We stayed with Geoff & Chris for 10 days, and thoroughly enjoyed our time with them. They were very welcoming & friendly hosts, and were extremely helpful in pointing us in the right direction to see the many beautiful sights of North Island. We stayed in their suite, which was lovely, and more than equal to any of the other... More

This is a beautifully appointed property in a quiet garden setting. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The attention to the detailed requirements of guests is exceptional from breakfast to ensuring that guests have information needed to enjoy all surrounding facilities and trips. A delightful stay with welcoming hosts.

It is our normal practice to send a personal 'Thank you' when a guest does a review. You have not 'signed' the review and we can not identify you from the content of your review. Therefore please accept our regret that we can not do this on this occasion. Never-the-less that does not stop us from extending a big thank... More

Geoff and Chris were amazing hosts! Each morning we were greeted with a beautiful made-to-order breakfast from Chris with fresh croissants, wonderful yogurt parfaits and beautiful fruit. Geoff would also greet us with a hand drawn map to help organize our daily activities! These two know how to make their guests feel welcome and insure they see all the highlights... More

You were most definitely in adventure junkie mode whilst you were with us. St. Paul’s rock is scaled by few and to get around behind Rainbow Falls takes nerve and determination. But at the same time you enjoyed the wonderful Wainui Bay (Wedding Beach) which is peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. The two sides of the Northland coin. And then off... More

Hospitality and facilities were so good I stayed an extra few days. The bedroom was easily comparable to a luxury hotel but the grounds were off the scale. You started the day with a delicious breakfast of your choice with many home made products grown in the garden or locally sourced.

Our breakfasts and gardens are just two of our points of difference and we are so pleased you so enjoyed them both. Many tourists only come up to Northland for 2 nights only giving one full day to ‘do’ this lovely area of NZ. We know you so enjoyed what this region has to offer that the extra days were... More

88 Lodge is an oasis of peace and tranquillity on the periphery of Kerikeri, a lovely little town located in the North of North Island, near the Bay of Islands. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, and at 88 Lodge you will receive a warm welcome from Geoff and Chris, who are careful to take care of and anticipate every need.... More

Our Majestic Suite is not only named so because of the Majestic Palm in the gardens nearby but also because the suite is Majestic in itself. So pleased to read your review and know from this that you so enjoyed the suite and your stay with us. We are not the cheapest but as you say, pay that little bit... More

We had a majestic stay in the majestic suite. The room and the home was as described. Excellent quality furnishings and surrounding. The bed linen was quality Egyptian cotton. It demonstrates that if you pay a little more for accommodation you can get excellent value for money. Our hosts were charming and most welcoming as well as being helpful concerning... More

With apologies: This response should go with the review “Oasis of Tranquillity” and the response on that review should go with the review titled “Majestic Stay”. Something happened when doing the responses and Trip Advisor do not allow us to ‘Manage’ the responses to correct this error. So many of our guests just love the tranquillity of our location. We...

Situated in a beautiful garden setting edged with established specimen trees (even an old Judas tree!) and extensive lawns this is a special environment to enjoy while away from home. Our bedsit styled substantial room with a lounge seating area which opened on to a private terrace (even a hammock) was light and sunny. The bed was great and the... More

We were both in need of a trip away from Auckland and I wanted to surprise my hardworking partner with a nice break. We couldn't have chosen a better spot. Geoff and Chris were perfect hosts, making sure we were comfortable, recommending and booking restaurants for us and giving us safe driving directions. Great fry up for breakfast, beautiful grounds... More

My wife and I enjoyed a 3 day visit with Geoff and Chris in late October. Their renovated home was lovely with beautiful gardens lovingly tended by them both. They were gracious hosts who served us sumptuous breakfasts and provided excellent touring advice along with beautifully drawn maps. Our bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom quite modern.

The combination of a private room with access to the main house provided for plenty of contact with the generous hosts as well as private times in our well furnished room.
