The first impression of Kowhai Lodge is one of seclusion and privacy. The relaxed ambience and green bush surroundings invite a complete change of pace. Re-energize your well being and health in a setting where you can relax away from stress and get back to nature.

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.

    As soon as you enter the gate you are surrounded with such beauty. The house and gardens are meticulously kept and there is plenty to do around the house with the various games and luxuries. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and treated you as family. This is a place I would definitely recommend to anybody and one we intend to return to.

    We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful bach, it is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The care put into this bach and attention to detail is incredible, we all loved playing croquet in the gardens and put the kayaks to good use. It was a fabulous holiday and we look forward to returning soon.
