The view is the kind you'd expect from a Ritz or Four Seasons except it's your own private paradise. I'd describe this...

Having stocked up with supplies on day 1, the remaining days were spent with a balance of activities (golf, kayaking, walking,), relaxing (reading, sleeping in every day!) and exploring Northland.The guest house is complete in what it provides and it is all 5 star.

WoW!!! We were amazed by our stay (2011) at the Taiharuru Farms Lodge! First of all, the owners of this beautiful property, were the nicest and most gracious people ever. Secondly, the house was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, and so comfortable. It was so easy and relaxing to just stay and explore the property, walk down to the beach, or...

Bring food, drinks of choice and that's it. Our hosts Raewyn and Grant have built their own paradise in a perfect coastal location. The good thing is they now share it with discerning guests from all parts of the globe. While we live just north of this property, the rawness of the coastline continues to impress. The Guesthouse is fashioned...

A beautiful, well decorated, private house in a stunning location with the most amazing views. My wife and I stayed there - the house was too big for us, but no matter, we enjoyed the beautiful master bedroom, kitchen, dining room and terrace that all enjoyed views over the sea. The private beach is brilliant - we had much fun...

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2015. The location is stunning, looking down on the private bay. The house is well equipped, very comfortable and some really nice touches like a bottle of wine, some milk and cheese really go down well. We also had stunning weather which makes it even better. This is a great place to...
