Bring food, drinks of choice and that's it. Our hosts Raewyn and Grant have built their own paradise in a perfect coastal location. The good thing is they now share it with discerning guests from all parts of the globe. While we live just north of this property, the rawness of the coastline continues to impress. The Guesthouse is fashioned... More

A beautiful, well decorated, private house in a stunning location with the most amazing views. My wife and I stayed there - the house was too big for us, but no matter, we enjoyed the beautiful master bedroom, kitchen, dining room and terrace that all enjoyed views over the sea. The private beach is brilliant - we had much fun... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2015. The location is stunning, looking down on the private bay. The house is well equipped, very comfortable and some really nice touches like a bottle of wine, some milk and cheese really go down well. We also had stunning weather which makes it even better. This is a great place to... More

We were here for 4 days and have nothing but good things to say; - wow - what a beautiful place - great hosts.. very warm and... More

This is a fabulous place to visit! The scenery is spectacular -- views of the land and ocean are amazing, with a very open and spacious feel. Raewyn and Grant are wonderful hosts, making you feel right at home and welcome in your new abode. There is a beach within easy walking distance and hiking trails around and near the... More

As you leave the main highway on the approach to Taiharuru you get an immediate feeling of relaxation and well being. Then you see the main house and Guesthouse come in to view and you get a feeling of luxury! Then you hear Raewyns welcoming voice on the gate intercom and you know this is going to be a great...

We had a fabulous weekend with friends. Accomodation and hosts were equally fabulous. The guest house is perfect. Clean, great views, we'll equipped, fresh flowers. and more. Raewyn and Grant delightful hosts. The scenery is something else and to hear kiwi's calling in the night was special. Would highly recommend a weekend/ week ( or more) at Taiharuru Lodge. Mt...

Great accommodation with stunning view, very hospitable owners and loved the stay. The house is well equipped for cooking all your own food. Great area to explore and we climber Mt Manaia and loved big surf at Ocean Beach.
