Welcome to Driftwood.

We believe that going on holiday should be a fun! Your bach is ready and stocked with pantry basics, Nespresso coffee machine with starter pods, luxury linens and plenty of beach towels. We operate a self check in system so simply let yourself in anytime after 3pm, your keys are on the table. Your bach is all yours for the duration of your stay and your privacy is absolute. Please treat it as your home - put your feet up, pick some herbs or fire up the BBQ.


Although you may see us around the place we will leave you in peace and privacy to enjoy your stay unless you email or txt us for a catch up (txt is best!). We are passionate sailors and often out in the bay. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you need anything, there is someone nearby who is happy to help. 

Thank you for choosing Driftwood for your precious holiday time. We hope you love our slice of paradise as much as we do.

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.
