Great facilities; Grace and Jonty were excellent hosts; and the food was lovely and served early upon request. We also appreciated the short nature walk at the rear of the property. The lodge was a shining beacon on a lonely highway.

Had a great stay at this friendly and well-appointed accommodation. Property is an old farm, very well maintained, with four or five guest "cabins" and a main house for dining and other recreation. We stayed in their "stable" cabin, a sunny and up-to-date suite with...More

We spent two nights here. It is a wonderful lodge with private cottages and lovely grounds. The owners were very friendly and were excellent cooks. We highly recommend eating dinner at the lodge. We have only positive comments to share and we recommend it highly!

Love this place. A restored ranch house and outbuildings make for a rustic country experience. The main lodge offers a sunny deck and rustic rooms. Wifi is only available in the main lodge. Hosts Jonty and Grace were friendly and helpful. No nearby tour offerings...More

About
Description
Experience true New Zealand hospitality. Waipoua Lodge is a little piece of luxury etched in history where you can experience true New Zealand hospitality whilst travelling Northland’s Twin Coast Discovery Highway. More This circular route provides two diverse coastlines which offer in just one region, so much of the natural environment which is our beautiful Aotearoa. Nestled on a ridge overlooking the vast Waipoua Forest – home of the ancient and iconic kauri trees, Waipoua Lodge offers relaxing, warm and authentic New Zealand hospitality and the perfect location from which to explore the beautiful and often undiscovered Kauri Coast - Pathway to Northland and Naturally New Zealand’s Ancient, Eco & Cultural Destination. With the mixture of yesteryear in the old Kauri lodge, home to artefacts from the Kauri logging era, to the four acres of garden and tranquil bush walk surrounded by pasture and forest you will be inspired and all within an easy 3 hour drive from Auckland.
