“Exceeded all expectations.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

We stayed at Tahi Lodge for two nights 28th & 30th January 2012 & it was the perfect weekend get away. Accommodation was lovely, had everything we needed and more with the most amazing breakfasts delivered to our own courtyard area overlooking the sea. There is plenty to do and see in the area - we really enjoyed the walks. Lauren & Warren Kitchin are great hosts. Would recommend to all and hope to return for another summer getaway.

Tahi Lodge is actually a private house at the highest point in Snells Beach overlooking the bay with panoramic unobstructed views. The rroms (we stayed in Matakama) are very modern and well equipped and have a private outside sitting area with a view. Breakfast is delivered to your room by Lauren and it is local and homemade fare. Lots to do in the area. We stayed two nights and had very good meals at both The Salty Dog Pub (upscale pub food at good prices) and fine bistro dining at Matakama Kitchen.
This area is not inexpensive by any means and we found accomodation in this area more than anywhere else in NZ for the same quality, but it is worth it to stay in the area and have the view.

Stayed March 2012

The perfect getaway, upon arrival we were warmly greeted with home baked bread and biscuits, plus provisions for breakfast and a huge bowl of fresh fruit. The apartment was wonderful and accommodated 4 adults easily. The location, view and whole experience was fantastic. Great hosts and would thoroughly recommend.
Thanks, The Ward family.

Tahi Lodge was the most perfect place to spend Christmas. Spacious, beautifully and comfortably decorated and furnished, immaculate, well equipped, many thoughtful touches eg fruit & breakfast items.A quiet area in easy reach of local shops, beaches, walks etc. Very welcoming and helpful family on site but also felt comfortable and autonomous. Very highly recommended.
