My husband and I spent a wonderful night at Waimanu and we were totally amazed! If you are looking for moments of true joy, peace and relaxation Waimanu is the place that tick all the boxes! The views are sensational and everything is offered on a high standard of quality. We highly recommend a glass of wine watching the sunset... More

We chose to stay at Waimanu based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed, it is just as everyone writes. Judy and Shaun had thought of everything down to sunscreen and insect repellent...good dvds, novels and recent quality magazines. The accommodation was excellent and the hosts very friendly. I have been recommending this venue ever since and have... More

My wife and myself just spent two days at Waimanu and could not fault it. Not that we were looking for fault, but the whole experience was perfect. This truly is a luxury bed & breakfast and is everything that it says it is. The room was outstanding, with excellent fittings & fixtures. The decor is so welcoming and the... More

A slice of paradise. Fantastic place to stay, wonderful views, excellent hosts. Told our grown up children it was the only place to go for a special treat. Wow. The Lodge is situated high up on the side of hillside, the area is well planted in native fauna and we were able to observe pheasants and native birds from the... More

We visited Waimanu Lodge last week and didn't want to leave. It was luxurious and spacious, and we felt like we were on our honeymoon again. The views were breathtaking, and there was so much to do in the area. The accommodation could not have been better. Judy communicated with us and answered all of our questions before we came....

We stayed here for 5 nights up to March1st. It was a wonderful relaxation - we used the pool, the hot tub, the BBQ. The room was spacious, the hosts were charming, leaving breakfast in the fridge overnight including homemade yoghurt. They also provided homemade biscuits during the day, chocolates , and marshmallows! We walked up to St Paul's Rock... More

We stayed at many places during our travels throughout New Zealand but this accommodation wins hands down. Shaun & Judy have thought of everything to make their guests as comfortable as possible; bathrobes, books, magazines, DVDs, local information, maps, binoculars and even marshmallows! Free wifi, guest laundry and late check out time were also welcome considerations. Breakfast (left in the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in September, after a couple of nights at Kauri Cliffs - and regretted the time spent at Kauri Cliffs. This place is only 20 minutes away from Kauri Cliffs - so an easy drive if you plan to play golf there. Very hard to beat the price difference ($150 vs $1,900 per night at KC)... More

A few days in one place at the end of a four week trip to South and North Islands and we picked the perfect spot. Relaxed, fantastic view, great facilities esp the pool and spa. Locally a trip around the harbour is hard to beat. Our hosts were particularly helpful. A spot to be reccommended without a doubt.
