  • Fabulous property, wonderful location

    Fabulous property, wonderful location... perfect spot to unlock the secrets of the Tutukaka Coast

    Staying at Kowhai Lodge was like a dream come true! The house is very well appointed, beautifully finished, and it's location is an easy drive to both Tutukaka Marina and to Ngunguru. It has lots of space inside and out, and has a lovely safe swimming beach just across the road. This really is a hidden gem! The listing to my mind is understated and the hire probably under-priced. Visitors will definitely be very pleasantly surprised. We can't wait to come back.

    The house is awesome, it had everything we could have needed, it was comfortable and Lyn had even put up a beautiful Xmas tree for us as well as leaving lovely gifts for us when we arrived. The location is just perfect and we just wished we had booked for longer - this was even the view of our teens!!!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Kowhai Lodge

    We really enjoyed our stay at Kowhai Lodge. It's set in beautiful private, peaceful gardens and is only a short level walk to the beach, which is at the end of a sheltered bay - looks good for families and we had a great time on the provided kayaks. The Lodge has great character, is very comfortable and well equipped with a spacious living/kitchen/dining area, and feels more like a home than a holiday property. It's surrounded by terraces - great for idling away a few hours. We'd book again.

    The extensive attractive gardens at Kowhai Lodge provide tranquillity or various activities depending on what is required. The beach is just a meander away, kayaks supplied easy to transport. All in all a little bit of paradise.
