  • Beautiful home and location

    Beautiful home and location. There is nothing you would wish for that wasn’t provided. We enjoyed catered meals, the open fire made it very cosy and the heat pumps kept it beautiful and warm. The catering service we received was exceptional. Thankyou for making our stay perfect.

    Stunning house! The house and finishings were of the highest quality and we all had an amazing time at the lodge. We spent Christmas Day there and took the complimently kayaks out on the lake before having a BBQ outside, perfect day! Would highly recommend Frances and the lodge, such a magical place!

  • The house is stunning and very well equipped

    The house is stunning and very well had everything we needed and more! It was clean and everything was in great condition. We appreciated all the basics in the cupboards that we were able to use such as spices and the toiletries in the bathrooms. The location was beautiful on the lake front and we enjoyed the outdoor fire. The soda spring hot pools were a short drive away and were amazing to have nearby. Thanks for a great stay!

    Kokako lodge is brilliant! We stayed there as a group for a team building weekend and it was perfect, a well appointed kitchen, plenty of towels and bedding and the spa and fireplace were amazing. Here is some of our team members feedback: "Amazing house – they have thought of everything down to all the small details. Luxury accommodation with everything you need" "Had an absolute blast – couldn’t have asked for a better place" "It was beautiful"
