“The Greenwood Lodge is Magic!”
Reviewed 31 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed at the Greenwood Lodge for a week with my husband. I only wish we would have had a boatload of friends and family to share it with. The house is beautiful and perfectly appointed. Tuk who is the local manager was incredibly gracious, welcoming and helpful.

We were amazed to find ourselves staying right on a "hot beach", the sand was actually hot and the water warm. Very, very unique experience! I highly recommend the Greenwood Lodge as well as the owner's Bach in Hawkes Bay. We were lucky enough to stay at both!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 13 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our stay was for a family wedding and Greenwood Lodge was amazing. The weather was perfect, the lake, sunsets, mountains were beyond description, and we did need to move. Grocery shopping was done at 7.30 am so as to get back to the Lodge and enjoy. We love the style of the Lodge, and so much space. It was the perfect place for precious family time, and of course the lake access is perfect. We swam, paddleboarded, water skied in front of the Lodge every day. Yes it was a special treat to stay there, but so worth it. The management from the first point of contact to meeting the onsite Manager was great. So very helpful and obliging. Excellent communication. We all slept well,including one baby.
Thank you Greenwood Lodge lodge to both the Management and Owners.

“A fantastic home away from home”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Our family stayed at Greenwood Lodge to celebrate our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. A beautiful warm and welcoming home, full of home comforts. Every little detail is taken care of. Just turn up, relax and enjoy the beautiful lake front view. A very special home.

“Our home away from home”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Our stay at Greenwood is always absolutely amazing. Tuk is a wonderful host, to arrive on a rainy day to a cozy roaring fireplaceon our first trip was just perfect. The house is fantastic and the little things have definitely been thought about - right down to milk, eggs fresh fruit and milk being there for us on arrival. We have booked again 11 months in advance because our visits are always excepetional.A beautiful house where some great memories have been made. We look forward to our next visit.
