Greg and Ali were the most friendly and welcoming hosts. We stayed with them for 2 nights. The B&B is centrally located, but still intimate, modern, and relaxing. Upon arrival, we felt as though we were meeting up with old family members. Ali and Greg recommended local activities, made sure we were prepared for our excursions with snacks, maps, and "torches", gave us great touring advice for our drive up the Coromandel Peninsula, and recommended one of our favorite restaurants in all of New Zealand, Bistro at Falls Retreat. After hearing that we tried New Zealand's indigenous feijoa fruit in a smoothie for the first time and were intrigued to try more, Ali made us feijoa muffins the next morning.
I highly recommend Waihi Beach Lodge to anyone looking for a pampered, beautiful getaway. You will enjoy each moment, but wonder how your time there passed so quickly. If we find ourselves in this corner of the world again, we will undoubtedly return.
