Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)
Hi I'm Natalie and my husband's name is Brett. My parents owned the property and still currently live across the road on the hill. You will hear and see Dad most days working on their farm - they have farmed in Tapora since 1976, they started milking cows but now run beef. We bought the property and a couple of acres in 2013 with the idea it could be a holiday home for us and also provide an opportunity for others to visit the area. We currently live in Pt Chevalier, but we do go to the Lodge regularly because there is always plenty to do. Mainly by Brett :) And we do enjoy relaxing there.
Natalie purchased this Lodge in 2013
Why Natalie chose Tapora
Because the opportunity presented itself and it was too good to miss. Being able to have a rural retreat, handy to my parents and only 90 minutes from our home has been wonderful. Brett has a keen interest in design interior and exterior and he has relished being able to create a welcoming and relaxed space for ourselves, our whanau and friends
What makes this Lodge unique
Beautiful peaceful rural spot only 90 minutes from Auckland. I suppose I take it all a bit for granted, being a country girl and all, but many of our visitors have said they love being right in the midst of a rural area and feeling that they are getting away from it all

Kool, kitch, comfy and cozy. Everything you need for a relaxing retreat or getaway. Thank you Nat for creating a wicked batch. Definitely in my top 5.
Our kaupapa is providing a relaxing and comfortable space with a sense of fun and style. We love it when we have guests who are able to kick back and enjoy it. Thank you so much.

A great couple to deal with. Would love to have them stay again.
Absolutely brilliant stay!!
Everything about the Lodge is superb!! Right from the initial contact and the fantastic prompt email responses to my queries, through to the instructions and the history of the Lodge.
I stayed at the Lodge over a weekend with a friend and our combined 3 boys. When we first drove up to the Lodge I was really impressed with the layout of the grounds - and the space for the boys to run and explore. The internal of the Lodge is also amazing - with so many quality features, little details and well thought out additions. And the coffee machine - love love love!!
The bathtub is divine, the decks are fantastic for watching sunsets and sunrises and the general layout is fantastic!
We had an amazing stay and would love to come back again. I've stayed in loads of holiday homes around NZ, and overseas, and this one rates right up there for charm, creature comforts, lovely decor, practicalities and all the little added extras that truely make a difference.
Highly recommended! :)
