We stayed one night at these beautiful studio apartments. Along with friends we booked a total of five apartments. The apartments are all newly refurbished, clean bright and spacious. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. Easy level walk to Kerikeri town centre. We will certainly stay at STAY on our next visit to Kerikeri.

Thanks for the lovely review Jane! The two bedroom apartments are perfect for a family group - a groovy and gorgeous little home away from home and a great base to explore the North. See you next time! Kind regards, Bill and Paula :-)

Our one night stay here was delightful. Recently renovated, the studio was well equipped and tastefully appointed. The bed was really comfortable. Our host was really helpful, booking a local restaurant for us and providing us with freshly ground coffee in the morning. Overall excellent value for money.

Third stay at this motel spanning 12 years. The second was 12 months ago when renovations were just beginning. In October of this year (2016) my third stay was witness to the scope of renovation. Wow! The place looks great - tasteful, restful and great value. Well done!

At the recommendation of locals we found "Stay Kerikeri". Delightful. A very welcoming arrival and the units have that lovely cute Bach feel. They've done a great job of refreshing these units and establishing tropical gardens. Extremely conventionally located this motel is a gem and well priced too.

As a sales rep I needed just the basics but I got treated like a 5 star visitor. Stay felt like home, Stay Kerikeri is the perfect name. I felt like one of the family, welcomed and not just another customer. I will be back and the Thai takeaway was a great suggestion. See you in a few weeks Thanks...
