Our coastal hill cottage with private beach

The Bach at Driftwood is a self-catering holiday cottage that exudes charm and style. With a comfortable queen bed and an ocean-view bedroom, it's perfect for a serene getaway. We've added a small bedroom and a single bed to accommodate your needs.


Overlooking the farm and our Equestrian Centre, this cottage offers a unique vantage point to watch the action. Privacy and stunning beach views are guaranteed on the seaward-facing side with a covered deck.


Perched on a hill, this bach is the embodiment of coastal elegance. It offers unrivaled seaside beauty, a private beach, and breathtaking views as the sun paints the sky in shades of orange and pink over the boundless sea.


On the terrace, you can start your day with a coffee as the first rays of sun dance on the water's surface. In the evening, dine under the starry sky, savoring the sheer allure of coastal living.

Designed for couples it also has a small single bedroom for an extra person!

Is it better to travel than to arrive? Robert Louis Stephenson thought so! Your journey to Driftwood starts with a pitstop in Kerikeri to provision for your visit - trust us, you won't want to pop into town once you arrive.


Next, journey through some of New Zealand's most breathtaking coastal farmland. The last 15 minutes is unsealed but you do not need a 4WD to get here. Take it slow and enjoy the view. Your adventure starts here.

We love being out on the water and have safe moorings and a ramp at Driftwood. We encourage you to bring your boat and explore. Russell is just 10 minutes blat across the bay for dinner at the famous Duke of Marlborough hotel or be at the Black Rocks in minutes.
