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

My husband and I had a wonderful stay spending two nights at the Lodge. What a beautiful property with immaculate rooms and everything we could wish for. We loved the resident pets and farm animals dotted around the place and the outdoor spa was great even in the drizzly weather. Little touches in the rooms such as tea candles in... More

For this visit we introduced friends to it from the deep south! Once again, we were not disappointed staying there and our friends were really impressed with the Lodge, Mutsuo's breakfasts and the very warm welcome that they received.

We just spent 2 nights at Puketotara Lodge and wished it could have been more. Thank you, John and Mutsuo, for a fantastic stay! Everything was perfect -- the hosts, the Lodge grounds, Mutsuo's unbelievable breakfast feast, the rooms...we could go on and on. Little touches, like fresh flowers in the room and bathroom, added so much. The location is... More
