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.

Everything is to like about this place. Perfect getaway near Auckland. Stunning view, amazing bed (book the bigger room), delicious breakfast, great atmosphere and truly nice hosts. We couldn't have wished for more on our first night in NZ. Skip Auckland city when you arrive and drive straight to Karekare!

We stayed one night at the conclusion of a fairly hectic camper van tour of North Island. Travelling down from Bay Of Islands on the day we easily found it following the comprehensive directions on their web site. We had a much needed very restful night's sleep and experienced an exceptional welcome and hospitality. The facilities and the breakfast were... More
