    Avalon is amazing!! Loved the stream fed pool which was quite refreshing & the cottages are so modern/fancy yet cozy with a charming elegance and super comfy beds (got great sleep & at a great price) the views are excellent with tasty mandarin's growing all around........a super easy walk into Kerikeri & just around the corner from the airport too (awesome location). Thanks & Kudos to Villiam for his kindness & hospitality which made my Birthday that much more enjoyable:)

    Quality of room furniture and decoration, comfort, friendliness of hosts.

    If you owned a cottage in Kerikeri and had money to spend on furnishing it, it could well look like this accommodation. Wim has obviously put thought into the tastefully finished cottages, and hasn't scrimped on quality. He and his family are friendly and helpful hosts. Would love to stay there again.

    AWAY FROM MAIN ROAD, OWNERS WERE FANTASTIC HOSTS, LOVELY SURROUNDINGS.

    OUR STAY WAS FANTASTIC BUT, THERE WERE TWO THINGS THAT WE THOUGHT NEEDED ATTENTION!! FIRSTLY OUR CLEANERS MAY HAVE NEEDED TO SWEEP & MOP A LITTLE MORE, AND WE THOUGHT THE WINDOWS/DOORS DESPERATELY NEEDED MOSQUITO SCREENS FITTED, BECAUSE WE WERE BEEN EATEN ALIVE!! EACH OF THE 12 NIGHTS WE WERE THERE WE HAD TO CLOSE ALL WINDOWS/DOORS WHICH MADE IT EXTREMELY HOT INSIDE EVEN WITH THE STAND-UP FAN RUNNING. OTHERWISE!! A VERY LOVELY RESORT.

    We were quite disappointed in the property because it had a long twisty driveway which we were not aware of before hand. You had to almost be a mountain goat to reach the top of the driveway which was not cental to the town ,site. Our cabin did not have an information book inside and the supplies were very minimal. We were not given any instructions on places to visit etc.

    Thank you for your feedback, Gordon. We are sorry that you didn't like our property, just because of the driveway, which in our opinion doesn't require warning, if you drive safely, and it is quite easily walk-able. We have plenty of information books in our reception and we are also always happy to give you advise what to visit. It is just up to our guest if they ask or not. Also if you didn't have enough supplies, we would happily give you more.
