The peace, beautiful scenery, superbly finished cottages. Efficient service.
The room was rather cold and in normal winter weather would be chilly with the small electric heater. And no electric blankets.
Ideal peaceful location close to amenities Immaculate luxurious private accommodation surrounded by nature.
Did not book for long enough.
Willem the owner went out of his way to see that we were well lokked after, a great holiday, thanks Willem
Nothing, everything was perfect
Amazing place to stay. Owner was very friendly and made you feel instantly at home. The resort is very close to the center of Kerikeri but hidden behind trees so also feels like a hidden paradise. Beautiful scenery, feels a lot like Bali and they keep chickens, ducks and dogs. Amazing stay, can't wait to go back. Would recommend very highly
Idyllic location, set in a beautiful valley full of native species and wildlife. Wake up to chorus of bird song. Pet ducks and hen visit each morning and the two black pet dogs make great company when you are sat out on the verandah. Gorgeous rooms, fully equipped for self catering. Wonderfully comfy bed with scrumptious linen. Powerful hot shower and lovely towels. Hot tub with lots of bubbles to use at any time. Masseur on hand to ease any aches and pains. Lots of books and a vast library of DVDs to borrow during your stay. Wonderful hosts who are always on hand to help and answer any questions. I booked for one night but stayed for three! It is a real oasis and highly recommended.
I loved everything.
The location and surroundings so close to town. Quiet, rural, serene.
Road in a bit bumpy.
Avalon Resort's location was ideal. Each self-contained unit had privacy but with wonderful views of rolling hills, beautiful gardens with a pond and stream complete with ducks and hens which visited you each morning. The unit was extremely clean and comfortable. It was close to Keri Keri shopping centre and a bakery and cafe were just a stroll up the driveway. Our host ensured we had everthing we needed. Having breakfast on the the deck with the morning sun streaming in and with the sound of the stream below set you up for the day. Of all the places we have stayed at we rate Avalon one of the best.
A beautiful setting, greeted with a glass of wine, 4 poster very comfortable bed, local information provided, wish we could have stayed another night. Definitely recommended.
The location is so wonderful..Willem the person who runs the resort is such a warm person that u feel u r staying at a friends place ..hospitality scores 10 on 10 because of him..All in All Avalon is a gr8 resort for a relaxation break .Its an awesome place for an animal friendly person as u get to c ducks,dogs,hens,pigs moving around the resort & r so friendly..Me & my spouse luv this place & wld wanna keep staying here whenever v go to KeriKeri.
Location, quietness and grounds
Excellent facilities, great host and the best atmosphere!
From the moment we arrived Willem was friendly and helpful. Our cottage was beautiful - clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. This is definitely a place that we will stay again and recommend to our friends.
the location was deceptive at first - appearing to be in the middle of town! However 300 metres down the drive and you could have been in the middle of the countryside! Fantastic cottage, and friendly helpful owner - not to mention the chicken that greeted us on the doorstep!
We weren't there long enough!
How secluded it felt... the tone of the rooms were brilliant and very comforting
The deck with table and chairs outside was lovely. And the place is very peaceful. Liked the dvd library.
We stayed in one of the studios, and I think we would have enjoyed it a lot more in summer as the studio was freezing, and there was just one small, inadequate heater. Additionally, although it has a kitchenette, this is minute. It includes a fridge, microwave and sink. There are also hotplates which can be plugged in, but if one was to do that, there would be no worktop left. We borrowed a dvd, but the chairs in the room were not exactly comfortable to sit in while watching it! Also it was much further from the centre of town than we had expected because the place has an extremely long driveway. So even when you see a sign saying Avalon 50m, it is actually considerably further to the studios in particular.
