Lodge | Westland District | #10423
TURN OFF YOUR DEVICES and unwind in our off-grid, no wifi, no cell, up-cycled tiny-house. Uniquely crafted from native and recycled materials.
Soak beneath the stars by visiting nearby natural hot-springs or lighting a fire under the outdoor bath.
Enjoy outdoor living on the deck or by the campfire/bbq.
Or stay in next to the cosy pot-belly fire which heats the water for the large-enough-for-two shower and shower by candlelight (wood and candles provided).
In the morning open french doors for great views from the handcrafted bed.
Take a tour round the rest of our organic homestead and sample our home produce to have a taste of "the good life" (free-range eggs, farm fresh milk and home-kill butchery also locally available).
Genuine West Coast hospitality from hosts who live on-site (40 metres away) but will respect your privacy.

We had everything we needed and enjoyed the off grid experience. Reading on the back porch, even when drizzling was relaxing under the shelter of the extensive roof. Do heed the Sandfly and mosquito instructions!
Loved it, the lodge is a real work of art and a pleasure to stay in. Super relaxing, soooo worth it :) would recommend it anyone
