Fantastic experience. The Lodge was everything you needed for a great break. Peaceful, clean and tidy and great helpful hostess Fiona. Close to amenities and central to travel from for exploring the Island. Well worth the trip.

Great Barrier island is a wonderful experience, the people are friendly and there is plenty to explore . Our host at Aotea lodge was very helpful with suggestions for activities and eating out , it is a good balance of being available and giving one the freedom to explore .

Very comfortable unit with lovely surrounds and good bird life - Kereru, banded rails and Kaka all seen out the window. We booked a package through the information centre, with included rental car, accomodation, and flights and the price was good - info@greatbarrierisland.co.nz - probably the best way to do it. On a weekend where a lot of people didn't have cars because a local company was forced to stop trading, Fiona, the host at Aotea Lodge, made sure we had one. Great Barrier as a destination is fantastic but having the help of a local makes it easier and none could be more competent or helpful than Fiona.

Our stay at Aotea Lodge was great from our first contact with a query till the time we left. Fiona provided great customer service and our accommodation suited us perfectly. Convenient for getting around, but very quiet and peaceful.
The package deal of flights, car and accommodation is good value and reduces the hassle of planning.
I would recommend this Lodge to any visitor to Great Barrier!

We stayed there for 7 nights. The purpose of the trip is get away the city and stay somewhere quiet and beautiful. The lodge is very good, it is like a beach house, it built for holiday. There is kitchen in the apartment so you don't have to worry about going out the whole time as there are not many restaurants in the island.

Fiona - the owner is very nice, friendly and helpful. She helped us to arrange shuttle for pick up and drop off. Anything you ask for, she will figure something out for you. We were so glad we stayed there as that's the best location you can get in the island. 5 mins walk to dairy and souvenir shop and Irish pub which open 4pm everyday. And Wild Rose cafe which open for breakfast and lunch til 3pm everyday.

Hi Sisi
Thank you for your lovely review. Yes, the lodge has a great setting - close to the beach and other amenities, but at the same time, very quiet and private.
It was great to meet you and it was a real pleasure to have you stay.
Fiona - Aotea Lodge
