"Vanessa's place is a slice of paradise we were lucky enough to enjoy. A lot of love, attention and care was put into this bach, and it shows! We were blown away by the serene atmosphere and stunning views of the ocean, and the peace and quiet are only occasionally pierced by lovely birdsong! Easy communication with the host. The place was spotless and had all the amenities and comforts you might need. Highly recommend it and hope to be back."

Driftwood is just a half-hour drive from the boutique village of Kerikeri, in the glorious Northland of New Zealand, there is nothing at all between us and the village but rolling hills and farmland. The last 10 minutes are on a well-formed metal road. We adore the drive here from Kerikeri, the breathtaking views, the gazillion dollar estates hidden behind walls and gates, and some of the most beautiful farmland in the country.
