A self-contained flat offers another choice of accommodation.

Horses are treated like kings with a selection of yards, stables or paddocks to cater for their comfort.

A 100x65m all weather arena and a 40x20m dressage arena is available to use during your stay.

A full set of showjumps or show hunter fences are also awaiting you.

A short walk down the quiet road to Ruakaka beach where 3.5km of sandy shores take you on a magical ride down towards the Marsden Point oil refinery.

Just a short drive to Marsden Cove marina where you can launch your boat and go fishing in some of the best spots in Northland.

We have a range of other accommodation on the property and can sleep up to 17 people in our boutique cabins.

    The lodge was great, we felt safe, it was very private. Easy to find location. The kitchen and toilets are clean. We will definitely go back and recommend this lodge to our friends.

  • Good alternative to a busy backpackers or hostel, nice and quiet

    Good alternative to a busy backpackers or hostel, nice and quiet. The cabin was modern and comfortable, although disappointed there was no heater for this time of year, it was very cold. Would be an ideal spot for a summer stopover.

    Sorry there is usually a heater in there. I didn't realise it had been moved! It has been relocated now.
