My husband and I were travelling to the North of New Zealand without the kids for romance!! Our first stop for lunch was lovely and quaint, thinking when we reach our destination there would be more of the same........ we found welcome smiles, warm friendly people in Chris and Geoff and an abundance of beauty. Not quaint at all, everything... More

We visited 88 Lodge on our honeymoon and found the owners to be extremely helpful, genuine and friendly. They went above and beyond to make our stay truly one to remember. Nothing was too much effort for them. Offering maps and daily suggestions on how to get the most out of our sightseeing. The breakfasts were tailored to our specific... More

It is always wonderful when we are chosen as the place to be for that special occasion and you don’t get more special than a ‘Honeymoon’. Thank you for choosing 88 Lodge, thank you for your impressive words, and thank you for being such lovely people. More

Best hosts and most beautiful, serene B&B we stayed at in our 4 weeks of travel in New Zealand. Geoff and Chris are amazing and have created an incredible oasis of beauty, peace and elegance. This one level B&B is really clean with fast wi-fi, well-lighted spaces, good showers, good beds, very nice linens, and their attention to detail is... More

Wow! we are the best in New Zealand, that’s just wonderful. Thank you so much for this accolade. Our fast WiFi is so much appreciated in this world where communication is so important. These days WiFi is as important as water or electricity when staying away from home. Our special maps highlighting those magical unknown places and best eateries are... More

The host Geoff and Chris are the best memory we have from B/B in New Zealand ! We had a real problem with a rental car, and so that we didn't lose any of our scheduled trips on the bay of islands and Cap Reinga, they did all the arragements so the car was fixed ! The most warm and... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at the 88 Lodge in February. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay or asked for more from our hosts, Chris & Geoff! Not only does Chris make the best breakfast around, but Geoff went out of his way to help us plan our Bay of Islands excursions -... More

Being B&B hosts we inter-react with guests far more than would happen in a motel, hotel or self-catering establishment. Thus we are sometimes faced with extraordinary challenges like the one you refer to. Frankly it was a pleasure to face a situation where thinking outside of the box was necessary to ensure one of our guests got the most out... More

At the very end of our 6 weeks travel in New Zealand, we’ve stayed for 3 nights with Chris and Geoff. I can recommend this place as either a perfect start or grand finale of your holiday. In New Zealand we’ve stayed with numerous B&B’s and I would say that the 88Lodge was definitely one of the best places we... More

When overseas visitors plan a trip to New Zealand the little bit at the top of the country above Auckland can so easily be excluded in the wish to pack in as much as possible during the time here. But a trip into Northland and especially the Bay of Islands is so worthwhile as you found out. Because of our... More

88 Lodge is almost like a family stay with the lovely couple Geoff and Chris taking care for everything and it is an awesome location to visit Kerikeri and the area around. The breakfast could not be any better!
