Vibrant and dynamic, Kerikeri is the commercial heart of the Bay of Islands, regarded by many as the Lifestyle capital of the world.
More than eight thousand people now call this area home and what a place to come home to! World class beaches, championship golf courses, deep sea fishing, sailing and more than one hundred islands which dot the horizon. Luxury properties cling to the water’s edge and high above, spacious family friendly properties enjoy sea and sky with a backdrop of native bush . No wonder the Bay of Islands now shares second place as the most visited tourist destination in New Zealand behind Queenstown and equal with Rotorua.
From fine dining, to alfresco cafe eating, the Bay of Islands is literally the seafood bowl of New Zealand, offering silver service dining to farmer’s market food and everything in between.
Kerikeri is the commercial centre of the Bay of Islands and Harcourt’s Bay of Islands Realty is located in one of the highest profile locations in the main street. Service industries that support tourism and new business are enjoying new growth riding on the back of the real estate frenzy in Auckland.
New business visa applicants continue to enquire about businesses and lifestyle options in the Far North, seeking the tropical warm climate and coastal environment offered in this part of the world.
