So good to hear your Wedding Gift proved to be just what you needed. Top notch is such an accolade as well. Kerikeri is a great unsung destination for any time of the year as you found out. It was lovely to have you stay with us and when you next need a top notch get-a-way we shall look forward... More

It will be a delight to welcome you back to 88 next February. We shall be very much looking forward to it. As with most visitors to the Bay of Islands insufficient time was allowed to really take in this wonderful area and we are so pleased you are coming back again.

Tranquil setting, beautiful gardens, fabulous breakfast (thanks Chris!). Geoff and Chris have created a high-end experience with a casual warm comfort of almost being at home. High quality cosy rooms, stunning shower room, pool and gardens to relax and find yourself in, convenient to Kerikeri and Waipapa and with Pahia only 30 meandering speed minutes away. Spoil yourself just a... More

Your review is such a special one because not only did you enjoy your stay at 88 but you have now also moved into the area. In fact, you are the last in quite a long queue of guests who have fallen in love with the area and decided to move in. We have now actually lost count but it... More

This was our second time at 88 Lodge and it felt like catching up with old friends.

There is always something else to experience in Northland, meaning that your next visit will also be something special. Until we meet again……. More

Nice room, perfect breakfast and great hosts. Quiet location in beautiful area. Very friendly and helpful. Ask hosts for restaurant tips and tours. They know the region best. Enjoy the beautiful garden and pool. Rooms are clean and good wireless internet.

Thank you for your lovely review. Thank you for particularly mentioning the WiFi. Communication is so important in all our lives that without a good quality high speed and of course FREE internet connection it is rather like having an accommodation without any water! And none of us would want that. More

Located on the edge of Kerikeri in beautiful garden the 88 Lodge is a very pleasant place to stay. The rooms are not overly large but are immaculately furnished and kept.

We remember you well and the circumstances around your early departure.

From the moment we pulled up at 88 Lodge, we were delighted with our choice in B&B!! When we were researching B&B's in the area, we were a little apprehensive at first because of the location, however, as we soon found out, there was no need to be as 88 Lodge is actually located within easy and short driving distances...
