The Lodge on Waiheke - Stay Waiheke

 The property was very impressive with large open kitchen and lounge area opening onto a large deck as well as another kitchen and lounge just next door. It has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as well as a loft for extra accommodation if needed. BBQ and tables, furniture and great sound system. Everything was catered for including dishes to prepare food right down to coffee & tea. Really fabulous Lodge for a big group for a relaxed and enjoyable weekend away with friends!!!

Waikite Valley Lodge

 The place was great, great proximity to the hot pools, and a really nice place. Would definately recomend. 

A Place To Be: private suites & meeting rooms

 Our host, Eilleen, went out of her way to make our stay memorable. Her breakfasts were brilliant, setting us up for cycling each day. The large verandah created a restful relaxation area where we usually chose to gather. The property is a peaceful retreat after an active day with beautiful gardens and comfortable rooms. A perfect venue for a group of friends or for a special family celebration.
