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

Keith & Ann are very welcoming and extremely helpful. provide good information on the area and are enjoyable to chat with. Keith even applied his long-ago-learned German to converse with the 2 guests from Germany who were there at the same time as us. Excellent breakfast, fabulous views, great beach nearby at Piha.

Surrounded by the native forest of the Waitakere Ranges the tranquility of the Lodge is only broken by the calls of the tui & ruru and the wing beats of the kereru. The hosts, Ann & Keith, immediately make you feel 'at home', and are able to share years of local knowledge to enhance your stay in the area. The... More

A terrific isolated location nestled amongst the tops of the tree ferns with a lovely hills and ocean view. The Lodge is accessed via a very narrow and windy, but extremely lush and scenic road. The accommodation of 2 rooms and lounge room is connected to the main house, which afforded us (family of 4) our privacy during the evening... More
