I would highly recommend staying at the waterfront french cottage at bream bay lodge. My boyfriend and I stayed there this past weekend for our 4 year anniversary and it was absolutely idyllic. The hosts Grant and Annette were fantastic, you could not ask for friendlier more welcoming hosts- I was a little skeptical after reading some of the earlier... More

Wow, what a hidden treasure this place is... I absolutely highly reccomend to all! We stayed here for only one short night to get out of the hustle and bustle of Auckland and we couldnt have picked a better place to stay. For starters, we were greeted by a couple of warm and welcoming smiles from Annette and Grant. They... More

We stayed in the french cottage and it was just lovely. Very elegantly decorated with nice linen and decor throughout. Grant gave us a lovely welcome and tour of the grounds. Kayaking was a highlight and we checked out the local bird life. The rescue animals on the property was a highlight for me being an animal lover and they... More

Welcoming host. When we arrived he showed us around the grounds and gave us the tour. The lodge is right on the estuary with beautiful pohutukawa trees lining the shore. The water in the estuary is not very deep at all and was pleasant to swim in, although we'd recommend reef shoes. The ocean and beach are just a short... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the french cottage at Bream Bay Lodge for a weekend away. It was lovely and peaceful which was just what we were looking for. However if the cottage next door had been occupied it would have been much less private (they are right next to each other, extremely close with the deck and windows... More

Welcoming hosts. Ocean suite was heaven as sunrise quietly entered the room from a silhouette of mature pohutakawas. OMG ! White robes to the spa. Kayak to the sand dunes to picnic and delighted by sightings of the rare fairy terns On the way that our hosts had informed us about. And the cinema was such a treat and we... More

My partner and I stayed for a night at Bream Bay Lodge. When we turned up we found out we were the only guests (as they'd had a cancellation) so we were upgraded from the Ocean Suite to the Garden suite at no additional cost. We had a tour of the grounds and were shown where the kayaks were, the... More

We stayed here one night on our way from the Bay of Islands to Taupo. The accomodations were extremely clean and luxurious. The cottage we stayed in had glass windows all around making it light and sunny.We felt like we were staying with wealthy relatives. We used their kayaks to go across the cove to the beautiful secluded beach on... More
