88 lodge is a wonderful place to stay if you want to explore the north of the northern island. We slept in the Nikau room for 4 nights. A clean and decent room with a spacious ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. Geoff makes an awesome fruitsalad every morning and the home made yoghurt of Chris is very special as well as his warm breakfast! You can order what you like best and Chris is more than willing to prepare it for you. Beside the breakfast we were very happy with Geoff's travel advices and therefore enjoyed our stay in the north even more.
Since we are so positive you will probably wonder why not 5 stars? I only rate 5 stars if the place is very, very special (atmosphere, location, food, service). The service in 88 lodge is absolutely much better than average and that's why I think they deserve the 4 stars. The "lodge" itself is absolutely comfortable but not extraordinary luxurious/boutique or whatever you call it.
In this case it are the hosts that make your stay special. We would recommend you to stay there!
