We have just stayed at Nikau Lodge recently and had a fantastic experience. You could not find a more friendly host anywhere. The owners are exceptionally helpful and offer great advice on local attractions and dining. We had difficultly booking a dolphin company and Jane was very helpful phoning back and forth to the dolphin company for us to assure it was going ahead.
The rooms are clean and large with superb views of the ocean and mountains. The mountains were particular spectacular during our stay as they were snow covered. You are provided toiletries and towels as well as robes. The beds are also SUPER comfy.
The breakfasts are wonderfully delicious, but make sure you have your appetite! The hosts like to fill you up!
There are nice little touches that make this place fantastic to stay. Complementary wine and beer in the fridge and Quentin baked some biscuits and brought some to us.
Overall I highly recommend this place. Great facilities and great people!!!
(Their dog 'Jack' is as friendly as the owners!)
