About Us

Te Whare Ma
Jane & Stephen

Jane and Stephen moved to Kerikeri in 2016 when the allure of tropical weather and a country lifestyle proved too much and they waved goodbye to Wellington City.

Jane is a chef and has always wanted to operate her own Bed  & Breakfast. She hails from the beach town of Whakatane and has a love for fresh ingredients (especially those from her garden), flavour and entertaining. 

Stephen has a background in textiles and has travelled the world during his career.

They have extensively renovated the house specifically to suit guests needs

Te Whare Ma is situated in rural Kerikeri. It boasts a large swimming pool, spa and sauna as well as pristine gardens.

Jane will prepare a sumptuous breakfast each morning available in the dining room or weather permitting outside on the deck.
