From the time we stepped off the ferry from Auckland and to be greeted by Chris.. and then to return by air 5 days later..was a truly delightful experience...with Teara spoiling us with her culinary skills as well The Lodge is very well appointed and to marvel at the night sky unimpeded by street lighting..was truly magical Great Barrier Island...

お部屋の居心地も、窓からの風景も、お料理も、そして何といってもクリスとテアラご夫妻の温かい自然なおもてなし、そしてとにかくチャーミングなリリィ!、すべてが素晴らしくって最高の滞在でした。トラブルが生じた際にも、実に親身に対応してくださり、とても助かりました。 また島全体における本来の自然の姿・空気に触れる体験は、身も心も洗われるような清々しさ、神々しささえ感じられました。 特に自然の中に沸いている温泉は、秘湯気分も味わえてお気に入りです。 自家発電のため、夜は早々に消灯しますが、満点の星空は圧巻です。 A comfortable room, scenery from a window, lovely cuisine, a hearty welcome by Chris and Teara, and then very charming Lili ! All was the best fantastically! In case of trouble, I was given very kind support by them. In the island, we can see and enjoy the original state of nature. Particularly, the hot spring... More

Great Barrier Island is fabulously beautiful but as a destination everything is pretty basic and remote. Mount St. Paul Estate is about the least basic as it gets and a very comfortable and welcoming oasis. Don't expect top end luxury but do expect a very well appointed, clean and well kept establishment, with really excellent meals. It is run by... More

When my parents (visiting from Germany) and I returned from our trip to GBI and the 4 days- / 3-nights-stay at Teara's and Chris' respectively, there was only one question to ask ourselves to assess the whole experience -- Would we book it again -- easy, YES, without a doubt, first choice! Awesome place in a superb location, welcoming and... More

On our trip from the USA we wanted a place we could rest and enjoy for a few days to get acclimated from flying. What a great choice we made! Chris and Teara were the best! Chris even rented a car for us so we could explore the island and that we did! Seeing all the other places we could... More

A surprise weekend away organised by my (now) fiance - Hilary & Peter (..and the delightful Ben)made sure everything was absolutely perfect for us both. From hard to find champagne to a private chef, their personal touch made the weekend one i will never forget. We will be back! Thank you!! x
