Having just relocated to Auckland we were really keen to explore the Bay of Islands. We stumbled across Hananui online as we wanted to see Russell having heard so many great things about it. After a lovely friendly welcome we stayed 2 nights in the lodge with a view of the harbour. The lodge suite was exceptionally clean, tidy and super comfortable and has all the necessary essentials for a short break away. It's also in such a great location to all local amenities and restaurants- you are literally seconds away from it all. John and Rongo are very friendly and welcoming, and have an exceptional knowledge of the area. We borrowed a couple of kayaks one morning and paddled around the harbour to some of the more remote beaches John had recommended. We also made good use of the on site hot tub. Would highly recommend Hananui to anyone and we will definitely will visit again.
