We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wairua lodge and wished that we had booked for longer. Our hosts Tam and Charlie gave us a very warm welcome and their love for the place showed. We were the only guests but their attention to little things contributed very much to our overall enjoyment. The "treetop" bathroom had us intrigued and it did not disappoint. What a beautiful experience is was; candles, romantic music available and mood lighting into the ravine below. We actually turned the music off as the sound of the stream and the calls of the owls were just wonderful in themselves. They had wet water shoes to use for exploring up the river and along the forest paths on the property which saved getting our hiking boots saturated. They also had buckets and spades to borrow for a visit to the Hotwater beach, where we watched the sun go down from our own little hot pool. We also borrowed a powerful spotlight to find some Moreporks (owls) around the property at night, my partner loves owls and she was so excited at finding them. We enjoyed our room that was tastefully decorated, the electric fake fire giving a warm ambience, and extending the romantic feel to the place. The breakfast provided was also healthy and enjoyable. The winding dirt road, the steep approach and the ford created a real “away from it all” feel, making this a unique place to stay. It was equal best in our North Island holiday. Many thanks to Tam and Charlie for a wonderful 3 days.
