Secluded, casual and all yours. Driftwood Seaside Escapes accommodation is tucked into a private estate on the Purerua Peninsular just outside boutique Kerikeri. With picturesque secluded coves, beautiful walks, horses and a mooring for the boat. Help yourself to the fruit trees, walk your dog along the beach or picnic in the vineyard. All self-catering with BBQ's and fire pits, plus great snapper fishing out the back door!

We are a short drive from the village of Kerikeri for historic sites, excellent vineyards, boutique shopping and Farmers' Markets. Further afield, the Bay of Islands, Cape Reinga, Ninety Mile Beach and the sand dunes at Opononi all make a fabulous day trip.


The Homestead is a stunning family villa with magnificent views out to sea, entertainers' spaces, boat mooring and private coves.


Sitting high on the hill, The Bach is a spacious studio cottage with breathtaking ocean views. Perfect for romantic escapes for two.


The Hammock is a spacious studio cottage tucked into native bush with intimate sea views. Perfect for romantic, secluded escapes for two.


Glamping cabins nestled into a private cove for the perfect Kiwi summer experience, with a dash of luxury. Loved by couples and families.


We are locals, adventurers and ocean-lovers with oodles of local know-how to share. Check out our local guide, if you can tear yourself away from your bach at Driftwood!


Our family found our home from the sea at Driftwood Seaside Escapes after a lifetime of sailing that spanned continents. Read our story here.
