ABSOLUTELY AMAZING IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE

Review of Avalon Resort
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Apr 2024
I don't even know where to start with this amazing place as there is so much to rave about.
First of all I was a bit hesitant going down a long driveway into the wilderness with my young son, but as we drove down we saw beautiful rivers and wildlife.
When we arrived at reception the manager was so kind, I had made a mistake with my booking and he did everything to rectify my mistake.
He took us up to a villa which looked nice from the outside but wow when we walked in I was absolutely amazed. This place was absolutely beautiful, it has a fully equiped kitchen with beautiful cutlery and crockery, it also had two beautiful and comfortable single beds and a stunning loungeroom with a beautiful bathroom and then a big room with a large bed. Topped off with a beautiful balcony where you could hear and see birds everywhere. The place was immaculate. It made me wish I had booked in longer just for the sake of it.
We went down to the pool, which was stunning with rocks etc in it and a amazing spa but it didnt end there. There was also a toilet, sheltered seating area, pizza oven and bbq. Like seriously this place was better than 5 star places I had stayed before.
Avalon resort should be very proud of what they have created because it is just a magical sanctuary.
I will be telling everyone about this tranquil resort if you are looking for somewhere affordable, beautiful and close to town this place is it.
Thankyou Avalon resort for a one night stay we absolutely loved. We will be back for sure.

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…

Room tip: Bakery at the top of the driveway superb for breakfast

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.
