Kerikeri - Ferns Bed and Breakfast: Scottish Hospitality
We have been several times to the Bay of Islands and always stayed in Paihia. But during our last trip we found accommodation in Kerikeri, a nice quiet village just 20 minutes drive from the 'hustle and bustle' of the Bay.
Ferns Bed & Breakfast is situated just outside the village and offers a GOOD rest and a GOOD breakfast. We had a spacious room with a door to the deck, overlooking the garden with ferns. In the morning we had a sumptuous breakfast. For dinner we were surprised by the number of restaurants in Kerikeri.
Most of all we did like the (Scottish) hospitality of our hosts Jim and Penny.

Beachside Holiday Park: On the water
Well you can take the name of this one literally. Our van was about 50 cm higher than the beach and as the flood came up, so were our worries. But we stayed dry. The sites on this campground aren't very big, but the facilities are good.
There's a camp store, cabins, caravans, bbq area, kayaks, boat ramp, a playground and internet.

Carneval Ocean View: Carneval Ocean View
This is a lovely place to stay. The owners are lovley and have plenty of knowledge of the area.
They cook you a lovley breakfast, they try and cook what ever you like - you just request and they try to come up with the goods - remember its not a restaurant but her kitchen is very well equipment
We had the garden view room which was lovely - nice size and a great view of the garden. If you walked out of the room you could see the see and sit on the grass and watch the world go buy - which i did a few times. Very nice and relaxing
If I returned I would stay here again. You are made very welcome and you

Where to stay in the Bay of Islands.
For the budget conscious, backpackers are the best bet. Most of the hostels are in the main town of the Bay of Islands - Paihia. In 2004 I stayed in the Saltwater Lodge (a five star bakpackers) in that town (see my Paihia page). However, on King Street, there are lots of other backpackers. Lodge 11, is the YHA/HI one and another highly recommended one is Peppertree Lodge, which I stayed at in 2006. Pipi Patch has a swimming pool. There are two main bars on King Street in front of Pipi Patch and Saltwater Lodge. Both are fine spots for a cold beer at night and usually have music (live sometimes) and Saltwater Cafe has karaoke on some nights (grimace).
