no trouble for us and we enjoyed exploring the coastline at low tide (use bug spray on your ankles if outside at dusk!) We did find the water in the bay was very still, and so not the most appealing for swimming. I’m sure this would vary depending on tides and wind directions. The location was great 15 minutes into KeriKeri, but as others have said, once you arrive, you will want to stay and enjoy the birdsong and peaceful surroundings. We were thrilled to have heard the resident Kiwis calling (and then other Kiwis from around the bay returning their calls). A very special experience, for sure. Three nights wasn’t enough. We would happily return and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway in an absolutely beautiful spot.”
Luxury with total privacy! For those who love coastal holidays, fishing trips with the boys or girls with their horses, this stunning lifestyle block is fully equipped. Four bedroom one Bathroom, parking for vehicles, toys and caravans. Stables and arena. Exceptional views from the top boundary over the Te Puna Inlet. Up to two dogs permitted, no cats as Kiwi Zoned. Great location, a few kms to the Kerikeri Cruising Club boat ramp & Marina, 12kms to cosmopolitan Kerikeri!
“Great space with various activities (spa, tv, pool table and land to wander around). Warm due to the heat pumps, kitchen was well kitted out with great pots, pans, amazing huge oven, coffee machine and large fridge. Lovely secluded spot. Excellent communication upon booking. Thank you.”
Located in close proximity to Kerikeri, in park-like gardens within a small cattle & sheep farm. The cottage is well set up for two people but can accommodate four using the pull out sofa in the living area and using the bathroom through the bedroom. Separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, coffee maker, Wifi, TV. Well located for guests to experience the best of the Bay of Islands. Garden/farm walk by arrangement. Continental/cooked breakfast ingredients available for guests to prepare themselves.
“We stayed as a family of four adults for 2 nights to attend a nearby wedding. The cottage was really private and cosy. We were impressed with the comfy beds and crisp cotton sheets and the well equipt kitchen. It is a very compact 2 rooms; a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and kitchen with under bench fridge, dining/lounge space sofa sleeper. The porch overlooking the garden and orchard provides outdoor flow and gives added space to relax and enjoy the natural flora and fauna including a family of quail! Ken and Viv were lovely welcoming and accomodating hosts. There were so many extras like home made muesli and marmalade, homegrown fruit and a coffee machine. We wholeheartedly recommend this place for a couple plus or minus one or two family members as the sofa sleeper makes a second comfy bed. Would stay again.”
