The Guesthouse at Taiharuru Farms Lodge
Ranked #1 of 1 Taiharuru B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We had a fabulous weekend with friends.
Accomodation and hosts were equally fabulous.
The guest house is perfect. Clean, great views, we'll equipped, fresh flowers. and more.
Raewyn and Grant delightful hosts.
The scenery is something else and to hear kiwi's calling in the night was special.
Would highly recommend a weekend/ week ( or more) at Taiharuru Lodge.
Mt Manaia  was a challenging but worthwhile walk.
Thank you Greg & Penny

Great accommodation with stunning view, very hospitable owners and loved the stay. The house is well equipped for cooking all your own food. Great area to explore and we climber Mt Manaia and loved big surf at Ocean Beach.

We were lucky enough to stay in this fantastic house for 12 nights in February. From the moment we drove over the top of the hill and saw the house and private beach in front of us we could see this place was special. This house is 5-star hotel quality down to the fresh cut flowers in the living room. Every room was spotlessly clean and the owners, Raewyn and Grant have thought of everything, including freshly baked bread on our arrival and a very welcome bottle of champagne on my birthday. Views from the house over the bay are spectacular. It is impossible not to relax here. We honestly can't think of anything that we would change. We will be back here as soon as we can. A great experience!

The best accommodation I even stayed. The house is Luxury, clean and makes you feel like home. My wife and friends really enjoy the stay. Not only the house, there is a private beach at the bottom of hill, 5 minutes walk way of guest house. Owner provides all kinds of beach toys you can imagine, snorkeling gears, surf board, 4 kayaks etc… We stay there only for two days which defiantly too short for us! Wish comes back here next time for a week long stay.

5 star family friendly accommodation, beautifully appointed, best view in New Zealand.
Private beach with equipment for kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkelling supplied - absolutely fantastic. We kayaked with a dolphin pod, snorkelled and swam in the bay and fished with great success off the rocks.
Great coffee and food in local towns Parua bay and The Deck in Whangarei Heads/Mcleod Bay.
Grant and Raewyn were perfect hosts.
We will be definitely return visitors.
Overall: faultless.

We stayed with Grant and Raewyn for a weekend in their beautiful guesthouse and we were absolutely blown away by everything about the experience. The guesthouse is luxury hotel standard, the views are unbelievable and the hosts are perfect. I felt like I was in an episode of 'Lifestyles of the rich and famous' (if anyone else is old enough to remember that show).
I can't decide if I want to go back and do absolutely nothing there - or have a real adventure holiday (they provide all the water sport's equipment you need and the walks in the area are amazing). We cannot recommend this guesthouse enough!

This is a spectacular and utterly luxurious retreat that's not to be missed. Wonderful accommodation and a very warm welcome from Raewyn and Grant. The setting for Taiharuru Farms Lodge is truly magical and will suit those wanting to get away from it all amidst following hills and un-spoilt landscape.

The view looking down to the rocky bay, fed by waves from the ocean beach, calms the mind and reminds us of our place within nature. Exploring the inlet with its diverse rock formations and intriguing caves was like making a return trip back to childhood.

This was an experience not to be forgotten. We highly recommend a stay and we will most certainly be returning.

Room Tip: All the views from the bedrooms in the Guesthouse are exquisite!
