Our host Willem was friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for him and he was a ready source of things to do in the Bay of Islands . Our studio was a generous size with simple cooking facilities in...

Beautiful tropical location with friendly pigs and chickens as neighbours. Swimming pool wasn't great but the apartments were clean, tidy and spacious. Very friendly staff. It's probably a 3+* resort.

The Avalon Resort is set in beautiful grounds and has a very relaxed, casual feel about it. We stayed in a studio room near the office which was well equipped and very comfortable. The owner was a great host and looked after us very well. The pigs in the field above us were native NZ pigs and liked an apple...

The grounds of this hotel are lovely as described on the website. The studio apartment we had attached to the reception was adequate size and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately there was one major deficiency and a couple of minor annoyances. The main door was a slider with no screen so it had to be kept closed to keep bugs...

We spent a night here on our road trip from Auckland to up north, found this place located amongst a peaceful and quiet mountain side with a small creek following for swimming, free wifi and kayaking available. The accommodation itself was amazing and very clean, owner was very pleasant and took time to explain everything. Great stay, very highly recommended...

We spent three delightful nights in a studio apartment. The room was very comfortable, quite large and had everything we needed. The bed was very good which is important for any stay. The grounds of the resort are a highlight with ponds, gardens, a great landscaped pool and added extras like the pigs, ducks and rabbits! All of this was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Avalon is a small boutique resort with self-contained serviced cottages and studio units, facing the golf course. Described as a little paradise and piece of heaven by many travellers, our 7 acre property features natural springs, waterfalls, lakes and river where you can kayaking. Our secluded valley has the feel of a nature retreat, but is close to shops, restaurants and various attractions in Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands. Set at the top of the valley, the stylish self contained cottages offer elevated views over the beautiful property. The deck, as well the large windows, allow one to be fully immersed in nature both inside and outside. With a king bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa-beds in the lounge, the unit can sleep up to 4 guests. The cosy self-contained studio rooms are located near the lush gardens around the Oasis pool complex. They sleep 2 or 3 guests and can be adjoined for families. Our studios all have an en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and a private covered deck area. ... more   less
