Truly gorgeous! Our guests love the beauty and attention to detail - world class without the price tag! The Bach at Driftwood Paradise can be yours for a night or linger longer, we have clear night skies and native bird life. Stunning oversized cottage for two ( there is a very small bunkroom for kids ) Breathtaking views over our own private beach.
ONLY SUITABLE FOR 2 ADULTS AND 2 KIDS not 4 adults (you need to add the kids to your booking as EXTRA ADULTS)

The space
Our boutique bach is very special & a million miles from a basic holiday home. Set on the hill in native bush overlooking a white sandy beach and the beautiful Bay of Islands. Immaculate and charming with high-quality Wallace Cotton bed linens & a laid back luxury interior. Small bunkroom for kids at an extra cost.

Outside, relax on the recliners, enjoy the fire pit or BBQ under the stars. You are just a short walk through the bush to the private cove where you will find dinghies, kayaks and hammocks. There are fresh herbs to pick and a fire pit with a stock of dry wood and marshmallows waiting.

Guest access
Please enjoy wondering around the property , the beach is a short walk down the hill.

Other things to note
The last 15 mins of the drive is on a gravel road , it is well formed and though some of the most beautiful farmland and private estates in NZ.

Driftwood Seaside Escapes | driftwoodnz Vanessa and her family are serious travelers and sailors. After 8 years at sea they have made Driftwood Seaside Escapes, 16 acres on the Purerua Peninsula, their home and business. Offering unique insight into authentic & nostalgic Kiwi life through their gorgeous accommodation, which is designed to be your ticket to affordable laid back luxury. Being travelers too, the Owen family realised that the feeling of being "at home" is very important when traveling, whether you are still in your own country or on the other side of the world. Each of our cottages is both your home away from home as well as a reflection of our travels. You can see the years spent in France and the Caribbean reflected in the interior design and tropical gardens, making each private bach a very personal space that also reflects the unique and casual Kerikeri lifestyle, whilst making guests feel immediately relaxed and at home.

We are travellers too - look out for us on Barefoot, our yacht, in the bay - but if we are home we do enjoy meeting our guests.
