We had a fantastic time in your lovely homestay. Staring at your beautiful mountain view made us feel like we were in Lord of the Rings! Such lovely mountain walks we enjoyed also. Your company and conversation made our stay very enjoyavble and what a fabulous art collection. Very friendly, helpful hosts with their beautiful cats. Highly recommended.

I stayed at Whare Ora Lodge back in July of this year, and it was exactly the break away I needed. Warm, comfortable rooms, stunning views and a gorgeous garden to relax in.

My weekend away at peaceful Whare Ora Lodge was fantastic. Not only did I return to the city completely refreshed, but I took with me a new recipe to try at home. Our hosts were so friendly and kind, and I was delighted with my luxurious bedroom with the most amazing view of Mount Ruapehu. We were able to take...
