A lovely old-world, well preserved and nestled in an amazing range of landscapes Greenmantle Estate is a perfect place for a relaxing, intimate stay. Letizia and Ralph, the owners of the property, are very gracious hosts and make the accommodation the gem that it is. Immediately upon arrival on the cold rainy night they made me and my friends feel... More

We booked the Greenmantle Estate from London for my husband and his groomsmen for their pre-wedding accommodation and preparations and also for our wedding night - it was incredibly handy to our wedding venue, Southward Car Museum. The service we received right from the very beginning, when we made our booking, all the way through until it was time to... More

We spent a lovely relaxing night at Greenmantle as a surprise for my husband's birthday. It is so nice to be able to travel such a short distance from Wellington to somewhere so beautiful and peaceful. We stayed in the Pohutukawa Suite which is set apart from the main lodge so makes it very private. It is also just down... More

We stayed one night at Greenmantle and had a lovely relaxed evening being pampered by the owners of the property. Greenmantle is an old home in extensive grounds between Paraparaumu and Waikanae. Tiger Woods stayed here when he played at the Links Golf Course some years ago. Major additions were made to the rear of the house some years ago,... More

We had our wedding at Greenmantle and it was simply perfect. The venue, accommodation, food, setting and facilities were all just exactly what we dreamed of. The setting is peaceful and the grounds are beautifully manicured. Overall a stunning spot.

Pure luxury at Greenmantle From the warm welcome by Ralph & Letizia to the personalised menu and amazing food. A tour of the nikau palm forest. We thought the dinner could not be surpassed but that great breakfast got very close. The beautiful surrounding, fresh local produce we were even invited to the saffron harvest! No hesitation in recommending to... More

From an almost royal and enjoyable welcome, we enjoyed every second of our stay here. Luxurious accomodation and the perfect host & hostess provided memorable days for us. If you ever find yourselves at the Kapiti coast, Greenmantle Lodge is the place to stay. Great value for your dollars ( If you can afford it )

Letizia, Ralph and Jeanette combined as a excellent team and amazing hosts to create for us our perfect wedding day. The organisation and behind the scenes management enabled us to enjoy our day with our guests and even the threat of a tropical cyclone did not daunt our hosts - a marquee was found and erected at the 11th Hour....

Ralph and Letizia were the wonderful hosts for our wedding in February 2014. Without launching into a review that sounds too over the top, everything went perfectly. The personal pride that Ralph and Letizia took in every stage of the event, from booking the venue through to breakfast for the whole family the morning after the wedding, was superb. It... More
