A stay at Driftwood Seaside Escapes is an introduction to authentic New Zealand living at its very best. Chic, romantic and award-winning baches, nestled into native bush with sea views and a private beach, are awaiting your relaxing seaside escape.
Spend a weekend paddleboarding in the gorgeous, glassy waters around Kerikeri. Grow tired of launching from your very own private cove? The stunning white sands at ‘locals only’ Tapuaetahi Beach are just over the hill from your beach house for reef, lagoon or wave adventures – ask us for the secret code to the gate! Later, head out in a dinghy for sunset in Te Puna Inlet. A bottle of chilled local wine is included.
This paddleboarding tour is for all ability levels from complete beginner to experienced expert and offers a unique glimpse into the Bay of Islands from the eyes of locals who love it. It is a fabulous introduction for your weekend on the water. Pack the pooch too! Driftwood Seaside Escapes is pet-friendly.
Kerikeri is a favourite destination for food, wine, outdoor and ocean adventurers with the wild Far North a day trip away and plenty right here in town to keep you busy. Dine at the Old Packhouse Market or splash out at Kauri Cliffs, enjoy an afternoon in our world class galleries & boutiques, hike through mossy rainforests or surf at 90 Mile Beach.
