Lovely host Toni, in a fabulous setting. Looked out our windows to views the rest of the world would be jealous of. Only a 3-day gettaway, but managed climbing a mountain, swimming in natural thermal pools and catching a fish with a handline thrown off a rock at the beach. Wish I could have stayed longer. Toni gave excellent insider... More

A great place to stay to explore Great Barrier Island. Great views. Close to restaurants but you can also be self catering. Warm and comfy Toni was very helpful. Great fishing. Good coffee and pies at Claris Texas.You do need to hire a car to get around.

I spent 2 nights there with hostess Toni. She made us feel really welcome in her natural relaxed manner. The room was warm, clean and had all the basics including a radio, cooking facilities, shower, extra towels, comfy bed, and a view of the sea and balcony to enjoy it from. No TV but we didn't need that as there... More

We got a really great coupon deal that included 2 nights accomodation and flight from Auckland. So I'm not sure what the cost is for only the hotel. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised by this place. Toni was a great hostess. Room was very clean, bed good, shower good with good pressure and good hot water. There was a... More

Several reviewers have mentioned Samson the dog, and we met him too. Unfortunately there was another dog staying when we did and we watched the two of them bail up the other guests barking and growling. Then it happened to us too, with the visiting dog growling and Samson snapping at me.I am used to dogs and this was the... More

Thank you for your great ratings. I am truly sorry about the incident with Samson. I can understand you were concerned, not knowing the dogs well. Mela, the other dog, was only staying with me for 3 nights, while her owner was away and she is definitely a very yappy dog. This unfortunately wound Samson up and, as I tell... More

It began with the Dolphins escorting us across from the Mainland by Ferry and I knew I was headed somewhere special and I was definitely not disappointed. 5 days and nights staying at Manuka Lodge with host Toni and dog Samson. Fantastic self contained room with Awesome view over Shoal Bay where sleep is a natural thing. Toni catered for... More
