The owners, Chris and Jeff, really care about their guests and making their stay a special experience. The highlight of our stay was the amazing breakfast and our private outdoor spa pool. On our last day Chris gave us a tour of their beautiful gardens. We highly recommend 88 Lodge.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Our Queen Palm Suite is the only suite in Kerikeri which comes with it’s own PRIVATE spa pool. So many of our guests who have booked this suite comment on how lovely this suite is with its large bathroom and king size bed but the crowning glory is most definitely the spa... More

We, an Australian couple touring the North Island in November 2014, stayed for a couple of days, and really enjoyed the orderly hospitality, pretty gardens, Chris's wonderful breakfasts and Greg's very useful travel help. Chris is a dynamo, and he and Greg help drive the Kerikeri festival: part of their active tourism promotion to grow the appeal and capacity of... More

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

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.

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.

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
