This beautiful accommodation is very well appointed with top quality furnishings, bed-linen and towels . Peter and Katalina are most welcoming hosts and provided lots of information about the area, restaurants, activities etc. A superb breakfast is laid out on your individual terrace each morning and you will not leave hungry! Fresh fruit and cookies are always available. The private hot tub on each terrace is a wonderful way to relax after a busy day. The price to be paid for the amazing view is a short but rather steep climb up the hill from the town if you are on foot but some restaurants provide courtesy cars.

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at Tarlton's Lodge over a wedding weekend with family. The rooms are spacious and the views breathtaking over the bay. Peter and Katalina were excellent hosts and looked after us very well. The breakfasts were of the highest standard throughout. Hot spa was delightful after long days in the beautiful sun. It was an ideal rest pad away from main streets and traffic. Highly recommended for any traveller wanting to relax away from home.

My husband and I spent two nights at Tarlton's Lodge as part of a month-long tour of New Zealand. The lodge resembles a modern, spacious home, with three guest units located below the owners' living quarters, high in the hills overlooking the village of Paihia. Our guest room was lovely and hosts Peter and Katalina were most gracious. We enjoyed a delicious, made-to-order breakfast each morning, at a table on our private patio overlooking Paihia and the Bay of Islands. At night, we relaxed in a heated spa, located on our patio so we could star gaze as we soaked and sipped wine! We stayed at a lot of places during our visit, and Tarlton's was the most memorable!

This property sits on a hill overlooking Paihia and, in the distance, Russell, in the Bay of Islands. It consists of a private home (for the owners) and three separate accommodation units on the ground floor. Each unit has a hot tub and a separate entrance, great views and is quite private. It is only a short walk down the hill to Paihia, which is an activity hub for enjoying and exploring the Bay of Islands. The owners are delightful, well travelled and happy to give tips on how you might make your stay enjoyable including recommendations of places to eat. Breakfast is served on your private terrace and is delicious. We enjoyed our three night stay immensely!

My wife and I stayed at Tarton's Lodge, we were greeted with smiles and love, the most wonderful and loving host, we would wake up to our choice of delicious breakfast sitting on own private balcony looking out onto the beautiful views of Bay of Island, not forgetting your very own private spa pool, such a beautiful and most of all very clean place. This has got to be the BEST trip, thanks to Tarton's Lodge and it's host Peter & Katalina. HIGHLY Recommend!
