The Bach

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

Casually chic this cottage is like walking into the pages of a magazine. The Bach at Driftwood is a spacious, self-catering holiday cottage oozing with charm and personality with a comfy queen bed and a bedroom that overlooks the ocean. We have had so many requests for rollaway beds that we have squeezed in a small bedroom and a single bed too!


It overlooks the farm and our Equestrian Centre where there is always something going on!


If you are looking for privacy the seaward-facing side is private with a covered deck and breathtaking views of the beach. Thoughtfully designed for a relaxing and inspiring holiday, The Bach is a short 5-minute stroll from our private cove and is perfect for honeymoons. Wander the seashore or bring the boat and be at the Black Rocks in minutes. At night, toast marshmallows under the stars or listen for our resident Kiwi.

  • Huge Dvd library and HDMI connection to plug your gear into for Netflix

Self-catering with BBQ & full kitchen stocked with pantry basics. We recommend a stop at Kerikeri village for groceries on your way here.

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.
