Very comfortable stay with very nicely appointed units. Free WiFi was included along with Sky and Sky movies. The view is amazing, nestled in the bush. I had a very nice walk down to the beach in the morning. We did dinner in the town. Can recommend Waoku Lodge

A fabulous place for our 1 night anniversary stay. We were lucky enough to arrive on a cloudless afternoon. The view from our wonderful apartment was amazing. The service and the food were exceptional. A great place to relax and enjoy the surrounds.

Its a beautiful part of NZ and should... More

Sharon had allowed an early check I which was very kind and welcomed us on arrival.

Arrived after a busy morning surfing to a friendly welcome, gorgeous views and a well equipped apartment. We opted for the in house dinning which was fantastic, especially the seafood platter. We will be back!
