  • Amazing lodge and location

    Amazing lodge and location. Set in the forest with amazing views down the valley, yet only 6-7 mins drive to the harbour, beaches and towns for all supplies. Candy and Rawiri were great hosts, extremely helpful and accommodating. The seafood platter dinner that Rawiri cooked was amazing! One of the best seafood platters we've ever had. The lodge is very well supplied. No need to bring anything.

    A wonderful house in a beautiful and quiet location, with fantastic hosts. Rawiri cooked an excellent dinner for us on the first night with more than enough left over for the next day or two.
