That little boutique place in Kerikeri… 


STAY KERIKERI – Premium Accommodation – Relaxed, refined and reserved for you.


The owners of STAY KERIKERI, Bill and Paula Schwass are veterans of the Hospitality and Luxury Lodge industry having previously owned and developed Northlands Iconic “Cavalli Beach House Retreat”.

Bringing their experience ‘ to town ‘ ,  Bill and Paula have now created a boutique and contemporary midrange product for Kerikeri, winning the ‘Best Redeveloped Accommodation’ section in the 2017 New Zealand Hospitality Awards.

‘One style suits all ‘  has been studiously avoided and this boutique product has been very well received and supported by returning guests who enjoy a  ‘one of a kind accommodation’ adding a little spice, style and difference to their STAY.
