My daughter and I stayed for two nights at the Cliff Edge (her birthday gift) with Peter and his pooch Charlie and this will remain as one of our most memorable trips away. Over the course of our stay we met three couples from United States, Australia and Upper Hutt. Dinner was such a magical treat - what a privilege... More

We stayed at the Cliff Edge in the Bay of Islands close to the end of a 2 month trip to Australia & New Zealand in Jan & Feb 2014. I am late in writing my review but even months after our visit, we keep recalling our excellent stay with Peter Meier & Charlie, his charming doggy. Peter's property &... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here. We were joined by 3 other couples whom we'd never met before. The relaxed homely style allowed us to be comfortable and was not claustrophobic like a standard motel or hotel. The weather was not favourable with wind and squally showers however the views were spectacular when the sun did shine. The... More

We arrived at the lodge after driving to the wrong street which we thought was the correct one. Whops. We were met at the door and welcomed. We were shown to our room and advised dinner would be at a certain time. When dinner was ready we came to the dining room to have it beautifully set up for myself... More

Found this gem by accident and I am glad we did. We stayed for 5 nights to get some much needed R&R and were not disappointed. It is a great base for exploring the north of NZ and especially the Bay of Islands. The room was generous, clean and well maintained, the view was majestic through the large high windows.... More

Cliff Edge and Peter Meier combine for a wonderful stay. The property itself is in a stunning location, with magical views of water and the Bay of Islands. The room was generously sized and comfortable with all the amenities that you would expect. Guests have the use of what would have been the living room of the house - again... More

For our first trip to New Zealand we knew we had to track down Peter Meier. Peter owned a restaurant with accommodation in the Hunter Valley in NSW, Australia. The food at his restaurant, Casuarina, was so spectacular that my husband and I would drive from Sydney to the Hunter Valley just for lunch. Peter has found himself a piece... More

We booked into the Cliff Edge for the night at the last minute (due to a kind babysitting offer from the in-laws). What a perfect escape. The Lodge has some of the best views I have ever seen, and is located handy to all the sights of the Bay of Islands. The only room we could get had less of... More
