As all the other reviewers have said, this view cannot be beaten. Beautifully clean and well appointed room. Extremely comfortable, warms up quickly. Hot spa on the deck = awesome!! Tarltons Lodge is a little out of the way, but we knew that when booking. That said, it would be good if the fridge was a little bigger to ensure...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful little lodge. You couldn't help but feel relaxed while sitting in the spa taking in the tranquil view! Dan and Natasha were extremely friendly and willing to help in anyway possible while still respecting our privacy. I couldn't recommend it higher. It certainly felt like we were a world away from the...

Had a wonderful stay for 5 nights at Tarlton's Lodge and the view from our bedroom of the sunset and sunrise was breathtaking and having our own spa was a great way to chill out at the end of each day. Natasha & Dan are a lovely couple and made us feel very welcome. Due to the weather during our...

My husband and I decided that I needed a rest after trekking the Kokoda Trail in PNG so we came over to the Bay of Islands and stayed in this amazing B&B. Natasha and Daniel are amazing hosts. The rooms are fantastic and views breathtaking. The daily choice of breakfast made me feel very spoilt

While we only stayed one night the bed was very comfortable, the location was incredible and the view over the bay first thing in the morning was to die for. We ate at a local restaurant and the had no complaints. We went back to our room which was clean and tidy and plenty of room. We used the spa...
