Moon Gate Villa is a great place to base yourself in the local area. My wife and I stayed 3 nights here. The location is very central to all local sites including visits to Piahia and Russell. Lionel and Rob were great hosts and Lionel's breakfasts fantastic...make sure you allow plenty of time to enjoy the breakfast its superb. A couple of nights we arrived back after dark and being winter they had turned the room heating on and turned down the bed and added chocolate treats. Great hosts with local recommendations on places to visit and places to eat. Great rooms and surrounding gardens as well as a guests lounge. You won't be disappointed in making this a place to stay. And the beds are amazingly comfortable!

Kia ora Wheels39; First - many thanks for taking the time to post a review, it's always appreciated. Yes, Lionel is on a never-ending quest to make his beds even more comfortable, and the result is slightly embarrassed guests when the oversleep; but that is our quiet delight! We trust you both returned home safely! You folk really made the most of your time in the Bay of Islands and we sincerely hope the changes since your last visit have left a lasting memory. I was great to meet you both, and we hope you return in future - and perhaps consider another stay with us. Nga mihi nui: Rob, Lionel, Whetu & Mojo (did Max put in an appearance?)

We had the absolute best stay at moon gate villa. The room was beautifully set out, spacious and clean. The bed was one of the most comfy I have ever slept in. Lionel’s breakfasts were Devine and Robs local knowledge of places to visit and eat were on point. Everything form the big sign at the front door with two little dogs very excited to see us to the wee chocolates left on our bed each night made our stay just that extra bit special. Thanks Guys, we’ll definitely be back.

Moon gate is an amazing run boutique villa in kerikeri. Rob and Lionel are perfect hosts that compliment each other perfectly. They have only a few rooms and a very quaint cottage room which have all been beautifully decorated and laid out to pamper to your every whim The grounds are manicured with native fawn and flora and an array of birds frequently visit the bird baths aswell as the numerous ponds Breakfast is another treat in this very relaxing retreat. Marsden vineyard is in walking distance and has a superb lunch Everything about moon gate villa screams luxury it’s a must for everyone looking for a quiet relaxing luxurious retreat

My friend and I were delighted to stay at the Moon gate. The best B&B ever! Beautiful setting, with every detail considered. A visual pleasure that should be featured in a Design magazine. Lionel & Rob were truly the best warm hosts giving us so much help and local information. I immediately relaxed as soon as we arrived. Breakfasts to die for – which was a great start to every day. I would love to return!
