This is one of the few places left which is free from all cell phone frequencies & wi-fi-a perfect place to re-charge & relax.Broadband internet is available close by if needed .Also a phone for emergencies.

Bethells Beach is a wild beach with black sands-great for surfing &.waliking-only 6 mins drive away.There are amazing bush walks at Cascade Kauri only 5 mins drive & a lovely cool river for swimming.

    We stayed at the totara lodge for 2 nights and it was amazing. It was a great experience. The view from the cabin at night was magical especially with the fire on place. A beautiful place to getaway, romantic too!

  • Excellent Eco-friendly facilities

    Excellent Eco-friendly facilities. Bedroom was nice and warm, and the covered-in kitchen area was also warm thanks to the little fireplace- the perfect place to relax and watch the rain fall amongst beautiful scenery. A 5 star "glamping" experience.

    Like peace and quiet, bird life and being surrounded by the outdoors-then go here! Don't be put off by outside fire/shower/kitchen, it's warm inside the cabin with just a duvet (end of winter too), and the fire heats the entire kitchen/dining room area in seconds! Loved this place!

    The cabin is beautifully sited on a gentle slope overlooking the bush clad valley. It was an absolute pleasure to sit in the outdoor kitchen watching the weather blow across the trees. Even in mid-winter the kitchen was comfortable and practical and the fire was a treat in the evenings!
