My husband and I spent 3 nights at Pawhaoa Bay Lodge. It was an impressive lodge to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is about 45 minutes from Russell. It's very remote. This is the place to "do nothing" but relax and get in touch with nature.The drive there was very scenic, beautiful farms and hilly coastal views of the bays. The lodge was beautiful.
Bill and Claire are true nature lovers and it shows in their garden. Wow! It's like the Garden of Eden! We were surrounded by beautiful flowers, plants, trees and birds! They love birds so you wake up to beautiful sounds of birds chirping and singing every morning. And the gentle waves of the bay. We have the bay all to ourselves!
Every evening before dinner, Claire makes some awesome appetizers. We have a cocktail (non-alcoholic for us) on the beach watching the sunset. Then she makes us a 3 course dinner that is equivalent to that of a 5-star restaurant!
Bill and Claire were exceptional hosts. We had lots of fun and laughter with them, hearing about their travel adventures. We highly recommend this place for those of you who want to get away from the city stress and get in touch with nature. You feel like you've had a week at the spa! Totally rejuvenated! Wonderful experience.
