My first visit was more than 3 years ago. It remains *the* place to stay when in Northland. Andy and Karen are great hosts - attentive, without being obtrusive - and they have maintained their very high standards - everything is spotless and beautifully and tastefully presented. There are more rooms now, but those in the old house remain our... More

Everything perfectly decorated with attention to details, very clean room in a relaxing building surrounded by fruit trees. Filling and made at the minute breakfast, well executed dinner with attention to dietary requirements. The owners are nice and chatty without been intrusive. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely come back!

Very good value for money. The room was very nice with everything you need and expect. The food was really good with very healthy portions. The location is nice and quiet and only 5 minutes away from the town of Whangarei. I would definitely recommend this lodge whether you are staying just one night or longer.
