Stayed 1 night in Lodge 1. Each unit is stand-alone, well designed and private with lovely views over the little lake on the property. Away from it all and very peaceful. Well equipped and comfortable. The stove, dishwasher and utensil drawer could do with an update, but otherwise functional. Flyspray or insect repellant is recommended. Lovely having all the windows... More

This is our second visit to Wai Oma Lodge and it is just magical, it is extremely well priced and the lodges are well equipt with kitchens and a lot of space for privacy. We will return again here soon!! Must mention the owners are lovely and very friendly.

Wonderful place to just chill out and relax. Lovely view of farm lake. Very close to Kai Iwi lakes. Free wifi, which was very reliable. Lovely hosts who are eager to help. Walks are available around the area. No, there are no keys to the front door, this is the country!

Lovely greeting from Ruby on arrival, who showed us to our room then advised she was out for dinner so would not be around. We arrived during a cold snap, and were given room 3, which had underfloor heating. Unfortunately the room stayed cold until the next morning and no other heating was provided. We were unable to get the... More

From the moment you arrive at this place you can feel it is special. Ruby is one of the most lovely host I have ever encounted (Martin your nice too). As we were Australians she upgraded us to a warmer cabin, no extra cost, which was just beautiful very secluded, this is a quiet peaceful place half hour from town... More

Cheers guys.. it makes me so happy to know my guests are happy. The weather has been even colder, so you are probably glad to be back in Aus now. All the best, and I have passed on your comments to Raewyn and Grant at the pub. More

perfect in every way. Calmness, character, value ... Got the lot. Not near any large centres but perfect to relax. Visit the coast and the kaori museum. Self cater or dine with the hosts. Breakfast delivered to lodge either cooked or toast and cereal and fruit and yoghurt!

Set around a small lake a collection of bungalows hidden in a valley. Very well done and very well laid out its hard to fault. The other reviews say it all, really. Only think missing is that they have no maps anywhere of the local area so I have enclosed one showing the path to the beach and the location... More

Excellent very relaxing and secluded sanctuaries. The surroundings are very private and the piece and quiet was wonderfull just listening to nature. We stayed in lodge 2 and was just wonderful. We took advantage of the wonderful home cooked meals @ a very reasonable price but you can cook up a storm if that's what you are into. Great facilities... More

Greeted by the wonderful Ruby on arrival and made our way to lodge 3 over a foot bridge passing eels and swans in the lake.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful grounds, charming modern units and wonderful hosts. A short walk to explore the lake and surrounds. We also enjoyed a tasty home cooked meal. One further plus is having Sky Sport available.
