Kerry's place is spacious and comfortable, with the beautiful Opua just down the road, and Paihia and Waitangi just a short drive away. We enjoyed our stay!

Great place, great location, great hosts. The space is roomy, airy and well equipped. The location is just out of Opua & Paihia, so away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to enjoy the beaches and facilities of these two Bay of Islands towns. Your hosts are very friendly and well informed about the area offering good advice and suggestions. Thanks Kerry.

My family and I stayed at Kerry's place for 2 nights from 9 to 11 Oct 2017. Kerry wasn't around but her mother Jo welcomed us. The place was very clean and had all you needed for a comfortable stay. The private driveway meant that you could park your car for free, safely and move your baggage easily to and from the house. The house was within a short drive to all major attractions. Of course, like all places in NZ, driving is a must to see all the sights. Jo was very warm and friendly. She provided us with a lovely breakfast of cereal, yogurt, milk, juices and some crackers. Very thoughtful touches. I would totally recommend her place. Thanks Jo, for the hospitality.
