When you go around the bend in our long driveway, our secluded little valley will open to you as if entering another, magical world. This little paradise will embrace and welcome you, The beautiful spring fed lakes, the waterfalls, streams and river, as well as the orchard and animals will lift your spirit. Our property is gently sloping towards the river and has a lot of character and invites you to explore and soak up the peace
Avalon has many springs on the property, mostly in ground or in the lakes.
They give an abundant flow of beautiful fresh water all year round.
The water is of a high quality and is very good to drink and bathe in.
Our freshwater pool is also filled with this spring water, and without chemicals added feels like silk on the skin.
The 2 lakes on the property are spring-fed and normally crystal clear.
Their pristine waters are a big feature for the property and attract a lot of wildlife.
Our Peking ducks call these lakes their home.
The “Oasis” relax area is situated around the pool near the studio complex. In a beautiful natural subtropical setting you can relax on the deck chairs, hammocks or sunbeds, but also have a refreshing dip in our natural swimming pool. To unwind a bit more spend some time in the spa pool or take an hour in the sauna room.
After have a barbeque with your friends or just hang out together with a drink on our big covered deck facing the swimming pool, while the relaxing music puts you in the right mood.
Our spa pool is filled with our own springwater. It is situated in our “Oasis” relax area and has a nice view over the natural pool and golf course in the distance. Have a dip in our freshwater pool and hang out in the spa pool after and watch the world go by.
Our dry sauna cabin is suitable for 3 guests and works with red heat lamps. It is really good for the aching bones and muscles after a long walk. You need only one hour to feel completely fir again. There is an extra charge for the use of the sauna.
Behind the fenced area on Avalons property you will find our New Zealand Kune Kune pigs. Very friendly and pettable, these long haired pot-belly pigs are always in for a good scratch on the back or a cookie. They have created their own pig heaven with mud ponds, lap pools and snooze trees. Make sure you visit these remarkable animals. They share their grounds with the chickens.
The Kerikeri area is very fertile and well known for it’s citrus fruit.
Our orchard produces mandarins, lemons, oranges and apples, to name a few.
Feel free to pick a few when in season.
The beautiful Puketotara river wanders along the back of our property, ideal for summer swimming or an kayak trip.
Paddle away on the safe, gentle water, downstream up upstream until it gets too shallow, surrounded by green banks.
We have 3 kayaks available with life jackets if needed.
We have developed New Zealand’s first man-made natural swimming pool for our guests to enjoy at Avalon Resort. We have created a wonderful oasis to relax in a subtropical and natural setting.
Natural swimming pools are chemical free but use a filtration system and plant life to keep the spring fed water clean and safe for swimming. You’ll be amazed at this new concept swimming pool and you will depart Avalon feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
