Units were spacious, well furnished & clean. Our family had 2 units, both with lovely views over the bay. We had planned to use the free kayaks, but the tide was very low when we arrived, and we had to leave the next day before the water was deep enough. There is no where for children to play in the...

Nice welcoming place to stay, room had an awesome view of the harbour. Rooms needed a bit of airing and a little rough around the edges but cant fault the friendly service. Would definitely stay again. Very affordable accommodation for a weekend away.

The first impression of any accommodation is important. The location is good but the personal welcome lacked enthusiasm or effort. A friendly smile would have helped after a long day of travel. We booked & had 'confirmed' 2 -one bedroom apartments for family through 'Booking.com' website. On double checking our accommodation before leaving home, we found that even though the... More

The views are spectacular. Fascinating watching the tide roll in and out. It is south facing so cold. The heater in the bedroom did not work. We found the instructions under the bible in the drawer when we packed up to leave. Kitchen is well equipped. Otherwise very basic. The linen in the lounge was dirty had blood stains. !!... More

Paku Lodge is situated near the sea, only a small road in between. We got beach towels and had a short bath. There is a nice walk along the coast , private houses along the hill. Later we enjoyed the wonderful view!

Very quiet, little need to leave the immediate during the day as it is adjacent to the beach and day time cafe's. Good walk and fabulous views. Only drawback is you have to drive into the town for dinner in the evening. Very clean and exceptionally quiet. Bicycles and canoes for use if required!

Awesome location, across the road from the water. Great views of the marina and the boats coming and going. Amazing sunset view from room. Room was a great size with all amenities. Bathroom was a bit small for 2 people at once but otherwise no problem. Free bike and paddle board use.
