Tawa Lodge Waiheke Island
Ranked #25 of 29 Waiheke Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Stayed at Tawa lodge. Great room, fantastic views and helpful staff. Cheap as chips too - a third the rate of some apartments on the same street but with better views. Meals not included but plenty of places to eat in town which is a five minute walk. Staff in Onerora tourist information incredibly friendly and helpful too. We'll definitely be back (if they don't hike the prices after this review!). Stevie & Angie

Room Tip: The sister Punga lodge is cheaper, but Tawa lodge for the luxury

We stayed in the Aroma Del Mare Cottage at a cost of ~$240 a night and were not that impressed. On arrival we were presented with a welcome platter and breakfast for the next morning from an amazing host. Unfortunately, that's where the good stuff stopped. On day 2 no breakfast was provided, and no staff were around to ask for it. On our final morning the included shuttle to the ferry was booked to the wrong terminal, meaning we almost missed our ferry. This was particularly disappointing as they booked the ferry - so should have known which terminal to go to!

In saying that, the views were beautiful.

Room Tip: Choose the cheaper accommodation.

We stayed here for a night in one of the bed & breakfast rooms. We were charged $100 for the night and were given an amazing breakfast basket in the morning. We had access to kitchen facilities, a big spotless bathroom (with hairdryer incl.) and a stunning outdoor BBQ grassed area that overlooked the ocean. The lodge was quiet, private and clean and we felt very relaxed and left alone. It was really great value for money.

Room Tip: I think any room here would be sweet. Obviously the more you pay, the more space you'll get x

Our first stay on Waiheke was wonderful and Kevin at Tawa Lodge was very helpful and obliging. Thanks for the Antipasto treats, bottle of "Bubbles" and the continetal breakfasts.
The Lodge was adequate although a little dated, the bed was comfortable and clean towels were left for each day.
Also thanks to Dyan for the delicious afternoon tea.

Room Tip: In the corridor rooms you have to share a bathroom, also it would be very, very warm during the summ...

I wanted somewhere to relax for one night at the end of a business trip and this was utterly perfect. There was a very warm and helpful welcome, it was just 5mins walk down a steep hill to a gorgeous beach, and only 15 mins walk from the little town and 40 from the ferry. There are maps of the stunning walks you can do from the house. You can even walk to some of the gourmet vineyard restaurants along glorious beach and country paths. What more could you want?

On the down side, the room was quite small and didnt have a basin or bathroom, but this was made very clear when I booked it.
Thank you Tawa lodge for such a lovely stay on Waiheke!

Quiet spot, the cottage seemed more interesting than the motel rooms on site - we had great views of the bay, short walk to town. Perfectly adequate continental breakfast was delivered to our room the day before. We also enjoyed a special appetizer and chanpagne welcoming package, a nice start.
