We stayed for three nights at the Colleith Lodge during our trip to New Zealand. Helen and Wayne were the most perfect hosts and made my wife Nikki and I feel extremely welcome in what was a difficult time due to the virus. Breakfast was delicious, with a number of home grown elements from the garden. Our room was clean and spacious with stunning views of the bay area. Canapés and wine in the evening were added bonuses . . . . the wine was superb! We were both very sorry to leave this beautiful property when we moved on.

Helen and Wayne, the owners of Colleith Lodge are welcoming you at arrival, and from there you can relax and enjoy the best of New Zealand hospitality. The Lodge iteself is an unique building with a location overlooking holiday homes of Tairua and with top 5*hotel standard. A delightful breakfast is served at the time you desire and the 18 o’clock canapees and wine tasting should not be missed. We are really thankful to Helen and Wayne for their hospitality and for the 3 days we stayed at Colleith Lodge.

Thank you for your lovely review. We thoroughly enjoyed your company and all the conversation over wine in the evenings. The photographs you sent were fantastic, you will obviously have a marvellous record of your time "Down Under". Safe travelling home and we hope you're able to come down our way again.

If Colleith Lodge is within your budget we can't recommend it highly enough. Set above the estuary and beach in beautiful gardens, the position is unbeatable in terms of views. Helen and Wayne are great hosts, with every attention paid to detail with the very high quality furnishings, and stylish works of art, craft and sculpture everywhere, Breakfast is taken on the terrace, or in the 'conservatory' (actually a large wooden-roofed room with huge windows), and supplemented with fruit from the garden. There is also a pool on the terrace and jacuzzi for guests' use. A highlight of our stay was joining our hosts for evening conversation with canapes and drinks (some excellent wine - thanks Wayne; and also to Helen for the thoughtful and delicious food she had prepared), after which one can go down into the village for dinner - and some interesting restaurants to choose from.. Though close to Aukland, the Coromandel Peninsular is an unspoiled area of scenic walks, interesting beaches, and delightful drives to all manner of interesting places. We just wish we could have spent a week here at the end of our epic drive up from the south. Helen and Wayne really do welcome you into their home, and nothing is too much trouble. We hope to see you both again!
