Never visited the Kai Iwi lakes so my husband and I thought we would stay nearby. The lodge is just down the road from the lakes. You have your own private lodge in park like settings secluded and private. Fantastic views of the man made waterways. It has it's own movie theatre gym and spa although sadly the spa was... More

This is a beautiful property. We arrived late at night so didn't get to appreciate the beautiful surroundings until the next morning. Was a lovely little lodge on a lake, very clean and tidy with a bbque on the deck. Lovely hosts and beautiful swans to wake up to in the morning. Bed was very comfortable and room had everything...

yes, sometimes our lodge on the lake will not let you on your phone... although we have coverage through out the property, sometimes, because of the building materials, and the providers it just does not happen. Glad it turned out to be not too much of a nausance. As we see, the lake and its surrounds make up for the... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Kai Iwi lakes and came to the consensus that our stay could have been extended. The family agreed that the lakes were beautiful and a hidden gem of northland. The common areas on the property such as the spa, gym and theatre were great and were used often. We had a family unit... More

A special place you wouldn't want to miss! Spent Easter weekend here with a group of family friends (yes, 17 of us) and everyone just loved it! The peace and privacy, the fully-equipped lodges, the park-like gardens and to top it all, the most lovely owners who naturally make you feel like family. The kids had wonderful memories here with...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was most comfortable and comes with a fully fitted kitchen. Great bird spotting from the terrace with views of the pond.

Stayed 1 night in Lodge 1. Each unit is stand-alone, well designed and private with lovely views over the little lake on the property. Away from it all and very peaceful. Well equipped and comfortable. The stove, dishwasher and utensil drawer could do with an update, but otherwise functional. Flyspray or insect repellant is recommended. Lovely having all the windows... More

Wonderful place to just chill out and relax. Lovely view of farm lake. Very close to Kai Iwi lakes. Free wifi, which was very reliable. Lovely hosts who are eager to help. Walks are available around the area. No, there are no keys to the front door, this is the country!
