From the moment we arrived Lionel and Rob' s welcome, exemplary care and personal touches set the tone for our (too short) 3 day stay. The villa and grounds are stunning, our room was spacious and luxurious and Lionel's breakfasts were delicious and offered such a wide variety of options, all prepared and presented with his warm smile and enthusiasm....

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend 2 weeks in the cottage at Moongate Villa. The Villa is perfectly located just outside Kerikeri and within easy driving distances of all the spectacular sites of the North Island. Lionel creates and Rob delivers great healthy breakfasts to the cottage and there is a great little porch to enjoy them....

Not much really to add to all the existing rave reviews, although we did have the extra experience of staying one night in the Deluxe suite, then the Cottage for two nights when it became available. Both were splendid, and the isolation and calm of the Cottage was particularly special, with its private verandah. Lovely, warm pool - although tiny,...

This is a beautiful house set in a wonderful tropical garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was relaxing and Kerikeri is not as busy as Paihia and it is much more attractive. We were well looked after by Lionel and Robert. The house is spotlessly clean and our room was pleasant and spacious. The bed was really comfortable...

We stayed 2 nights, wished we stayed longer as it was a very relaxing property and is a good starting point for the north island. 5 star quality property for regular prices. Lionel was an excellent host and made a scrumptious breakfast.

The long driveway from the main road with it's beautiful greenery and gardens emanated peace and tranquillity. The large grand front door was most inviting and drew me into a stunning long hallway with a beautiful water feature which furthered the theme of peace and tranquillity. The décor, the large tropical gardens with a swimming pool and a luxurious bed...

Very peaceful. The bed and the room was luxurious - best sleep ever. The gardens are simply beautiful! There a several quiet places within the extensive gardens that you can tuck yourself into and 'hide-away'. Thank you to Rob and Lionel for being such wonderful hosts.

Hi Lionel, I am still missing the yummy breakfast you kindly served along with your homemade muesli and freshly squeezed orange juice. You have nailed the exclusive boutique accommodation experience! I knew from the moment that I perched on the luxurious bed complete with high quality linen that I was in trouble. You see how would I be able to...

We stayed here in Dec 2016 in the cottage. What an amazing place, the house and garden are fabulous so tropical and peaceful. Just sitting in the garden watching and listening to the birds was very relaxing. Lionel and Rob made us very welcome. Breakfasts were lovely carefully prepared by Lionel. There is a supermarket and restaurant within about 20...
