“This place is off the hook!!”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

We had an amazing stay at this place. The setting is true NZ in all its glory. The hosts were warm and friendly and the accomdation top notch..

Truely relax or go and explore the stunning lake and garden. So much to do from shooting to water sports..

A little gem.

We were looking for a couple of days of relaxation & found the perfect spot at Caniwi Lodge. Far enough from any town to truly appreciate the surroundings the chalet offered wonderful views of the countryside & river. Rooms were spacious & very well kept. If you are feeling fit, it's a nice walk down to the river for a spot of kayaking or alternatively stay back & watch a couple of DVD's from their extensive range (we did both).

The owners are great to chat to but at the same time will leave you to do your own thing which was much appreciated & make sure you order a couple of the freshly baked croissants for breakfast.

If you are looking for privacy but with all the mod-cons and the most breathtaking views this is the place for you.
We were amazed at the scenery and though the road in to the Lodge is a bit challenging (not good if arriving in the dark) it is well worth the trek...you wont be disappointed.
We intend to return
