What’s not to like about this lovely property…… First class.

Review of Avalon Resort
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Mar 2024via mobile
What’s not to like about this lovely property……
I brought my italian wife to the bay of islands to show her kerikeri and russell and paihia, i'm a kiwi and been working in uk for 28yrs... Hadnt been up North for +30yrs...
The owner was super helpful for the recommendations for local restaurants and activities. Our own bungalow was surburb and we got an upgrade. Feeding the chickens and ducks that are on site each morning, became usual routine which was thoroughly enjoyable. Set among bush/amazing gardens with a couple of ponds, although we didn’t use the facilities down by the office (spa, plunge pool, sauna, laundry)….
Definitely would return if up in the bay of islands again in future, we paided £486 for 7 nights
Only possible negative point, the rooms/bungalows weren’t serviced daily. We stayed for a week and had to ask for the room to be serviced on the third day…
Date of stay: March 2024
Room Tip: Bakery at the top of the driveway superb for breakfast
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

The room was spacious with ample kitchen and bathroom supplies, the private deck is a great addition. The proprietors went out of their way to make sure our stay was as we expected. Smart TV’s are a bonus but please guests remember to sign out of your accounts when you leave

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottages. The location is close to the township, but you feel as though you are in the islands with the amazing plants and land. The staff are amazing and very accommodating. The cottage is nice and big, with 1 room and 2 day beds in the lounge. The kitchen is a nice size and has most of the necessities. We have been enjoying the patio eating most of our meals outdoors. It is such a nice and relaxing location a perfect space for a family or couple.

Beautiful beautiful quiet setting. The property is stunning. Beautiful plants and gardens. Our cottage was the Air cottage, it was really nice and private and had stunning views. The furniture was nice with a Bali vibe. Very thing was really clean and comfortable. Thank you for hosting us will definitely recommend staying here.

The small apartment for 2 people was adequate and the setting in a peaceful valley was beautiful. The Resort is close to central Kerikeri however the approach is down a long, narrow, winding road which has very limited passing places. In the dark we found it quite unnerving. We are glad to have tried it but wouldn’t return.

Reviewed 15 January 2021

I booked with them over the phone and asked for email confirmation but that was never received so I had to ring to check. On arrival, the greeting was very lack lustre from a rather sloppy host. The room was very tired with mouldy curtains, lights that didn't work, chairs that were broken, a table that was broken and other irritations.
This Lodge has the most amazing setting but is so neglected it is a real pity. It has a 4 star rating but there is no way it is up to this standard.

Room tip: I wouldn't recommend any room if they are like the one we had.
