We have travelled extensively and frequently in New Zealand. We mostly stay in lodges and B and Bs and we could not believe our good fortune when we stayed at Waimanu Lodge. It is better than the photographs on the website and the owners are super. The bed is v.comfortable, it is immaculate, furnishings top quality and is equipped with... More

A well presented and exquisite locality overlooking the picturesque Whangaroa Harbour from both the room and deck. Rooms are well presented and very comfortable catering for a small family group. Bird life in the close proximity is amazing. Highly recommended as an enjoyable and pleasant stay.

What a fantastic experience - the accommodation was superb, the view was magnificent and the hosts were certainly very obliging and helpful with giving advice in relation to tourist attractions etc in the area. This was by far the best accommodation we had in the north island of New Zealand.

My partner and 6 mths old daughter stayed at Waimanu Lodge over the last NY for a few days. The place exceeded all our expectations. The view over the harbour is nothing but stunning, the gardens are beautiful, the nights are fantastically quiet, the terrace feels very private even though you share it with the owners (who seem to not...

The website actually does a disservice to both the quality of the rooms and even the view from the more or less private terrace. Both exceed expectations. The harbour it overlooks is shockingly beautiful and a short but testing walk up to St Paul's Rock above the property offers one of the most magnificent views in the Bay of Islands.... More

We had a lovely time at Waimanu Lodge and can't wait to stay again. If you are looking for a private, intimate, romantic location then this is it. Loved the view and sitting in the spa just topped off a fantastic experience all round.

We stayed here 2 nights but wished we had planned for a longer stay. A delightful location with a large deck with pool and hot tub. We were the only guests and so had complete privacy. Owners are delightful and honor your privacy as well. Large unit that is well equipped and furnished so as to make you feel at... More

We were blown away by the high standard of everything here- an amazing view & outstanding accommodation, with so many little unexpected extras that made our stay extra comfortable. Even though you are part of the main home, the owners give you complete privacy to enjoy your surroundings. With a spa, heated pool, stunning views, big comfortable room, kitchenette (with... More

When we first walked up the steps to the deck we were blown away by the amazing view of Whangaroa Harbour. We stayed 5 nights and were lucky to have beautiful weather most of the time so we were able to take advantage of the pool and spa, but when it did rain the room was really comfortable and we...
