Welcome to a superbly appointed luxury self-catered holiday home. Nestled in mature secluded grounds, the house sits just a 200m flat walk from Kowharewa Bay beach on the beautiful Tutukaka Coast, gateway to the famous Poor Knights Islands.

Kowhai Lodge contains all modern conveniences, including a spa pool (Jacuzzi), petanque and lawn croquet grounds, bar-b-que and outdoor furniture, and is maintained to a high standard by the owners all the year round. Indoors, the spacious open plan living, including modern kitchen, allows excellent indoor/outdoor flow to two north facing, yet sheltered decks.

Excellent diving, fishing, watersports, and safe swimming are available, and guests have the complimentary use of kayaks, fishing rods and golf clubs.

Close by are shops, restaurants and beauty spa facilities, as well as charter facilities for fishing, diving and day trips to the Poor Knights. The local golf course is ten minutes away in Ngunguru, or players can enjoy 18 hole golf at four other well appointed courses in Whangarei.

The Lodge is fully equipped and furnished, and owners are close at hand to assist you and make your stay as comfortable as possible, and can provide you with wealth of local knowledge.

  • The place was wonderful

    The place was wonderful. We were kind of shocked when arrived at the location as we didn't expect it to be so lovely. The welcome was so great before we arrived they even went ahead and light up the fireplace to warm the place up. From welcome to our checkout, everything was perfect. We will definitely be coming back again to stay more than 1 night. Once again Thank you!!

  • The house has perfect location if you like quite and peaceful places,...

    The house has perfect location if you like quite and peaceful places, yet really easy to reach town center where restaurants and shops are. surrounded by beautiful bushes and flowers. 2 minutes walk to the beach/bay. The house is so beautiful, well decorated. nice warm fire place will keep you warm during night time/winter, spa in the back yard gives you the best way to relax. We did not use the BBQ but the BBQ area was enjoyable and tidy. Highly recommended.
