This was our last stop before heading back to Australia, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to end our time in NZ. As soon as I drove into the property I knew it was going to be perfect and it was. The friendly service here is second to none. They couldn't do enough to make your stay...

We had our 10 year old with us but the small "resort" is beautiful, quiet and lovely. They have kayaks for you to use and the property is very pretty. There is a small hot tub/spa on the property, just let them know you want to use it so it's hot. Same for the grill/bbq. Our cottage had a full...

The drive to the office was great - surrounded by nature and well maintained gardens. The Topaz suite was clean with great facilities including microwave, utensils, free Wifi and entertainment. The property was very peaceful and made the stay at KeriKeri pleasant. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. The stay was made even better with animals on the property. On...

Stayed one night at Avalon Resort (Topaz room). Was one of the most peaceful places I have ever stayed at. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Bit unfortunate that we couldn't take advantage of the spa and pools services at the time of our stay as it was being cleaned that weekend....

What an amazing setting, close to town, yet quiet and relaxing. Stayed in the Air cottage for two nights and was perfect. The day beds caught me out a few times! Cooking facilities were good and the indian eatery next door was fantastic! Great place to stay

What a find. The driveway leads you down into a tranquil space of cottages, trees and ponds. Our cottage was well equipped and we were delighted to find ourselves sleeping in a four poster bed. We were charmed by the attentions of Mr Duck.

Amazing surroundings, quiet, clean and very comfortable. Our first fortunate stay in a one bedroom Ensuite included a surprise live duck visit, looking in through the sliding glass door as if it wanted to be invited inside. It made for great pictures and was a lot of fun. Our second stay was in a private cottage and we were visited...

We booked in to the Air cottage for our Wedding Anniversary because of the reviews, the setting was lovely but the inside was dirty. There was skids in the toilet and dirt and hair on the surfaces. The bath was filthy. The man on reception's response "I am not a cleaner I will tell them in the morning" we tried...

Set off the main road into Kerikeri, yet close to the town centre, Avalon is an oasis of calm. Our host Willem was friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for him and he was a ready source of things to do in the Bay of Islands . Our studio was a generous size with simple cooking facilities in...

Beautiful tropical location with friendly pigs and chickens as neighbours. Swimming pool wasn't great but the apartments were clean, tidy and spacious. Very friendly staff. It's probably a 3+* resort.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Avalon is a small boutique resort with self-contained serviced cottages and studio units, facing the golf course. Described as a little paradise and piece of heaven by many travellers, our 7 acre property features natural springs, waterfalls, lakes and river where you can kayaking. Our secluded valley has the feel of a nature retreat, but is close to shops, restaurants and various attractions in Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands. Set at the top of the valley, the stylish self contained cottages offer elevated views over the beautiful property. The deck, as well the large windows, allow one to be fully immersed in nature both inside and outside. With a king bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa-beds in the lounge, the unit can sleep up to 4 guests. The cosy self-contained studio rooms are located near the lush gardens around the Oasis pool complex. They sleep 2 or 3 guests and can be adjoined for families. Our studios all have an en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and a private covered deck area. ... more   less
