Kerikeri, New Zealand
A great opportunity to purchase this Bed & Breakfast Accommodation Business and enjoy a wonderful lifestyle in this popular tourist town.
Just a few kilometres from the bustling town of Kerikeri in the beautiful Bay of Islands the lodge is only 20 minutes drive from Paihia with its magical beach , water sports and sea cruises. Kerikeri is a vibrant fast growing town in the Bay of Islands with much historic significance, many vinyards, art and wine trails and wonderful restaurants.
The lodge is set in 6 acres, three acres of sub-tropical water gardens. There are a series of interconnecting ponds that lead down to a large deep pond with a waterfall. This is an ideal spot for a quiet, picturesque wedding with plenty of lawn to erect a Marquee and lay out seating.
There are 3 acres with heavy duty post and rail fencing also making this property ideal for the horse enthusiast. There are 8 horses grazing at the moment. The land also lends itself to the growing of olive trees or grapes, due to the north facing aspect and good drainage.The garden has a huge array of sub-tropical plants, a small orchard of citrus fruits, plums, fig and apple trees. There is also a large 'Bog' garden , a favorite with Pukekos and various other native creatures.
The house itself looks out over the Inlet with distant views from the back deck and upper bedrooms of the River and surrounding countryside.
There are 5 bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms, two with their own dressing rooms. Three on the first floor and two on the ground floor.
The lodge has two lounge rooms, one with open plan dining room and kitchen, the other larger room is heavily beamed with wooden flooring and is also used as a Wedding venue and Meeting/Function room.There is a circular drive way and large outbuildings to accomodate several cars, a two car garage and large greenhouse.
Jeff and Linda have enjoyed a great lifestyle for the last 5 and a half years , providing luxury accommodation and running their own Wellness Health Clinic, enabling them to acquire their NZ residency. From the onset they have run the business at a leisurely pace, in keeping with their intentions of retiring within the next few years. However, with the professionally built web site attracting international visitors from around the globe, there is plenty of opportunity to increase the turnover and expand the business.
Do please call or email with any enquiries. We are more than happy to answer any questions and explain further the layout of the house and business operations.
