Josie and I needed a two night stay in Waipu, we saw the sign knocked on the door, met Rod and found we were in heaven! We met Audrey (back from the hairdressers), the welcome was fantastic, room was spacious, had a terrace with view over the bay. Rod even offered to lend me his golf clubs! Breakfast was awesome...

We stayed for one night for my partner's birthday. We found the location to be fantastic, perched up on a hill overlooking Waipu Cove with great views (unbeatable). The accommodation was excellently designed to be everything that a B & B should be, totally maximising the experience of being in such a great location - with views from the bedroom... More

Welcoming hosts, gorgeous location, beautifully appointed accommodation - it doesn't get much better! spacious and extremely comfortable room overlooking Bream Bay, then breakfast upstairs, with time to meet fellow guests. Be sure to have at least one night here if visiting Waipu area!

What a great experience. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and the hosts were nice and friendly. We also loved the cooked breakfast, with a huge selection of food! We''ll be recommending Aurora Lodge to anyone visiting Waipu. Thanks for the lovely hospitality.

Fantastic room, view and hosts. Stayed one night but wished that we could have stayed for longer. The room was light and airy with the doors opening to the sea view. There was a large ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Audrey and Rob were fantastic, with a cooked breakfast served on the deck overlooking the sea.

My husband and I stayed here two nights with two teenagers. (1 girl, 1 boy). Our room, with ensuite was superb. Large with breath taking views and bi-fold doors to totally connect with the outdoors. We ate on the patio both nights. The teenagers shared and were delighted with their 'pad'! Own bathroom/toilet, sitting area, TV etc and more stunning... More

Was there for one night on my trip to the far north. The lodge is situated above Waipu Cove and you get stunning views of the area and the bream bay! Also very nice hosts and a great room, lovely decorated. Was also good advices for food for dinner. A "must" on the east coast!

We stayed here on the first night of our engagement. We got engaged on beautiful Bream Bay. Audrey and Rod had planned the roses and champagne in the room for us and made the night absolutely amazing. The house is breathtaking, 360 views of the bay. Audrey and Rob know how to make the very most of our favourite spot... More

Our overnight stop here has probably spoiled us for all future B & B expectations. Lovely hosts, a bed you would like to take home to keep, and absolutely nothing a reasonable person could fault. A bit far from the beach if you just wanted to take a stroll on a whim, but the view from the hillside is the... More

Great experience at Audrey and Rod's house overlooking the sea at Waipu. Lovely welcome after our short drive up from North Shore, beautiful room with huge bed and fabulous views. The whole house was purpose biult about 10 years ago, so the rooms are a good size, each with big en-suite and walk in wardrobe. Nicely decorated, and lovely bed... More
