I would definitely stay at Fern Lodge again. The apartement is spacious and comfortable. Well equiped kitchen. Walking distance (15min) to town and nice restaurants. Very friendly owners - and dogs! Offers a nice collection of DVDs you can watch on a cold NZ-evening.

I stayed at the lovely studio for only 1 night, but arriving on a rainy day gave me plenty of time to enjoy the property. It is a large unit which contains a king size bed + a single bed, and has a kitchen fully equipped for cooking. It has a TV and a DVD player, and you can borrow... More

Cute cottage in a lovely bush setting with a very friendly host (and very sweet older dog). Beds were very comfortable and the room was well laid out. However the shower was terrible - very high water pressure which came at you like a bullet! Very difficult to control (all over the place) although provided us with some laughs. Simply... More

Arriving at Fern Lodge after a gruelling then wonderful ride from Auckland on my rented GN 250 sloth steed I was greeted by Ray. Instantly engaging, eager to encourage me to explore the delights of the region and so very welcoming. I was excited and instantly nourished to be walked up the winding stone path through the trees to be... More

A lovely large room which fitted four of us comfortably. So wonderful to stay in such a clean place with a sunny airy atmosphere. Wonderful feeling of being up in the trees! The beds were extremely comfortable and the information we were told when checking in on places to visit nearby helped us plan our weekend. Thank you!

We stayed here for four nights in April in 'The Studio' unit and can't recommend it enough. The location was great, just ten minutes walk down the hill to Coromandel Town but felt really secluded and tucked away. The hosts (especially Ray) were helpful and welcoming, the deck out the front was great to relax on at the end of... More

We stayed here overnight at The Studio. All we needed was a bed and a shower so we didn't take advantage of the kitchen or ammenities but it was very comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The grounds are lovely and Genevieve was very helpful.

We stayed 3 nights in mid April over a long weekend. Genevieve,one of the owners, made us feel very comfortable and apologized profusely because we had booked 3 nights for the Chalet and had to spend one night in the Studio. We found the Studio was very spacious and perfect for our needs anyway, and they helped us move our... More

Ray and Generveve were great hosts, full of local knowledge and great tips on things to do. Do yourself a favor and ask to check out the studio as they are both artists. The cabin was a beautiful haven with a view surrounded by ferns. Very inspiring place. Lovely to watch the bird life too. The only place we have... More
