This is the second time we have stayed at Puketotara Lodge. We enjoyed our stay at Christmas so much that we came back mid winter. We have stayed in the cottage each time. The view is of rolling hills and bush and landscaped gardens with bird song all around. Friendly alpacas (llamas??) and horses put the noses over the fence... More

We enjoyed staying at the cottage with our two young children so much that we decided to stay an extra night. We were pleasantly surprised with how much the property has to offer. The children can easily roam around, see the animals, use the spa, (attempt) golf, or have a picnic by the river. The hosts are very friendly too!

We took our 3 children for a weekend getaway to KeriKeri, and were so delighted with what we had found! The kids were entertained with farm animals and plenty of space to run around without disrupting others; the grounds were beautiful set among a gorgeous forest. The cottage was clean spacious and modern but still had a cottage feel to... More

We stayed 3 nights in Januari at Puketotara Lodge. It's a real treat the rooms are compact but very comfortable. You can make use of the fantastic premises freely, the breakfast is 5*. It's hard to find the B&B on Tripavisor as it is not listed under B&B but at 'other'

Two nights was just not enough at Puketotara Lodge. Mutsuo and John were wonderful hosts and have created a lovely lodge that is luxurious, but homely at the same time. With the additional company of Momo and Hana (the 2 labradors), plus three beautiful smoochy cats, two llamas, two horses and some chickens (who kindly provide fresh eggs for Mutsuo's... More
