Keith & Ann are the best hosts you could wish for. The property and the standard of room and breakfast is superb as many have said. If you love the outdoors and getting away from it all without compromising on a bit of luxury, this is for you. Highly recommended :-)

We loved this beautiful place and had wished to stay longer. The hosts are lovely people and we felt so welcome. The breakfast was very good, the pool was hot, the chocolate cake delicious, we had a good sleep and everything was neat. Also the little one loved all about it, especially the many books in the cosy room. Karekare... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary. This is the first time we've stayed in a B&B locally (we live in Auckland surburbs) and wow it was very comfortable and warm. It felt like a home away from home. The natural surroundings were amazing, we did a bush walk nearby and finished off with a beautiful spa... More

Staff are rude and unwilling to assist. Breakfast is gross. The sheets are old. Pillows are smelly. The bathroom was filthy. I had rashes and itchy all over my body. No internet. TV doesn't work properly. Will not return.

Thank you so much Keith and Anna for your warm welcoming! Keith guided us for a fantastic walk , it was really a pleasure to do it with him. The house is amazingly shaped inside the forest and the spa which is outdoor and always available is really cool ! I advice everybody to experience this lodge. Julie and Jerome

My partner and I came here for a peaceful night together and it was perfect! Very warm hosts, they were very considerate and obviously take great care and attention to detail when looking after their hosts. The bedroom and lounge were very comfortable, warm and clean. Everything we needed was provided. The bed was huge and comfortable. The house itself... More

Difficult to get to, but very nice accomodations. Margaret Hosts were pleasant but seemed a little preoccupied with other concerns. Breakfast was OK but nothing special. We ate at the RSA (soliders organization) in Piha and enjoyed the experience. Jim

The lodge is in a beautiful location, surrounded by foliage and was the perfect respite after a night of travel from the U.S. and a day exploring. The view to the beach at sunset was stunning (see photo). Ann & Keith are a lovely couple that were incredibly welcoming. The room was clean, comfortable & we slept like babies. Bathroom... More

We stayed 2 night in this lovely warm lodge. Keith and Ann are truely warm hosts and make your stay relaxed. After a nice walk a dip in the hot tub is we rewarding. After our stay we're certainly ready for our trip to the Coromandel and the rest of the North Island.
