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

We used this as a base for our recent weekend training camp with the NZDBA at lake Ka Iwi Lakes. 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.

The villas are located in a large rural location featuring a lake and wonderful landscaped gardens. We stayed in a delightful studio overhanging the main lake with huge outside patio giving peaceful views of black swan, ducks and numerous other birds on the water. Very helpful introduction from Ruby on arrival. Access to our lodge was via a boardwalk over... More

We have rent a small pavillon/house, very attractive modern architecture. It is romantically located together with other small pavillons around a pond. Lots of flowers, total private garden with terrace, nice and spacious rooms. The settlement is far from any bigger town and choice of shops and restaurants thus extremely limited - but you are close to a beautiful lake... More

This was my second visit. It's a beautiful setting with separate lodges overlooking a lake. Very quiet and peaceful so one could definitely retreat here. Only a short walk to the Kai Iwi Lakes and to the coast through paddocks. There's a spa and plenty of DVDs for wet days or lazy evenings. Bicycles to use. Great hosts and Ruby... More

This little oasis was recommended by iSite due to all accommodation in the area being booked out due to a major weekend event. Didn't know what to expect as only had a brochure to go by but certainly wasn't disappointed. Underfloor heating made us cosy warm, a good selection of DVD's for those rainy nights and peace and quiet with... More
