We had two families holiday here for a week. The layout of the lodge provides ample privacy for each family while still being in the same location. The managers were very friendly and helpful which assisted in ensuring that we had an enjoyable time. We would recommend this lodge.

The weekend was perfect. We were with great friends surrounded by lovely old world charm, but with modern comforts necessary for a winters' get away. Our host were genuinely welcoming, and exceptionally good cooks. Your kitchen garden is looking good and thanks for letting me feed the wee lamb. He was sweet.

It is such a peaceful haven where you definitely feel like you can unwind and enjoy a mixture of friendly hospitality, beautiful country side and coastal views, and a genuine comfortable stay (amazing beds). On arrival we were greeted by some new born lambs - an authentic 'kiwi'...

Lovely villa and excellent accomodation in the suite. Great to have room opening onto the deck and spa pool. Hosts were very friendly. Only improvement that could be made is the standard and variety of the breakfasts. We chose to have dinner with the hosts one night. Although it was a good home-cooked meal, we feel it wss expensive for...

Thanks for your fantastic review. We loved having you stay, and our sheep were very grateful for the attention. (So were the steers, even though they were a bit pushier). We look forward to having you stay at Kauri Villas again, when you next come back to NZ. All the best for the new baby.
