Find usLocation and surrounds
Kerikeri is located on the western edge of the Bay of Islands. Its location among orchards and vineyards offers a relaxed alternative to the tourist centre of Paihia, and more convenient access to northern beaches and day trips to the north, such as Cape Reinga.
Moon Gate Villa is hidden at the end of a 100 meter driveway, just off SH10 and from the main road into Kerikeri. Bay of Islands airport is 3 minutes to the west, and we are only 2 minutes into Kerikeri village.
Look for our road sign just 500 meters past the Makana Chocolate Factory & cafe. We offer free transfers on request for guests arriving by air into Bay of Islands airport (KKE), or Kerikeri coach station, in conjunction with your check-in time.
